Today I would like to share my little collection of milk jug covers. The 3 in the front were crocheted and beaded by my Grandmother and the 2 at the back by my friend Ann's mum June. One has a little teacup and saucer crocheted on the top.I love them all. I have had tea with my Nanna on her beautiful front veranda when these covers have been in use. I think of these wonderful moments when I look at them.
The lovely pink 'Royal Winton' jug belonged to my Husbands Grandparents and was given to me by my Father-in-law as 'nobody really liked it and they used it everyday for breakfast anyway so I don't think it's worth much. But if you like it you can have it.' Well like it I did and I had never heard of 'Royal Winton' back then. It just that (a) it was a lovely pink (b) it was old china (c) they used it everday. It still makes me smile. I saw one at an Antique Shop in Victoria recently and when I looked at the price tag I scared myself.
