    I went to the charity shop today and found a very different assortment of items.
    There's a flower brooch, which is really tiny but a lovely dark peach colour, a little green box which I think is made from soapstone and appears to be from India and has a lovely little mother of pearl sort of inlaid design on the lid and now currently houses some of my brooch collection, (I didn't actually have a stoneware box, until I seen this, though I always thought they were popular!) This one must be a souvenir piece.
    The last item however is my absolute favourite and will be for quiet some time, I don't think I've ever seen such a pretty greyhound/whippet in all my life! She was sitting in the window looking plaintive so I walked in and definitely took home that doggy in the window. :P I adore how elegant and thin she looks, very fitting for what sort of dog she is, though I'm not sure if it's a greyhound or a whippet? She's a very detailed sculpt and her pose is adorable(I think she's seated and awaiting her walkies or a treat very patiently!)
    Cost- €12 ($14.16/£10.21)

      Awesome finds Lauren, like you I adore that beautiful dog - not an expert on the breed but leaning toward whippet? So very graceful and what an adorable face, love the full on last pic, great expression. The peach flower is lovely, and what a perfect brooch box it has a gorgeous floral lid - very nice!

      Thank you Newfld, yes I too am still not sure on her breed, but might be inclined to think whippet too?! And yes, I thought you'd appreciate the brooch! :D

      That greyhound/whippet is so adorable. I love little china dogs. How tall is this lovely statue?
      Do you have other china dogs? If so, I hope you'll post them. This one is just beautiful - fabulous find!
