Urn envy

I sell a lot of antique urns and it's always hard to let them go. There is just something about their shape that I love, even when they are empty. I do have one (finally) at my own home. It is sitting in the middle of my unlandscaped yard, looking lonely, but it is beautiful. Some day it will be a gorgeous focal point, full of glorious plants spilling over the rim. Here are 2 of 5 urns I picked up last week plus some others in the shop. Then a few photos of urns in their "forever homes". Do you have "urn envy" or have you satified th crave? Leave me a comment!

I love the ironstone(?) cup and saucer with the blue anchor on the cup. How much are they and how do I go about buying them? Sam

Urn envy here! I know they reproduce urns now that rival the old ones but I still love the old crusty ones the best! It's hard to find them in my part of the world and very expensive when you do.
