Its been one of those days I have been into town to do some shopping I have a regular route and before I had even started things were jumping off the shelf and into my basket and yet I was not particularly looking for anything. But I am pleased with what I have found. Much of it adding to or complementing stuff I already have.
First of all there is this very pretty vase. It reminds me of Portmerion there is a stamp on the bottom but I cannot read what it says I am going to have to fish the magnifier out. I think my eyes need testing but needless to say I am pretty pleased with the vase. It cost me £2.00
Then there was this pretty little headdress/wreath at 50p which I can utilise in my bedroom as a small wreath. I will probably add some pretty pink ribbon though.
Then there was this pretty three quarter sized duvet cover which is prettily embellished with lace and ribbon I have popped the headdress on to give it some distinction. £3.99
Then there was this pretty duvet cover again three quarter sized with two pillowcases. I was initially looking at this for a backing for some patchwork but I think I may leave it as it is as a spare for the spare bedroom. £4.99
There were then two large Kilner jars which will come in useful for my flavoured vodka experiments £3 each.
Then I came across 12 small coffee/tea cups and eight saucers and four large teacup saucers for under £7 the lot. Its the BHS Vine design. I bought a 12 piece setting when it was first available but have managed to break quite a few pieces and just recently I have been adding to the set. I am aiming for a 24 piece set eventually. I have also been trying to add the serving dishes and other bits and bobs I did not get at the time. So I am very chuffed to be able to add these to my collection.
When I was first married I was bought some of these glasses as a wedding present by one of my family members. I think they were originally from Timothy Whites/Boots and I have a set of all these glasses but when I saw these I just had to add them. £3 a set.
And two sets of Green Glass Hock Glasses. More green glass to go with my other vintages pieces and my dinner service. £3 a set.
So not a bad day all told.
Catch you soon.
