Rose print tea set £3.50 for the set
People keep asking me why I buy so many tea sets, this particular set illustrates just why as sadly I broke the handle off one of the cups washing them up. I'm heavy-handed like that, it's an occupational hazard when you're a sturdy girl like me. It's ironic that some of these sets make it through decades with no damage and yet a couple of hours in my care and I become the proverbial bull in a china shop, lucky they're so cheap!
Pressed glass jar £3.00, I'm currently using it to store sugar cubes
Six cake forks £1.00Cheese knife 20p
Pretty tray, lace doily between glass 50p
Large glass jelly mould £1.50
Mary Quant-esque glass flower bowl to match two others that I picked up a couple of months ago, FREE!
A toy ironing board for Missy, in perfect condition but I have since revamped it £2.50
And finally this diddy little display unit, that was sold to me by the ever-charming Mr B for £1.50. I've been looking for something like this for a while but they can be quite pricey, so I was glad of this real bargain. I'm going to decoupage it (watch this space) and use it to display all the little gifts and keepsakes that Buster (and eventually Missy) make out of lego and scraps of paper etc for me that are piled precariously on top of my full-length mirror or taking up space in my bureau
