I found these lovely little jugs and saucers and I just love them. They are so cute, unfortunately I think the saucers are for cups and don't quite fit the jugs perfectly but they are the same set. I bet it was stunning in it's day, Not sure if I can create anything with them as they are on the small side but I think they would look fantastic with a tea light in them Perfect for a cosy night in especially as the nights are drawing in now. Boo hoo! I'm a summer loving girl bring back my flip flops and butterflies.
I have two of these available, not listed as yet, contact me if you want one.
Hope you've all had a great Sunday was it a lazy one?Mine wasn't up and at em at 6 am! It was such a dark, damp and foggy morning not the best for energy and motivation but if has to be done if the early bird is to catch the worm or in my case the teacup. Alas it was all in vain not a decent pretty bit of china in sight but tomorrow's another day and tonight I get a glass of wine and Downton Abbey on the telly!
Here's a find from a previous treasure hunt.
What a fabulous Thursday it's been, my treasure hunting day and it's been a successful one. Only just finished sorting through all the boxes. You wouldn't believe the things I have to buy to get that one teacup but I do my bit and past it on to charity. Not sure they'll want a CD player/music centre though! I love the hunting as much as the creating especially a hard to find one so if any of you have any mustard yellow and teal coloured vintage teacups do get in touch. It's been 3 weeks now and I'm getting panicky, They're destined for a teacup table lamp so 3 would be nice. Not all my finds get the creative cottage chic twist some are too rare like these Beswick pottery 'Dawn Chorus' teacups from the late 1950's so if you have some at home hang on to them.
Counting down the hours until series 6 and that ting a ling of Downton Abbey. The loves, lust and lives of upstairs and downstairs. I love it, and I think that's what I find so fascinating about vintage china. Where has it been and what did it see? Was it in a amazing country house, a Victorian parlour or working farmhouse. I'll never know for most of my items but at least I get to love them for a little while. Until they can continue they're journey in this modern throw away, polystyrene coffee cup world.
Here's some vintage china fit for Lady Grantham.
It's a glorious sunny day here in North Lincolnshire, I'd love to get outside and complete a new bird feeder design but to much boring stuff like food shopping! What's everyone doing with their Saturday? If you're at a loose end today or Sunday you could check out the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show.
Look for the award winning Quirky cottage garden by http://www.johncavill.co.uk/ where some of my designs feature.
You could pinch a cake from the table set for tea, I won't tell a soul as long as you get me one of the lemon ones. Have a great weekend!
What a beauty this Quirky cottage garden is! Designed by http://www.johncavill.co.uk/ and his team featuring Pretty Vintage house bird feeders and vintage tea time accessories. We are proud to be part of the award winning design.
What a start for my new blog pages. After a request from local Garden designer John Cavill for some of my items to be used in his latest show design garden at the Harrogate Autumn Flower Show 2015, I have learnt today that he has received the prestigious Premier Gold award for his:- The Quirky Cottage Garden.
Well done John and everyone involved in his design it obviously was a successful team effort. http://www.flowershow.org.uk/show-highlights/inspiration-street/2015-autumn.
