they have started selling a little range which includes a little mixing bowl and a butter dish..
pattern looks a bit familiar don't you think!
it reminds me very much of the Cornish Ware which i do really like but if i do see any i find its a bit expensive as the seller gets a bit carried away with the pricing of it!!.
anyways i bought this as my pretend Cornish Ware and i thought about buying the other little things that the charity shop sell each week so i have my own little collection!!
well then on Saturday me and the hubby and the two boys went and had a mooch round some charity shops in a little village near to us ( they are quite posh there so the shops tend to have lovely things in!!) and what did i see when i stepped in .. but blue and white stripes..
my heart lurched as it does when it realises that something special is on the shelves!
so i abounded the pram in the middle of the shop and bounded over.. and yes it was CornishWare cups and saucers
7 of each and for £10...that's right £10 for the lot what a bargain i just had to have them didn't i...
so off we went around the other shops and then came home.
once we were home i went out and opened the car boot door to get the bags out and out fell a bag... containing the saucers.....eeeeeeeeeek
2 broke... i nearly wept .. i have to admit i did shout a bit at the hubby who had loaded the car up..i couldn't believe it . it was like the time we bought a Le Cruset casserole dish from TK Maxx and when we were putting it into the car the lid fell off and cracked.. i nearly had a nervous breakdown at that one... (but i was pregnant at the time so hormones could be blamed for that one... this time i was just totally fuming!!)
here's the poor darlings.. looking very sorry!!
but i have to say...we still have five saucers and I'll just have to have a look around for two more wont i.. it will give me a challenge i suppose!!
