I have had many comments on the pretty pink cup and saucer in my header so I thought I would share with you the story how I come to have them.
I actually found 6 matching cups, saucers and plates in perfect condition (all wrapped individually in newspaper) in a cardboard box in the store room at our old farmhouse! Boy, did my little heart miss a beat when I was unwrapping them and found there was a complete set.
This is where they live in their very un-glamorous state in everyday life - they fill the top shelf of a very old shabby dresser I have in my kitchen- dining room.
As you all probably realise by now I have a real soft spot for china - mainly pink and green with roses!
Today I have set out my pink cups on a mirror off my bathroom wall - I thought they could do with a bit of bling so I added a few pieces I had on hand.
I set two of the cups up on my mercury glass candle holders to add some height to the display.
I love the way everything is reflecting in the mirror.
A piece of pale pink chiffon certainly fits in well with all these gorgeous treasures.
Can you see my keyring with diamonds(?) in the shape of an 'S'?
I am on holidays from my 'real' job at school at the moment but I'm going into my sister's gift shop to 'play' with some displays tomorrow. I'll take my camera to get some happy snaps to share with you.
