We are in the very middle of Winter at the moment,
but we have had some gloriously beautiful days.
It has been raining at night and sunny during the day in between some cold ones
We have been able to sit in the garden ,reading and taking tea
I love using my china,especially the floral ones
We are having Tulsi tea today
I love the orange and pomegranate,but today it is the Indian Blend
Do you remember the beautiful collection of vintage linen I received a few weeks ago?
Two of the lace edged cloths were damaged.
I unpicked the lace from the damaged centre,and replaced it onto another piece of linen
Because it is Winter,the garden is a little dormant and my hubby has pruned back heaps.
I still found a little colour though which is pleasant on a Winters day.
I will take you on a little tour of our little garden
Taking you away from the garden for a moment
to see the start of my new collection.
While out thifting three weeks ago, I spotted this silver jug
I just loved it,but had spent my limit that day.
I thought, if it's there next week I will get it.
Well the next week it was,but alas I had spent again my limit.
This week,I spotted it again as I walked through the front door of Vinnies.
I knew it was meant to be mine.
I carried it around that shop,not to be sidetracked,and bought it.
I so love it, and thought it goes well with my chrome tray.
All I did to it was wash it in soapy water. I don't want to clean
it with silver polish as it is electroplated,not solid silver.
I love this stuff when it gets an aged patina .
I am now addicted and have seen some more nice silver pieces,but will
have to wait for next weeks pocket money LOL :)
