A lot of our day-to-day kitchen stuff dates from the 60s and 70s.
This dish is used most days
For mashed potato
I think that it would have had a lid originally but as it was only a pound from the car boot I wasn't going to complain. The tablecoth is one of three of the same design that I have - all in a different colour arrangement!
Also comes in red - which I omitted to photograph
Still working on my tablecloth book..
Huffed and puffed my way through Kirstie's "Not So Vintage - But Does Need a Good Tidy Up (hark who's talking) Home" last night. In the first episode we spotted a framed tea towel that we also have framed in our dining room and last night the china that was shown at the end we also have (not including the Homemaker bits - those plates are our everyday plates as they are dishwasher proof). I think that spotting things that we have may be my only reason for watching it - that happens in museums too when the children say: "But we've got one of those...". I don't think that they can quite fathom why it should be in a museum....
I did learn something though - I was not aware that dipping the bottom of a nice basket into paint was a 'craft'
More Christmassy stuff on the horizon
Getting behind with proper job as usual
PS Thank you re: cards - I will do a separate little post about my favourite thing!
