Welcome to new followers and fellow bloggers.
Thank you for crochet kindness on last post
I hope that you are all well and busy tra la la'ing whenever and wherever you can. Life busy here too and sadly lost umph for sewing at the moment - will try and regain umph asap as lots of things in my head to come out. I keep getting 'stuff' out ready to sew and then, after looking at it for a while, putting it all back again.
I might be thinking: 'What's the point?'
Best to start a post with a positive - it really draws the reader in I find....
Perhaps not all strictly 70s but you get the gist I think
By the way I always bake whilst using the bowl upside down....
and I ALWAYS rig up a tableau prior to mixing a Vicky sponge....it is the usual way of things.
I assume that it is the same the world over.
I have a few of these old Staffordshire pots - they mainly live in the children's bedrooms for 'bits and bobs'. I had to do a bit of rummaging for these photos!
A little change of colour palate here....some taken a while ago (hence the daffodils!)
We like to set the table a la 70s style (not really!)
I bought this Arabia Finland dish on the left in a charity shop (not such a great deal if I tell you that a friend of mine bought a set of these, all with lids and all different from a CS for pennies) - ditto the bowl on the right (£2.75 - still has its label on the bottom). Tablecloth was 50p from CB a few years ago.
More table 'displays' to come as we progress through the year
PS: A final hurrah -
This is a recent shop display from 'The Shop that opens slightly more than it used to open' (where I bought that very nice curtain fabric and was given a free pot)
I didn't catch the shop open and after a week the display had changed to something else
It now has a very nice 60s settee and coffee table in situ....
Anyway jolly colours - I bought a turquoise version of the yellow dish below just two weeks ago from a CS for £1....and dropped it whilst unlocking the front door...
I have a few Melaware cups and plates - I bought them when the children were little - it is unbreakable so good to use for everyday not just camping and picnics
