The twins and I have been away for the week in Cheshire staying with Grandma but this didn't stop me having a little browse around an amazing Antiques Emporium up there. Most of the items although fab, were priced out of my comfort zone so I only picked up a cup and saucer for £2 and a set of 3 plates for £2 (will post them at a later date) . Back home and up early on Saturday as I had a mountain of customer orders to post and no food in the house. (well can't expect hubby and No1 son to shop, clean etc for themselves when I am away) ! I had the perfect excuse to "have a little look" in my favourite shop after the post office.
I must say I am finding less and less these days on my trips but I did find these pieces which follow a bit of a blue theme and make a lovely selection to include on romantic picnic for two. Hubby and I don't get much "us" time these days and we both miss and need it. So I dream if ever there was a chance for us to get away from it all, I imagine us sat under a weeping willow tree, by a river, sipping wine and eating strawberries.......
Blue Celeste Meakin plates set of four for £1
Blue pressed glass Cake stand ( used as a plate for the strawberries) £1.50
Two pretty pale blue candle votives for £1
Pretty Bluebells picked from the garden and popped in an old bottle. Simple, stunning and free.
and the song we would play .......
I'm linking up to Magpie Monday pop over and take a look at all the other great finds.
