First up this little green cup and saucer set. Oh so precious to me. It belonged to my Nonna and was enjoyed by my Mum along with many other treasures after my Nonna died-a long time ago, I was just 13.
I had always loved that little teacup and saucer and often said so. For my 30th birthday my Mum finally gave it me.
When I was cleaning, I accidently knocked it off it's home and the saucer broke. I was devastated. I phoned my Mum so upset and sorry I hadn't been more careful. She was disappointed as well but told me to gather up the pieces and Dad would fix it. She instructed me not to do it, not to let the Mr do it, but to bring it home to Dad because he (apparently) is really, super dooper cool at super glueing things back together. Who knew?! She assured me you would barely be able to tell.
Apparently this skill has been lost at some point during his lifetime because his you beaut super glueing efforts were as dodgy as they come.
The Mr and I still laugh about it to this day.
Now here's the good bit.
Last year when BF and I were visiting the Mill Markets I spotted this little lone saucer in the same design as my broken piece for just a few dollars. I was certain it was a match for my set. I could hardly believe my luck. Some 7 years later..to find a little lone saucer needing to be reunited with the set. It is the same design and has the same stamp on the bank but the circle inside the saucer is ever so slighty larger than the original so I am thinking maybe it was for a coffee cup in the same set but I don't know.What do you think?
Anywayyy big claps to you if you read that marathon story.
And to wind it up...a few more bits of green collected from my craft space.
Visit Punky and Me for more green fun!
