Op shop show off


A very quick browse the other day landed me these lovely Staffordshire cups. Both the colour and design caught my eye. They were marked $4.00
I actually had to scratch up some loose change from the car as I only had $2.00 in my wallet! As I was stacking them up to purchase, the lady yelled out 'all crockery half price today'.
There was actually five pieces to the set but somehow by the time I got them home one of the the saucers had broken. I managed to find a similar random saucer in the cupboard and it made a sweet new home for this little jellybean plant.


Linking with Max and the other op shop show offs over here.

I have cup envy! They are the cup and saucer equivalent of the mugs I found last week. What a score!

Yes the design is so pretty. Would look amazing as a screen print too. imagine all the fabric turned into cushions and bags.

These cups would go perfectly in the Bach I stayed in this past weekend. Brown and orange, straight from 1972!

Oh wow. What a lovely find. I love that you put some succulents in one of the cups.
