I found these lovely hand-painted Laura Ashley flower cups and saucers in the charity shop last week.
The colours were so perfect I just couldn't resist them!
I also found the pretty vintage hand embroidered tray cloth and table cloth.
As you can probably imagine I was over the moon when I found this exquisite vintage hand embroidered picture. It had been pushed right to the back of a box of old picture frames (lucky for me). It was quite hard to get to so I nearly didn't bother. So glad I did.
Isn't it beautiful?
I can just imagine the hours of work that has gone into it and as a gardener I love trying to identify all the different flowers.
The yellow Mimosa is lovely and reminds me of home as my Mum and Dad used to grow one in our bathroom. I loved the little yellow pom pom flowers and the leaves that used to close when you touched them.
Last but not least this 1950's hand- painted plate (the date stamp is 1953). Again I just couldn't resist the colours and design. Hard to believe it is already 60 years old!
We've had a little break in the rain this afternoon and the sun is out. It makes such a difference but we have more bad weather on the way! Just got to make the best of it when you can.
