Vintage goodies!

Hi everyone 

As I said before, I'm on a massive declutter now and have rewarded myself with some vintage goodies. My aim is to replace the tat with things that I love and make me happy. I rarely spend money on me and this made a lovely change. 

I collect the woods ware in green (beryl) and found some more cups and saucers to add to it. 

The basket at the back is a sewing basket and I love it! I plan to keep this one in the living room so I can pick up my patchwork whenever I get five minutes spare. 

The sugar shaker is lovely...I make Victoria sandwich cakes regularly and this will come in handy for sprinkling the top.

I've been looking for a butter dish for ages and saw this glass one.

Finally, the cake plate is for our Sunday tea. We make a big point of having Sunday as a family day and Daisy loves helping me prepare for Sunday teatime. We bake together and make everything look pretty. The plate came with a cake slice too. I will share some photos of these items in use soon. 

Does anyone else collect old crockery etc?

  1. I have that butter dish - and the cake slice too. The slice was a wedding present 37 years ago, and the dish was bought[new] for £1.50 last year. Your square plate is very pretty.

  2. Very good choices! Why are butter dishes so hard to find? You found a wonderful one.

  3. Love all your purchases & I am sure they make you feel good too!
