Charity Shop Vintage Christmas




Things that make me go Eeeeep!
I think I actually did go Eeep! when I saw these cute vintage Christmas baubles in my local charity shop this week; £1.50 for 6 little balls of Christmas spirit, can't be bad.  


I just need to add some fine gold ribbon to hang them and Bob's your auntie's live- in lover.  I'd like to thank my lovely new daughter-in-law for introducing me to the word Eeeep!  


I really had Christmas on my mind when I found this Woods Ivory Ware china in my local and unbelievably, I went home to think about it over night!  I was there bright and early the next morning, praying that no-one else had snaffled them.  There were approximately 25 pieces of this china in superb condition, including lots of plates in various sizes, two serving dishes with lids, a platter and a jug.  The pastel green and white is set off beautifully by the little stars and rim; I believe this set is from the 1950's although it has a definite Art Deco feel to it.  I can see this dinner service on my Christmas table against a back drop of a crisp white table cloth and the best silver (we don't have any actual silver, but you know what I mean!).


 I shall have a few kitschy little visitors nestling among the candles and condiments on my Christmas Day table; I like deer ornaments and this little family were 50p and needed a home (and a clean).  If you look closely, you'll notice that whoever painted the eyes got a bit over excited with the eye liner and perhaps 'should have gone to Specssavers!'.  Just a bit of cheap 'made in china' stuff, but they can sit prettily next to the cranberry sauce.  

What's made you go Eeep! this week?  

Cheerio from Saucy Towers.  Galx

  4. I love the ornaments...they will look beautiful hanging on the tree.

    Nice dinnerware and deer pieces too. I look forward to seeing your tablescape!

    I'm not "Eeeeping" at all this weekend...I've got a very sore throat and touch of a cold, I think. I'll let the doctor give me the news tomorrow.

    Have a great week!
