I thought I'd show you my latest charity shop find on this grey, dull and cold January day. It's a lovely pop of vintage sunshine to cheer you up and make you smile.
I haven't been very active in my charity shop hunting for quite a while now; this is mostly a conscious decision to not bring more 'stuff' into the house. I need to clear the decks, de-stash, slim down, cull clothes and lighten up. I need to be a lot more selective in what I buy and make sure it earns it's place in my home.
But then last week I find myself pottering around a local town with my current husband and in the blink of an eye, I've slipped into the door of a CS and stumbled across this lovely old dinner service. Two large platters, a gravy tureen, dinner, tea and side plates, all hand painted with pretty spring flowers.
I tried to be good and started out the door, wistfully remarking to my CH how much I loved it. Bless his heart, he whipped out a note from his wallet and indulgently indicated that I should go back in and buy it. Hurrah! One very happy Gal. The dresser in my kitchen is a bit small for displaying the dinner service, but I couldn't bare to stuff it away in a cupboard, so there it sits. It's a little promise of Spring and the warmer days to come. I can't wait to get sowing flower seeds and planning for the vegetable plot. Happy days.
Hope this little bit of Vintage Sunshine has brightened your day.
Keep your pecker up! Galx
