Well on one of my many charity shop scours I came across the sweetest little coffee set, 6 little cups and 6 little saucers in the sweetest range of colours, all for the tiny sum of £1.99. The sales assistant and I carefully wrapped each one up in newspaper and I handed over my dosh! Within 3 feet of the counter I dropped the bloody lot, still don't know how and this is what remains :0( I know they were less than £2 but I loved them.
Just look how dinky they are next to my Cath Mug...
... RIPieces Pink Lemon and Orange little cups and saucers... *gently weeps*
On the plus side though I have finally won a little family battle!
See this monstrosity, well it's a rather expensive electric Baby Grand Piano belonging to my beloved husband...
... yes it lives in my lounge! I don't hate it per se, the only tune I get out of it is when I lean on the keys when I dust the bloody thing each week. But it is a proper eyesore, not sure if you can tell but it's huge and it takes up a big corner of my lounge (please pretend not to notice the clothes I pile up on it waiting to be taken upstairs).
Well, now it's gone! Woo Hoo, it's been moved upstairs to the attic room, still available to play but out of my sight. It's taken almost 10 years to get shot of it :0)
Now I have a big corner to play with and it's quite exciting, not sure how it will end up but I'm thinking a glass fronted vintage cabinet stuffed with old china and a cute little chair?
I found my cute little chair on Saturday!
I know it's a little grubby (even after lots of cleaning by me) but I love it's shape and it's really comfortable, it's by the Thomas Glenister Company.
There is a good chance I will re-cover it in something yummy and change the colour of those legs but for now it's making me smile in a piano shaped hole in my lounge.
