Hurrah! I am writing this post from my new office, in my new home!!
I can't tell you how great it feels. Yes, we're in a total pickle, boxes everywhere and I still can't find lots of 'essential' items. Sadly, there were casualties. A large percentage of my beloved jelly moulds didn't make the move - I actually felt tears pricking in my eyes when I unwrapped broken shards of pottery.
It's fair to say that the old man could no longer bite his tongue after unloading the 12th box marked 'china' - there were some expletives.
I thought today I would show you one of my most treasured collections. My Langley Lucerne dinner service has now been lovingly displayed on our 'new' kitchen dresser (ebay purchase).
I couldn't resist adding a shelf of horrors!
Each and every piece was sourced through charity shop, jumble sale, car boot or ebay purchase.
The design is over fifty years old and I love the fact that my family are now using it as our everyday set. How many families has this served over the years? You don't get history like that with Ikea china!
I want to say a massive thanks to Milk Chic for stepping in last minute and hosting last week when I was super-stressed out and wireless-less. I promise to go visit all the links asap. x
