OKAY YOU CAN OPEN THEM AGAIN NOW!
Maybe it's something like this
Until then let me share some of my latest finds.
I've always loved 1930's glass - and this pink glass is my particular favourite
The mix of those wavy edges on the chrome base had me at first sight - perfect to go on my newly painted Annie Sloan chest of drawers in the bedroom (ooh get me and Annie!)
Then this popped along - obviously this would have to accompany the bowl - it's the law
Now sitting on the dressing table
Little Miss Pink is sitting on a gorgeous pair of curtains I picked up for - £1.99!
Can't tell you much more about these, I just loved the faded colours - what do you think the material is?
And on the theme of floral curtains - another pair
This time on more of a chintzy material but with a beautiful wisteria design
These nearly broke the bank mind you - an enormous £4.50!
Enough pink yet? How about a Melmex jug?
Popular in the early 1960's Melmex was introduced as a more robust material for traditional crockery.
Sadly the manufacturer did make Little Sis giggle
And popping in from the left field - a tin!
No idea of the age but love this little chap
Okay back to the orange.
Those of you who read my blog regularly (yes mum I mean you) may remember this
It's a tablecloth. It's orange. I couldn't decide whether I loved it or hated it but it was 25p. It obviously had a far deeper effect on me than I thought, unlocking a little orange door inside my colourfully capricious mind.
Because last week I spotted this
sitting next to these
all of which were obviously made to sit on this
I'm not sure why there are only five cups on the photographs - it's actually a full set of Bavarian china in mint condition - do you want me to tell you the price? What do you think?
I know that if I'd seen this a few years ago I'd have walked right on by but I think now I do actually quite like it. What's happened? How can someone who adores the subtle elegance of inter-war glass also have such a penchant for pop art flowers? Have I been tango'ed? What's next?
(P.S. It was £10!)
