Today we braved the frosty morning and went to the car boot. With two pairs of woollen socks and a pair of tights on under my hunters, i still couldnt fell my toes.
I am bad tempered when i am tired and cold. Really wasnt in the mood for carbooting at all. Especially when the place was full of smelly rude people, there was even a guy drinking a can of larger at 9am! -well thats one way to keep warm.. i guess. (just re-read this back and i am sounding terribly middle class.. but sod it! It wasnt even 9am on a Sunday!)
I spotted this set in a box full of other stuff. I asked how much it was, the guy said £20 and walked off. Didnt give me a chance to say if i wanted it or not. Pissed of, cold and grumpy i walked away. Then met up with Mr BooBoo Kitty, he had bought the whole set for £8!! Two tureen's, oval serving plate, gravy jug, six bowls, six side plates, six desert plates, six dinner plates.
I love the print, has an atomic feel to it. It is Meakin wear and the pattern is Roulette.
We have lots of china collections, i have one cabinet, full of my 'Granny' bone china and another full of Midwinter and atomic. But i never use any of it. But i have decided, what is the point of having a nice set if it isnt used.... so who wants to come over for a vintage dinner and cocktail party! Can only feed six of you!
Do you use vintage china? Do you use it all the time or just for special occasions?
