Egad! Kitchen Colour and Vintage Haul.....

 I am NOT safe to be let out alone.
Somebody wrap me up in bubble wrap and post me to Iceland.
Seal up my Piggy Bank and smack my hands.... i am a bad bad person
(tee hee hee)
SIX sandwich plates (or cake plates, ya know) SIX saucers but only FOUR tea cups.
I can live with the loss of 2 cups. Hauled / saved / salvaged from the local Recycling Centre for £2

 I have been badly in need of a ladel and there.... sat waiting for me in the Junk Box... a pretty green enamel ladel and it is a fair ole size!

 Oh Be still my beating heart.
This kitchen prettiness hurts my eyes.

This smaller Mason Bowl was saved from another Tip Shop on Monday. £1 and the perfect size for smaller baking activities or SmallFish hands.
The "Jacksons" Tea Tin was a Summer Car Boot find - gorgeous Blue.
I have WANTED one of these Steak Plates for an age. So much fun. They make me feel jolly just knowing they exist. There were 3 but i chose just one. This was in a SALE bin at the Local Antiques Cellar for £4 It just makes me chuckle. She is a Mad Cow!
And this Staffordshire Bon Bon plate was also in the SALE BIN!
What a love. She was £8 and i felt it worth the money.
Beautiful Lupin Blue colour and the pattern is perfect.
I think my MrsB was with me today as it all seemed to fall into place.
I got my friend a gift too (belated birthday-ness and maybe Christmas-ness)
But that is all for the future...
Cheers. Enjoy. Go salvage :)

I was all 'well done' and then I spotted that ladle and my heart started beating faster. I am partial to most cooking utensils but ladles *sigh* and *sigh* again.
So happy that if I cannot have it then you, my lovely, have. I can just see you with your jars of chutney ladling away!

There i am, spooning great ladels full of homemade chicken broth - feeling all Jewish and terribly smug at my brilliance. then the garage phones and quotes me the repairs on my broken car....
