I brought yet another Pyrex snowflake pattern dish to add to the collection last week.
Call me sad, but I was really excited when I found it on the charity shop's kitchenware shelf especially as its in one of my favourite colours: turquoise. It had the added bonus of an intact glass lid too and all for a bargainous £2.00 - sound!
Another buy was this stoneware ink bottle that's ideal for displaying some of the garden's finest blooms so far. When I used to be a frequenter of Victorian bottle-dumps many years ago, these always used to crop up. There is definitely a stoneware theme here as a few days later along came another piece of stoneware - a jelly mould with a grape design...
... I've decided to use it as a candle stand in the kitchen. It was from the same charity shop as the ink bottle, so I wonder if they were donated by the same person?
Sewing-wise, I'm trying to finish a 1970s maxi dress as part of #VintagePledge2016
I can't share any details with you yet, as the dress is going to be featured on Kestrel Makes' blog at the end of this month - no panic!!!
