magpie monday :: CHINA AND GLASS

I am sitting here a very happy girl with a little pile of pretty china beside me ...

I bought these last week in town ... a set of 3 bowls

They have Empire Porcelain Co. Staffordshire on the back

... guess how much?? ... 3 bowls for 50p (charity shop)

... and from one of my favourite shops in town ... this little jug and sugar bowl ...

I have been eying them up for weeks ... well I succumbed and bought them ... £7.00 for the pair ... not sure if that is good or not, but I love them!
They are made by Colclough China and are the most delicious shade of pink :)

On Wednesday I had a lovely shopping trip to Hereford with my mum ... and got this ...

It is a tiny glass pin dish / trinket dish and perfect for my rings ... it was from a charity shop for 75p ... perfect condition and perfect colour ;)

Then I won on eBay this sweet little ring holder, in exactly the same pink ...

It arrived on Saturday and was only 99p ... there was a little p&p as well, but as it went so perfectly with the trinket dish, I couldn't resist!

This is them in situ

Happy thrifting!

  1. Love your trinket dish & ring pretty. I want to look out for bits like that for my bedroom makeover.

  2. Very girly finds and why not? Think I already have that jug and bowl amongst my late mum's boxes so must go and get it out and display it.

  3. thank you for your lovely comments x

  4. Hi, What beautiful finds! I realy like the little jewellery/trinket dish, I have one similar which I picked up at a charity shop, I also have a glass ring holder given to me by my MIL and it is really useful. Bx

  5. Oh such prettiness. I have had a glimpse of your lovely home now too, pretty pretty!

    Great bargains. Thanks for linking up x

  6. Really lovely pretty thing, I've a thing for pink too, but strangely don't have very much of it in my house. Think I might need to change this after seeing all this loveliness

  7. I am a china and glassware addict, these are fab items. x


I love reading your comments ... thank you xx
