magpie monday :: LOTS OF CHINA

Remember the pretty jug and sugar bowl I showed you last Monday? ... well I got a sandwich plate that kinda goes with it ...

It is white with a pretty gold trim ... only £2.39 from eBay

It says 'Mayfair' on the back ... not sure if that's a brand or where it was being sold ... will have to do a little research ... but I love it ... anyone for cheese and cucumber sandwiches?

Now from looking at my blog and previous Magpie Mondays you may have guessed that I love pink & roses and so I was delighted to find this pretty set in 'Utter Clutter' (fast becoming one of my favourite shops in town!)

The cups are quite little ... more like coffee cup size ...

... 4 little cups and saucer

... a sugar bowl and little dish

It was £8.50 for the lot ... not as cheap as Teri's tea set she bought the other week, but I love it and it goes so well with all my other bits :D

... and ... I got more ... this is getting to be a bad addiction!
These 2 little plates were from the same lovely shop I got the jug and bowl ...

they were £3 for the pair and so pretty I had to have them ... one is slightly bigger than the other.

... and then I got these little beauties ... a pair of place name holders / card holders / menu holders ... what ever you want to use them for ... 99p the pair ... so ickle and cute!

Happy thrifting!

  1. Thank you for the mention Maria :-) What a lovely collection of goodies :-) the rose plates and name holders are lovely. they would make lovely photo holders :-) something a bit different! The little tea set is about the same size as mine :-) tiny little cups but so sweet :-) isn't it nice to be able to treat ourselves to some lovely bits for our home? xxx

  2. Great finds! I'm a total china addict and the little rosebud set you have was a bargain, there was one in my local charity shop and they wanted £15 for it! :)

  3. Gorgeous finds Maria, I love rosebuds china too.

    Not bad prices either xx

  4. I'm a pink lover too. You've reminded me that I have some place card holders squirrelled away. We were given them as a favour at my SIL wedding, the they beautiful. Never thought to use for photographs....going to did them out. BUT out of reach of my Little ones!

  5. I love crockery and can't resist a floral pattern so I'm totally with you on these finds - well done!!

  6. Oh I love your pink rose side plates, I brought two similar plates last week at my local charity shop, and I have used them everyday since. Also the pair of pretty Rose little holders are so sweet! It sounds like my kind of shop. Lovely post and blog. Bx

  7. You certainly qualify as a Magpie with such pretty finds. Still love Utter Clutter shop name too.

  8. It really does look like that plate matches the milk jug and sugar bowl. I'd love to come round for tea and sandwiches :) Your china collection is lovely - and growing! And I love the place holders too (and your blog btw, will be exploring more!) x
