magpie monday :: LACE

Look what my mum got me a few weeks ago ... for 25p!!! from a summer fete ... pretty plate ... love it ... thank you mum x

and I have been on eBay again ... this time pretty doilies ...

These were only £1.20 for 6 .... they have handmade lace around them and perfect for a little project that I have in mind ... watch this space!

And these beautiful round ones were only £1.04 for 4 ... from the same seller

They are really beautiful and I am still deciding if I can bear to cut them up and do what I was planning on doing with them or just keep them as they are!

But I am very please with them :D

.... and then I spied these in the charity shop ...

6 tea plates ... 30p each! 'Fragrance' by Royal Stafford

My tea set is coming on nicely ... need some dinner plates and more bowls now really!

Happy thrifting!

  1. Well you know I love doilies! Those are very pretty ones and a real bargain.

    Love your tea plates too - they look like little scarlet pimpernel flowers on them?

    Thanks for linking up x

  2. Oh wow, i love your finds. i've been looking for lace doilies to make bowls from (a la Liz's blog tutorial). I'm also a big fan of floral crockery so am very jealous!

  3. Great finds and looks like your mum has an eye for a bargain too!! x

  4. Cute finds! I love your Royal Stafford Tea plates, I would love them in my kitchen. Great finds for 30p each! Bx

  5. Now I'm really intrigued what you were going to do with the doilies! I must look in more of the boxes in our charity shops, I normally just make a beeline for the kids rails, but I'm sure I've missed some beauties.

  6. oooh the plate is devine ! I found a lot of hankies and doilies yesterday. Not sure about cutting them up eek! But knowing how wonderful your pieces are I am sure you would make them into something really special xx
