magpie monday :: COME AND HAVE TEA

More china this week .... this lovey cup, saucer and tea plate ... I don't think the saucer originally went with the set, but its so close that it matches. It was £1.50, made by Royal Doulton.

I have been on the hunt for dinner plate size plates so was very pleased to find this one for £2 ... most I have seen have been £3+. It has Alfred Meakin, England on the back ... never heard of him!

... and this blue one only £1, made by Colclough from my favourite shop No.14

and this pretty little blue tea plate ... it was only £2

I also stocked up on some free newspaper DVD's ... these are great little buys from charity shops, they usually just ask you just give a donation for them (I usually give 50p per DVD ... cos I then give them back to the charity shop after a few weeks!)

I was very pleased to find Swallows and Amazons ... I loved it when I was a child and cos we used to live in the lake district too it is extra special ;)

Happy thrifting!
