magpie monday :: gypsy stash

If you have been following me for a while, you will know that I love Denby Gypsy pottery and have been slowly collecting bits over the years. Well my collection has just had a HUGE amount added to it!

Steve sold his van last month and is treating each of us to a present ... mine was a lovely lot of Denby Gypsy that he found on Facebook ... all for £50!

I must admit, I felt pretty overwhelmed especially when he didn't stop there and found me some mugs, serving dishes and bowls too ... I am now pretty set up and have had to have a good clear out of my crockery cupboard to make space for it. I have decided to not just save it for special occasions but to enjoy it every day! It would only come out at Christmas otherwise, and I do not have the space for that much crockery to only be used very occasionally.

It makes me happy every day now ... there are still bits we need and obvously when things get broken, I can have fun finding pieces to replace them!

What pre-loved bargains have you found this month?


I love reading your comments ... thank you xx
