Operation Cupboard completed and china finds...

The cupboard is complete and looking very vintagey green and lovely. Ive decided I am going to put my cd player on top so that Doris Day can sing to me while I wash up....
A few cupboard treasures... trouble is Ive got so many cupboards and so many treasures..... talking of which...
A rather fine Staffordshire pottery cup and saucer complete with a very interesting peacock design. I love the colours, deep burgandy and that special green again. The cup is in perfect condition and is HUGE....
An Alfred Meakin sugar bowl in Marigold design. The picture doesnt quite show how wonderfully vibrant these colours are. Both treasures purchased from the dump yesterday for the grand sum of £2. I also managed to buy an incredibly old copy of Through the looking glass hoping they will inspire the new bespoke Alice shoes I am going to design soon.


Last notes:
1. The opticians ended with me having to choose full time glasses. I decided against bi-focals and am having 2 pairs instead. My close work ones and then I will have my full time ones. Its going to very odd wearing them all the time. I hate choosing things and found the whole episode a bit daunting.... there were about half a million different styles to choose from.... Ive opted for simple, classic, dark brown and rather petite frames. With my hair up Im going to look like a 1950's school teacher..... yikes....


2. Chocolate cardigan going well. Ive got 10,000 stitches on long needles for the front bands. 5 rows of knitting to go and stitch on the buttons, sew up the side and arm seams and Im done!
