on one of the forums i belong to i am in a swap with someone based in Australia. we share some interests and hobbies, but otherwise dont know each other!. i have to put together a gift parcel to send to her and she is doing the same for me. as part of my parcel i wanted to see if i could find anything in the charity shops to add to her box of goodies. in the last shop i did finally find something great – so much so that i really want to keep it!!.
anyway, along the way, some other things fell into my shopping bag!. i thought i would share….
these unused napkins i actually won on ebay for a few pounds – to reduce the use of paper towels
a pretty cut glass bowl that says Italy on the bottom
i got 6 of these soup bowls – there were 8 in the window but 2 were badly chipped so i declined those.
this little piece of oriental art appealed to me, the frame needs sorting out, but i just liked the cheerfulness of the picture – it speaks of spring and renewal.
got these two crystal bowls for a couple of pounds for the pair!.
and this isnt old – its Dartington Crystal and i loved the colour and shape and can imagine white or pink tulips in this next spring!.
once the swap has been received by my partner i’ll share what i got for her!.
