A green glass cake stand/comport for £1.50
Another jelly mould I have four of these and use them regularly.
A porcelain flower bowl I t needs a new mesh making and I will probably get OH to make one out of chicken wire to hold the flowers in situ. I love vases and flower bowls and love having flowers through the house Just sometimes cannot afford them. The dream home would have a dedicated flower cutting garden. This little bowl only cost me 50p
Seven little glass dishes that are quite pretty. I paid £2.50 for these and think that they will match some that I inherited from my Nan. In any event if they are not an exact match they will blend with those of hers.
Another cookery book this time on baking. Some very different recipes to those I already have. Including cream horns which I was taught to make at school. Simple to make from fresh puff pastry filled with home made strawberry jam and whipped cream or bramble jelly and whipped cream make a lovely naughty addition to the tea table. £1.
And these two glass cannisters. I collect these. £0.49 each. These particular ones if I remember correctly used to hold Maxwell House Coffee and were a freebie as a result of buying the coffee. I know because my mum loved coffee and used to buy this one regularly. She liked the coffee but was also collecting the jars. I inherited the jars she had left from her.
I do not have these in my pantry at present although I am adding to them as I find them. They are for the dream house pantry which will be substantially bigger than the pantry I have at present. The ones I have are in storage at the moment.
Even though I do not have room for them either I am still collecting the sweetie jars every so often as there is going to be a real need for these in due course for macerating fruit like damsons and sloes, for storing house pickled onions but that's another story.
Catch you soon.
