Life, loves, family and home.
Oh, this prompted a dig around in the sideboard for me! I have a complete Meakin poppy coffee set that I picked up in my local charity shop for £10 a few years ago. I don't use it really, and don't have the space to keep it out on display. Thanks for reminding me of something beautiful!
I have a fair few things lurking in my sideboard too! So glad you have found something to bring you a smile! Jxx
Love that pot - what a super lovely auntie you have xx
Yes and she is very partial to a glass of wine or a whiskey Mac on occasion which is also good! Jxx
So, so beautiful. What an amazing Auntie you have. x
Cheers Jen- she is a great Auntie! Jxx
What a great present, it's lovely. Love the portmeirion too. xx
Thanks Caroline- that Portmeirion is my fave and was just about the start of my collecting. A story I will share one day! Jxx
Lucky you, it's fab! I saw a Meakin coffee pot at the flea market recently but the seller wanted 25 quid for it and I just wasn't prepared to pay that. I love vintage but I also love a bargain :-) x
I know Col- she didn't say what she paid but I bet it wasn't that much. Retro stuff is at such a premium just now. Sure one more affordable will come along soon, Jxx
This is a lovely pot, shape and pattern are great!! Don't you just love it when you get a present and it is just so right!
Thanks you! I love it too- its in perfect nick too. She knows me well, Jo xx
You have the coffee pot that matches my tea pot! :) We're china cousins! ;)
It is always amazing to know you read and comment - so thank you very much.
