More presents!!!!

Had quite a few pressies over the last couple of weeks......this beautiful embroidered 6ft tablecloth off of my son and partner........
I threw it straight on my table and photographed it, after an iron the wrinkles disappeared.
They also bought me a beautiful bunch of flowers which i put in an old wash jug which they bought me as a present last year.
This jug is HUGE, but filled with flowers is amazing. Many people may be put off by the size of these jugs but if you ever have the chance to purchase one I urge you to go ahead and do it!!!
I have many different size of jugs and vases but my flowers have never been displayed as wonderfully as in this jug. The huge washbowls are useful too........imagine one filled with ice and bottles placed in it, an ideal party bowl!!!!!

The Better Half came home with this rosy cake plate that is just too pretty to sell,
Don't you think its wonderful!
A great excuse for a Vicky sponge methinks!!!!!
