I am a very lucky girl x No doubt about it. People acquainted with me know I am barmy about teacups...and a face book friend who I have never even met, mentioned that he wanted to give me some china he had. It was dropped off for me when I went to visit family and I lugged the box home...................
When I unwrapped the first piece I was delighted..A Royal Albert Old Country Roses tea cup, I had always wanted one, as I continued to unwrap piece after piece I was dumbfounded!!!!!
I contacted my face book friend and told him it was far too generous a gift to accept, but despite my reservations, he insisted , stating that he wanted it to go to someone who would appreciate it and use it.
And I most definitely cherish it for the rest of my life.....people are so kind <3
welcome to my blog!!!!
Thank you for dropping by....i will be blogging about my life in Devon by the sea-side, decorating my 1926 home, vintage treasure hunting from auctions, charity shops , recycling centres and the good old british car booty!! One mans rubbish is another mans treasure! baking, sewing, painting and probably the weather!!!! enjoy!
