We are “oop north” staying with Grandma this week but I made sure I got myself organised before leaving home so that I wouldn’t miss this weeks MagpieMonday post again. I might even have a little wander around the charity shops up here to see if I can find any treasure for next week !
I am not known for my culinary skills but my finds this week seem to be conspiring to push me in the direction of learning how to make yummy food as Grandma did (well how she would have, if I had know either of my grandmothers) . My finds also happen to also be all glass too. I have lusted over some of the other Magpie Monday finds of beautiful glass pieces, so was thrilled to bits to find these items this week.
First up, a pair of beautiful French glass chicken egg cups found for 50p each. The photo really does not do them justice. They are beautiful quality glass and when sat on the window sill the light through them is truly stunning.
One of the things I really adore about collecting Vintage China is drinking my tea from a “proper” cup and saucer. I was lucky enough to find the complete set of these French cups and saucers in the most beautiful, soft pastel colours. I will feature them at a later date. The family think I have lost the plot but it really does make the tea taste better. When I saw this glass Lemon Squeezer I snatched it up off the shelf again only 50p and again French glass, I doubt its very old but its lovely quality. Lemon tea either hot or cold is so refreshing to drink in the summer.
The pretty silver tea leaf infuser was one of two that I found for 20p each. They look like they again have never been used and are perfect for a single cup of freshly brewed leaf tea.
Lastly, How wonderful is this glass jelly mould ! One thing I CAN make is Jelly ! Ha! I have even found this receipe for proper homemade Jelly and shock! horror! I might even attempt to make it . If anyone has more ideas for how I can use the Jelly mould I would love to know, salmon terrine perhaps ? now I really am getting outside my comfort zone !
Pop over and take a look at all the other great vintage and thrifted finds in this weeks MagpieMonday Post.
