This week Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge has the theme of glasses, cups and saucers. A lot of my favourite china and glassware is packed away at present but here are some I’d like to share with you.
This glass was given to me by my friends at the Op Shop at my 60th birthday dinner last month.
I bought these mugs a few months ago to replace ones I’d sent to the Op Shop. Life is too short to use mugs you don’t like.
David and I used to have quite a nice collection of old china and glassware from the railways. Unfortunately our old cat Jake jumped on a shelf and broke about half of it. I bought this saucer recently to replace one of the lost ones. Now to find a cup to match. The china mug has a picture of a British steam locomotive hand painted on it. We would occasionally use it for soup or hot chocolate but not often for fear of damaging it.
This china is part of a dinner set that I bought in the 1990s, It is not old or valuable but it is pretty and I like to use it on special occasions.
