Your Baby Blues Would Flash and Suddenly a Spell Was Cast

When my sister asked me if I wanted this tea set, of course I nearly bit her hand off.  Baby blue - check, vintage and pretty - check, free - bonus!

I was amazed to find out that they actually originally came from Dunhelm Mill and are not vintage at all. - who'd-a-thought it!  I'm still chuffed to bits with them and they match my kitchen perfectly.  I can just imagine serving afternoon tea in these along with a fresh homemade Victoria sponge on one of the dinner plates. So very British and refined.  Like Miss Marple and Dolly Bantry!

I just thought I'd share!

Here's what I wore today

Nautical style dress - Next sale
Cardi - M&S outlet
Tights - New Look
Boots - Tesco
Bag - Charity shop (adorned with scarf also from charity shop)
Vintage hand painted wooden brooch - Ebay
Bangles & Bracelets - mostly Primark
Necklace - Accessorize, better view here

See you soon
