While strolling through the flea market last weekend, I spotted some beautiful porcelain in between rusty tools and kitchenware. The golden rims where shining in the sunlight and the bright colours, although faded by a thick layer of dirt and tea stains, shone through. I could not believe my luck. These fragile cups and saucers and butter dish where exactly my cup of tea. Especially the Adderley cups with its sculpted shape and pattern of pink blossoms and catkins, appealed to me very much. The Limoges butter dish is very pretty too and will look perfect on our Christmas table.
Speaking of Christmas, I could not resist draping a string of fairy lights around our mirror in the dining room. I have never been this early before, but the evenings are so dark that the house needs lightning up, to make it look more cheerful. The fairy lights, an abundance of candles and off course a brightly coloured bouquet from the garden always do the trick for me.
When will you start decorating for Christmas?
Wish you all a wonderful weekend!
