When I was doing my kitchen and pantry tidy up I found all sort of things I had forgotten about.
Amongst them where a tea plate and jug; the final pieces from my parents original crockery set.
And of course they reminded me of childhood.
So I decided to add to them so that they might get used a little more often.
I tracked this down on ebay.
Its Midwinter Fine Queensbury Stripe. First produced in 1962 up until 1978.
I’ll leave you to guess when I remember it from.
And by the way my parents are still very much alive and well in case you wondered.
I like having lots of different cups rather than lots of matching ones.
It means you can choose one that feels right for the drink or the day.
And some are mostly just there to look nice and only get used occasionally.
Like this one. Lovely
