Books & Boats

On my way home from my brothers yesterday I had the choice to turn left for home or right to my favourite charity shop and of course I turned right!

I was pleased I did as I picked up 2 new Ladybird books for my collection (I think these are the best condition I've ever found any in)


and a pyrex gravy boat that matches some bowls and plates I already owned


I know we're only just experiencing some sunshine but I really see these plates piled high with a shepherds pie when Autumn arrives


Pin It Now!

  9. You're right the colours of that Pyrex are very mellow autumnal shades.
