My workmate Colleen's mum has been all over her memory and her house to find things that she no longer has a use for that she knows I will love and appreciate. These goodies came all the way from near Armidale NSW ... around 5 hours from here.
Again, thanks Edna and Colleen and I'll be sending Edna something as a thank you for her lovely thoughts in passing on these lovely items.
Here is just a small selection of what is now in my possession.
My absolute favourite item
and may I add there are FOUR of them!!! ...
I couldn't get a great pic of them but they are glass federal fruit jars complete with lids - pretty tall and PERFECT for the lolly buffet at the wedding ... after washing these I came up with a genius idea in paying homage to their previous purpose ... fill them with lolly bananas, strawberries and cream, pineapples and something like starburst.
The search for vases/jars is now complete!
plus 2 x actual!!! Mason jars ... I am so spoilt.
as well as ...
Cutlery to add to the wedding collection INCLUDING bone handled knives. Those things are like gold these days and I cannot express how grateful I am that she passed these on!
There are plenty more items I haven't showcased just yet but will do in the near future ...
And since we're on the subject, I'll also do a shout out to myself and mum for finding more great pretties for the wedding.
... plenty of Johnson Australia, some gorgeous Japanese teacups and some English Swinnertons side plates.
... more Johnson of Australia.
Thanks to all these lovely ladies for keeping your eye out for things that I love. I'm more than appreciative and beyond thrilled.
