Hello Kitty Notebook.

Made for my Grandaughter's 6th Birthday, I thought this little notebook would be useful for her to keep in her school bag.

Wedding card

A little Wedding card.


I inherited this set from my Mother. This is a lovely set that originaly belonged to my grandmother. She was given it on her wedding day. As you can see maybe from the picture, it has been well used as the gold rim is worn. I just love it so much. I in fact found a lot of pieces to add to my set on a market stall and couldn't believe my luck.So now have a good few pieces. I just wish I could find a Tea-pot to match. It is Royal Vale fine bone china and has a pattern no 7911.

TIme for a nice cuppa! This is a little tea-cup I found in a junk shop and just couldn't leave it standing there on it's own. It only cost £1. Its fine bone china and in perfect condition too. I love the little roses. Made in England and from a set called "Lady Beth"
