Giving and receiving

31 May

They say, it’s better to give than receive.

I say, it depends what you get.

Yesterday, this beautifully wrapped package dropped through my letterbox…

… inside, a gorgeous set of tea knives from Three Jelly Moulds and a Wardrobe, given to me by Elizabeth from Rosalilium in her birthday giveaway.

They go with my cake forks from Rye like, well, tea and cake…

And the giving? Well, Laura from High Street Home received this from my giveaway and sent this cute photo via Twitter.

So on balance, if this week is anything to go by, I’d say that giving and receiving can be just as lovely as each other!

Free printable placemats for a vintage Jubilee table

23 May

I think these vintage printable placemats were probably designed with weddings in mind, but how perfect (and cheap) would they be for a Diamond Jubilee street party table?

All three designs are free to download here and can be printed straight onto standard white paper. I think tracing paper or brown kraft paper would look great too.

PS: thanks for all your lovely comments about the whole stripey carpet issue… I feel much better now and will of course share a photo with you as soon as it’s fitted!

Have a wonderful weekend vintage lovers.

I’m going on a mushroom foray. No word of a lie.
