Tea, anyone?

I've been on the look out for some nice vintage tea cups in the charity shops and spotted this lovely tea set yesterday. I wasn't looking for a whole set but this one was really pretty (without being over the top elaborate), good quality bone china, in really good condition and complete (which is quite rare when things are easily broken) so I bought it.

Twenty-one piece vintage tea set, comprising 6 teacups, 6 saucers, 6 plates, 1 serving plate, 1 creamer and 1 sugar bowl.

The whole lot cost me a grand total of £5.25. If I were to buy new ones from the shops, I would probably have to pay around that amount for each individual item, so I am pretty chuffed. Now I just need to have some friends over for tea!

You have an open invitation for tea any time, and bring your girls too! ;)

Oh my god, what a bargain!!!!!!!!!! Am jealous! Feel free to invite me anytime. :-) Just keep count of your teacups and plates, I may just have to take one home with me.

I was, as people would say here, "pretty chuffed" with that purchase :)
