95th Birthday, x

Just a wee one to mark a milestone for Nanna Carrie who is 95 today, so can't believe it, she is so young in spirit and an inspiration to all that know her. I am really in awe of her and can't believe that until recently she would even wear her high heels to walk quite a way to church, really just an amazing lady.
A very beautiful lady.

And what great taste drinking her tea today from Royal Albert china.

Another one of her china collections.

 I wonder how many of us are inspired by our parents or our grandparents out there. I was so in awe of my lovely talented Grandma Alice too, she was an amazing artist and crafter. And I certainly know that I didn't have a chance really not to be into vintage china as my Mom is a complete china hoarder. I'm sure it gradually crept up on her but in me it has manifested itself big time.

Think I may need to see the VCA.
(Vintage China Anonymous)

Although it wouldn't be quite anonymous would it!

Take care for now.

Green Shoes, Green Chair and Green Vintage China,

Green shoes, green chair and green vintage china.

Tuesday tip: It's so important to try and match up your teacup with your shoes!
Bonus points if you find a chair that matches too.

It's been a while, but I thought I'd say a quick hello to say hi and to say that I'm back on the blog.

Hope you are all well.

Vintage China Love,

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine now that the summer has finally arrived.
Just a small wee post to check in and say I am here still.
And that I'm still loving having my coffee out of vintage china.

And also cheeky truffles from sococcoa.

Have a lovely day.

Vintage Kitchen Utensils.

So loving these vintage kitchen utensils at the moment.
I have had this cream egg beater for a while but haven't used it yet, It's just been hanging up looking at me. 
I really must do some baking soon!
Just a quick one really to check in and say hi and sorry I haven't blogged for ages.

Love these vintage ice-cream scoopers.

Take care for now,

 Have a lovely day.

Jubilee Vintage Tea Party,

Ok, ok, this is the last Jubilee post, I promise!
Oystermouth Primary school recently had a Jubilee party for all it's former students, parents and supporters.
It was a fantastic turnout with so many people attending the event. Even former head-masters came too. Everyone really enjoyed drinking cups of tea and eating the most awesome cakes that all the parents had made. I may have got carried away with too many photographs of vintage china but if you know me and my blog posts over the last few years you would have already expect that!

Cool Jubilee poster by Rasa.

The collection of teapots is growing, the question is can you ever have enough?

So many cakes.


Lovely Meagan's flowers from Made in Mumbles.

A tad bit of tablecloth action.

My favourite vintage cake-stand.

A spot of Royal Albert.

Cheeky yellow bird.

Amazing looking cake - don't worry I didn't make it!

May pole dancing ladies on vintage linen.
Think we all should have tried a bit of that!

Ahhh that china cup doesn't go with that saucer!

Lady in yellow crinoline dress tea cup.

I can see the headmaster! 

More Sadler teapots?

Amazing Meagan.

Awesome Anna tidying.

Aaahhh finally time for my cup of tea.

Pink Sadler teapot.

Fab photo of glass cake stands.

All the little ones got a goodie bag full of lovely picnic food and treats donated by a certain lovely Rebecca T.
Just wow to your  brilliant and generous idea Rebecca :-)
They will certainly remember this day for a very long time.
Does anyone remember the last Jubilee?
Yikes am I showing my age!!
The whole school then had a fashion parade and fancy dress competition which was really good fun from the 3 year olds to the 11 year olds.

Looking at all the old photos. 
It was amazing to see how many generations and relatives had attended the school! It must have taken ages to gather all these photos from the archives.
My 93 year old grandmother-in-law was really hoping to attend the reunion and vintage tea party but was unfortunately unwell on the day. That would have made such a lovely photo of 4 generations who had attended the school!

Hello cheeky harlie.

As you can see it was such a fun afternoon.
It went by way too quickly, which is defiantly a good sign.
Well done to all the wonderful PTA team and parents at Oystermouth School.
You have raised an awful lot of money in a short time for a very worthy cause - (the playground.)

In awe.

Well done to amazing Meagan again too for just everything!!

Such a star.

Take care for now.

Oystermouth School Jubilee

Ok, ok, ok this is the third Jubilee blog in a row, but this one was so much fun too! This Jubilee celebration was at Oystermouth School in Mumbles, Swansea. As well as having good fun they were also raising money for their Infant's playground.
It was an awesome sunny day with Union Jack bunting and flags everywhere. I'm particularly loving Meagan's outfit and cake above. I'm wondering now, how much cake have you all eaten in the last few weeks! 

Hey wait, who is that! A big thanks for making a special appearance Elizabeth!
She did so well getting around the country!

Red. white and blue balloons.

Loved the red deck-chairs!

OOOh look who bought all their cake stands with them for the cake stall!
This time we went pretty melamine!
These cakes were such tasty cakes!

Red, white and blue fancy dress costumes for sale.

Nurse costume and blue sky.

Oh my word, the most awesome Pimms ever!

The lovely coconut shy.

Ooooh pick your own moustache stall! I'm sure this was the most popular event of the day!

You had to walk through this old wardrobe to experience all the games in this designated area! It was brilliant fun.

OOOh look how many ducks I've caught!

Doesn't this look a little like the Olympic rings?

Someone winning a coconut.

Oystermouth School with the castle behind.

It was a really lovely and successful Jubilee school fete.

There were many more photos but I'm sure you have all had enough by now!

Take care for now, 

Until the next Royal Wedding!
