Welcome to my mutterings to life in general and all that Jazz!

So this is my attempt at the wonderful world of blogging!

It will contain my ramblings of life, hopes, dreams and a smattering of what makes me smile!

So grab a cupcake, (hopefully one with zillions of buttercream!) a cup of tea and sit back and take yourself out from this busy life for a few moments................................

A quick coffee or Twelve! - Magpie Monday

Linking up with Miss Lizzie's Magpie Monday

Well here are again, I have actually just collected this weeks find! As it came from the internet and was fairly local.

Excited does not even come close, I could hardly believe it when I saw it and was aghast at what I paid.

In my craft room, I like to offer visitors cups or tea or coffee, now my tea cups are lovely Worcester porcelain on the other hand my coffee cups are pink and white spotted from Argos, very lovely and match all of the other spotty things in my room, but hardly a statement piece.

So imagine how excited I am to now be the proud owner of a 15 piece Liberty of London Coffee Set!

12 cups and saucers, cream jug and sugar bowl  and a coffee pot! All unused and perfect!

Beauvais pattern Mason's Ironstone coffee set made exclusively for Liberty's of London. 1989.

Coffee jug 10 inches to top of lid. 12 cups and saucers. Cream jug and sugar bowl. The coffee cups are the size of espresso cups which is great as lots of my friends drink espresso.

Bargain of the year I think !

Anyone for coffee?


  1. You've got to love a bargain tea/coffee set, I've found a couple in the last few weeks. So nice to drink from proper china too.

  2. Oh yes Chris Tea and Cakes , could not agree more, the lady thought I was a dealer lol! Said I wasn;t and that they would be loved and treasured.!
