My Cornishware dream came true! In a fashion. On Friday I was on my way to Tesco and I decided to go the scenic route, ie go to the yarn and fabric shop first (I needed some cream and some yellow yarn. Honest.) and to bob in to the antique shop on the way. I try not to go in all the time because the turnover of stock is not very high. I walked all the way around it and I was just on my way out when there, perched on an old mantle piece was a Cornishware canister pot with no lid. As I walked towards it I thought to myself “If it’s a tenner I’ll buy it!” and I got there and it was £12. What’s £2 between friends? I didn’t have any cash on me and I didn’t want it to be sold while I was at Tesco so I erm, hid it inside a coal scuttle bucket until I came back! Fortunately nobody saw and it didn’t sell. I even haggled and got it for £11. My grandma sent us £10 instead of Easter eggs (because she is lovely lovely lovely and still thinks we should have eggs even though we are 24 years +!) so technically it only cost me £1.
It’s so happy with Daffodils in it! Can you just picture it brimming with Sweet Williams too? I can. I know I shouldn’t be buying fripperies really but sometimes it’s difficult to resist. Eh, as long as we don’t starve it’s all good.
