Breakfast à la 70s.
Arcopal teacup, saucer and plate - remnants of a wedding gift (of course, I was a child bride, ahem!).
Reading my fav 70s mag - 19 Magazine - I remember using the stuff (correction fluid) in this ad - always ran out just when it was needed most. Then I moved to an office which used blue paper for correspondence - argh!!!!! In the days of electric (or even worse, manual) typewriters, you really had to be accurate! I never did
tape type my way to fame and fortune!
But, I digress ... so unlike me!
The reason for this post - these
Three Original Cornish Kitchenware egg cups found in the charity shop yesterday. Didn't know what make they were till I got them home because they were in the window of the shop and I had to ask the wee old lady how much they were. She rummaged in the window, told me the price, tutted and then said, "They're naw worth that, gie's wan fifty." I hastily agreed because she had been so nice and I was actually looking for some egg cups for Easter bits and pieces.
Anyway, to continue - discovered that the mark stating that they were restyled by Judith Onions (what a great name) dates from1968 - 1975 so decided to treat myself to a 70s breakfast today! Phew, got there in the end. Is anyone still with me?
Very enjoyable breakfast!
The wee lady in the charity shop was not just nice to me. There had been an old lady in front of me who bought a purse. The charity shop lady put a 20p inside it for her because we have a tradition here that if you give anyone a new purse, you have to put a coin in it - I think it is a good luck charm - so that their purse will never be empty. Is that a west of Scotland tradition or do you do this too?
Anyway, that restored my faith in the human side (as opposed to the business side) of charity shops. I feel a bit guilty about all my recent moans!
Have a great day!
