A present from Millport

Look at this fabulous charity shop find!  Two gorgeous cups and saucers in perfect condition and with the most marvellous thistles and tartan design.  They are obviously souvenir items and are marked - A Present from Millport.



Millport is a small Scottish town on the island of Cumbrae a short ferry ride from Largs, not far from Greenock.  When I was a wee girl it was a very popular place in the summer for day trips and holidays.  Still is, to a certain extent.  A popular thing to do there is to hire a bicycle and cycle round the island.


I was delighted with my find - these lovely bits and pieces are becoming rarer at affordable prices.  They are bone china and marked Thistle.


Just love the decoration - so pretty.  I love finding Scottish items!


Joining this week's Monday Social at Let's Add Sprinkles - come and have a look at some of the marvellous things there.

Love, Liz

Oh Liz, how lucky to have found those beautiful cups and saucers. The thistles and ribbon and gilded messages are charming. Will you be serving shortbread along with tea? xo
