A pink and white knitted tea cosy is one of the stars of the show today.
It is joined by two vintage cups and saucers, also pink and white.
I rediscovered this gorgeous vintage embroidered tray cloth in my fabric stash - how on earth could I have forgotten this beauty!
Aren't the colours wonderful. When I see pieces like this, I often wonder about the woman who made it. I'll never know, but I often think about how pieces came about. Were they made to give as gifts or to brighten the maker's own home?
Or, perhaps like my own stitching, they were just made purely for the love of creating - the love of doing something which gives pleasure. After all the years, these lovely hand crafted pieces still give some of us a lot of joy.
Do you ever wonder about your vintage finds?
