Meadowland - in a Charity Shop


This weekend's charity shop find is just gorgeous!  Its a Royal Standard Meadowland cake plate.

 
I've bumped up the colour a wee bit because my original photograph didn't do it justice.

 
The pattern is lovely.
 


I also got this rather twee lampshade - I've got plans for it!

 
Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Linking up for Nifty Thrifty over at the Living Space.

Love, Liz

What a fun new header! Oh that plate is exactly the kind of thing I'd dig to the bottom of my purse to find enough money to buy. So pretty.

What a pretty plate! I love that style, and won't it look great with a nice Victoria Sponge or a Dundee Cake on top?

This is a Twilight Zone moment! I found two gorgeous Paragon plates yesterday in my favourite local charity shop in a bit similar shape! I will blog them tomorrow! Nice new banner too, nice to share your kitchen dresser each post!

I love that plate, I'd love to blithely skip off into the landscape. Looking forward to the lampshade make over
