My bosses Granny recently went into assisted care and was having a clean out of her house. I know….drooling at the thought of her Granny’s treasures. That just sounds wrong! LOL. Anyhow. I was offered this tea set! How cool is it. Love the pattern and colours and the shapes! Excellent. It’s in excellent condition. "Midwinter Modern, Fashion Shape" is printed on the base of the pieces. Apparently these were manufactured in the 50’s and 60’s and are now becoming hot on the collector’s scene.
I feel a little guilty benefiting from Juliet’s Granny and have decided that she needs a lap quilt for herself. She’s now living in one room, which is a huge change, but she’s amazing. Apparently she’s doing well in spirit and is accepting this new phase in her life. Her favourite colours are pink and greens, so I’ll raid the stash and see what I can come up with.
You might wonder why I’m so excited about this? Well thrifting in Australia is not as bountiful as other countries. So whenever a find is stumbled upon or given to me I leap on it 🙂 We just don’t have the population or the history for old stuff!
