Frifty Friday finds on Thrifting Tuesday

lobster tcloth, originally uploaded by drewzel.

Friday’s visit to the oppy yielded a rather special vintage lobster tablecloth, which made me go squee! And the teapot with a chrome cosy was thrifted the Friday before that. [You may recall I was coveting one a while ago]. Everything all set for a tea party at the Portionvilla.

    That tablecloth is perfect for a happy table setting (especially when it involves cake and tea)

    Yes to all! HP smokes outside, I’m always up for fish’n’chips, and roibos is one of my favourites too. I’ve also got a French Earl Grey that’s rather lovely.

    I love both the tablecloth and the tea cozy! Great retro finds!
