Making me smile this week - part 2!

Wedding China...
I didn't have a wedding list but I did send a link to a relative and a friend watched me drooling over the CK catalogue...and I ,oops I mean we!!!, were very lucky to receive 6 place settings of the lovliness, aswell as a teapot, milk jug and my much coveted butter dish.
I am going to add to it, some bowls I think. And we are going to use it. I have decided it is too nice to just look at, once a week we shall use it for a special weekend meal...
The saucers are so sweet...look at the spray flowers hiding under the cup!!
I've had a shifty about on my dining room shelves, .....but now my kitchen shelves look a mess!!!
I have a freecycled dresser waiting to be painted so I think I'll hurry up and do that so I can find everything a home!!
atrocious photos.....I am going new camera shopping this week...not helped by my waiting til dusk before taking them though!!!
I'm almost back in the real world, we are decorating our bedroom so we are a bit topsy turvy with that...I have some crafty ideas for the swaps I've signed up for...now who has hidden all the hours in the day lol!!!
edited to say...thank you for all your comments...I'm not making it round everyone at the minute but I'm lurking a bit!!! Also I should add that the bestest husband is not always so thoughtful with the gifts - this was a HUGE shocker!! I think I've used up a few years worth here!!!
