Green is the new Purple

chinoiserie BISTO ENGLAND coffee can
Today seems to be a day for revisiting posts and adding to them. This art deco chamber pot was a fairly recent aquisition and came as part of a set. I have to admit to really not liking the colour combination and therefore going against my collecting rule of "only buy stuff you like" - i seem to now be verging on the "buy anything and everything i see, as long as it's Bisto." Well, i came across the teaset below, on ebay, with the same pattern but in a much more appealing colourway. It was a shame that the set was incomplete, or I may have bought them. A more canny seller might have ditched one of the cups and saucers and tried to sell it as a set of four. Foxy.

About Me

Sometimes, life doesn't turn out the way you expected. And sometimes, it is exactly as it was 'meant' to be. But whilst i'm not a believer in fate or fatalism, I do believe that life is a both a learning experience and an obstacle course to be climbed and clambered over in the most creative way possible! In doing so, you'll get to where you should be even if it's not where you'd imagined.
