When Mr Postman walked in to my work this morning, I was delighted to receive a large box. Inside was this glorious dessert service that I have purchased from Vintage Kitsch. The owners of this fantastic online shop contacted me after finding my blog and asked if I would be interested in buying. "Yes!" I said - this pattern was known to me as i have a part coffee set, but that version is not coloured, but is a kind of goldish transfer on ivory body. This service has black and iron red transfer, with gild edges. Curiously, they look very aesthetic movement in style with oriental scenes, but the impressed numbers (which are usually found as date markers) suggest a date of 1905-1912.

- 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.
