CRAFT FIND OF THE WEEK

our cup runneth over

There's something in the air at the moment, we ladies keep finding things in fives...
Thankfully we're cup half-full types, so we see this not as a set of six with one missing, but as a set of four with a spare in case of damage or loss. Not that there's much chance of damage with melamine, a very good thing considering the little interns have now decided to grab at every drinking vessel in sight (with dire consequences we might add as we sweep up the pieces of our favourite china). They've also filled what was a rather large black hole in our picnic hamper, which is great because it was getting rather embarrassing begging for disposables at the servo on the way to the picnic site.


We especially love the sharp geometric handles and weird 60's tan colour of the cups and as for the saucers, well... pine cones just make everyone happy don't they.

love the attitude of "4 + 1", not "6 - 1" - perfect!

and you're right, who doesn't love an acorn, with all their lovely interleaved spikes?

I LOVE vintage melamine.... I would like to have a huge collection all colours. The texture is so soft and the patterns and colours so retro. It is perfect for beginner feeders and it means you don't have to have ugly, too bright , branded ware all over the kitchen!

I know just what you mean Shannon, if I see another overbranded bloody baby product in exactly the same shade of dodgy lead laden super bright paint I might have a coniption!!

Don't quote me on this but I've been led to believe that in some Asian cultures sets are made up of odd numbers. So I guess - 5 or 6 - it's just a state of mind!
