A thrifting find and pretty autumn weather

On Sunday we went for a doggie walk along the beach front. I tried to get them to turn around for the camera, but... they don't understand English. Oh well!

I hope last weekend was lovely for you too. Mine was nice and quiet, got things done at home, and some more work on my next book as well.

I have one chapter left to write and still hope to have the new book out this month. I can do it! Just a little pep talk there lol.

If you have something you're working on too, this pep talk is for you as well. You can do it! Yeah!

Lots of love from Chloe on the left and Daphne on the right.

The English Wedgwood coffee mug below is me, living my luxurious life on a budget :) I found it last week at a charity store for $2. It looked brand new and unused even though it is dated 1953.

I'm sure someone bought or was given it as a special piece to commemorate the Queen's coronation and it sat in a china cabinet somewhere for DECADES.

Well, I like to use my nice things, so a quick spin through the dishwasher (it sparkles now) and I am enjoying my morning cafe latte from it. It's such a beautiful mug, and quite unusual too, because in those days everything was a teacup and saucer. I like a cup and saucer for my coffee with cream, but when I'm having a milky coffee nothing beats a mug.

Yay for me! My $2 luxurious morning! This is why I love thrift stores. You never know what you'll find :)

Please tell me about something fun you've found thrifting!

And finally, this was the beautiful autumn view from the top of our road last week. How pretty are the colours?
I hope you are doing well where you are :)

  1. I am so happy that you are posting more often on your blog lately. It always makes my day when I see a new post by you, Fiona. :)

  2. I love, love, love coffee mugs and tea cups and saucers. I had so many at one time I could have opened a store. I finally got rid of the common ones and kept only the unusual and beautiful-to-me ones. I do love your $2 find. It’s gorgeous. My thrifty find was a piece of Carlton Walking Ware! It’s a special taste - cups (and other items) on walking legs or 2 legs. It’s either love or hate quirky!

  3. Best ever crockery finds were true antique plates which now mysteriously live at one of my daughter's........ plus very small 1970s pottery coffee mugs


Merci for your comment. Wishing you a chic day!
