As I cant bear to see anything thrown away and with my inability to say 'No' Ive ended up with 3 bits of pure retro pottery, these bad boys are huge and my hubby hates them lol. So let me introduce you to the West German pottery house guests:
This is a Scheurich pottery floor vase and its huge! I've been using it as an umbrella stand for the last week. It still has it's original label which is sweet:
This vase is either 1960's or 1970's as the Internet search on the base number was a bit inconclusive.
Along with this big boy came its brothers:
These are massive as well - lol. They have been living in the down stairs loo until I can find what I'm going to do with them. Where did they come from? Well a family member was going to throw them away from my nans house so being the hoarder in training I said I'd give them a home :o)
Along with these I found this retro Aladdin pump flask in the charity shop:
It was £2.80 so I couldn't leave it there, may be one for ebay in the future if I don't get round to using it. I also picked up this vintage piece of Denby:
This was £2.30 - not bad for a piece of Denby but it doesn't really fit with my kitchen so this may be going to a friend.
And of course not to be left out with you all, I finally found a granny blanket - hoorah!
I paid £1 - am I now allowed in the Granny Blanket club? *wink*
And because I cant leave this post without at least one flower:
So I did manage to squeeze some floral and a bit of CK in - Mwahahaha!
Happy Friday all!
