Vintage kitchen

After months of trawling through flea markets in France, I come back to Blighty and what do I find, but five beautiful 1940's ceramic storage jars.

A stripy pea green and cracked cream glaze, so pretty, and so delicate, hand-painted and they have lasted all this time.

A tiny, floral sugar bowl with its lid was also intact and quietly sitting on an ambiguous shelf in the second-hand shop. Its gentle old-fashioned colour and flowers sang out to my heart and I bought the whole pretty lot for a tenner.
