Magpie Monday – Midwinter plates and jug

November 14, 2011

This week I’m showing off some of my favourite ever second hand purchases. These are some plates from the Midwinter Stonehenge Flowersong range. My mum got a few in a charity shop and then I bought a few more on eBay.

We use these plates every day. The yellow and orange flower is so cheerful. I particularly like the tiny plate (which is about 10cm or 4″ across) – and so do small children!

I also found a jug from the Midwinter Stonehenge Sun range in a charity shop. This is similar colours to the Flowersong range, but with a more textured surface.

Do have a look at the other Magpie Monday finds this week at the Me & My Shadow blog.

      Yes they would be perfect for your kitchen renovation. There are usually some of these available on eBay if you want to get some.

    How lovely that you’re using the whole set.

    The Flowersong pattern has always reminded me of those woollen flowers I used to make as a kid on a little plastic pen ring thingie!

    Thanks for linking up, and again, your audio boo is brilliant! x

      Thanks for your comment on the post and glad you like the audioboo too.

      You’re right about the similarity to those loopy wool flowers. Perhaps you could do a blogpost about how to make them? I would definitely read it. x
