Candy Colours

Today was a ' I need to go food shopping day' I decided to only pick up a few things as it was so busy, but whilst looking for a boring spatula look what gorgeous goodies I found... I was amazed at the price and the quality!

Now if I told you they were from Asda would you be amazed? the most expensive items were the jug and blue bowl both at £6. I know, a fantastic price... and they are ceramic. I have come across items like this whilst shopping for my business at trade fairs, but they have always been plastic and as I have been after some ceramic ones like the original vintage ones my mum still has and uses, I had given up hope, so I just had to share this find:) In fact I love them so much that I will have to go back and pick up a few more bits from the range, even my partner Jeremy likes them, well they are practical and very pretty so he cant argue!

Look what else happened to jump out at me, Ella loves them and they are pink (her favourite colour) so we just had to get them also.. yum yum.

As you can see they were a perfect styling aid for the pictures I needed to take of the new tea cosy for my website. Business and pleasure at it's best!

I'm off now to eat one... bye x

The bowls are lovely, I must go to Asda, now! Isn't it fantastic when you find something gorgereous and cheap, when you weren't looking for it. I always pop into woolworths to see if they have got any new stuff for their 'vintage home' range, and I have recently discovered QS has a home section, and a I found some lovely blue floral vintage-style fabric covered storage boxes for £2 -£3 each, and a new blue cotton polka-dot apron and oven gloves for £3 each-
You just can't not buy them!
Thanks for leaving me a comment, I 'll have to add to my favourite blogs, and know I'm going to have a peek at your shop.
