fruit, finds and idioms ...
Life is just like a bowl of cherries - that life is simple and pleasant. I treated myself to these mouthwatering cherries from our local greengrocers. I thought they looked nice in one of six dessert bowls I found in a charity shop about a month ago, £2 the set. They are made by Midwinter, designed by the Marquis of Queensberry, with no scratches, so I guess in their time rarely brought out of the cupboard.
I was more than happy to accept this 20p Cornishware dinnerplate my stepdad stumbled across in one of his local charity shops, amongst a pile of other plates, shoved in a cardboard box. How it didn't end up chipped I don't know? I was also pretty chuffed to find this lovely summer fruits tablecloth a couple of weeks ago at a carboot for £1, folded and unused still in its wrapper.
Charity begins at home - that family members are more important than anyone else, and should be the focus of a person's efforts. This morning I found this small Mason Cash bowl in one of my local charity shops for 29p, which I thought was an odd price to charge? Perfect for beating up a couple of eggs in.
Have you had any good charity finds lately?
