The Real Reason

I put my Acapulco cups in the shop..



Yeeeees, well last week when we were confined to the house, I spent rather a lot of time over the course of a couple of evenings, bidding on things on ebay.



Having loved this design for rather a long time, or at least since earlier this year when my friend Katie came down to visit and scored the same tea-set (different colour & teapot) in a junk shop I introduced her too. I was so horribly jealous. And crestfallen. I know, how unpleasant of me.



Add to this, seeing this post over at Francesca's, well, you could say my interest was piqued or my dander was up or some such thing. I HAD to have it. I put a singe bid on and then told myself that was ALL I was going to do. And I won it! Obvs! It came this morning! LOOK at it! RAWR!



And weirdly last night I made these..





We are meant to be. And we're gonna live happily ever after.
