A Fishy Tail :)

I found this pretty 50's jug last week, I remember my Grandma having one with matching glasses, I always loved that set and I am hoping to find the frosted  glasses to match or at least something near, can't wait for the carboots to get going again.

I have always liked old cutlery and have collected a few bits here and there but no fish eaters as they are called. I found a nice set on E Bay recently and so I gave he who does the bidding a small hint, low and behold a parcel arrived 

 even the box is lovely it's lined in satin this isn't a very good picture

I was really pleased to get an almost matching set of servers as well which I didn't know about

Valentine who needs a chocolate heart I would rather have a fish fork and you  :)

  I think I will do some baking tomorrow I have beeen looking through cookery books again, I hope I'm not the only one to take them to bed to read, I have a couple or 20 to share with you one day most are old and sometimes funny.
Enjoy whats left of the Weekend

Love the jug. I do like your cutlery. My friend has a collection. The only drawback is that you can't bung 'em in the dishwasher!
