Made in the 1960s by Arcoroc of France, a firm which produces glassware for restaurants.
Luckily, we had friends over for the weekend where they could be shown off at every opportunity. The problem is that we are awash with plates and there is no room for our little fishy dishies in the plate cupboard. So they are cluttering up our work top at the moment together with our jars and trays as well as the regular sort of kitchen paraphernelia. What is a body to do?
I, too, am feeling v pleased with myself. I've finally made something from the 1950s piece of material that I blogged about here, Not one but two cushion covers. I even added some pompom trimming which has been festering (not literally, I hasten to add) in my sewing stool for over 10 years!
Here they are nestling together on the armchair.
Here's a close-up of one:
And a close-up of the other. They're subtley different, I'll have you know!
Now folks, there's still time to enter the JUMBLES AND POMPOMS VINTAGE
Finally, inspired by my reasonably successful attempt at cushion cover making with pompoms, I've joined the fabulous Felt Fairy's monthly make pledge. Yes, little old me, making things once a month (we'll see how long that will last shall we?). I'm off now to look at some of the wonderful makes on show. Byeeeeeee.
