Woman on a mission

I got quite excited yesterday when I spotted the front cover of the latest edition of Country Living.

It just triggered something off in me and when I got home I scurried into the garage, I was a woman on a mission! I just had a feeling that a jug I had thought lost in a house move may be loitering with intent somewhere close and although I had previously hunted high and low I had been unable to find it. So I looked on shelves and under shelves and then I opened a cupboard ................. Yes!

I had obviously put it in too safe a place considering it's condition. It was in need of a little TLC.
So after a little cleaning and drying and gluing and setting I was really pleased to be able to welcome it back home.

If memory serves me right I think my mum gave it to me when she saw I'd taken a shine to it, which makes it even more special.

Hope your day is working out as well as mine.

  2. I love it when a plan comes together. Is it a Carlton Ware jug? Lesley x

  3. OOOh it's lovely, well remembered and very well mended, if I may say so! xx

  4. Such a pretty jug and it looks perfect filled with these flowers.

  5. Thanks so much for all of your comments ladies, you can tell I enjoyed this can't you? Lesley unfortunately there's no badge on the bottom but I am a 'potter' so it could very well be a piece of Carlton. x
