Glass puddings and My First Blog Award.

For the last few weeks I have been eyeing up these pretty patterned pudding glasses at my local charity shop. I decided to leave them last week, but when I popped in again this week they were still there.
I have always longed for individual pudding glasses, and whenever I watch dinner party shows (Come Dine with Me) I always think I must get some! There are 6 glasses altogether and they were £5.99. I normally spend less money than this, but felt over all they were of good value.

I washed them in hot soapy water, dried them and I made space for them in my display kitchen cupboard.  The glasses are quite chunky and solid, so they hopefully should last awhile?
 I am thinking summer fruit trifle, individual cheesecakes, ice cream sundaes, or chocolate mousse.

Joining in with Magpie Monday's theme of something funny, I also brought this very cute 1970's children's book for my children. 'Dizzy the Duckling' is a very sweet book about a duckling living near and farm, who has lost his Mother and 9 brothers! The story made me laugh, it was 20p.

I am linking in here at Sophie's Flea Market finds and here at Liz's Magpie Monday.

And finally on Saturday, Sarah from Home Made Gorgeous has awarded me my very first blog award,
 the Liebster Blog award. I am so thrilled and delighted to have received it!
Thank you very much Sarah!

As I understand it this award is for blogs with 300 followers or less, to showcase their blogs, and encourage some new readers. I have to choose some people to pass it on to, and frankly find
 this very difficult, as I love so many blogs, so I have decided to choose these people who have fantastic blogs and are all well worth a read!

                                              I am really looking forward to reading all your posts,
Have a lovely week,
