I managed to buy this beautiful Gibson's teapot for £5 on eBay this week. I love all things Crinoline Ladies as it reminds me of my Nana B's embroidery projects and looking at things through my childhood eyes...
This vintage embroidered cloth was a car boot sale find last year at Strawberry Fields near Bridlington. The amount of work in it is colossal, this is just one corner. It's a lovely heavy natural linen square tablecloth - I absolutely treasure it and need to think about how I could use it - maybe one of my afternoon teas could have a Crinoline theme?
