This week I found a beautiful bone china mug from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. I chanced upon it in a local antique mall, which is housed in an old textile mill. There are several in this area of NC and it's great to stroll through them finding treasures !
They still have all the old floors and have a wonderful atmosphere. Of course it's hard to leave without buying anything ! Anyway I was thrilled with my purchase, only $4 and it was still in it's presentation box. I don't know why I still find it amazing to find treasures here from my home country, but I do !
I also had a baking session yesterday and made a sponge cake ( I forgot to take photos and hubby took it to work ! ) and some caramel brownies. It was hard not to succumb, but as I'm still trying to lose weight I was very good and didn't nibble on one of them !
I found the gorgeous plate in an old antique barn up in Vermont, LOVE !
Have a wonderful weekend
