The Tea Cup Dance

I went on a mission yesterday around the charity shops and I have to say it was a bit of a success! I havn't been round Romford that much before but there are charity shops a-plenty round there and I found exactly what I was looking for.
This beautiful set was just £6.00. In the shop, the tag said there were six cups, five saucers and five plates, but when I got them home and unpacked them, there was actually six of everything! A full set - bargain!
This set of four cups and saucers was £2.50.
A set of four chinese tea cups for just £1.49!
This saucer was 50p and the cup was 50p, they don't match, but are cute all the same.
Six of these clover print sherry(?) glasses for £2.40.
Grand Total: £13.39!

Why all the tea cups, you ask? I have great crafty plans for them, which will be revealed in due course :o)

Last weekend we had the pleasure of welcoming a new Mrs D to the family. My brother-in-law, Andy, finally married his gorgeous fiance, Kayleigh. Here's a pic of the happy couple.

It was an absolutely beautiful day, filled with an overwhelming sense of happiness and family time. We made new friends, spent time with lovely relatives and danced the night away before collapsing into bed in our hotel at about 2am (we didn't strictly need to stay in a hotel as the wedding was in our home town, but it was a nice treat anyway!)

My gorgeous husband was a groomsman (he scrubbed up well!)

And here's a pic of us together (ahhhhh).
