I love this little saucer. I found a pair of them at the bottom of a box of china at my fabulous local charity shop, for 10p! 10p!
They make me think of golden era films, of white christmas, of rosy cheeks and hot chocolate!
In short I cried when on Sunday, it slipped off my knee, while I was drinking my morning coffee (and talking....hence accident!). I actually couldn't bear to look and made Mr B do it instead. But of course he had to report that my beloved saucer was D.O.A.
Sob!So I am going to super glue it! Mend it! What a revelation! It doesn't have to go in the bin, leaving me behind. It can be glued, be a bit wobbly, not perfect. Isn't it strange and saddening that at some point people stopped doing this, they simply threw out and replaced? How many much loved things were resigned to room B.1.N?Do you have a beloved object that has been mended and lived to a grand old age?
