Breakfast with Carlton Ware
Unwrapping and rediscovering each piece gave me the same joy as the day I bought it. What is it about "Yellow Buttercup" that has this effect on me? It can't be the buttercup pattern because the rarer Pink Buttercup leaves me "cold". My next favourite "Yellow Water Lily" makes me smile but Yellow Buttercup makes me grin - it's fun, it's warm, it's happy and sometimes I think that the people who designed and produced it at Carlton Ware must have felt the same because to borrow Mo's words "I'm feeling the love"!
Anyway enough of this self indulgence! I have decided to sell some of my collection so I have put a few pieces together to make a Breakfast for Two set - see the attached picture. I do have a teapot but I have not included it as it does not have a lid. It was lidless when I bought it and I always hoped to find one somewhere but of course I never did.
They will all be on the website very soon together with a couple of other pieces. I hope they make you grin and that you discover or re-discover the love for Yellow Buttercup.
