I only managed to peel myself away from this gorgeous tea set in the YMCA shop by taking photos of it as a kind of visual methadone. It was so beautiful, but I won't use it, I don't have room to display it and it was £17 I can't afford to spend on fripperies... I just couldn't find a decent justification, darn it!
I even managed to resist these lovely shot glasses...
..and these sturdy graphic-patterned cups.
Which at least left me with the £3.50 I needed to buy this pretty embroidered tunic in Scope - just what I needed discovering that all my summer tops are either too small or completely knackered. Phew!
