These were found yesterday - gorgeous bright red stripes. They nearly weren't mine as I had planned to go straight home after work, but decided on a whim to go slightly out of my way and stop in at a charity shop.
As I was deliberating whether to buy them (can you believe that?!) another customer came in and started picking them up for a look, that clinched it, soon after they were mine. It was meant to be!
More red lusciousness on these (in my opinion) stunning rose tablemats.
They could easily have been missed, lying in a box of junk under a table at the car boot, inside their own very plain box. Who would have guessed what was inside (I suspected cutlery and nearly didn't look), but on second thoughts decided to take a peek. They were meant to be too!
They are a bit too small for dinner tablemats and a bit too big for coasters but far too lovely to be kept inside the box. I'm thinking I might create a tile effect with them on the wall above my cooker (after protecting them with varnish), as the space is not tiled.
I'm also thinking it might be a bit OTT - we'll see (maybe it's not meant to be!)
