At my house...

Nope, its not fabric. (for a change)

Its not Scandinavian either. (which i thought it looked like)

Its made by James Kents English pottery company Old Foley. The design is 'Melody'.

Dinner, lunch and side plates (a couple of plain blue bowls too). Not a complete set, but enough for us - at only $20!!!

Apparently they had just been put out, when I spotted them at our local oppy, which is why they hadn't been snapped up yet - YAY! I really love blue and white so these are just perfect. But we needed something to put on them, so I called the staff and cracked the whip...

Yet more concentration in our kitchen, whilst cutting up some puff pastry to decorate their chilli pies!

From this...

...to this!

(and a few pinwheels too)
So now you know what we are having  for tea tonight - and looking especially good on the new (old) dinner service!
