This summer I am expecting a flying visit from relatives that live on the continent (as well as ones that live in the USA). Now my uncle (yes, you know who you are) always makes a big fuss about the coffee cups. Apparantly mine are too big (but the coffee is so good, you need more than an eyeful!). I don't like espresso cups, so I have been on the look out for the perfect coffee cup - and I found a set of them in my local charity shop. They are "Midwinter, Sienna" I think from 1962. 4 coffee cups and saucers and 4 side plates - all for £2.20 I'm keeping my eye open for a matching coffee pot.
