500 posts! WOYWW

This is my 500th post here on Kiln Fired Art blog, I can’t believe I’ve kept going so long, so thank you to my followers as you have kept me going all this time, it’s great to get feedback.
I’ve been away with friends over the weekend so not much going on on my worktable for today’s WOYWW, but I hope to glaze the leaf buttons later today.

We had a great time over the weekend including a trip Stratford upon Avon, and a visit to the FourTeas tearoom.









The decor is 1940’s, and the waitresses are dressed in period clothes. The crockery is green utility ware, and the menu was a ration book.

Afternoon tea was a real treat, and not ration size portions, the whole experience was very enjoyable,  I was really taken the ‘Make do and Mend’ posters.



And as children are returning to school can you imagine  if they had reinforced clothes, although my lad would put the knees out of his trousers within the first week of school and always ended up with patched knees.


I better head off down the garden path to get some work done but first I’m going to have a quick look at Stamping Ground to see what everyone has on their worktables today.

    Congrats on your 500th post Jill – blogging is a bit addictive, but I think we get a lot out of it too. Love those buttons and the 1940s hints – pity more today did a bit of repair instead of tossing things out so quickly. Enjoy your week and thanks for visiting Cheers RobynO#22

    The tea room looks a fascinating place to visit – and such a good job to know the portions weren’t ration sized! I love the posters and it does make you realise what a throw away society we live in.
    Thank you so much for stopping by my desk, I hope you have a great week

  6. Congratulations on your 500th post! Loving all those buttons. The ‘Make do and Mend’ posters are a hoot. Laughed when reading “and ironing wisdom”. The boys poster is still prevalent today, few know how to do much of those.
