Vintage coffee set

I picked this up yesterday from my local cancer research charity shop for £9.95. Isn't it gorgeous? With 6 cups and saucers and only one very small clean chip on 1 cup. I am thrilled with it. The colours remind me of spring which seems oh so far away at the moment.

I was lucky enough to get this book for Christmas and I've just started a sourdough starter for baking bread. I've never baked sourdough before so am looking forward to it.

I am a bit of a technophobe and this is a whole new experience for me, so please bear with my terrible photo taking and I haven't a clue how to do links yet but am hoping to learn soon.
