They make me smile

I first saw these on the Big Brother House, actually first of all I saw the noodle bowls. My dear girlfriends informed me that there was actually a BB cool, I was stoked!! I couldn't order them at the time, because I didn't have the money, so I waited until I had some cash, and then ordered the bowls and decided on the lovely cups as well. Now, with a dishwasher, we use a lot more cups and apart from some nice coffee cups, I don't have a full set of any other cups. I was so disappointed though, because the noodle bowls were out of stock........... The cups arrived today and I have put them in the open shelf in my new kitchen and they look gorgeous, and yes, they make me smile every time I look at them, they are bright and happy...........just love them!

Now onto the noodle bowls, the story doesn't end. I tried several online kitchen stores, even spoke to a live customer service rep with an online store that I often use, and they weren't even prepared to source them for me. Then a good girlfriend stepped in, after I told her that I had no luck in finding any website with just S&P stuff........... Everytime I googled salt and pepper, bloom bowls, I got all kinds of stuff, nothing resembling what I was after. Al found the distributor in Melbourne. I was so excited, and I couldn't believe her finding them for me. The girl has more patience and persistence than anyone I know! Thanks Al!

I rang the distributor and they were lovely, and said I could ring my local HOUSE store and order them.......onto a lovely HOUSE sales person, and voila, I have six noodle bowls winging their way to my local HOUSE store very soon.

I am loving buying new things for my gorgeous new kitchen.........
