A note from Geoff on Saturday 2nd September 2006

Our cutlery drawer is a bit of a mess!!!
Here it is!!!

It includes the remnants of a set we have had for some time plus six steak knives
......but also lots of other bits-n-pieces!!!
We have two 'new' sets that are not used
and click on the thumbnails to have a look at each one

This one was a gift way back in 1976,
and it is unopened

This was a recent purchase
which we really don't want to use

We needed something for everyday use
Sharon likes "flowers-and-pretty-things" and this set is perfect!!!

Now a note to my Wife

Hope you like this set!!!
Your job is to clean out the drawer
Pack up all the junk - and throw it in the bin!!!
Or give it to a Charity Shop
Might be a good idea to keep a couple of the steak knives
I am not sure how sharp these new ones are
And you know, your cooking of steak......well,......!!!
We also have to get rid of the horrible yellow thing
You might find a timber one somewhere!!!



- The Ebay Auction

Cutlery Set - Sixteen Piece
White with pink roses
The wonderful ceramic handles have a single Redoute rose on each
and a smaller bud at the top
They are quite heavy to hold which makes them feel, oh, so much more than average!!
Set consists of four knives, four forks, four desert spoons, and four larger teaspoons
Listed at $39.99 makes each piece just $2.50!!!

A question I sent to the seller during the auction
Hi, and what are the marks in the dish-part of each of the spoons?
Or is it a camera/flash reflection, etc?
Thanks, Geoff
......and the reply
Hi Geoff, and yes, they are a reflection of my chandelier
I noticed them and wondered whether to mention it or not
They are brand new and never used
I hope this answers your question
Happy bidding, Robyn

Pretty Shabby Roses Eight Piece Dessert Set
I have listed for you today this gorgeous eight piece dessert set
It is made from 18/10 stainless steel
It is comprised of four cake forks and four teaspoons
I have also listed a matching sixteen piece cutlery set ($69.95)

A note I send to the seller during the auction
I am interested in this set, but would like to check on one thing
Are these spoons and forks the same size as the ones in the sixteen piece set?
Looking at the photos, it appears the forks might be smaller but the spoons look the same length
Thanks, Geoff
......and the reply
Hi Geoff, and these sets are just gorgeous!
The spoons in the dessert set are slightly larger than the teaspoons in the sixteen piece set
and measure 17.5cm long
The forks are smaller than the ones in the sixteen piece set and also measure 17.5cm
The patterns on both sets are identical
Hope this helps
Kind regards, Carol

I can 'special order' you a set if you want -
