New (to me) vintage jug

Of course I said I’d love to make them cakes, so I suggested that instead of paying me, we’d sort out a trade.

In return for my baking I received several boxes of cardamom tea (yum!) and these beautiful fragrant sweet peas, which gives me a good opportunity to showcase this vintage autumnal pattern milk jug that I got last year at a flea market.

Overall it got me thinking about swapping more, and how bartering is a really positive thing.
