Bake it better

Baking is so much more fun when you have something brilliant to beat it all together in and this fantastic vintage French mixing bowl makes us smile and reach for a rolling pin every time we see it. Nigella, Delia... you'd better watch out because we're putting our pinnies on.

We've featured in 'insight'magazine...

We were pleased to see a fab piece about our website in this week's 'insight' magazine. Featuring shots of our vintage teapot, revamped bushel box, painted chairs, rabbit cushions, magnetic frames and mini blackboards we hope it gave a good introduction as to what we're all about (though Andrew was just excited to see he had been quoted in print :)

Make a note...

If you're after a handy solution for directing guests to your garden party, or if you always need a nudge to remember to put the bins out or feed the guinea pigs, these cute mini blackboards may well be the answer. Scribble down your message and dangle from a doorknob for a snazzy alternative to a scrap of paper.

Also available in gorgeous green...

We've got our hands on a gorgeous green Farrow & Ball and added it to our range of painted chairs. The Lovebirds chair is particularly perfect in this summery shade.

P.S. Our chairs make an ideal wedding gift because we can hand paint a personalised message on the rear of the back panel to make them that extra bit special. Makes a nice change from a toaster too.

Summer evenings deserve candlelight...

We've heard a rumour that the sunshine will be back a bit later in the week so we'll be enjoying eating supper outside in the garden once again. We've been after some pretty, windproof candles for the table for a while now and these lace printed candles seem perfect. In three summery colours, they're big enough to shed a gorgeous glow and they'd make a lovely present too.
