Next Christmas Collection

It’s been a while since I talked about cupcakes but then I saw the new Next Christmas gift collection and my love for all things cupcake came flooding back. Throw in pastel colours and Russian dolls and I’m totally on board.

An Apple a Day

Has anyone else spotted the apple motif that seems to be everywhere right now? I for one, love it.

Vintage Kitchen

I’m loving the idea of a vintage home right now, especially in the kitchen. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! This gallery image from Ideal Home spurs me on even more to go for this look for our next kitchen remodel.


Here are some wonderfully vintage items that would go great in that kitchen, yum!

Salt & Pepper

My sister went on a short break and brought me back this sweet little salt and pepper set. It’s perfect for my black and white living room and I’ve decided to put them on display more as a decoration piece as they seem too nice to use for the purpose for which they are intended.


Here are some other salt and pepper sets I found which are also almost too nice to use.

Salt and Pepper

  1. Sandbox Salt and Pepper set – $38 
  2. Rubiks Cube Salt and Pepper Mills – £11.99
  3. Devil and Angel – £15.50

Vintage Finds on Etsy

I’m going vintage crazy at the moment and it’s all Etsy’s fault. Not only are these olde worlde goods fab but you’re helping the environment too by recycling; bonus!

This pink and brown sugar and creamer set has made it onto my wishlist recently. I love this colour combination (it was the theme for my wedding!) and I think the set would look great coordinated with pink cups, a brown teapot and this Gingerbread Man bottle (filled with honey), all set up on your breakfast table.
