Spotted – Flamingo Tumblers! *want*

Oh how I love these tumblers! When I was younger and greener I believed a flamingo on an item immediately made it a no-go kitsch area. But as i’ve got older, and my taste has refined, I’ve rather had a re-think and now I’ve a serious soft spot for a flamingo (personally I blame Gnomeo & Juliet). And these tumblers I spotted on the John Lewis site are just perfect, aren’t they? Imagine a long summer’s...

Spotted! Oh, How I Want This Brambly Hedge Armchair

When I was growing up, Brambly Hedge was a cherished source of joy and comfort. I have loved the stories ever since (and am only sorry I utterly failed to persuade my boys of their special charm), and will occasionally on a wet afternoon pull a copy off the shelf to flick through and reacquaint myself with the perfect illustrations, the mice and their Summer adventures or Poppy’s babies. Such perfect cosy domesticity –...

Spotted! Lakeland Heavy Duty Oven Glove under £5!

Come on – we’ve all done it. Kept the oven gloves a bit too long, or ignored the Heavy Duty Oven Glove to buy the cheaper ones because they were pretty.

Ow owowOW OW OW!” yelping dance as I flung the roasting tin at the top of the cooker,...

Spotted – Don’t Touch Me Peasant!

I know, we all love a good mug. I know I’m not alone in having a collection, because certain mugs are needed for certain drinks on certain days. And today is definitely the day for THIS little beauty.   Perfect, no? I found it in Frankly Noted’s rather perfect Etsy shop, and I neeeed it. Sadly they don’t ship the UK currently – but let’s start petitioning them to, yes? We need more of their mugs in...

Spotted – Gorgeous Girl’s Horse T-Shirt Under £4 from M&S!

If you’ve got a pony-mad girl, this find I just spotted over in the M&S sale just might make her smile a bit… I just love it! I’m not a huge fan of animals on my clothes, but with a subtle and beautiful print like this you really can’t go wrong. And there’s not many girls I know who wouldn’t love a herd of white horses galloping through the spray. It’s a polyester tee so it’ll feel...
