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 –...
