Two friends of mine have a lovely shop in Dorchester called ‘On the Table‘ which sells the most gorgeous, contemporary kitchenware, tableware and furnishings and a range of yummy foods too. It is always my first port of call when I need to buy a gift. Today, I bought some beautiful glasses for a 30th wedding anniversary gift (I’m off to a party on the 8th) and as usual, I couldn’t resist buying myself a little something too and I also saw this wrapping paper. It’s by Emma Bridgewater who makes really funky, fun kitchen and tableware. It has the spots on one side and the stripes on the other. I couldn’t decide which pattern to use on the outside of the book and so I made two :-)
So if you were to buy these books, you could also have the matching mug, teapot, bowls, plates, cake tin, biscuit barrel, oven gloves etc etc…..
You could also buy this tea towel while you are at it…cue the gratuitous Daniel Craig photograph.
The other news of the day is that my ex has turned into a rock star! His album, called ‘Songs for Sale‘ by GTA, is now available for download on iTunes, which is very exciting!
My bit of glory came a couple of days ago when I was ‘Blog of the Day’ over at ‘Fuel my Blog’ You will have noticed that I now have a little widget-ty thing in my sidebar and every time someone clicks it, it is recorded as a vote over on the Fuel My Blog website. Well, I was for a day or so, top Art/Design blog and then I was ‘Blog of the Day’ and was sent this little badge to display…
Well, that’s my 15 minutes of fame :-)
