    Pretty as a… dinner plate?

    There are often delays on my train line at the end my working day and with nothing to do but loiter until it finally arrives, I’m something of a regular at that particular branch of Accessorize. I often come home with the odd pair of earrings or bracelet and the beauty of it is that my ‘finds’ are small enough to hide in my  handbag, so that nobody (namely the boyfriend), need know.

    My little secret, however, is soon to be foiled, as Accessorize has launched its first tableware collection, which is sure to be too large for me to disguise. ‘With Love’ by Dinnerware & Co is inspired by the brand’s signature pretty and feminine style, with vintage floral prints and a palette of soft pastels combined with vivid brights. There are 35 pieces in all, with everything from dinner plates to cakestands, and would make an excellent addition to a traditional English tea party.

    Three of the best: quirky mugs

    by  • November 18, 2011 • home accessories, • Kitchen Accessories • 0 Comments

    A little bit of Friday frippery for you – the latest mugs to pop into my inbox that will brighten up your kitchen. Fortunately, each of them has something special about them…

    I wanted to start with these personalised Cornishware mugs. I was thrilled when TG Green started making Cornishware again a few years ago and these mugs will make you just as cheerful I’m sure.

    A Couple of Mugs is a pair of red mugs that can be personalised with up to 12 letters each for £25 and are perfect for a Christmas present.

    Next, a charity number from Villeroy & Boch with its limited edition mugs that support the British Heart Foundation‘s Mending Broken Hearts appeal. Featuring artwork from a host of contemporary British artists, they cost £24.95 each with £5 going to the BHF.

    Finally, this Ladybird colours-inspired Fabulous mug from Emma Bridgewater instantly caught my eye – bright, retro and of course, it tells you where to have it on display – in your fabulous, modern kitchen!

    All I want for Christmas is…

    Earlier this week I was able to make time to visit the BHS Spring/Summer 2010 Press Show where I was very taken with this stylish 16-piece Demure dinner set. Luckily this range is already in store, so I’m adding it to my already very long Christmas shopping list. I think teamed up with these lovely black and gold crackers from John Lewis it’s sure to impress the parents, in-laws or friends.
