Pastel Spice Jars

To be honest, even though it is winter and I should be loving darker, warmer tones I am still very much in love with pastel. And I mean everything pastel. I still love purple hair (on others – I’m not quite brave enough), pastel blue nails, that light daisy yellow, and pink – all pink, but especially light and baby pink. I LOVE PASTELS!

Ok sorry.

My obsession may have been reignited by one of my favourite inspiration posts, which is of course my pastel inspiration blog. You can have a gander at that here, if you would so wish… (love a cheeky plug me)

Anyway, back to ย the point of this blog.

I visited Henry Watson Potteries the other day – I know, “shut up about Henry Watson already”, but I do love his pottery and hear me out. I was in his shop, looking around, trying to grab a bit of inspiration when there it was. Pastel. Now in amongst cream and terracotta a glimpse of pink was very much appreciated. Look what I saw…

Now, if you do not like these (or Henry Watson Pottery for that matter) thanks for reading this far, but I’m sorry, we can’t be friends ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s just perfection. A really cute little spice jar with that bobble hat lid, they’re made out of terracotta and the seal is really good so everything will stay fresh, the glaze is pastel and shiny… I could go on.

I have never seen these online so when I saw them I was immediately in love – I hope you like them as much as I do (not really possible :)) and if you do have the chance, go and check out the Henry Watson shop. It’s a little barn like shop, with more than just pottery, the staff are really helpful and it’s great to have a look round.

Anyway, I shall not mention Henry Watson’s again… (disclaimer: this is probably a lie), but I hope you don’t mind ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for reading!

Country Creams

Country Creams Long

I love cream kitchenware.It reminds me of those bright kitchens you see in magazines with the sun shining through the window.

Does anybody else wish that they had a perfect home like that?

I do, but I know for certain that I couldn’t be bothered with all the tidying – Imagine if someone came round, they’d probably be too scared to touch anything. I certainly don’t want my house to have that atmosphere, but a lovely show home for a day would be grand. I’d probably have a photo shoot and pretend I had a perfect life… Ok, we went off on a tangent.

Back to cream kitchenware!

It is lovely isn’t it. And it adds a vintage vibe, perfect for adding a touch here and there in your home, even if it’s modern. I love the mix of old and new. Right let’s get to it – Here are five of my favourite pieces available right now ๐Ÿ™‚

Christmas Gift Ideas Blog Post

It’s probably too early to talk about this, but I am going to anyway. It seems that overnight it has turned into winter and what does that mean? CHRISTMAS OF COURSE!

***ย Cue many people leaving my blog ***

I’m sorry. I know it’s not even November yet, but I’m planning on being really organised this year and I’ve already bought a present for my Dad. He’s impossible to buy for so when I saw it (obviously can’t say what it is just in case he stumbles across this), but I snapped it up straight away.

Why I Love Henry Watson’s Potteries

Henry Watson Kitchenware

If you have read all of my blog posts, you will see that I have a very soft spot for Henry Watson’s Potteries. It really is a very lovely brand that is still family run after so many years and as I have said in precious post we own some of their products and always get compliments on them. They have lasted so many years, but don’t look outdated so I thought I would give you a few reasons as to why I love Henry Watson’s Potteries!
