Laduree

Next time I'm in Paris this is where you'll find me
Laduree St Germain





















Although I have to say, I would be very happy in the Tokyo store too!

A growing obsession


My love of china and glassware has just exploded in the last year - my poor little flat is nearly splitting at the seams


last count I had 14 jugs, who needs 14 jugs I hear you ask, but its not really about need.....


Poolware


I'm so in love with my Pooleware Coffee pot, I don't even drink coffee - but it looks so pretty I couldn't resist!


I have a whole Pooleware tea set now and a dinner set, which I have decided to use everyday, as the colour is so beautiful


I'd love to have more of these Jelly moulds, they are so sculptural and beautiful


colourful bulb vases


love this little plate


Crown Ducal


this my fav bulb vase, love the fluting and the colour


the simplicity of Wedgewood - perfect


Head over heals for this colour - Dee Cee Stoneware vase


I bought this pottery jug on holiday in Aegina, Greece at a little pottery stall at the side of the road in the middle of nowhere, I was so worried I was going to break it bringing it home, but its pretty robust. I love the colour


this jug and the tea cup, saucer and plate below, are my latest finds and favourites. I swoon everytime I look at this jug, the colour is heavenly


so so so in love with this, just perfection
