I think people think that I am a Cath Kidston type of person, whereas it’s all a bit too twee for me. I live the country life, I don’t need to produce a pastiche of rural living. But that said I have often bought gifts for others, as lots of friends love it, so I think that’s why I’m on their mailing list.
And the Christmas catalogue has some things that I think would be tempted to find homes for. Possibly even my own! These are what I’m loving:
Ok, I don’t have ground black pepper around the house, but if I was going to have a traditional style salt and pepper set, then I’d choose Stanley. Just too cute for words.
There are a couple of things I like whilst being in the kitchen: Radio 4 and a cup of tea. I think therefore that this is the perfect tea cosy for me to have around.
I’m quite partial to a bit of kitsch (you have only to observe my hankering after the Merry Kitschmas book, which is now mine). So these champagne glasses are probably right up my street! I like to think I have a lifestyle modelled on The White Company, but I have to be honest, kitsch deer are going to do it every time for me!
Christmas needs a Chirstmas tea towel, and so Iwould probably continue the kitsch deer theme. If you wanted something a little less kitsch, then there are some with a deer print that’s slightly more subtle!
As good things come in threes, and everybody should have a Christmas apron, so bring on the deer once last time!
Definitely worth a look this year, and even finding some space for in your own home.
