When I saw this sewing box in the window I just fell in love with it;
Isn't it cute? I'm lucky to have an indulgent husband who was happy for me to buy it, in the hope that all my sewing stuff might be kept a bit tidier. Here's hoping! I'm a real sucker for any piece of furniture with legs that also looks a bit 1950s/60s.
We also grabbed this gorgeous teapot;
I've seen these teapots in a few different places and they're pretty iconic. They're made by a firm called Masters and its called the 'Stay Hot Teapot' - you can see that it comes with its own chrome cover and inner felt lining. It's designed to be used with loose tea instead of teabags, as you can see from the perforated ceramic cylinder that fits inside the pot. I need to find a bottle brush before I use it, as the inside of the spout needs a good clean, as well as having to purchase some loose tea. I'm so looking forward to trying it out!
