I nipped to Dunhelm earlier on this afternoon and ended up bringing a couple of bits and bobs back including a freestanding caddy for the bathroom revamp, some shells, (for decorating a large mirror for the bathroom - yet to be found) a stone heart decoration and a couple of more throws (for the dining room). I have seen some fabric in Dunhelm which I quite have my eye on for the kitchen or the dining room - most of the kitchen stuff has been sourced in green and white, and so I think it could end up in the dining room I am sort of musing yellows, greens in there. The jury is still out though.
Three tier bathroom caddy floor standing
A variety of mixed shells for using to decorate a large mirror and then varnishing.
The stone pebble heart.
The shells again
A couple of more throws this time in a lovely Gold yellow official colour is Ochre.
A couple of faux electric lanterns
It would seem that Ercol furniture is very much back in fashion again. I went into town this afternoon actually heading for Wilco but I did not get there before they closed but ended up in John Lewis and espied this furniture which closely resembled Ercol, and on closer investigation is a new twist on the Ercol furniture of the sixties.
Here is the new Ercol dining table current price for new piece £719.20
Ercol Shalstone Dining Bench £499.00
Whilst in John Lewis I decided to treat myself to a pot of tea and a piece of cake. When I went in there the other day I had a piece of cake and pot of tea and the cake was lovely. A sponge cake filled with jam and cream and covered in icing and dried strawberry pieces it was lush. Today I remembered to take a photograph. The dried strawberries had an awful lot of flavour, gave a different texture and was totally delightful served like this.
There were a couple of bits and bobs as well from Dunhelm, including a whole raft of wooden coat hangers as I seem to have run out of them again.
I have also bought some strips for putting on the edge of the oven shelves which are supposed to stop people burning themselves - something which I am frequently doing so I hope that they work as I am getting a tad fed up with burning myself.
Right upwards and onwards.
Catch up with you all soon.
