Make it patterned and colourful. And please, don't cry if it breaks!

I decided a long time ago that there were far too many pretty kitchenware patterns for me to devote myself to just one. And with some beautiful new bowls as birthday presents,
I thought I'd take out some of my favourites to show you.

Some are vintage. Some are from Avoca, Anthropologie, Fishs Eddy,
Some are from travels abroad, but most of them given to me as gifts.
And I love them!

And I use them. Which sometimes is stressful because they get broken.
The cherry glass in this image is the last remaining glass
from a set belonging to my lovely grandparents.
(ok, so I don't let ANYBODY use that one!)

And in a dramatic Everyone-help-clearing-the-table accident,
I now only have 10 days of Christmas. oh well.

The bottom bowl here was one of the 4 bowls I got for my birthday.
It came with a note attached:

'From us 3, because we love you, and because sometimes we break things.'



  1. How adorable!

    I love your selection of bowls and dishes, the colourfulness is so uplifting. Hmm well you could have them on a shelf and look at them but it's not the same!

  2. So colourful. Why am I not surprised?
