FREEBIE: 'Bon Appetit' cutlery tags { Part One } | July 27, 2012

As you probably have figured out, I love details. I'm a consummate 'details' nerd.

Some might say that attaching a tag to your dinner party guest's cutlery that wishes them 'bon appetit'  is gratuitous nonsense. I, on the other hand, live for this stuff.

You know you do too.

Collected | February 10, 2012

I have a particular weakness for homewares...such as, colourful bowls and interesting glassware. Shown above are the current state of my collections in the aforementioned areas. Not shown above are my vast collections of teapots, teacups, bottles and jars.

There are only two things I know for certain in this life- Firstly, that all these collections will continue to grow at an alarming rate, despite having run out of excuses for why such growth is necessary. Secondly, that I have absolutely no willpower whatsoever.
