The cup that cheers

I've spent so much time on developing the garden of late that I've hardly given a thought to the cottage interior,  but as the weather turns and nights draw in it's time to focus inside once more. Every now and then I like to move objects's lovely to 'rediscover' their beauty. I'm trying hard to save for a new kitchen but until such time as I can have the kitchen of my dreams I thought a few new purchases would cheer it up.
From my favourite shop, Anthropologie, I bought this pretty china cup for my morning tea. It might entice me out of bed on grey winter mornings!

Laura Ashley had everything on sale so I splurged on these...

I love the stem of this glass...

I have more fabric than I have time to make things but I couldn't resist buying a metre of this beautiful new fabric from Cath Kidston. I love all the UK landmarks don't you? I think it will will make a fabulous cushion. 

... and what could be nicer after all that shopping than to sit down with a frothy cappuccino and enjoy all your beautiful blogs out there :-)
