Anti clockwise: Neom organic candle, Wedgwood teapot (on sale here), Robert Welch butter knife, vintage spoon, Wedgwood teacup and saucer (on sale here).
When it comes to fashion, I prefer black, stark, edgy and dramatic clothes but my preference is quite the opposite with tea sets, cutlery or flowers. I like them pretty, dainty and in hues of pastels. It's like a Jekyll and Hyde thing......... I love the smiles on my friends' faces when I serve them tea in pretty cups and teapots. Tea invariably tastes better too (it's probably a psychological effect). I found these antique looking ivory cutlery from John Lewis which I adore. Ditto for the butter knife. Beautifully made and very affordable too. I reserve my favorite 3 wick Neom organic candles for special occasions. They contain none of those nasty synthetic fragrance and don't cause my asthma to flare up.
Is anyone out there collecting pretty and dainty tea sets too? Or as obsessed as I am about cutlery?
