Thanks for all the kitchen love in my last post :) I'm so glad there are so many bloggers out there who have the same taste as me as I certainly love looking at all your lovely homes, and sharing snippets of mine. I have a couple of new things to show today, first up is The Primrose Bakery Book which I made sure I had a good look through in real life before buying it. Its a gorgeous gorgeous book and it has recipes in it that I will actually make, unlike a lot of the cake books which are beautiful but the cakes are either too basic or waaaay too fancy. This book has a good mix!
I love to read cookery books as if they are a real book. I like to sit down in the evening and read page by page with all the little hints, tips and stories behind the recipes. I love pouring over every detail in every photo. One thing I have definitely decided is I really would like to go to the Primrose Bakery seeing as its not far from me it seems silly not to!
I also wanted to share my mums little collection of green uranium glass or 'depression' glass I think its called. The little jug and trinket dish were both found at Fleetville Vintage Emporium. The taller jug at the back was a gift from a lovely friend. I just love the shapes of the glass and - well, I love jugs as you well know!
At this time of year I love to have a change about, move things around and I made a new little pastel display in the kitchen - feeling much more spring like now!
The new pyrex bowls join some IKEA milkshake/latte cups on the "shelf of blue pastel goodness" :)
I LOVE these cups, we use them all the time, but they are too nice to be hidden away in the cupboard, so out they came, and the blue bowls neeeeeded to join them.
More shuffling...make way for vintage glasses!
Ooh yes, now my Sunday consisted of visiting a new place that had opened up in Angel, called Bill's Cafe. Albert and I went for hot chocolate and cake mid afternoon. It was fab! Best hot chocolate I have had in a while - look it came with a flake!
Inside Bill's is just brilliant. Its full of their own label products; jams, chutneys, biscuits, flavoured lemonades. Just an amazing selection. If you order a tea you get it in a fab enamel teapot (which are available to buy) and they also have their own cookbook which you can buy there too!
The shelves....oh my! The shelves :)
Just brilliant, great service and delicious food too! I love trying out new places to eat, and I think Bill's will be somewhere we'll keep visiting for a while!
Even their outside area is pretty...I want to steal the flowers in teapot idea, I think it looks so pretty and is a good way of showing off some nice china too!
