what holds us together

I discovered these great things at Origin Craft Fair in London. Unfortunately I did not go there but they have such an exciting website I felt like I was browsing stalls from my very own home in my pyjamas and cardigan.

Julie Haslam creates Domestic Bliss with her range of tea towels aprons and other linen things. I love the recipes







...but thought I'd also include the shopping list for a very special collector I know ...







Claire Coles stitches things. Wallpaper, cups and saucers and tables. Her art is fun and suprising but also makes me contemplate the world we live in, what holds us together. Somehow I don't find a stitched table incongruous but tender and touching.

Great post - everything is so beautiful.

Add some cream, and that shopping list could be Nigel Slater's....
