This week's Kitchen Crushes have an '..oh I do like to be beside the seaside...' theme. It didn't start out that way, I promise, but it's obviously the way my mind is creatively day dreaming today.
1. I've started eating eggs and soldiers for breakfast again. I'd totally forgotten how much of a simple pleasure this was. Packed full of Vitamin D, eggs are like a nutricious power-house and really give me a spring in my step in the morning (which we all need from times to time, let's me honest). These egg cups are by Charlotte Macey who hand makes pretty textiles, homewares and gifts. They would be perfect to serve my soft boiled eggs in - so cute and perfectly designed. You can buy them online here direct from her studio (I love the yacht one!)
2. I saw this necklace and it reminded me of fairground rides and amusement arcades by the seaside. It's called 'Paris scene necklace' (so I have no idea why it evoked memories of seasides!) and is from one of my favourite online shops 'The Prettiest Things' who make really random and uniquely fun jewellery. I think I'd wear this necklace to a summer evening dinner party.
3. My kitchen interior crush of the week - cornflower blue, hues and clean white painted wood. You can't go wrong. And the simple shelving is an organised winner. There's even fresh eggs on the table!
4. I love this print by Showler and Showler from notonthehighstreet.com. It's simple and fun. If I had the kitchen on the left, I'd hang it up on the wall. In this imaginary 'cornflower blue life' I'd probably have a yacht too.
Have a great weekend everyone!
