    Congratulations to Kristin Saegaert from Life Stories Books, whose name was just plucked from a hat – she’s the lucky winner of our stunning silver Anglepoise lamp from John Lewis. Thanks so much to everyone who entered.

    Oooh, don’t you just love this pic from Country Homes and Interiors? Obviously the Anglepoise is lovely – but I love this group of old jars! Got a bit of a thing for James Keiller & Sons Dundee Marmalade pots at the moment. Boyfriend says we don’t need any more ‘tat’. I beg to differ. – Ellie

    HOT SHOP: Bottle Green Homes

    After a lovely trip to Italy for a friend’s wedding, everything seems a bit boring today in comparison. Then this beautiful postcard from brand new mail order company Bottle Green Homes landed on my desk and cheered me up!

    Oooh, I do like a vintage bottle. Or five. And there are lots of other lovely things from some of my favourite stockists on the Bottle Green Homes website too – have a look!

    Nice photography from Jon Day. I’m busy compiling our Christmas gift guide today and gathering all the entrants for the Anglepoise lamp give-away – 6pm is the deadline, so now’s the time to enter if you haven’t already! I’ll announce the winner tomorrow. – Ellie

    Oooh la la! Here’s a little peek at the new Orla Kiely kitchenware range, due to be stocked at the likes of BlissHome and John Lewis later this summer…

    If you’re an Orla fan like me, this could all prove a little bit too exciting…

    Don’t you just love that yellow storage pot? I’d like three for tea, coffee and sugar. SIGH. – Ellie
