Stylish egg holder

Stylish egg holder

Cleverly designed to look like the familiar cardboard egg boxes, this egg holder is actually made of ceramic.

It can accommodate up to nine eggs and can be used out on a kitchen worktop surface, or in your fridge, holding the eggs securely so they won’t accidentally get broken.

The ceramic egg box holder comes in classic white and is available from Rockett St George for £9.95

Rob Ryan limited edition laser cut

Can we? Shall we? Limited edition laser cut

Intricate laser cut

If you want to invest in some modern new artwork, then how about this laser cut by designer Rob Ryan?

Entitled, ‘Can We? Shall We?’ the limited edition red lasercut is one of only 250. It measures 27cm by 37.5cm and comes mounted on white card, ready for framing.

Although you might not be able to see it that clearly on the picture, there’s some delicately cut-out wording running down the middle of the piece. This text reads:

 ”Can We? Shall We? One day very soon, let us go away together just you and me. Can We? Shall We? Call in sick one day and travel to the sea and hold hands all day.

Can We? Shall We? Eat our sandwiches on the train, get drunk on fresh air and come home tired and never tell anyone….Ever.”

The unusual laser cut can be purchased from Rob Ryan’s store on Etsy (although it is priced in US dollars, it’s shipped from the UK).

We love these fresh and bright Potter’s Choice coasters and matching trivet from Anthropologie.

The floral motif on the earthenware coasters and trivet has been handcarved. The pieces are then finished off with glossy coats of vivid green and blue shades to produce a stunning end result.

The coasters are 4″ square, each featuring a sightly different design, and cost £10.18 per set online. The trivet measures 8″ square and is priced at £8.90 online (prices in store may vary).

Handy storage pots

These two colourful storage pots are Fair Trade products and would be handy for storage purposes in the kitchen, or other parts of your home (I rather fancy storing sweets or nibbles in one on my desk).

They come sold as a set of two and are available at the reduced price of £15 from Plumo.

Nina Campbell napkins

We spotted these Nina Campbell napkins featured in the January 2010 issue of Easy Living magazine.

The pictures don’t really do them justice, but the crisp white napkins are subtlely decorated with either a butterfly or dragonfly design. They’re available embroidered in either silver or gold and measure 54cm by 54cm.

Although very simple, it’s an effective way of freshening up white napkins and adding an element of interest. They’d look lovely on any discerning dining table.

The napkins are £6.99 each from Nina Campbell.
