Sunny Swedish Plates

These melamine plates are so happy and sunny I thought they might brighten your rainy Friday afternoon.

Plan to take them on your first summer picnic or get them for your kids.

You’d better eat your dinner quick before Mr Lion gobbles it up. He looks like he’s eyeing up your neighbours food too.

Reenact The Tiger Who Came To Tea with this Tiger plate. I love his bewildered expression.

Their cousin the Cat has requested you have something fish-based please.

The designs aren’t all animals, there is a happy clown, a sun and this apple plate which unfortunately won’t count toward your 5 a day.

The plates are designed by Swedish illustrator Ingela P Arrhenius and are available from Lagom Design for £8 each.

Tea Cosy Handbags

Tea cosy handbags. Now that’s not a phrase you hear everyday is it?

Hands up who else can remember this ginger cat tea cosy? My love of ginger cats, the memory of my granny’s tea cosy like this and the fact that it has been made into a handbag make this hankering gold! I love its quirkiness.

Ginger Cat Hankering

Our hankering for a ginger cat four months ago led us to rehoming these gorgeous ginger brothers.

Biggles & Scott

The friendly vets at Vet4Life have featured Biggles and Scott’s story on their website. If you live near the Teddington area and need a vet, I can recommend Ian and the veterinary nurses at Vet4Life, they are so friendly and helpful. Even the cats agree!
