Some interior products I like

Pendant Jelly mold Lights(Pendant Jelly Lights – Made from vintage jelly moulds, with jelly mould roses and silk covered flex.)


As faithful readers will know, I am moving to my new house this September. I’ve been extensively looking for sofas, coffee & dining tables. So far I’ve not come across ones that I like (that’s within our budget), but during my search, I did come across many great designs, that’s related to food/ kitchen (+etc), so here’s a snippet of them that caught my attention!


Beech Ten Drawer Apple Rack(Beech Ten Drawer Apple Rack – Made from solid beech, this traditional & useful piece is ideal not just for storing fruit & veg, but makes a lovely storage unit for blankets etc)

duncan mug(Duncan Mug – Three coffee mugs featuring embossed molds of Custard Cream, Jammie Dodger or Shortbread that reveal themselves as you finish your drink. By Wai-Lian Scannell, London.)

traditional english roller towel holder(Oak Roller Towel Holder – Traditional oak roller towel holder made in England.)

Wheeled Table shaker style

(Bespoke Shaker Wheeled Table)

Rainbow MAKER(Original Rainbow Maker – Fill your room with a dazzling swirl of rainbow with clever solar powered device that sticks to the window by suction cap. Direct sunlight turns the motor, and, in turn, the Swarovski crystal rotates, creating beautiful rainbows that dance around the room.)


Finally, a bit of inspirational link to a House & Garden feature on actress, Chloë Sevigny’s house. She’s got such amazing sense of style… love her…!



Last week at the market was superb. What with the weather forecast telling me it’s gonna be hot, I gambled on making extra, & bingo, it paid off. There were tons of people out, enjoying the hot weather that we’ve been sorely missing the whole of last month, & these people were hungry for cakes! I presume most of them were taking it to a picnic or to a BBQ party.

– AND, guess what guys, after my rambling of poor sales the week before, this time I managed to sell out in record-breaking time of 2.40pm. ;-) Not so bad afterall ei?
The whole day was just wonderful – friends drop by to see me, & then my ex-flatmate girlfriends come by at the end to meet up, & we sit outside the pub basking the gorgeous sun drinkin’ n’ chatting, looking at the market packing up after a buzzing day. D & our son join us after they’ve been to a birthday party, then an old college friend drops by out-of-the-blue too! – I managed to get very drunk after that…


  1. Congratulations on your sold out market day! and thanks for the link to Chloe’s photo spread–absolutely gorgeous. Oh, and I love love love the pendant jelly lights. Are you actually getting any of these items for your house? Aloha!

  3. The foldable cutting boards sound wonderful. I’m glad to here this week’s market went well! Heat here is causing me to avoid the Wednesday afternoon market. Hope all is well. ~J

  4. Hey there Jerry! The foldable chopping board will stop that pesky carrot slice rolling off I’m sure. Is the Wednesday afternoon market a food market?
