Out of time

Time is one for flying by, slipping away, and even disappearing.

This struck me this weekend as I was reminded of how long I’ve been neglecting this little virtual platform of mine.

Mind you, over those weeks of silence, I did find the time to scribble down blog ideas on post-it notes amidst other daily to-do tasks. Yet none have materialised into actual blog posts and my achievements of the past few weeks are so few I’m wondering what the hell happened to time.

My obsession with clocks and watches doesn’t help me work out where time goes. If anything, it’s constantly ticking away at me reminding me another hour has passed without a word from me on this blog!

This fear stops me from filling my house with clocks; a small one on my wrist and a huge one in the bathroom suit me fine.

But I could maybe get away with clocks of the non-mechanised sort:

Alarm Clock cushion, Debenhams

Who Cares clock tote bag, Cafe Press

Lucia Gloding print, Cuckoo Clock and Swan Chair, Rockett St George

Cake Time tea towel, Mr PS

Clocks lampshade, ATADesigns



Message in a bottle

My new favourite thing is a good bottle.

No, I’m not talking about my taste for wine here (mind you…). It’s the container itself that interests me.

All shapes, colours and styles: milk, apothecary, perfume, seltzer, poison or even beer…

I once bought these gorgeous apothecary ones on eBay:

…but was slightly disappointed to discover how small they were upon arrival…

with years of practice (and disappointments) under my belt, I now know to read the descriptions in FULL…

So until I can find a whole load of FULL-SIZED mismatching bottles to extend this meagre collection, I’m adding these to my wish list:

‘Bottles’  roller blind from Bodie & Fou, currently £38.99 (sale price)

vintage milk bottles from Pedlars, £6,50 each

white bottle light from Rockett St George, £45

PS: I’m packing to go to the South of France for a sunny week, so if you’re bored in my absence, my next post over at Natural History will go up on Tuesday.

Bonnes vacances!
