It’s an odd title isn’t it? It’s definitely not one I ever thought I’d write either. But recently I’ve been unloading the dishwasher and have felt so sad that our crockery is looking well-loved… and um, tired.
My beloved Cath Kidston plates have been washed and washed, and their spots are fading. Not to mention our side plates and bowls.
These plates, bowls, mugs and glasses all hold memories. Most were purchased for Nick and I’s first flat in Brighton. And what a flat; I still dream about the amazing windows that looked out over the city and the sea. They have served the meals we ate when we moved in. When we had our flat warming. When we found out we were pregnant with Busby.
And they have travelled far with us. From Lewes (East Sussex), to West Yorkshire, to finally East Yorkshire where we now live.
But now I feel like it’s time to start searching for some new crockery. New crockery to create new memories with. And I’ve been perusing the Debenhams website in search of gorgeous dinner plates and bowls.
The At Home with Ashley Thomas range is absolutely divine. Here are a couple of my favourites from the range:
I’m also loving these plates from the Royal Doulton range and the Nkuku – Mustard yellow handpainted ‘Datia’ side plate:
How well would these go with my Instagram feed? I can’t resist yellow…
Nick won’t agree that we need more mugs (we probably don’t – but I have this thing with buying them), and these four gorgeous ones caught my eye! I especially love the Sass & Belle ‘M’ mug, which would be perfect for Mother’s Day.
There are lots of discounts over on Groupon’s Debenhams deal page, so I’m going to continue browsing and definitely take advantage of these when I make my purchase!
