Kitsch! En accessories & gadgets

We've been buying lots of great kitchen items lately...

A Le Creuset dish (for lasagne):

Espresso set (ours is in red!):

Pretty cake stand:

Three mixing bowls:

Large Marimekko bowl, which we put fruit in:

Andrew bought a pasta machine too, so we have fresh pasta now!

I think Guzzini could be my next obsession.

I love that cake stand, it's so pretty! Those fairy cakes don't look too bad either. Mmm.

I bought a pink polka-dot mug from Sainsbury's the other day and it was only 99p. It's so nice! And as a present for my new kitchen I was given a lovely set of Cath Kidston tin canisters.

Eee!

Sylvie, have you been buying stuff from that wonderful discount kitchen place in Swindon?

Next time I have to go down for work I'm planning to bring a case with me so I can get loads of nice stuff. The discounts are really pretty good, but last time I could only manage some nice pasta/rice tins, which were quite kitsch and lovely despite being designed by that annoying shrieking woman from Changing Rooms. I saw a gorgeous dinner service which I seriously considered trying to take back on the train before coming to my senses (I also had a case and another bag).

I'd quite like one of those cake stands but I fear it would sit on the worktop unused and eventually become a receptacle for keys and drawing pins and stuff.

Do you mean the outlet village? That place is pretty good for kitchen stuff, although a lot of it has closed down. I got the Le Creuset dish from their shop, the espresso set from Whittards and the mixing bowls from the huge kitchen bit.

The cake stand was a present from Andrew's mum (aww) and the Marimekko bowl was from a brilliant shop in Salisbury, which had everything.

We were considering buying a waffle maker, but I'm starting to think it's too much of a novelty item.

Yeah, it's right next to our head office, so I just ended up in there one lunchtime and was amazed by all the cheap goods. I think it was inside the massive interiors bit. I hope it's still there when I go back!

We got a few lovely things from Jonny's parents as a wedding gift:

A four-piece cookware set from Le Creuset. Sadly it is only these black ones that have the metal "knob" (haha knob) on them. The other onesa re kind of known for breaking very easily, so we got the ones that are the most durable.

From the same brand, a stainless steel steamer thing you can put into the saucepans

Aaaaand a Brita filter jug!
