Anyone that knows me will agree that I have a lot of soft ‘vintagey’ (yes, I made that word up) colours and pastels in my home. My kitchen is a particularly strong example of this as it is predominantly shades of duck egg, soft pinks and blues alongside whites and creams.
It would be fair to say then, that I do love a pastel coloured kitchen accessory, particularly a pink one, and when I see anything in pink or duck egg, my heart beats just a touch faster and I hurriedly snap it up!
Now I don’t know about you, but I strongly feel that anything assisting you with household chores such as cleaning should bring a smile to your face whenever possible. You can imagine my delight then, when I saw these gorgeous pastel coloured dishcloths from Asda.
Seriously, how yummy are they! It gets better – they are only £1.00 for 4 – yes really – and they wash, and wash, and wash at 60 degrees and still remain as good as new!
I also spotted this adorable vintage style tea cup and saucer set from TK Maxx which was a ‘snip’ at just £6.99 – Mr Chandelier always laughs at that word, as I use it a lot when telling him about, or showing him, my shopping purchases – I’m not sure he agrees – his ‘snip’ doesn’t quite match my ‘snip’!
Just gorgeous and look how beautifully it goes with my other teacups and saucers which are genuine vintage pieces.
So, we can make and drink tea from pretty cups, then we can wash them up with matching pretty dishcloths but frankly, we are missing the cake.
However, don’t be thinking about baking cakes with any old brown or black sieve – NO – get down to Poundstretcher where the lovely Jane Asher has produced a range of gorgeous baking products in soft pink, duck egg, soft blue and lilac.
I bought these yummy little pieces – I had to – my kitchen ‘needs‘ them and frankly, it would be rude not to at £1.00 per item – yes really – bit shocking I know! Just don’t blame me when you find you’ve wasted an hour choosing which pieces to buy……Hmmm…….
I also saw these cute little jars in B & M – not sure what the B & M stands for but their stores are popping up everywhere – another ‘snip’ at £1.00 each – not sure what I will use them for but they are very adorable.
Have you bought any pastel bargains lately, I need to see them if you have.
