beauty in everyday life

I recently bought this new water bottle. (It's a V&A Museum product that I bought at my local garden centre.) I think its beautiful print will help me to carry it everywhere and use it consistently. Isn't the print lovely? It's a historic wallpaper design. It was designed by a man named William Morris in 1884. He said "Have nothing in your houses which you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful." This is also my Mum's philosophy--she is an expert at filling her house with beautiful and useful items. I have lots of her photos in our home--beautiful pictures of flowers, especially.

This week Mum and Dad have been staying with us and Mum helped me totally spring clean my kitchen and improve it. So I hope to post again later about my new item of kitchen furniture and the reorganisation of my cupboards. I also got new plates and napkins--ooh, the excitement!
