Wishlist – 2009
It’s that time of year when people start to ask me what I would like for Christmas. To be honest I don’t need anything, hey our cottage is no Tardis and the secret hidey holes are becoming increasingly crammed, however here is a selection of a few things I would love to be treated to. I suppose they do show my love of vintage, slightly eccentric things.
I first saw designs by Hanne Rysgaard on Not On The High Street and fell in love her dotty milk jug. It equals my hankering for the Made in England rolling pin last year. I have it on good authority that she also sells other ceramic items including cake stands.
I’m not sure if I would use these vintage Hovis tins for baking as I rarely bake bread in tins now, but I still love them. Like the picture suggests they would be great as a planter.
I’m on the look out for the perfect white china butter dish and cake/cheese dome…I’m still searching.
Ever since the School of Artisan Cookery opened earlier this year I’ve been interested in vising. I love the sound of their patisserie, artisan chocolate and preserves courses.
Vintage cookbooks, I just love them. I find it fascinating looking at ingredients and how you can witness social history changing by just looking at cookery books through the ages. I’m after a very old edition of Mrs Beeton, but given the prices they go for I could be saving for some time.
Lastly I’m after a vintage glass butterchurn as seen on River Cottage Winter on Thursday. No room for it in the house, but I would love one!
