Because my blog is only in its early days, I have a confession to make before we go any further. I think I’m addicted to Scandinavian homewares. Not all of them, of course. Just the scrumptious ones. And I have a particularly scrumptious set of bowls in my kitchen cupboard that bring me absolute joy whenever I use — or see — them.
I can’t wait any longer to show them to you, so here they are:
my lovely iittala origo bowls... just look at that colour!
And here are some close up shots, just because they’re so gorgeous:
orange, blue, turquoise, white... so yummy and fresh
this is my other favourite colour combo... all those reds!
Phew. Glad I got THAT out of my system. I’ve been dying to share my bowls with you for days. I find that the colours are so bright and happy. (Oh by the way, iittala bowls are made in Finland and they do a lot more than bowls. Do some naughty online shopping here: www.iittala.com) They may cost a bit extra than regular bowls but they are very much worth it. Especially when you have to get up early on the days when you don’t really feel like it. On those days, you can be sure to feel a whole lot better about the world as soon as your bleary morning eyes lock on to those glorious stripes of colour. Thank you, iittala origo bowl designer. I know there’s more to life than material possessions, but these bowls definitely give off a warm and uplifting glow!
I’m no expert, but I have heard that the Nordic Peoples love their colour. After all, in Finland they don’t call it “Winter”. They call it “The Darkness”. So you’d want to be stocking up on some fairly colourful bits’n’bobs to furnish your nest with, I imagine. What a brilliant idea!
Righty-o, time for bed. I’ve put up two posts today, which may be a bit excessive, but I’m just getting the hang of blogging and I love it! I hope you enjoyed my little introduction to the world of iittala bowls, if you didn’t already know about them. And if you did… I’m sure you understand. Nighty-night. x
ps tomorrow I think it’s time we step outside — even if it’s still raining — and I can bring you up-to-date with my seedlings. Wait until you see what I’m growing!
