We’re firm believers in having a little bit of chocolate every day. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants and it’s believed to lower your blood pressure levels, cholesterol levels and may help prevent memory loss, don’tcha know? How will you be having your chocolate today?

I loved Lynne Truss’ book, Eats, Shoots & Leaves. Like her, I’m a real stickler when it comes to (redundant) apostrophes, Oxford commas (I don’t use them) and punctuation marks in general. I compose text messages, emails and tweets with as much correct punctuation and as little abbreviation as possible – a real editorial feat sometimes!
That book title was the inspiration for this week’s Etsy List post. I must go back and re-read it soon!
It’s National Picnic Week this week. We love heading out for a walk with a rucksack packed with the newspaper, sandwiches, a flask of tea, chocolate biscuits and perhaps a pork pie for Justin to share with Fudge. We have a couple of secret, off-the-beaten-path picnic spots where we while away the time listening to the sounds of moorland streams, birds and sheep. Hours can go by without us seeing another soul.
It also happens to be the summer solstice this week; hopefully there’ll be glorious sunshine so that both can be enjoyed to the full!
PS: Etsy has just released its first ever TV ad in the UK – check it out below! 50 Etsy Sellers took part and if you like any of what you see featured on screen, you can find them here.
In this week’s Etsy List we’re going to reflect on vintage mirrors (See what we did there?) ;-).
Most homes have at least one – enabling a last minute check before heading out into the big, wide world.
Mirrors are essential for putting on make-up, doing your hair, checking if something fits or if those colour combinations work.
And it’s not only personal grooming – they’re ideal for reflecting light into a dark room or making a small space look larger.
They have a decorative aspect too of course with a limitless variety of designs, materials & colours on offer.
Contemporary or vintage, striking stand-alone pieces or multiple mirrors to fill a whole wall… here are a few suggestions.
