'Mocha chocolata ya ya!' Etsy List by H is for HomeWoo hoo – it’s World Chocolate Day today so we’re getting into the swing of things with this Mocha chocolata ya ya! Etsy List. They’re not all edible, but they are all sweet as can be!

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?

H is for Home 'Shoots and leaves' Etsy List

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!

'Picnic' Etsy List by H is for Home

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!

H is for Home 'Clockwatching' Etsy List

Clocks and watches are almost things of the past thanks to everyone having a mobile phone with time, date, alarm and even timer functions.

Week days during my early school life began with me slamming down on the knob of a purple Westclox ‘Big Ben’ pedestal clock. Years later, this gave way to a boxy Sony Digimatic clock alarm radio. Today, we still have a Sony clock alarm radio – this time, a Dream Machine – shaped like a cube with LED numbers and snooze button. A ticking clock, like a dripping tap, would keep me awake all night!

We have a fantastic vintage Seth Thomas starburst clock in our lounge and another Metamec version on the top floor – both beautiful mid century modern icons!

Etsy List: Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

'Mirror, Mirror on the Wall' H is for Home Etsy ListIn 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.
