Salvation Furniture table in our kitchen diner

Adelle recently entered an Instagram competition hosted by Notonthehighstreet. People were invited to post a #shelfie – an image of a shelf in their house. The prize was a Kanteen table from Salvation Furniture.

Lo & behold, our shelfie won!

The table is made from lime-washed, reclaimed wooden boards with a metal frame beneath. We like the character of the wood – and the rustic, vintage industrial look. It makes a great dining table and we were tempted to leave it in our kitchen diner, but we already have a nice baker’s table that acts as our food preparation & eating area. Fortunately, the table is also perfect as an office desk or craft station so it will put to good use upstairs.

Yes, it’s March, but we’ve only just got round to getting ourselves a 2013 calendar. We have high standards & requirements, you see, when it comes to choosing our annual calendar – it needs to be long & narrow as it has to fit the little strip of wall just inside the front door…

…it also needs to be attractive – no fluffy, cutesy pictures of animals much as we love them; no pop stars (Justin Bieber or Cliff Richard just won’t cut the mustard!); no artistic/moody/atmospheric shots of castles/ruins/seascapes/mountains; no humour (who wants to hear the same joke every day for a month?). We trawled Etsy, Folksy and Notonthehighstreet and eventually came across this Gail Kelly calendar.

We first fell in love with Gail’s linocut illustrations when we saw her at the British Craft Trade Fair in Harrogate about 5 years ago. We’ve been stocking her tree greeting cards at H is for Home ever since!
