vintage orange Burleigh Orbit cup & saucer | H is for Home

Wow!! How about this for an eye-popping bit of orange Op Art loveliness?

vintage orange Burleigh Orbit cup maker's mark | H is for Home

This cup & saucer is from the Orbit range produced by Burleigh in the 1960s. It’s superb and quite uncharacteristic of their usual output which is normally very traditional. Someone must have had a rush of blood to the head (or taken LSD) that week. It’s quite a rare pattern and doesn’t appear for sale often.

It’s a great display piece, and would also provide the perfect pick-me-up start to the day filled with strong coffee. We’ve got a few for sale and they’ll appear in our webshop soon.

iPad Mini in iPad Mini executive case cover from Snugg

I’ve bought Justin an early Christmas present. It’s a snazzy new iPad Mini! So when Snugg got in touch with us to ask if we’d like to review one of their products, I knew exactly which one I wanted – the iPad Mini executive case cover… in gorgeous orange leather!

Tuesday Huesday: Santorini

orange-painted building in Santorini

Two bank holidays in quick succession (with almost unheard of sunny weather both weekends!) have us thinking about having a summer break. We’ve been to Greece before – over a decade ago – spending 2 lovely, relaxing weeks in Skopelos; one of the country’s quieter islands.

Santorini, where this photo is of, is quintessential Greece – the still turquoise sea, the windmills, the whitewashed buildings with blue-domed roofs. That’s why this bright orange-painted building stands out on the cliffs above the sea. You can spot it easily here… and here… and here!

Mario Batali Edition orange Crocs
Crocs Unisex-Adult Bistro Batali Sandal –  £35-40, Amazon

Regular readers know of my love affair with orange – it’s the colour we’ve used on the walls and for some of the appliances in our kitchen.

These orange Crocs, the Bistro Mario Batali Edition, were specially made for “kitchen aficionados” apparently. So, they’re the perfect match for when I’m in the mood for whipping up a little soufflé or something!
