I’m on a bit of a homewares kick at the moment. I have always loved collecting bits and bobs for the home, but winning stuff is awesome! About a month ago I won this darling illustrated London skyline jug by Cecily Vessey through a competition. It’s funny really, because I had already spotted this awesome artist-designer at the Renegade Craft Fair last year and picked up a little tea bag holder as a stocking filler for the boyf.
The competition was held by the blogger agency Nuffnang and it was totally unexpected that I might win something. I was just retweeting something to be helpful and not really thinking about winning.
Anyhow, I am super grateful because the jug is exactly by kind of bag! The illustration is a stunning line drawing of the London (my hometown) skyline.
It is a fine bone china jug and the illustration includes all the major London landmarks including Big Ben, London Eye, Battersea Power Station, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Shard and more.
A big thank you to both Cecily Vessey for the lovely gift and Nuffnang for picking me out the hat to win it. I love pretty homewares!
Have you picked up anything pretty for your home recently?
