Time to read and sip tea; lapsang souchong and Nicholas Haslam's, Folly de Grandeur for me and spend an excessive amount of time playing on Pinterest and skittering around online.
I just stumbled onto London designer, Richard Brendon's cornucopia of delightful things this morning and now my emergency neon want button is flashing at full warp speed.
He takes orphaned antique saucers and re homes them with modern cups gilded in platinum or gold, the pattern reflects onto the cups and hey presto they are wed again.
I raise my cup to his dedication to finding beauty in the everyday.
