A much overdue thank you to Jenny at The Treasure Hunter UK (which is an amazing blog, that you should follow if you don’t already) for making us the winner of her subscriber competition, yay!
We won this absolutely gorgeous ‘Secret Garden’ cafetiere from La Cafetiere. – anything with birds on it makes Betty intensely happy, so we’re very grateful! Even the box that it came in is gorgeous (you can see it in the photo).
Very little to report at the moment, we’ve both been at work so much that we’ve barely had time to do anything to the house, let alone blog about it – but this week is our week off, so you should be hearing more from us soon!
Lots of Love from Jack and Betty xx
A little while back, our lovely friend Emma hosted a Jamie at Home party (at our lovely local pub – The Bridge – more on that later) and we scooped up some gorgeous kitchenware!
No prizes for guessing why we bought the ‘Betty’ mini-flan dishes! The Betty range is really gorgeous, and just what we wanted in our kitchen – there’s loads of great 1950s-inspired cookware in the range, and a fantastic pudding bowl that we have our eyes on! The colours are just gorgeous, and the dishes are really substantial and pretty!
These are just the cutest, too – can’t wait to make pancakes and get some maple syrup for these lovely diner-inspired pouring jugs.
In other news…
So now you know!
You can book a Jamie at Home party with Emma here, she is the nicest person you’re ever likely to meet, too – so that’s always a bonus!

We’ve got the men from Mercian coming to the house tomorrow, to sort out a little problem with the flooring – and we realised that we didn’t have enough mug-sized mugs! Plenty of smaller ones, cute ones, tea-cups, coffee-cups-and-saucers but only a few mugs really. Betty has had Sunday dinner with her mum today, so she’s raided her cupboards for all of the things that are hers, and all of the things that she could have that were otherwise unwanted. Along with the collection – some vintage patterned pyrex egg cups (left) that match a coffee cup set and jug that we bought from a charity shop about this time last year – bonus!
It’s our first night sleeping at the house tonight, we’ve put the sofa bed upstairs in the little room with the boiler in it (it’s cozy and lovely) so we can get up first thing to let everyone in. Onward!
Love from Jack and Betty xx
