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!
Lots of Love from Jack and Betty xxx
It’s been over a month since our last post – never fear, we are still around, doing house-y things! Work is getting in the way just a little at the minute, so in the mean-time here’s a few drool-worthy bits and bobs from Betty’s Pinterest Board, hope to come back with some more content soon!

Surely every home needs these?

A 'hearty' pie xx
Betty’s been in the kitchen today, there’s no real recipe for this pie… just a pack of casserole steak, chopped into cubes and fried up with some onion and mushrooms – add in some beef stock and red wine, simmer for half an hour and then pop into the pie dish with some puff pastry and cook for half an hour at 180 degrees!
The edges are a little messy, but surely the heart more than makes up for that?

Betty’s still not quite happy with her Walk in Wardrobe – but Jack’s helped it along the way! He tidied out the whole room on his own one day last week, and set up an adorable powder room as a surprise! We’ve been donated some sets of drawers from our friend Max which has been amazing – we actually have space to put our clothes that isn’t boxes, or an already overflowing wardrobe!
You can just about see the princess mirror in the last photo – and this is where Betty gets ready in the morning now, all of her cosmetics are ready to hand, and tidy, so much easier to keep clean! You can see here a vintage vanity set that was a christmas gift from Betty’s mom.
It’s also Barney’s favourite room of the house, because it’s warm, and he’s not allowed in there very often.

aka Betty buy hideous rubbish! Jack and I really like to thrift, there are plenty of charity shops around where we live and it’s really great to see what you can find. I think it all started with my vintage tea cup collection, I was given a lot of them by my sister and I just kept on going – getting into charity shops to source out new tea cups led to other buys and now I like to shop around pretty regularly to find things to cheery up the place!
Here you can see (left to right) a vintage photo frame, with an old receipt that I found at work from a local drapers – a bit of an odd thing to frame, I know, but I really liked the typography. A Small Pot with a bird on it, I have no idea what this is for but I like birds a lot… as you can see from that rather odd ceramic peacock handbell. Then there’s Jack’s decanters which we are still too poor to buy liquor for, and a really rather odd deer figurine. I do have another deer (which I’ll photograph when I show you the bedroom) – this one’s strangely pearlescent and I couldn’t resist.
Jack’s pipe isn’t a charity shop buy, he is just genuinely that old fashioned.

A little while ago we reblogged this Photo Wall from Stone and Rose, and we’ve been working on our own family photo wall since! It’s just in the stairwell, and we’re only using black and white photos at the minute – photos of our great grandparents, our grandparents and our parents. It’s been really great looking through the old albums and asking who certain people are, finding out the stories of those photos.
Nowhere Near Finished Yet
Mostly Betty’s family are on the top, and Jack’s family are on the bottom rows – they’ll expand when we’ve got the printer working again! Our personal favourites are the beautiful photo of Betty’s Grandparents’ wedding, and the rather lovely one of Jack’s dad holding a panda! We’ll keep you updated when we add more!
