round mirrored tray from H&M

It’s only the second of the month and already I have bought one thing (yesterday’s lightbox) and am about to buy another – this tray. I love trays. I have no idea why. Perhaps it’s the ceremonial aspect of them. Bringing in a tray with two mugs or glasses on it (along with a plate…

Today is quite simply a round up of a few of my favourite things. I was going to tell you how Mother came to stay last week and that in between telling me my toast had a hole in (it was a bagel) and accusing the cat of being too fat, she also suggested the…
