Ooh, I wonder what this could be...

Only my, I mean our, belated Anniversary present from my Mum and Dad. Mum knows my love for Orla, along with my love for a red and blue combo, so was lovely enough to give them to me, I mean us.

Are they not the most beautiful tableware that you have ever seen? I adore the usual simplistic design we know and love from Orla. And the retro design of the pieces themselves are oozing with charm.

I love the teapot and I know I, sorry, sorry, WE will use it and get pleasure from it every day, but it's the butter dish that I am truly in love with. The retro shape is just delightful and the chunkiness of the lid is such a joy to hold (Karen, for goodness sake it's a butter dish).

All that's missing now is a couple of these to complete the look...

Gorgeous! Aren't you (both) lucky! ;) And I think it's very important to find joy in the small things, like butter dish handles.xx

Lucky you! I think I would be making constant pots of tea if I had the teapot, it is perfect!

I know what you mean, I can go gaga over the simplest thing - but if it's a pleasure to look at, feels good to the touch and is well designed then doesn't that make ALL the difference?
