This week's news

I have two bits of news this week ...

The first piece of news is that I bought the November issue of the new Homes+ magazine yesterday and saw that one of the promo photos for the magazine's next addition (due on sale 10th November) has our house featured with our daughter Jessica. 

A few months ago I was approached to see if we wanted to have our home photographed for the new magazine and of course we said yes (I could not pass up the opportunity). My daughters and I had a fabulous time with talented photographer Chris Warnes and we can't wait to see how the photos of our home turned out. I hope to write another post once the actual feature of our home get published next month.

Check out Homes+ magazine at or To find out more about the photographic genius of Chris Warnes, check out his website Chris Warnes Photography.

My second bit of news is that over the last few days I have been busy changing the look of my online shop's website. I wanted to make it less busy and more tablet and phone friendly. I even managed to add a slideshow to show case special offers and upcoming products. I hope you like the new layout too :-)

Add a touch of GEEK to your home

Our newest products this week are all about getting in tough with your inner GEEK. We all did Science at school, and you either loved it or hated it. For those of you that know me personally you will understand why I could resist including these gems in my range of decor.

Two different types of products are available:

1) Beakers and conical (or Erlenmeyer) flasks, and
2) Reagent bottles

These vessels can be used as vases for flowers, plant cuttings, terrariums, storage containers, or simply display as is on a shelf.

All of these items are genuine laboratory grade glassware, but are all BRAND NEW so there is no chance of them having been previously used in a lab and contaminated with any nasties.
