I must be a bit behind the times because I’ve only just discovered Paula Nicholls’ lovely vintage-inspired Betty Boyns designs.
My favourite is called ‘Kitchenalia’ and those of you who know me and my car boot habits will understand why I’m particularly fond of it.
I’ve just bought a Kitchenalia tea cosy!
There are loads of gorgeous designs, and they’re made into aprons, bags, cards, cushions, oilcloth, mugs, gift wrap, tablecloths, tea towels, etc.
I also really like ‘Tea Time’:
And ‘Chicken Little’:
The ‘Boating’ design is lovely too:
Oh, and ‘Wow It’s a Fish’:
You can buy Betty Boyns online or at the shop in St. Ives. If you can’t get to St. Ives, don’t worry – rumour has it the products will soon be available more widely!
