The Ornamented Life

Oh, how I subscribe to the philosophy behind these products.  Why do things have to be functional and ugly when instead they can be beautifully designed and a pleasure to look at?

Washing up would be so much more fun if you could peer down at a pretty lace drain.


And why bother with disguising screws when instead you can just use decorative ones?

And carving the roast would no longer be the Husband’s job if I had a chopping board with floral gutters to catch the meat juices.





And many more cakes would be made in the ‘mirrormirror’ household if I had these four beautiful ornamental cake tins, which can be arranged in all sorts of different ways.
