Lace, Doilies and cups of tea…



I own some plates and cups from Australian brand Robert Gordon and they are some of my all time favourite pieces at home.

I had saved up my pennies and purchased them from the retail shop I used to work at during uni which my sisters used to call the 'nanna' shop as it sold all things floral, pretty, lacey and lots and lots of doilies.  I had lots of fun working there and this was years ago when doilies were super uncool and before they were featured in every other wedding blog.  I think I have always been a bit of a nanna at heart :)

The crockery has followed me on all my adventures - from uni, to starting my career and moving out of home and today here in Singapore.  Not expensive or fancy but they hold such fond memories and I always love having a cup of tea or coffee out of them.   I don't think I will ever be able to throw them out.  Seems a bit silly to be so sentimental…

In any case, I was delighted to see one of my favourite design blogs, The Design Files, run a lovely story on the family behind Robert Gordon and their business.  Definitely worth a read.  Check out the Robert Gordon website for yourself to see all the pretty stuff.  My pieces (which are now discontinued) are from the Liberty range.  If only they shipped to Singapore…
