did you know that there are 2 items that are recommended for anniversary presents now, a traditional and a modern list?  i stick to the traditional – 20 years was china, so i bought robert a 1960’s china cup and saucer designed by Terence Conran from portobello market.  the market on saturday is a good inspiration for finding new and unique present ideas.

a couple of months ago, i bought an old linen runner piece from the cloth shop – must have been used for tea towels, but had some cushions made up instead;  if you buy the right width, you can get a good 3 cushions out of the length of material.

if there is any left over, you can use as a decorative table runner, always makes your tableware look more special.

just outside the cloth shop is my favourite stand on portobello with lovely Bella selling buttons, trimmings and old pieces of linen.
