Here’s My Handle, Here’s My Spout

I love my teapot. I think she is a most excellent host!

Designed by Kaj Franck for Iittala as part of the Teema range, she is robust, timeless, generous and utterly practical. I can see that we shall be companions for many years to come.

Kaj Franck is often referred to as the conscience of Finnish design. He removed everything excessive in his concepts, leaving only the essentials.

Cakes are an essential occasional treat and this pair bought from Ottolenghi, were just fine.

I declare that you all treat yourselves to something nice with your afternoon tea today…..Go on!
