This week saw the delivery of my Vegetable Allotment lampshades. Two 20cm shades for the mantlepiece, and one 30cm for the sideboard.

Not only decorative but they provide a lovely soft light source for cosy nights in.

Having spotted these in the November edition of Country Living magazine I thought that they would be perfect for my sitting room.

They are manufactured in the UK by Cream Cornwall . Each shade features beautiful line drawings of vegetables paired with traditional Victorian garden tools.

To create the look I desired I bought two antique black Stork lamp bases from OKA for the smaller shades.

For the 30cm shade I sourced this gorgeous Shaftsbury base from Neptune in Weybridge.

Currently celebrating the launch of their new season’s colour, Saffron, it was a delight to attend this weekend’s event.

This joyous hue is the perfect antidote for the solemn times that are currently engulfing mankind.

Leaving the store with my new lamp base, a complimentary Saffron coloured shopper, and a bunch of daffs brightened my day.

The good news is that this Spring event now runs until April 14th.
