I’ve a really interesting online store, for this weeks addition of I Love Mondays.
Vinegar and Brown Paper : Ideas Etched in Glass.
Vinegar and Brown Paper was created by Andy Poplar. After an award-winning career in advertising, he decided he’d reached the end of his creative tether and left to become a freelance writer, designer and stay-at-home dad.
When I went onto Andy’s about page and saw the above photograph of him in the mirror, I stopped dead in my tracks. This is just so true, and a great philosophy to live by.
There are so many lovely ideas on the site, but I thought I would share my three favourites.
How about this for a Valentines gift, a shaving mirror (£30), I really think I should buy Tall Dad this, you know for all the times I’m just a little bit grumpy…
There are lots of etched glass milk bottles (£18) on the site. I think they would make a great gift for someone special. I have a vintage advertising bottle, and use it as a milk jug for cereals when we are having a weekend lazy breakfast all together. I think this one could be used like that, or would look great on display too, on a kitchen shelf. It even has the foil top!
And finally because they are my absolute favourite childhood sweets, a vintage etched sweet jar (£48) just gorgeous!
Do visit the site, and see all of Andy’s other items, Vinegar and Brown paper is definitely one of my favourite I love Mondays to date!
