My imagination is limited. This I must confess to you today. Though I spend my days dreaming up puttery treats both for my own pleasure and yours, a quick browse around Pinterest frequently proves that there are creative minds far quicker than mine and so many enviable puttery treats for the taking my whole head ends up in a swirl…

And so today, as promised sometime in 2012, (but as usual operating by my own skewiff timetable) I hereby bring you the first of a new feature: a collection of Pins curated by me: the very sort of puttery treats I have been regaling you with for years, carefully selected for a variety of gorgeous little to-do’s to add pretty slendour to your days and cozy comfort to your evenings…
