    The ‘purveyors of splendid confectionary’ will be packing the book full of treats such as sticky toffee apples – yum! If this book is as gorgeous as the lovely Hope and Greenwood shop and website, we think it will be one to watch out for! – Ellie

    This is a subtle message to my boyfriend and also a gorgeous new tea towel from Emma Henderson via Hannah Zakari. Check out the detail on this pretty accessory – if you look closely at the photo, you can see some of the items from Emma’s kitchen are included in her design. I love a gorgeous tea towel. It’ll liven up a boring chore and look cute hanging up in your kitchen. I think this one is nice enough to frame as bargain art work!Picture 2
