Pretty 'n' Practical from DotComGiftShop

One of the perks of blogging, aside from meeting lots of very nice, friendly, funny, warm people virtually and in real life, is being asked to review the odd bits and pieces. It is not often that I accept a request as I only review things I would actually use or buy myself. So, when DotComGiftShop contacted me and advised me that they had featured me on their vintage bloggers list and wondered whether I would like to review an item from their extensive site, I said yes, lickety-split.

I had a wander around the site and after about 5 seconds tweeted about their Mason Cash Bowl-esque measuring cups. There was a debate as to their prettiness, but concerns over their possible fragility. I thought it best to request them for review. I would put them to the test of my general cackhandiness. They were soon winging their way to me. They arrived in a fairly mahoosive box and were very well packaged. They had been shipped in their original container packaging - so if you are ordering them for a gift, you may want to put them in a slightly more presentable box. And, as with all food-touching implements, give them a quick rinse.

But, my oh my, they were just as pretty as the website had shown. Designed in pastel hues on the outside with dainty, but sturdy handles, I knew I would be using them. A lot. Regular spoons and other measuring cups are all very well and good, but I quite like the fanciness and practicality of these. The inside of the cups are nicely glazed with delicate images of stamps, butterflies and the measurement of each cup. If that were not enough, they also stack. And look right nice doing so.

DotcomGiftShop ship to the UK and Europe and I can recommend their service. I have my eye on some of their little milk bottles and wedding bunting for my up coming nuptials (by upcoming I mean over a year away) but I am seriously considering getting some and ferreting them away somewhere. There is a veritable feast of interesting, cute, practical and kitsch bits on there for you to pick from. 

Certainly worth a butchers.
