  1. Ash, I know you love and want handleless drawers in your kitchen. I love the look of them <3

    We've got an overhang (a few cm) on the drawers side of the kitchen and it is extremely handy when collecting the crumbs. However, with our handleless vanity in our ensuite, we are having a minimal overhang so that we are still able to get our fingers in there and open the top drawers. This will mean more drips on the drawers. You might or might not be fussed by this :)


  2. Love your drink dispenser :)

    Alfresco Emporium have a pretty and not overly expensive one if you are interested:


    1. They look great B and should make good companions to my Lulu Drinks Urn...

      Also, not quite a drinks urn, but Donna Hay is selling these gorgeous jars if you are interested (I want to buy a squillion of them!...though I won't...maybe):
