Ehrman Tapestry Sale Catalogue October 2011

I haven't been doing at all well on this year's project to get rid of some stuff. Unfortunately I've been ill and not feeling like much tidying up - or sitting at my computer. If anything I seem to have accumulated more stuff than ever. However, I'm feeling a bit stronger today, and yesterday (great triumph) I washed the bathroom floor, so let's give it a go.

I tell you what, scanning this document was exhausting. But at least I have got rid of one more thing from my pile of stuff. Yes, I know it's only one sale leaflet but you've got to start somewhere.

And don't forget that Ehrman Tapestry have a great website where you can find their current range.

Ehrman Tapestry Sale Catalogue Spring 2013

Aren't these little bird designs fun? I think I prefer the version with the grey background. Remember you can check out the latest design from Ehrman by looking on their website.

A Little Bit of Chocolate Does You Good: Nestlé Rolo

When was this chocolate bar invented?

Rolos used to be individual chocolates filled with lovely soft gooey toffee and sold in a paper covered tube. Delicious.

I just discovered this bar of chocolate which is basically a bar of not individual chocolates.... stuffed with lovely soft gooey toffee. Yum! I liked this a lot.

Ehrman Tapestry Sale Catalogue Spring 2012

I really love the rhubarb kit shown here. Can't think why I didn't buy it.... except I have a drawer, a large drawer full of kits I haven't begun yet. And quite a few I have begun but have never yet finished.

Exotic Packaging: Crabtree & Evelyn Tea Rose & Glycerine Soap

More Than Yesterday
Less than Tomorrow

For some reason the french text does not mention that this soap was heart-shaped.
I remember it well from 1975. A great big red heart.

A Little Bit of Chocolate Does You Good: Gin & Tonic Truffles

I got a little box of truffles for Christmas. Gin & Tonic flavour. Gin & Tonic? Really?

Really. Only I don't really think they taste of gin & tonic. The outer shell of these truffles is white as you see, and quite thick. The inner truffle is milk chocolate. And as I said, doesn't really taste of gin & tonic. A little bit citrusy perhaps? There are some crunchy crystals of something that may be citrusy. It's hard to tell.

It's a fun idea and quite tasty but I am definitely not convinced on the gin & tonic front.

Ehrman Tapestry Sale Catalogue Summer 2013

Here's another sale catalogue from the wonderful Ehrman tapestry company. Every time I look at these I want to buy practically everything but let's be honest; there are only so many cushions you can fit in one house. And we only have a lavish 2 sofas. If only we had 7 or 8 like some people I know. But then the people with all those sofas don't sit down and make their own tapestry cushions. At least, I'm fairly sure they don't. Too busy going to the opera.
