I have a thing for enamel. It’s serious, not some fleeting interest and it’s been going on for a while now. There are just some things a girl can’t help. So my first Sunday Best post is dedicated to the stuff. These new posts are my little round-ups of favourite camping kit. Maybe you’ll discover some new crushes of your own, or maybe we’ll just validate your secret passion for items of camping gear. Either way, it’s a nice way to start a Sunday in our opinion. And if reading is followed by a quick online-shopping spree … Well, so be it. Things could be worse after all.
I’m loving the two-tier lunch pail (£55) from Objects of Use, pictured above. There’s a campsite my family and I sometimes visit and it runs along a little canal-like river. There’s fishing to be had and afternoons spent clambering over old boats tied to the shore. This would be great for packing little snacks and even bait, and it’s small enough for little ones to carry themselves. Adorable.
If I could figure out how Father Rabbit, a cool-as-cucumber Auckland-based lifestyle store got their hands on this Falconware enamel milkshake tumbler ($NZ16) when I can’t find it anywhere in the UK, I’d be one happy bunny. I want one. Badly.
It was only a matter of time before cutlery found itself dipped in enamel. And these pieces from Cachette are yummy. Finished by hand, so each piece is ever-so-slightly different, there are matching salad servers too, for those so inclined. Prices start at €11.50. To the Wish List with you immediately!!
I recently gave two of these large, lidded mugs (£22) to friends who spend weekends tending their allotment. They’d be brilliant on a camping trip too. Your tea/coffee/soup will be kept warm, and safe from ash from the campfire too! And I couldn’t resist this little candle holder (£12). Is there a better way to light up the loo? Both are from Labour and Wait.
If you’ve visited my site before, you’ll know I love a camping, cooking and eating delicious dishes. So, your orders are to make a hefty curry in this round food canister (€41.50) from Le Repere des Belettes. Pop the lid on. Pack it in the car. Bung it on the campfire. Voila. Dinner. Love. It.
Happy Sunday Campers!
