Poetry...not just for romantics...

No indeed,

We like to think that TS Eliot would have enjoyed using a Lush Designs notebook,

although he managed to write the magnificently unromantic
Love song of J. Alfred Prufrock without one ...

Let us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherized upon a table;
Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets,
The muttering retreats
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels
And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells:
Streets that follow like a tedious argument
Of insidious intent
To lead you to an overwhelming question ...
Oh, do not ask, “What is it?”
Let us go and make our visit.

Take your pick and pluck a lovely little notebook from our range and see if you can start a whole new career as a poet...

This new collection of ceramics and light shades in engraved glass and decorative earthen ware alludes to its Autumnal inspiration of pods and seeds and sturdy but mysterious trees. Of fungal blooms and lichen forms and rich berries on frosty mornings.

SEASON of mists and mellow fruitfulness! 
  Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun; 
Conspiring with him how to load and bless 
  With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run; 
To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees,         5
  And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core; 
    To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells 
  With a sweet kernel; to set budding more, 
And still more, later flowers for the bees, 
Until they think warm days will never cease,  10
  For Summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells.

While you're poking the coals, protect yourself with this Lush Designs Fish apron.  Its got a handy pocket for your fags.

If you've got a little friend helping you perhaps they'll be needing this specially small Lush Designs Lion apron.

Lions and Unicorns

Its never too early to get your children familiar with heraldry and its symbols.  With this in mind we've designed these melamine breakfast sets for youngsters so they can get a handle on this noble tradition...   
 The lion is the symbol of valour, strength and all that gubbins.  This one is 'Statant' (all four feet on the floor) as we fancy folk say.  Grrrr 

 Daaw.  Here's a little one.

 This lion is smiling. Look, its even got smiling eyes. (grrr)

 Unicorns were popularly considered to be WILD beasts and in heraldry were shown in chains.
 Not these little darlings though. Our unicorns are a little bit frisky, but not exactly rampant.
