Nina Invorm

Gauging by the number of sales in her Etsy shop, I don't think Nina Invorm is a blog secret, but I hadn't heard of her until I came across her designs today on Home Shopping Spy.

Nina screenprints onto ceramics and prints, but also 'repurposes' old crockery with new designs.

Oui, that is adorable.

Do you like how I included the print and the milk jug, for diversity and range, when really all I want to post about are the 'new' vintage plates?

I can't help it - here's more:


What about this one? Just the thing to cheer up a plate collection which is verging on granny-style overload? Well, admire it all you like, but it won't be yours as I bought it within about 2 minutes of reading about her.

Also, if you haven't heard about it already, I would highly recommend reading Home Shopping Spy. It is affiliated to Ideal Home magazine, so often it has fantastic finds ahead of the game (winter Toast catalogue anyone?) It's actually a blog I don't like to read too often, lest I fall into complete blog lethargy and re-blog every single thing they write about instead of finding something original myself. So far, total demeanours in the last week, 2 (fully credited of course.)

Fancy repurposing your own plate? See here. Let's just say I will definitely be adding plate decorating to my list of craft activities which sound brilliant but which I will ultimately never get around to doing.

Oh gawd, her stuff is just so beautiful. She's been on my must-post list for months. At one point I was trying to organise an interiors shoot at her house for the magazine I worked on! Have you seen any pics of it? Just amazing. xx
