Win 100 pounds to spend on gorgeous things for your home

January 30, 2012

I think it was William Morris who said buy only what you know to be useful and believe to be beautiful; it’s something I’ve stuck to through renovating three houses. I make sure I only ever buy gorgeous, useful things we’ll want to keep.

That’s why I’ve been spending lots of time perusing Palmers. They stock fabulous homewares by household names including Kirstie Allsopp, Jamie Oliver, Cath Kidston and Joseph Joseph.

And I’m very excited to be giving you the opportunity to win ยฃ100 to spend in this easy competition.

All you have to do is to take a look at their range of homewares and then come back and tell me some of the things you would like to buy if you’re given ยฃ100 to spend, and why.

(NB there is no cash alternative for this prize. Usual The Mum Blog competition rules apply. Closing date is next monday).

I can’t wait to see what you come up with. Good luck!

  • Hazel Wright February 5, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Ooh beautiful things! Well my kitchen is a disaster and I don’t own many things that aren’t faulty so I started by looking there. I think I’d have to have the Breville Polished Steel Jug Kettle because its nice and shiny! And the wok because as I cooked stir fry tonight the handle was wobbling so much I thought it might end up on the floor! The Denby is beautiful, hard to choose! Thanks for the competition!

  • Lynn Blakeman February 5, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    There are so many lovely things to choose from but my bedding has seen better days so would love the Zandra Rhodes Alma Duvert set in Kingsize. I have a lovely Chihuahua so the Fuzzy Nation Plaidberry chihuahua wristlet would be lovely. I have also fallen in love with the Fuzzy Nation Puff Baby Pug bag which means I have overspent by ยฃ15, I take it I am allowed to pay the extra?

  • olivia B February 5, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    What a wonderful prize! Palmers have some really gorgeous items on their site, it would be difficult to decide. However our bed linen is old now and looking really tired and tatty, so i think I would choose a set first and foremost. I particularly love Kirstie Allsops collection, and would go for the ‘Camille’ duvet set, it is gorgeous and my partner would like it too i’m sure. I would spend the rest on accessories, we need to replace our lounge cushions as the stuffing has completely flattened and they dont match our current colour scheme, just never got round to buying new ones as never a priority! x

  • AIMEE SWIFT February 5, 2012 at 4:46 pm

    Having just got married there’s lots I need so to start I’d buy some champagne flutes so we could toast ourselves, then the next room on our DIY list is the kitchen so would treat it to some gorgeous accessories from Joseph Joseph, I especially love the circular work top savers and The index chopping board. Then if I’d any money left I’d buy the pig money box to save for more items on the website.

  • Hannah Moody February 5, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    I would buy :

    1. Le Chateau Gingham Stripe Duvet Set ยฃ55

    I’ll be moving into a new house with my boyfriend in a few months time, and since we are both moving out of our parents houses, we will have to buy literally one of everything possible!

    I would buy:
    ~ 4 of each of the Jamie Oliver Fluted mugs (mix up the cupboard a little),
    ~ 2 of the Denby Azure 4 piece coaster set, 2 of the Denby Azure tablemat sets,
    ~ the 12 piece steak knife and fork set (myself and boyfriend, as well as a few friends of ours, often eat steak together. it would be nice to do our own and have the cutlery for it too.)
    ~ finally the Viners 18 piece Macey cutlery set.

    With the rest of the money, i’d contemplate either starting on stuff for another room, or possibly some extra kitchen things ๐Ÿ™‚

  • FionaLynne Edwards February 5, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Wow – so much choice at Palmers, it’s really hard! I think I would start off with the V&A Melrose Duvet Cover set – I’ve just painted my room a light blue and this would look gorgeous in it. I would also choose the Showerdrape Rossi Mirror for my bathroom as our old mirror is a disgusting plastic one.

  • sarah bailey February 5, 2012 at 3:28 pm

    Also some of the Stolzle Ultra Wine Glasses, again a bargain price.
    Hard to choose, lots of FAB STUFF…

  • Lisa Buckley February 5, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    I’d have to invest in some new bed linen, probably Zandra Rhodes Alma, which look pretty but practical (and very good value)…as one of our new kittens keeps piddling on us. I’d also need to buy some new Denby mugs….for the cups of tea required after handwashing super kingsize and double duvets.

  • Caroline Cummins February 5, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    I would choose –

    1) the Judge Stunning Stockpot – ยฃ29.99 because they are so bright and colourful and would make cooking a little more enjoyable, they would also work really well as a serving pot, straight from the cooker to the table!

    2) Opulence peacock duvet cover set – ยฃ35. This looks really snuggly but also crisp, I love light coloured bedding, I think it makes the room feel brighter and cleaner.

    3) The quackers bathing ducks count duckula – ยฃ5.99 because my little boy is looking at your website and says its brilliant!

    4) Viners plaza 18 piece cutlery set. This looks very stylish and would look great for a dinner party or even christmas day!

  • DENISE CROSS February 5, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    I’d go for some new cake tins and some pots and pans – though it would take me ages to make my final decision

  • julie thomas February 5, 2012 at 11:44 am

    I would be torn between some gorgeous new bedding that I desperately need and some fabulous new items for the kitchen. Love the country/vintage look and I’m trying to introduce more items like this into my home.

  • claire woods February 5, 2012 at 9:30 am

    1. Dorma 180 Poly Cotton Plain Dye Flat Sheet because I have noticed today that my son’s has a huge tear in it.

    2.Cupcake-bake-and-decorate-set because my son loves baking cakes & this would keep him busy and quiet for a while!

    3. Stellar Stainless Steel Hanging Rack & Hooks – because I need a hook to hang my teatowel on to make it tidy as it’s just folded up at the moment.

    4. Fuzzy Nation King Soiu De Soie Pug Wristlet – for my hairdresser/friend Kirstie as she’s a mad pug lady and even runs Pugs in the park where they all meet up – owners and pug dogs.

    9. Colony Church Candle – candles always come in handy for special occasions or power cuts!

  • Nicola Seary February 5, 2012 at 2:09 am

    I’d treat myself to a nice new Duvet set such as the Kingsley Palm Springs set in King Size.I’d also buy some of the Jamie Oliver mini Cheeky mugs for my children and if there’s any money left a nice cushion for me to snuggle up with.

  • Honora Livesey February 5, 2012 at 1:24 am

    Bearing in mind it is -4 here tonight and my central heating has been broken for weeks I would choose a nice new snuggly 10.5 Fogarty Duvet.

    I would also treat my Mum,who does so much for me as I don’t have the best of health, to that beautiful Aynsley Meadow 12 Piece Tea Cup & Saucer Set. There’s nothing she loves more than a good cup of tea and as she relaxes she’ll realise how much her efforts are appreciated.

    Fab blob competition <3

  • ali mckenzie February 4, 2012 at 11:03 pm

  • sue willshee February 4, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    gosh, so difficult to choose because everything is fab! I can’t decide between the Judge Stunning Stockpots (I do like to make sopu and these really are stunning!) or possibly the Trunkisaurus Rex, or Rox, but then I do also like the Gruffalo Trunki..or possibly the Kirtstie Allsopp Cordelia Cushions…oh decisions, decisions!

  • Tracy February 4, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    I’d have to kit my kitchen out in all things Jamie Oliver and Cath Kidston!

  • Joanna Moran February 4, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    I would put the money towards buying a dream coffee machine. Then I can enjoy a nice sit down with a cup of coffee once the housework is done and the kids are at school x : )))

  • jodie wren February 4, 2012 at 6:01 pm

    I love a bit of Palmers in old Yarco.
    I would head straight to the bedroom department as ours needs a bit of updating with some new bedding (the kingsly harlem stripey duvet set would add some brightness), and a new duvet and some new pillows wouldnt go amiss either.

  • Angie Hoggett February 4, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    I’d buy a new dinner set, there are some gorgeous Denby sets I could buy. I really need a new set as all mine are starting to crack I’ve had them for years!!

  • Tracey Belcher February 4, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    To be truthful I would let my daughter choose as she is setting up her first home from scratch so needs so much! A nice saucepan set would be top of her list such as the Judge one and also kitchen utensils x

  • Emma Gallagher February 4, 2012 at 3:29 pm

    I love Joseph Joseph so I would definitely be looking to upgrade my 1990’s kitchen gadgets for some funky and modern ones!. I love Alessi too and would love one of their corkscrews.

  • Emma Davis February 4, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    I just love the Le Chateau Chrysanthemum quilted bedspread! It could keep me warm and snuggley on these cold winter nights. I would also love any bakeware product as I am a keen baker. Maybe I could have a cake while I’m all tucked up!

  • Christine Carroll February 4, 2012 at 10:38 am

    Oh what a lovely competition!
    So pleased to have found this Company!
    I would have to buy the Swan full size cup-cake maker, the Prestige spring-form baking tin and the square cake tin with loose base. I am doing a cake decorating course at the moment and love baking so these would all be useful and I might have to have the wire cup-cake stand as well!
    Thank you!

  • emma kinsey February 4, 2012 at 7:37 am

    i would love pots and pans and disney mugs and little princess mugs for my 3 girls i also love the dog bags and purses. What a lovely website

  • phyllis ellett February 4, 2012 at 6:41 am

    The lovely Palmers is 10 minutes away from where we live.

    Would spend the money on loads of kitchen utensils as they are of great quality, so chuck out all the old and replace with lovely new.

  • Laura Carroll February 4, 2012 at 3:45 am

    Wow, what a gorgeous website! I’m tempted by everything on it!

    I think I would use the voucher to buy some beautiful new cushions to brighten up my very drab living room! There are so many pretty ones but I would probably choose the Monsoon Papillon Multi Sequinned Cushion, the Malini Bianca Cushion and the Kirstie Allsopp Ric Rac Cushion! Then I’d have money left for a sexy Kylie Minogue Kavala Cushion for the bedroom too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the amazing competition!

  • Lesley Bain February 4, 2012 at 1:21 am

    Oooh there’s a surprise….I’ve overspent on my budget already!
    If I was lucky enough to win ยฃ100 to spend on this lovely site I would most definitely want the Kylie Minogue at Home Grace Throw.
    After having four children of my own, and now being the very proud grandmother of my gorgeous wee granddaughter my sofa has taken so much icky abuse that I am embarassed by the stained mess of it. Sadly I can’t afford a new one, but if I could cover it with this gorgeous throw it would completely transform my livingroom….:)

  • Tina Mansfield February 3, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    There is far too much on this site and I might need more than ยฃ100 but I would have to start with snuggle touch wave throw for my bed, and then maybe a cusion and a duvet set, and finall I need a new mug for work, and the arista cats one is so sweet might just have to treat myself… Thanks for this comp its great.

  • Laura Pritchard February 3, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    I’d choose the V&A Butterfly Rose Duvet Cover Set as we still currently live like students with our reversible brown/beige Argo cheap bedding! Would love to have a girly ‘boudoir’ more becoming of a 30 year old mum!

  • Lewis H February 3, 2012 at 8:05 pm

    I’d spend it on everything from utensils to cushions and curtains. I’ve just bought my first house and I need one of everything!

  • Claire Toplis February 3, 2012 at 7:07 pm

    I would love some Jospeh Jospeh bowls to replace my mismatch of bowls I own !

  • Paula Evans February 3, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    I would get a Judge cool casserole in purple as we have none and use a pan with tinfoil over it at the moment ๐Ÿ™‚ .
    A judge stunning stockpot in purple as our stockpot the lid has broken,this one id fab love the colour and would match the casserole colour.
    The Judge stainless steel 4 piece saucepan set as we only have a frying pan and one large saucepan,

    Fabulous competition would love to win,fingers crossed


  • Nell Dixon February 3, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    I desperately need some new saucepans and those Judge ones look lovely – like the draining lips.

  • Pauline Mayes February 3, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    A lovely prize, making it a difficult choice. I have a fairly new home with a blue bedroom, so a Richard Inglis duvet cover set and a lovely warm Fine Bedding Co. goose and feather down duvet to keep me warm.

  • Alison February 3, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    I need cake tins as mine leak so I would go mad and get loads and then do some baking

  • Tony Weston February 3, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    I would like to brighten up my kitchen with a range of Joseph Joseph products

  • Claire Kemp February 3, 2012 at 11:35 am

    I LOVE the Sandersons dandelion clocks duvet cover as I’m OBSESSED with this print…even had a wallpaper sample of it that I’ve kept to drool over even though we couldn’t afford to buy it! Also it would match my bedroom paintwork.
    Failing that anything Kath Kidston floats my boat…oooh I could replace all my tatty mugs with her gorgeousness. :O)

  • Donna Gilligan February 3, 2012 at 10:27 am

    How did I not know about this shop?! Love the miniamo baking stuff, and I’d have a new bed set too.

  • Fran Light February 2, 2012 at 9:11 pm

    I’d love the Judge Electric Mini Chopper (a real time saver, and a ‘hassle eliminator’!), the Judge Stockpot in purple (my favourite colour!), the Alisons Animals Countryside 6 piece Coaster Set (so cute!) and the double Zandra Rhodes Keira Duvet Cover Set (because it is very similar to the difficult-to-match flowery wallpaper on one wall in my bedroom) … that was fun, I love compiling wish lists!

  • catherine @mummylion February 2, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    well my kettle looks like it might not last that much longer so i’d replace that, and ive always fancied a cupcake maker, not having an oven at home. i could do with some curtains but you cant tell if they are lined or not from the website or how warm they will be.

  • Sarah Cooper February 2, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    I think I would treat myself to the Sanderson Dandelion Clocks Duvet Cover if I were lucky enough to win. It would give me an excuse to rejuvenate my currently rather dreary bedroom and give it a cooling and calming feel, I can just imagine myself being whisked away to a cool field whilst blowing dandelions in to the wind looking at this bedding.

    Thanks for introducing me to Palmers, some lovely items there.

  • Greig spencer February 2, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    cath kidson mugs and some bedding , waht a great comp lol

  • Anna Aird February 2, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    I’d buy some lovely curtains for my bedroom – I meant to get some when we moved house but ran out of money before I got that far! @annieanna24

  • Roxi F February 2, 2012 at 7:24 pm

    I’d probably buy something like a luxurious duvet set or something really warm feeling for the bedroom ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Michelle February 2, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    Oh wow, I’d probably get the whole miniamo range for Chloe as it’s so cute and try to squeeze in something from the Joseph Joseph range of goodies for me!


  • Tracey Ryder February 2, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    oh some lovely bedding

  • Melanie McNair February 2, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    I’d buy the Kirstie Allsopp Camille Duvet cover as it’s so pretty & would look really great in my bedroom. I’d also treat my hubby to the JML snuggie blanket

  • Jane Barrett February 2, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    I would buy some new bath towels, nothing like the feeling of new towels and I would buy some bathtime buddies for my kids.

  • Heather Haigh February 2, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    I would go for some bath linen, there are some lovely mats and towels.

  • Melissa Wash February 2, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    Some Malini Allegra Ruffle cushions for my sofa and a nice warm throw for my bed! x

  • stephanie parfey February 2, 2012 at 11:24 am

    Awesome give-away.
    If I was lucky enough to win I would buy my girls some gorgeous goodies to go in their newly decorated shabby chic style room starting with a couple of gorgeous Ric Rac cushions xx

  • M williams February 2, 2012 at 9:17 am

    Hi A lovely competition. I would love a new bed set so one by Kirsty Alsop or this one by Kylie Minogue would be fab!

    Great prices too!

  • Sharon Griffin February 2, 2012 at 9:17 am

    i love the kirsty allsopp mallory cushions because they are so cute and colourful and i adore dogs ??

  • Kirsty Fox February 1, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    There are so many nice things, but I would like the Janet Reger Alcina Duvet Cover ยฃ38, and I would like 3 of the Kirstie Allsopp Lydia Cushions ยฃ20 each. Great website!

  • Stacey Woods February 1, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    I’d go nuts in the Make and Bake section! I’d buy a good quality icing set as I’m sick of cheapo icing bags that break and nozzles that get clogged.

    And I love the cupcake maker and jam-making supplies. I’m not kidding I could spend ages browsing and coveting all the kitchen goods!!

  • Super Amazing Mum February 1, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Sorry, you can contact me @superamazingmum on twitter!

  • Super Amazing Mum February 1, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    oooh, just spent ages virtually spending!

    I would go for the opulence peacock duvet cover set with some V+A cushions and some new Cath Kidston mugs!

    Fab prize x

  • Sue Warr February 1, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    I’d really like some new bedding, I need some pots and pans, and I could do with some new crockery! Why do I deserve to win?? Well, I work hard, I was 49 on Christmas Day and I dip out on at least one set of presents from everyone I know as a result of this…….give me a treat!!!

  • Jenny February 1, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    If I won I would take the opportunity to update our old bathroom towels. I love the look of the Sanderson Dandelion Clocks Printed Towels ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Benjamin Andrews February 1, 2012 at 4:28 pm

    I know that my girlfriend would love the Kirsty Allsop Miranda Throw! If I won I think I would treat her for valentines day to say thank you for being so lovely ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Daisy Bryan February 1, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    We are about to redecorate our bathroom and I would love to get some new bathroom accessories and a new towel set. I love the Sanderson Dandelion Clocks Printed Towels, so stylish! I would absolutely love to win!!

  • emma howard February 1, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    Difficult choice but I think I would treat myself to a new duvet cover set as the couple I have now are so old

  • Melissa Hall February 1, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    What a fabulous prize, I would be spoiled for choice!
    I think I would buy some jam making equipment, as I have always been keen to give that a bash!

  • paula Burnside February 1, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    I would love a new duvet cover for my bed and the diamante ducks are Fab!

  • Caroline Hammond February 1, 2012 at 11:39 am

    oh wow, it’s so hard to choose…i like loads of stuff from the site. I would have to go for some new bedding firstly,can’t choose what 1 because i luuuurve all of them so any one of them would be great. secondly some new kitchen gadgets. I’ve been slacking lately in the kitchen department but would love to get back into it and my 3 eldest boys love helping out in the kitchen. We had our 4th son 6 weeks ago so i haven’t had as much time with them lately….this would be great to give me that push i need and have the boys helping out while daddy looks after the bubba x

  • Maya Russell February 1, 2012 at 10:14 am

    1. Alisons Animals Lap Tray – Last Tree Before Town. This would give me a few chuckles as I had breakfast in bed.

    2. Stellar Soft Touch Nut Cracker – it’s cracking!

    3. Jamie Oliver Cheeky Coaster – Super Mum – need I say more?

    And there are lots more items I think are gorgeous!

  • Kelly Wiffin February 1, 2012 at 9:11 am

    I would love to get some baking equipment, I hardly have any. I would like to get some childrens baking equipment so my daughter can help out too.

    I would have to get my daughter a Trunki too.

    Some wine glasses would be nice, but so would a bathroom cabinet.

    I think I would take a week to decide what to buy!

  • Julie February 1, 2012 at 8:18 am

    What a great prize, and I honestly think I’d struggle to limit myself… although what I really need right now is some bathroom storage, so might go for one of the mirror cabinets. That wouldn’t really leave me much change, but I’d have to see whether I could squeeze a funky towel out of it too!

  • Claire Smith February 1, 2012 at 6:53 am

    I love Joseph Joseph kitchenware fab designs and really colorful so I think I would be investing in some of their range

  • Lucy Zelazowski February 1, 2012 at 12:53 am

    Stellar Carousel So handy saves space and looks pretty.
    I also like the Aynsley Meadow service plates and matching Oval Platter
    I’m moving soon! this would make my new place start to feel homely.

    I love the layout of the website. Great prices for wonderful branded goods!

  • Hazel Christopher February 1, 2012 at 12:20 am

    Well I weighed myself today for the first time since I had my little boy (18months ago), I thought I’d lost all my baby weight so was really disappointed to find I still have 1/2stone to shift to get to pre-pregnancy weight. So I would treat myself to some lovely new kitchen gadgets to help encourage me to do really get back into good healthy home cooking (lack of sleep since having baby has meant I’ve been slacking slightly in the kitchen department).

    Thank you for the competition.

  • Sally Smith January 31, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    it would have to be bedding – probably a new duvet – we really need one!

  • Elizabeth Smith January 31, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Oh blimey, where do I start? Well I’ve been saving my pennies for a new kitchen (well, new to me) and its actually going to happen in a fortnight!! So I’d splash out on some accessories. Number one would be Stellar stainless steel Hanging Rack and Hooks as I couldn’t stretch to all the wall cupboards I want and these would be great for storage. Next would be a Joseph Joseph Icons worktop savers because they fulfil a function and make me smile. And talking about making me smile, I think Alisons Animals Standard Tray ‘Last tree before town” is very apt for a household with three beloved mutts.

  • Gillian Holmes January 31, 2012 at 10:39 pm

    I would love to own the Breville Polished Steel Jug Kettle because mine is on the blink and the Sanderson Dandelion Clocks Embroidered Towel simply because I like them.


  • dean parker January 31, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    Definately treat myself to some new bed linen ours is ancient and so tatty its the kids of thing I can never afford to buy so this would be luxury!

  • Yvonne Parsons January 31, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    i would love to spend mine on kirsty alsopp bedding

  • catherine warburton January 31, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    I would love to have the kirsty allsopp cushions and the V&A kashama throw to brighten up my old but serviceable furniture i deserve them because I’ve been through a lot at the end of last year and this would be a positive start to this year.

  • Lynn Ede January 31, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    I’d like to buy 3 x slow cookers and 3 x Dead Handsome mugs. For my three sons, all post uni and thinking of starting out on their own ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Carolina J. January 31, 2012 at 5:40 pm

    Cath Kidston Antique Rose Bouquet Duvet Cover ยฃ50
    2 Cath Kidston Antique Rose Bouquet Pillowcase ยฃ28
    Fine Bedding Company 7 Tog Spundown Childs Cot Bed Set ยฃ40

    I want them all!

  • Samantha Heap January 31, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    I would LOVE one of the snuggle touch wave throws! I really need a new throw, and all this cold weather and snow has made me want one even more!

  • Daisybeebee January 31, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    Wow , such a wonderful choice.!! I think it would have to be a couple of Kirstie Allsop cushions for my new bedroom and more baking goodies.

  • Gemma Barfield January 31, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    I would definitely spend the majority of it on the Kirsty Allsopp range, some beautiful furnishings. And also the Kylie duvets are gorgeous too! If I had anything left after Mekong my house all cozy and pretty, then I would stock up on baking goods ๐Ÿ˜€

  • tracey horrex January 31, 2012 at 12:32 pm

    this is a great store been there several times. if i won i would have to buy a le chateau patchwork quilt.

  • michelle beatty January 31, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    have to be some dinnerware – had a clearout and threw everything away – then realised that if we have all the family round for dinner don’t have enough stuff left :O(

  • Penny Mitchell January 31, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    What a great competition! I am in the process of slowly doing up our bedroom in silver grey and white so Kylie Minogue’s silver Kiana cushions really caught my eye.

  • Patricia Owen January 31, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    I would cheer up my home with
    new bright comfy cushions like This Morning

  • Chris Williams January 31, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    I would be spoilt for choice over what to buy but I would have fun selecting

  • David Percival January 31, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    It would have to pots and pans and utensils for the kitchen, because the one’s I have really could do with replacing.

  • Victoria Ashley January 31, 2012 at 11:57 am

    I love to buysome Cath Kidston cookware for my kitchen.

  • emma Cella January 31, 2012 at 11:55 am

    there is two many lovely item’s to choose from but i would have to say the Horrockses sophia duvet cover really lovely

  • Emily McMillan January 31, 2012 at 11:53 am

    Wow! Lovely site, I was surprised what good value it is too, I was expecting it to be really expensive.

    I’ve wanted on of these Joseph Joseph chopping board sets for ages… stylish and super practical so I’d definitely go for that. Then replace my value kettle with a stylish one…

    …and finally a Dandelion Printed towel for my downstairs loo! Well this is the room most visitors see isn’t it?!

  • Erica Price January 31, 2012 at 11:40 am

    Very difficult as spoilt for choice. I think though to replace the oil stained covers that we have now (cat and previous neighbour’s old banger van).

  • Belinda Matthews January 31, 2012 at 11:19 am

    I would most probably buy some new pillows as mine have died,

  • Kara Guppy January 31, 2012 at 11:16 am

    I could spend far more than ยฃ100, but I have my heart set on the Judge Cool Stockpot and Casserole Pot, plus the Aynsley Daisy Chain Tablewear (might have to keep that for best though as my kids have a habit of breaking my plates!)

  • Sam January 31, 2012 at 11:14 am

    I must admit I headed *straight* for the Kitchen section as I’m a sucker for new cooking equipment! I’ve been hankering after some Joseph Joseph bits for ages and would choose the Index Chopping Boards, 8 Piece Multicolour Nest and that very patriotic Berry Union Jack Worktop Saver ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Mummy Fever January 31, 2012 at 11:01 am

    wow wow wow – lovely stuff , would start off with a trunki purse and holster for each of my little ones then would put the rest towards some nice new bedding for my bed – @MummyFever

  • Katriona Murphy January 31, 2012 at 10:42 am

    Fine Bedding Company 13.5 tog goose feather and down duvet. Id love this as we need a new duvet. My partner went out and bought us a new one last week he came back all delighted with himself that he bought the new duvet. When i took it out to put it on the bed as the old one is threadbare i found he had bught a 7.5 tog. Now dont get me wrong its a nice clean not ripped duvet but the weather is freezing!! He thought a duvet was a duvet he hadnt and stil doesnt get what im talking about when i said it was only 7.5 tog.

  • Susan Reid January 31, 2012 at 10:41 am

    I would order a couple of Le Chateau Gingham Stripe Duvet Sets for the kids beds -bright & fresh for spring!

  • Joanna Krakowiak January 31, 2012 at 10:23 am

    I would definitely buy the Bedeck Rosetta curtains for my bedroom which is in need of a makeover…and I’d still have ยฃ10 left over to put towards the matching bedspread! <3

  • Rhoda January 31, 2012 at 10:16 am

    Wow, what a fabulous competition!

    I’d go for the Aynsley Camille Cake Stand, it’s gorgeous and perfect for pretending to be posh! LOL.

    I’d also choose a couple of This Morning by CL Home Natural Knit Cushions. Would love these!


  • Mama Syder January 30, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Lovely Competition! With ยฃ100 I’d treat my Daughter to some new bedding…duvet cover and new curtains @mamamakes

  • Elaine Livingstone January 30, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    a jam pan, baking tins, kitchen scales and a pan or 3 please for me….and why you ask….because I love making jam, and I could use some new items for my kitchen

  • Belinda Nicholls January 30, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    What a great idea for a comp. Great website. With ยฃ100 I’d spend it on that lovely bedding. Sheets, covers, throws and cushions. My bedroom needs a revamp urgently.

  • Mummy Matters January 30, 2012 at 9:41 pm

    Oooh I love the Janet Reger Ellie Duvet Cover Set, I’d like to create a haven for Hubby and I to retire to in an evening ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Gorgeous site, I think I could happily deck out my whole house from here!

  • Carolin January 30, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    I absolutely love the Kirstie Allsopp Home Sweet Home Cushion and would also buy some new cake tins. It’s one of my New Year’s resolutions to get a bit more creative in the kitchen

    @caro_mad x

  • Mari January 30, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    Crockery for serving desserts, or bedroom quilt covers or mirrors for the bathroom or …I could spend a fortune in there!

  • Viv Smith January 30, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    What a lovely website! I actually would need more than ยฃ100 to spend! But, a few things stood out.
    The cabled throw. Although I can knit, I just don’t think I have the patience to take on such a big project even though I’d absolutely love a cabled throw for snuggling under.

    This Simplicity 4 piece oval serving set. So much neater and less cluttered than a variety of different dishes that don’t fit together.

    I’d also love a variety of baking tins etc, including the Square cake tin as I only have a round one!

    Thanks for running such a great competition ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Make do mum January 30, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    I’d love the Joseph Joseph nesting bowls, I’ve had my eye on those for a while!

  • Kirsty January 30, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    I would get bedding, like the Le Chateau Gingham Stripe Duvet Set. I love it.

  • Mum in Meltdown January 30, 2012 at 8:38 pm

    Love this comp- sheer indulgence!! I would definitely go for the Aynsley Meadow dinner set and the Joseph Joseph Berry Union Jack work top saver!! Love the single egg poacher too…….far too may to chose from ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Alice Baillie January 30, 2012 at 8:08 pm

    Ohhhh I love this site! So much I could buy… BUT I think I would add to our Joseph Joseph Kitchen collection because it’s amazing!…. that and maybe a few cushions… they have lovely lovely cushions! Great Comp!!!

  • Insomniac Mummy January 30, 2012 at 7:52 pm

    I’d definitely buy myself the Jamie Oliver ‘Bossy Boots’ mug, for work. I have a bit of a reputation, not sure why *cough*….

    After that, I’d probably indulge my obsession with all things cakey bun, and raid the kitchen section!


  • SOPHIE January 30, 2012 at 7:44 pm

    Ooooooooooooooo definitely bedlinen for the whole family.the sort of thing you always mean to buy but never get round too!! That’s not to say that my family sleep in flea infested beds, just that we never treat ourselves to new linen!!! We are clean, promise!!!

  • Lucy SP January 30, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Fab site, so many lovely, cool things. But if I am lucky enough to win this prize, I’d spend the money on some new, crisp, clean bedding! And the reason – simple……Since becoming a new mum a year ago, my lovely duvet covers & pillow cases have been puked on, widdled on by my gorgeous girl (why does she always wee when I take her nappy off… Yet I never learn & use the changing mat which is sitting by the bed collecting dust!) & she regularly spills her baby milk on the bedding! I promise to look after any new bedding accordingly & not let it be used as a tissue, wet wipe or dishcloth!

  • Nickie January 30, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    oohh I’d love a new throw for the bed and then maybe a new bathroom mirrow.

  • Aga Girls January 30, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    This is my kind of competition any excuse to procrastinate by window shopping. I had never heard of this company but they have some loverly things. I must admit that when it comes to kitchen goods I would rather have few better quality items. So my shopping list is not very long but full of expensive items.

    I am right handed and currently we only own a left handed potato peeler. Which let me tell you is incredibly irritating not to mention inefficient.

    Secondly I would like the jam thermometer I have recently discovered whoopie pies but according to the hummingbird book you must fill them with marshmallow icing made with fluff. But this is not cheap or easy to get hold of. The only alternative is a recipe which includes bring the mixture to a soft boil, hence the pressing desire for a thermometer.

    My third and most expensive request would be for a pressure cooker. I am wary of buying a cheap pressure as I worry it could go disasterously wrong. I learned to cook on an Aga which means lots of stews and the like cook for a long time at a slow temperature. But I can’t help feeling that burning gas for three hours defeats the purpose of eating cheap cuts of meat. I have recently read on a number of blogs and watch heston how seems to assure me that the answer to my problem would be a pressure cooker.

    Lastly a set of wine glasses the only thing I am a real snob is are glasses, lets face it I can only afford cheap wine but somehow it tastes better out of a nice glass.

  • simone January 30, 2012 at 7:12 pm

    With 100 to spend I’d treat my beds to vintage feel duvet sets. I particularly like the Richard Inglis Enchantement and the pretty V&A ranges. I’d buy kingsize as I am using a large quilt. I’m hoping to restore an old iron bed so these would look perfect.
