Based in Glasgow and founded by Krista Blake and Stuart White, Narrative is an “arty collective shop” that utilises the talents of its members to create handmade limited edition goods. Their wares are not only beautifully designed but also charmingly tongue-in-cheek. Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was the clever inspiration for Stuart White’s Drink Me bone china mug and Emma Houlston (remember her from this post?) has obviously taken heed of the old-fashioned advice dished out by pensioners with her Harrow Ladies Luncheon Club Plate Set. Really, in some cases it is probably not a bad idea to have a plate that pictures the stern face of a nana-type reminding you not to put your elbows on the table.

    Wow, I love all of these. So intricately made. I am particularly infatuated with those plates. Beautiful stuff! (again. Thanks Danica! I can’t say your name enough cause I love it so much.)

    oh danica, that stern face of a nana-type is frighteningly like my grandmother -hands up who was raised with proper etiquette?
    I may just buy one …

    @ Gerlin I love the plates too and pretty much everything on their site. By the way, you have a spectacular name too!

    @ Hila Ha – that’s hilarious! I too was brought up with a good sense of etiquette which may explain why I can be so old-fashioned at times :) And yes – do buy one of the plates! I encourage all acts of wanton spending.

    Promise I will not put my elbows on the table anymore.
