Jugs: surely a girl's best friend. Useful for filling with milk, water, cocktails. And perfect for prettying up your home when filled with flowers. My living room is looking a whole lot more colourful at the moment with some bright tulips filling an enamel vintage number and some gorgeous yellow roses nestling in a little owl jug.
And jugs can be a cheap thrill too. There are always lots available in vintage stores, while the high street has some great designs too at the moment. Lovely jug-ly.
Here's one of those great examples from the high street, the Rombo jug from Zara Home. It's made from glass and costs £12.99. Just looking at that colour makes me think of nice fruity cocktails. You can also get it in blue.
If you liked the yellow pastel milk jug we showed you a couple of weeks back, how about investing in its colourful vintage cousin from The OK Corral? For £7, it's sunshine in the form of a jug.
Lisa Stickley's doing some great things as part of her range for Debenhams. One of my favourites is this 50s-esque posie jug. It's virtually asking to be filled with a bunch of flowers. To help its cause, it's currently in the sale for £16.
Cath Kidston stores frighten me a bit. But look some of the items away from the hoards of women clutching her floral bags and with a glazed look in their eyes and they're really quite nice. Like this acrylic jug, for example. Perfect for picnics and only £15.
