Ceramic Butter Dish in RedWhat is it about nostalgia that gets us all warm and fuzzy inside? Take the humble milk bottle: this simple glass item – once delivered direct to our door by milk float – was topped with red tinfoil for skimmed milk and blue for full fat.

One thumb imprint and you were in, a glug of cream covering the milk which my mum used to save to make trifles on a Sunday.

Anything that harks back to the ‘good old days’ is popular right now and these ceramic kitchen aids from fellow Brit Claire Loves are sure to be a hit.

Resembling old butter dishes, milk bottles and cartons of cream, Claire has created classic nods to simpler times with winning results.

Cream Carton Jug in Blue (1)

Milk Bottle Vase in Green (800x800)
Using a clever colour palette of white (for milk), cream (for cream), red (for skimmed), green (for semi skimmed) and blue (for full fat), Muddy loves Claire’s work in the kitchen. Cup of tea anyone?
