A shoe tidy? That's the latest addition to my English vocabulary - as in the language spoken on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean from me. (Here in the U.S., we'd call this a shoe organizer or a shoe bag.)
I love poking around shops from faraway places - and today we go to Cath Kidston, courtesy of Redbook Magazine (and my neighbor who brought me the May 2008 edition, with its 24 stylish space savers).
Peg bags are what we'd call clothespin bags in the U.S. - but the whole idea was new to me. (On the other hand, it wasn't new to my neighbor, so maybe that's just the gap in my knowledge rather than a U.S./U.K. thing.)
Stepping away from Cath Kidston for a minute, this peg bag from Pouch's Shop on Etsy really caught my eye - now that I know to look for peg bags!
Returning to Cath Kidston, carrier bag store was a new phrase for me - what we'd call a grocery bag dispenser, grocery bag holder, or plastic bag keeper (or some such) in the U.S. (Again, there are some lovely dispenser bags over on Etsy.)
And finally, the house sewing basket caught my eye - and all I do in the way of sewing is fix a torn hem and sew on a wayward button.
