Enamelware in pretty pastels
I saw a pretty collection of pastel-coloured enamelware in a house I viewed recently. I am not putting in an offer on the house and feel too embarrassed to ask the owners where they bought them.

I have been told to use a good beeswax furniture polish that has turpentine in it. Where can I source this?
Turpentine makes an effective base for polish as it rehydrates and feeds the grain and helps the wax to penetrate the wood. The Still Room Company specialises in household products made from natural materials and has a beeswax polish called Apis Wood Food. Call 01886 887760.
