sweet as ~ a new blog for me to savour

I think I was pointed in the direction of Sweet Paul when reading about his new on-line magazine at stylist Deborah McLean's fantastic blog Busy Being Fabulous.
I'm loving this magazine full of beautiful pictures (Paul describes himself as a food and prop stylist as well as crafter...and of course now an author!), great recipes, interviews, craft, wine tips and a few handy hints on entertaining. He's even got stuff for pets...maybe I can loan him the vampire slayer...permanently! I am I think, a bit besotted by his cleverness. Here's a taste of the Spring edition...
Paul also has a blog that you can find here. I'm dying to try the napkins he made by photocopying some blue and white china and transferring the image on to the fabric using some fancy transfer paper. Now that's ingenious!
Someone...anyone... please tell me what's not to love about this fella and his stuff. Apart from the fact that the seasons are all arse about and it's autumn in my part of the world!! Oh, and you can't hold it in your hot little hands (but that's just me and my magazine addiction talking).
all images from the Sweet Paul magazine or blog (links above)


  1. So glad you posted about this - I'd seen it mentioned somewhere but hadn't gotten around to checking it out yet. Now that you've reminded me, I'll do just that today. Love those spiffy napkins! K xx

  2. Funny that you blogged about this today. I read the entire magazine online last night. I think I saw it on your FB. Some of the recipes look really good and easy. I had to laugh at your comment about the seasons are all arse about. I'm finding it funny reading about how it is getting cold in your neck of the woods and we are just turning the furnaces off and getting the patio furniture out! Pots are all ready for flowers. Have a great week. Mary

  3. Fabulous. I know it's all about the food but how gorgeous do those vases look? Also, I'm loving the napkin idea as well. Brilliant!

  4. This looks fabulous - am off to check out those links - I love those vases!! x

  5. haven't heard of either of those .. so I have now put them on my 'must-check-these-out-when-i-have-finished-my-work' list .. or perhaps I could just quickly look now ???

  6. Thanks for the tip - love the look of his blog. As winter comes it feels like time to get all foody again! A x

  7. Thanks so much for the blog! Those napkins are fabulous! I will be following him. Thanks, darling.

  8. Ooh, thanks for this post Kerry. I'm off to check the links. Stunning photography.

  9. Oh I can't wait to check it all out. I love the dog with a bikky on his head. Appeals to me!

  10. Hi Kerry,
    I've never heard of Paul Lowes!!!! I can hear sharp intakes of breaths, all over blogland !! I think that, because we have so many chefs over here, we don't get to see many chefs from other countries. Well, his recipes look wonderful and I will have to search him out. I've been to his blog. It's a lovely place for some recipes and other stuff by the looks of it.
    Thanks for enlightening me ! XXXX

  11. you are making me so hungry. it is 7pm here and I am starving. trying to catch up first with my favourite blogs after a crazy busy day... and (sigh) another book for the wishlist. I should go live in a library xoxo

  12. Ahem - I'm sneaking in after Jackie to say I haven't heard of him either! love it though...

  13. I love this too! The photography is amazing!

  14. Wow! I've never heard of him, but I'm so excited that you told us about his magazine and his blog! I'm headed over there in a few minutes. Thanks.

    That food looks AMAZING - especially those ricotta pancakes -- yummy.
