.Flocked polystyrene ball necklace I got in New york from Kiosk, was wearing a drab grey dress , this neacklace really did the trick!! The colours are so vibrant, 3 shades of greens, yum!
.I miss your face card which I commissioned from Erin McIntyre, wanted to give it to a freind I haven't seen for ages, but I can't part with it. she does beautiful drawings.
.Yellow canary on a branch ornament, very cheap from a brickabrack sale, but I love it's colour.
.Beautiful 'holy' magazine by Henny van Nistelroy the holes look like shells and appear on the pages in strange positions throughout the magazine, genius.
.Old selotape tin that my grandma had kept art materials in, I love the fact she wrote in her destinctive hand writing what was inside, on everything!
.Vintage twins, with beautiful 2 colour packaging
.Kiehls salve, am addicted to everything kiehls.
Post card from hitherto, which sadly is no longer there, used to be my favourite shop in Glasgow, and was run by Krista Blake who was always so chatty and lovely.
.Look into my eyes faces by Bruno Munari
Small brown wren ornament, which belonged to my grandma- my favorite person :)
.Little book of photos 350 miles of an essex journey , nice pictures of the sea and buildings
.Found record sleeve, your really quite a catch, I like the title and the drawing!
.More Kiehls! very guilty pleasure of mine
and a beautiful hand made tile by Lubna Chowdhary, I wish I could time a whole room in these, they all unique with different .patterns and colours.

That's is, let me know if you need any more info I'll do another one in a little while.

sneak peak from our spring photo shoot

Happy Easter! last year Erin, our fantastic Studio manager, and her partner Rob came round and we painted eggs and made little wigs and hats for them to sit in the meg and mog egg cups! I'll see if I can find a pic to show you later.
I love this shot, so spring like! daffodil tea, maybe we should try it!

Olive is one of my favorite colours! poor little gingerbread man!!

Thank you Laura, and Gareth Hacker for the fantastic photography
I love working with Gareth!

We have more shots which we are going to use in our new catalogue later on this year, but if any press are interested please contact

We sailed away on a winters day.

Okay, instead of me always writing about me me me, I thought I'd share some nice things I've seen recently. Not really work related but I hope some of you will find these inspiring in some way as I have.
The theme for this post is boats, and I'm designing lots of nautical related things now. 
here are some images I find interesting, please excuse the quality- all taken on my phone.

all aboard 
 no martini's allowed, my favorite drink!!

 a cods ear believe it or not
 empty waiting rooms, strangely silently sinister

follow the moon

Printed on cotton in this beautiful peacock colour this cushion is a beautiful spring edition to you home. I love the papercut leaves and the folky feel of it.  I would like to give one of these to one of you, all you have to do is give a couple lines about what you like about spring. ...Winner will be announced in a couple of weeks.
For me it's the lighter evenings which means you can go on bike rides, and having fresh daffodils and flowers in the house . mmmmm
thanks, and happy spring. x

Joy of Living' at Somerset House from 15-21st March

I am proud to be a small part of the 'Joy of Living' at Somerset House from 15-21st March.  'Joy of Living '  is a charity project organised by Max Fraser. Over 100 designers are taking part to support Maggies Cancer Caring Centre. All the exhibits are for sale at the price of £250 each – until you buy one, you don't know who's work it will be.  The aim is to raise £20,000 for the Maggies Cancer Charity, so a very worth while cause.
