For anyone unsure of what Christmas presents to buy.. I can heartily recommend ToDryFor.com! To Dry For is an online boutique specialising in designer tea towels (set up by a husband and wife team based in Oxford, UK)..and their teatowel collection is fantastic!!! Anyone who knows me (and may be expecting a Christmas present from me) better look away now, as I may spoil Santas’ surprise! But yes – feast your eyes on the following designs… there is sooooooo much choice!

Designers include Rob Ryan, Lush Designs, Darling Clementine, Puntuck, Snowdon Flood, Jay Jay Burridge, Charlotte Farmer, Maria Dahlgren, and LovelyLovely – to mention but a few! (pheweee!) So it’s a really nice way to purchase some of these fantastic artists’ work! Teatowels are priced between £8 – £12 each (and you get free postage when you buy 3 or more!).. so yes… happy Christmas shopping one and all!!!!!! x

I am a MASSIVE fan of A Little Bit Of Art; an online gallery specializing in selling limited edition prints at affordable prices.. Not only do they sell their pieces online, but also at pop-up events, design shows and other temporary events – offering a really nice, diverse collection of artists’ work. Artists include James Brown, Freya Cummings, Ben The Illustrator, Art For Babies, Joe Magee, Gary S. Holt, Hannah Bays, Jonas Ranson, Lucie Sheridan, Simon Tozer and Gato Gateaux – to mention just a few!! Seriously – go check them out NOW!!!

Another artist A Little Bit Of Art features is the fabulous Delphine Lebourgeois. Not only has she a wonderful name (Katy sounds soooo boring in comparison…sigh!) – but her work is equally as exciting… Here are a few pieces i’ve picked out below…

For me, the colours just seem so vibrant and exotic…and the imagery itself feels quite magical..even mysterious. Have a look at Delphine’s website & blog here…and to buy any of this artists’ work as prints, go to the A Little Bit Of Art website where prints are priced from about £150 upwards (as editions of 20). Magnifico!


Sorry for the recent silence everyone! My boyfriend and I are in the middle of trying to buy our new first home together, and it’s proving a bit time-dominating! But I wanted to write a quick post on sofas. Hmmmmm…yes… sofas! Tricky. They’re big. They’re kind of ‘in your face’ a little bit… and i’m unsure as to what my taste is for our new (potential) home..? After being asked by the nice people at DFS to have a look at their range, I thought i’d show you what my faves currently are…and as you can see, I’ve opted more for the chairs! I like chairs. I don’t feel the need to get matching items when it comes to chairs; I like the idea of having random items rather than a full-on matching suite.. And I LOVE footstools… footstools and poufs. Bring it on…
