I am in love with these! I have only just come across these items today, but am head over heels already! Seriously! Have a look at the Inkling Prints etsy shop here, or alternatively their direct blog here..  Each design is carved onto lino and individually hand-printed onto fabric, in the hub of the Inkling studio. Hubba hubba hubba!

Reminds me of my old lino-printing days at collage… ahhhhhhh… good times.. (though mine where NEVER as good as these.. not in my wildest dreams!)

I have given prices below in Pounds Sterling, but please go to the etsy shop to see alternatives, as all items are available for international shipping – hurrah!



I only came across Hannah Turner‘s ceramics recently, but wanted to share them with you ASAP! They are really adorable..and easily collectable (as I don’t know how I could pick just only one of them!). How cute how cute how cute! Prices start from around £28 upwards, depending on your chosen piece… and so have a look at the full range here!


I just wanted to share with you a really gorgeous vintage fashion collector on ebay; one which I can highly recommend for her service, personal style and sheer overall loveliness. Welcome to My Foolish Heart.

I’ve hand-picked a few items below which are currently available, but if any catch your eye, be quick to pay a visit as these beauties may disappear quick! I am absolutely loving the 1960’s sheer bow blouse shown first below…how lovely?!! Yes – definitely worth a regular visit!!!

I added a link to my blog for Atelier Abigail Ahern last year when I first came across her fantastic shop on 137 Upper Street, Islington, London, but foolishly never wrote an actual post! What was I thinking!?  Described perfectly as an “Aladdin’s cave of gorgeousness, bang on trend, gracious and grown up”, it is filled with an abundance of stunning items for the home – from lighting to art, to mirrors, furniture and animal heads. And what’s even better – you can now choose from her eclectic collection from her online shop. Hurrah!

What has really caught my eye, however, are these wonderful lamps below… I officially LOVE . THEM! Prices start at £195 upwards, depending on your favorite piece…but I really really really want one. Really!


Check out Abigail’s blog here too.. to be kept up to date with her latest likes, influences and favorite things!

Who doesn’t like a nice pouf or beanbag, eh? If I was blessed with lots of floor space, I think I’d go a little bit pouf-crazy… Seriously – I would! And these AMAZING beanbags below would definitely be included in my pouf-athon… How cool are these? I can’t work out which one is my favourite… (let me know which yours is?).

Woouf are a Barcelona-based company, offering these fun – and unexpected – bean bags and cushions to the whole world via their excellent online store. I love them!!! Their cushions are damn nice too… Prices for the bean bags start at around 95 euros for the smaller pieces to 235 euros for the bigger ones..and from 45 euros for the cushions..


How brilliant are these artworks? I came across these Vivienne Maun pieces at the Maison et Objet show last week, and really loved them! And on closer inspection of their website, discovered that they had even more – all equally slightly bonkers and brilliant!!!! These chappies can be found on Vivienne Maun’s website here so take a look!

I love animal-busts anyway, but particularly when it’s done in a new, inventive way… I absolutely adore the pink piggy and rather cheeky doberman! Heee heeeee!
