I really really want the Carpenter Dungarees.

Children’s Book Week

I couldn’t let it go past without mentioning that it’s Children’s Book Week this week. For me it’s pretty much always Children’s Book Week, to the extent that last week I thought I should probably read a grown up book, you know, to fit in with cohort, but upon remembering it was the best week of the year I have rapidly and far too happily swapped my copy of The Great Gatsby with John Green’s Paper Towns and Oliver Jeffers’ newest title This Moose Belongs to Me. I’m endeavouring to read a picture book a day, every day, either over my breakfast or with tea after dinner – who’s with me?! If you haven’t picked up a Children’s book in a while, do it, and use this week as an excuse to delve into the pages of artfully constructed stories with imagination, heart and hope.

Booktrust have an excellent Best Book Guide to help you make your Children’s Book Week choices. Let me know if you read any delights!

Snazzy Envelopes


I’ve had my eyes on these envelopes for a while now, I’m an avid collector of letter writing stationery and Papier Tigre have some pretty sleek looking gems hanging about their site. These Airmail style fold up envelopes are my favourite, it’s nice to have a modern twist on the much loved retro envelope. Look at how snuggly they fold together, a work of beauty!

Paper necklaces for a paper friend

Just spotted these paper origami necklaces by Laura des Villes. Oh my. I’m now going to spend the rest of my day off attempting to make a windmill out of paper… it can’t be too difficult surely?!

Falling Garden, flower heaven

I missed the paper flower workshop at Renegade this weekend due to having to catch a train to Falmouth, and now I’m kicking myself – if I had the skills I could totally recreate this gem of a exhibit…
