Little gems:

I’ve been eyeing up some little affordable gems, you know, the  bringer’s of joy that cost the same as a bottle of wine and feel like finding treasure :

I need this singer sewing machine necklace in my life… From That Kate Creates on Etsy ~ £7

This new tape from the wonderous emporium Seventy tree is simply joyous ~ £5

Cute little rubber stamps from eatpraycreate on Etsy, this moustache is under £5

More washi tape, its amazing how much joy tape can bring, this Argyle design is surely an investment in your stationery stocks. From Cute tape and less than £3.

State your allegiance with the cat world by wearing one of  these sweet badges from Amy Blackwell, available on Etsy ~ £4

Or indeed show your love for Canadian forest animals, with these beautiful badges from Natures my friend ~ £3.50

Teapots, teapots and giveaway winners:

Thank You so much to all who entered my giveaway and supported the first two weeks of my shop by spreading the word, I absolutely LOVED hearing all your teapot stories and dreams and all your kind comments really make me happy.

My teapot collection currently houses: a very old blue and white one with a  japanese style design that has been with me most of my life and lived in all 8 of my houses, it is very sentimental and has the honor of wearing the red and white striped tea cosy, a Marmite one belonging to my husband, a small red one hand painted to look like an elephant which was a wedding gift from a friend, a Boden glass one that I refer to as the man teapot because of its masculine design, and a gorgeous brown art deco style one that my Husbands Mum handed down to me (I’m using this one to pick the winning names) . This small collection is one that I aim to build on until I have a shelf like this:

The teapot of my dreams right now is this beauty by Danish company Ferm Living:

Here are some more super teapots, including ones that you mentioned, to look at before I reveal the WINNERS!

Love This:

I absolutely love these prints by Blanca Gomez,  simplistic and reminiscent of  1920’s illustration they are timeless classics that would surely look charming in any room, I would especially like the three city prints hung on my walls. All available from her Etsy shop.

Feral Luna

Luna has lost her collar, again. This is bad for two reasons: One, it cost me £8 for her identity badge and two because she looks all feral and stray. My hunt for a new stylish collar for her has so far been fruitless. This one I found on Etsy however is a winner (if I could afford it) It is handmade and custom hand stamped, it also has a band of elastic so your cat can escape tricky situations easily! Available from Polka Shop
