Love This: Nature girl and Nature boy

I am in love with these gorgeous prints by Lizzie Stuart;

Nature Girl

Nature Boy

Fitting for our new adventure, such a shame we wont have any walls to hang them on for a while, still firmly on the wishlist though. Available from her Etsy shop, along with lots more illustrated goodness.

Love this: Little studio

Marit Lissdaniels and Angelica Utterberg set up Little Studio in 2010, their playful designs are intended for adults and children alike and they take inspiration from children’s ability to see things for more than they really are, a triangle becomes a mountain for example, a concept I love. Their charming products include prints, cushions and cutting boards all produced in Sweden, they smack of that intrinsic elegance that comes with genuine Scandinavian cool. On my wishlist: The landscape tray.

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

Love This: House of Rym

One of my favourite designers Elisabeth Dunker of Fine Little Day and Anna Backlund have designed a new  home wear collection for Rym. I am absolutely In. Love. The rug design is perfection in my eyes, and the crockery is elegant with a dash of curious whimsy and nature inspired goodness, I am also a fan of the mix and match concept. Wishlist.

‘Flaky fields and mountain drops’ rug

Love This: Eleni Kalorkoti

Today I am in need of some mid-week escapism and have found myself dreaming of far-flung worlds, the perfect sort of day to discover these wonderful  illustrations by Eleni Kalorkoti, I especially love Franny and Zooey, one of my favorite books that I have been meaning to re-read…

A nifty weekend project:

I saw this and thought of you…

If, like me, you or your walls need an injection of joy then how about this for a nifty idea. Perfect if you have some pretty handkerchiefs/ scarfs/ bits of material lying around, I think the addition of some doilies would be most welcome too.

Red Scottie lambswool blanket from Avoca – woven in Ireland

Nos Da throw by Donna Wilson available  from Design Within Reach

Albion woollen blanket from Toast

Harlequin woven blanket by Fine Little Day, has been featured on APF before but I just LOVE it.
