Made a Thing

Paper pompoms win over woolly pompoms. I learnt to make these here and I can't stop. Made a pink one for the office too.

Pretty Thing

Yellow is awesome

Want one

This clever person on Etsy made these and I really do want them.

Made a mobile

I saw and coveted the mobiles here, so made my own out of a mixture of plain and patterned writing paper (i don't write many letters anyway).

Purchase to dream

I promised myself I wouldn't buy anymore clothes or shoes. But I am very, very weak

The image wraps around to the back cover and its printed on parchment-like stock. Must have. Buy book, read book, stick cover on wall.

Fat Wee Birds and Guitars!

Went on an impromptu trip to see this after work (god bless the Barbican for late opening) The installation is a serendipitously lovely idea by CĂ©leste Boursier-Mougenot. Check out an audio slide-show of the zebra finches doing their best Hendrix here

Its the first posting, so here's another feast for the eyes: a brilliantly stylish take on a much-loved classic


The first in a (hopefully) regular posting which aims to beautify our bookselves. An alternative to the supermarket book glitz parade
Barbie never looked better. I don't remember Tippi Hendren looking that happy when she got on the wrong side of The Birds
