2015 is coming!

I've had long conversations with V, my stationery enabler/buddy about the place of a paper diary in an increasingly phone/watch/computer led world. I decided not to invest heavily in all the diaries/planners that I liked, but to get this fun one (a page a day) for just the general goings-on/meeting notes that I like to take on paper. It's not a perfect solution, but it's very pretty. (It's also about 40% off in Black Friday sales - just saying!).

Marimekko Räsymatto plate

I just want to extol the virtues of this plate. I have only one and not a whole set (yet!) but it's just so great. It's bigger than a normal side plate, but not a full dinner plate, and somehow just holds everything you need. It's also just a pattern I never tire of - I have been known to use it, clean it and use it immediately again, just because it's that good. I think it's time for the set...

Hester and Cook

I've just discovered this website which sells paper ribbon - isn't it stunning? I don't know exactly how you'd use it but the old fashioned spools and patterns are glorious.

Pens galore

I will never tire of sets of pens like these. Arranging and arranging in colour - just spectacular.

Geometric Foxy

I don't really wear brooches but isn't this one a sweetie? So geometric-y and foxy.

Oh sweet goodness

These boots are made for me. It's really all I can do to not dribble while looking at the screen.

House rings

Adore these house rings, inspired by antique Jewish wedding rings which are built to symbolise the love of the partners and the family home. Just beautifully done.

Well this could be a game-changer

My very stylish friend was wearing one of these the other night, and I thought it might be a cool Scandinavian designed watch. I think I literally grabbed her arm for a better look - and it turns out it's an e-watch/wearable! Which is shocking because I've never thought they looked very nice and this is pretty stunning. Nice round face and very soft suede band. Could definitely be a possibility - I've been waiting for something that doesn't look like a plastic bracelet/watch from 1992.

Amazing print

Whoops another week went by! Here I am again - and lookee at this pretty! What a fun print - I wish I had space for it on my walls ;)

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Thought this was a fun (and sort of spooky) garland.

Elegant Simplicity

I love, love this planter. It fools me into thinking it might be easy to make, but I suspect it won't be. Either way, delightfully elegant answer to getting ugly pots off the floor.

Tee hee

Love these light installations - such fun messages. It would be even cooler to have one that you could swap out messages for and leave for your housemate? I can imagine mine being sort of ridiculous but a lot of fun :)

Amazing wall colour

Isn't this grey wall amazing? I love the way the yellow bounces off it - delightful.
