Thank you

Yep, it's been a while since January. I've been thinking about this blog a lot and I think it's a natural time to leave it be for a while. Life has had many changes since I started back in 2008 and it's been amazing to have a space to chronicle ideas, keep pictures and list books. But it's increasingly become harder to keep up with, and I don't want to see it as a chore.

So I'm saying a heartfelt thank you to my readers (I think it's mainly my Mum!) and I may well pop in again in some time - I'll keep updating my book list.

Delicious room layout

Such a soothing room - the light and the muted colours are so peaceful to look at.

Well this changes things. GOLD Hasbeens. Of course they're not in my size, but if they fit you, just do this, please, for all of us.

Charlotte Love

Isn't this a gorgeous colour palette? The pink, white and black really jump out at me in an amazing way.

The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

I haven't raved about a book on here for a while, but this was a particularly awesome read. Super clever plot, beautiful, aching writing and just an exceptionally clever idea. Loved it.

Klas Fahlen Letterpressed notebooks

Ooh hi pretties. Some lovely letterpressed notebooks coming out of Chronicle Books at the moment and I love the mid-century feel of these ones, especially.

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...

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.
