Anni Albers Prints

Love these minimalist and modern patterns and textile hangings by Anni Albers - the last one is some pretty ambitious quilt making inspiration!

Robot Wallpaper

It's times like these that the Pal is lucky we are renting. Otherwise I would feel compelled to paper the whole house with robots. I am almost entirely serious... Thanks to my sister Em for the tip.

Anemone Chair

This sort of looks like it's out of the Little Mermaid - what an amazing chair!

Breathtakingly beautiful mobile from the ever-excellent Mr Kitly. Don't worry: it's sold out, so no danger of buying. Just so pretty to look at. Happy Monday!

Tomas Kral Designs

These bottles and jars by Tomas Kral are so elegant: I love the touches of gold so much.

Elephant Lamp

This elephant lamp is a cutie. Not really my style, but was drawn to the whiteness and happy-seeming trunk.

Tape dispenser

This little squirrel looks pretty happy to be holding some tape. I'm pretty sure he'd be pretty happy on my desk, too.

Terrarium Love

Just adore these mini greenhouses. Imagine putting them on every surface of my house. Or at least on one table...

Stripey Towels

I've been in a bit of a stripey towel phase. I don't know where it happened or when it'll end, but I can't stop bookmarking them! Hoping posting them here will help alleviate the longing.

Skull Shelves

These skull shelves are just beautiful. Love that you can look at them and not see the skull and then BAM! Skull!

Magazine stools

This is such a brilliant idea - I have a very precarious pile of magazines at home that threatens to fall over and this could be an excellent solution.

Amazing Bookshelf

Well this photograph makes everything in the world seem, just, better. It should go without saying that I love all the books, but look at the wooden ceiling! Beautiful.

Just adore these examples of Craftydermy from an exhibition in the UK. A perfectly vegetarian acceptable form of animal art ;)

Seoul Stationery

I've been meaning to post some of my stationery finds from Seoul - here's a lovely hot air balloon that I bought at Artbox in MyeongDong. A stationery paradise. And yes, that's my fingertip at the bottom.

Wooden vases

Stunning wooden vases. Just so you know, they're sold out, but still just so pretty to look at here.

Old school luggage

I already have great luggage for travelling, but think this suitcase is an adorable take on old school trunks.

Leather satchel

Lots of leather satchels around these days, but this one looks like it's accompanied many a weary traveller in all kinds of weather.

Floating shelves

I know I've posted something similar to this before - still drawn to little boxes, drawers and compartments and a house-shaped one is delicious. Enjoy!

Notebook accessory

Such a great idea. Love the notion of keeping pens and books close together. Perfect. Happy Monday!

The Ship Song Project

This is one of my favourite songs and this just keeps giving me goosebumps. It's on repeat...

This must be the longest I've ever spent doing one quilt. I seem to manage about a half hour every weekend, which is bad, and working the hours I have been, there's no time at night. But, progress continues, albeit slowly!

Country Tent

Everything about this just makes me relax. Thinking of printing this out and hanging it up at work.

Gallery Wall

I've been a fan of Hilda Granhat's photography for a long time, and always come back to this one. The light, the colours, that globe. Lovely.
