Cushions. I make ‘em. I love ‘em.
These are particularly spiffy. I didn’t make them though.
They are by YOKE and can be bought here. You can also find lovely screenprints too, like this cheery little number:
Or how about a bag?
The designs are so bright and simple.
Perfect for a happy gift or a quick cheer-you-up makeover.
Whether your own – or your sofa’s. ♥
I love alliums.
I grow them in our garden. As many as I can fit in. And I still want more.
But they are so short-lived.
Ours are nearly finished already for another year.
I keep the seed heads in a vase, but it’s not the same as when they are in their full purple-hued glory.
So it makes me very happy to see Jane Crick’s beautiful allium stationary.
You can buy Jane’s allium notebooks, gift wrap and cards from her Etsy shop.
Just like a breath of year-round summer. ♥
If I could steal anyone in the world’s fabric stash, it would be Jane Foster’s.
In fact, it’s so good that I’m almost tempted to try.
Jane has been collecting for many years and has the most beautiful collection of vintage fabrics I have ever seen. Take a look at this post on her blog and you’ll see what I mean.
My pretty things of the week this week are some of the lovelies that Jane has created recently from those wonderful fabrics.
Click on the photos to be taken to Jane’s shop, where you can actually buy these goodies.
I wish I’d made them myself.
I can’t really give any higher praise than that. ♥
I like little bags.
I like bigger bags too, but it’s nice to be able to pop out with just a phone and a purse once in a while, without carting the kitchen sink about on one’s person.
I have made a few little pouches and bags in my time, but freely admit that none turned out so wondrously cute as these.
These little lovelies are the creations of giddy giddy, an online emporium selling a whole range of off-the-scale cuteness.
I think they’re just the thing to perk up a boring old coat, or pop on over a going-out frock.
Who cares that they’re meant to be for kids?
Might have to lengthen that strap though…
Table mats. They’re a necessary evil, aren’t they?
I’m a fan of a vintage fabric tablecloth, which brightens up our grey and white kitchen no end.
But vintage fabric tablecloths and mucky boys do not sit happily together, so table mats are essential.
Mine are cheap Ikea cork ones, now somewhat the worse for wear. They get caught in the drawer and bits keep breaking off.
If I had more funds I would invest in some of these beauties instead.
Designed by Gillian Blease, these are quite the nicest table mats I have seen.
They also come as coasters and trays.
You can find them for sale at Jenny Duff and see Gillian Blease’s prints on her website.
