• Bonfire night

    Oooh, ahhh, wow…! I love the magic of Bonfire Night. Fireworks lighting up the night sky. Hot mulled cider, wooly hats and gloves and spelling out my name with sparklers. Hosting your own bonfire party tonight? Download our sparkler labels. All you need is a black and white printer, some plain A4 paper, a pair of scissors and a hole punch…

    Click on the image above. Print off the PDF, cut out and punch a hole in the facing corners and thread the sparklers through. Pop them in a jar for guests to help themselves. (remember to take the label off before you light them)! Happy Guy Fawkes.

    Betty and Walter

    These retro style prints from Betty and Walter come from Lisa Levis’s (nee Stickley) new Allotment Collection. Inspired by her uncle Walter’s love for growing his own (he sounds like a nice chap) and one of Lisa’s favourite 60′s cook books. I love the adorable cotton pinnies with vegetable silhouettes. Do you like it too? See more of the range, including tote bags and purses, here.

    Paper and design boutique, Studio Scrase launched a cute range of hand-drawn cards this year. I spotted graphic designer, Donna-Marie Scrase at London’s Top Drawer where she had been hand-picked by Charlotte Abrahams for the new ‘design talent’ section. Donna is inspired by nostalgia, Scandi design, vintage 1930′s poster art and bold colours. Designed, printed and packaged in beautiful Bath, these are a few of my favourites. I love the autumnal leaves and vintage tea pots…
