Give me strength…


Halston 3 Seater Sofa Aqua

Would it be crazy to buy a sofa that would require complete redecoration of the living room?  It’s so lovely! Halston 3 seater sofa.

I love the colour and I LOVE the price.  £499.00, on is definitely worth investigating.

They are  ‘making a stand, taking on the giants to offer you great furniture design at affordable prices. [Their] ambition is to bring original design to the masses by revolutionising the furniture retail market.’

Sounds good to me!

Paperchase Online, finally

Disclaimer:  If you are not a fan of cute and kitschy things, this post may make you feel nauseous. Or convert you.


Cloud 9 Luggage Tag

You can now shop online for Paperchase goodies!  One of the things I miss about London was the weekly amble around the Paperchase store opposite Charing Cross.  Always a pleasure.  Up until recently their products were only available on Amazon, which was a pretty tedious way to browse their things.  After all, if you are shopping at Paperchase, you want to enjoy the visual feast!

Here are some of my favourite bits from the current collections:

Cloud 9 Tea for one – I have been planning to get one of these.  I went to a lovely tea tasting session on the weekend, and might just need this pot so I can enjoy my new tea at work.

Dreamland Sticky Notes

Dreamland Iphone Case – A pony with a tiara. A deer.  Crochet cupcakes, lace and polkadots.  Need I say more?

Folk Trees Notecards

Pantry Peepers Snack boxes – great name, great design.

Wild Heather Clip Frame Purse


 Wild Heather Laptop Bag.  Isn’t this fantastic?

Shoe Shine Kit

There is also a good selection of greeting cards, and lots of other stationary (and non-stationary) goodness.

Lets go forth hand in hand

As seen on design is mine.

I was just browsing Etsy, and Anthony turned the music on in another room in the house.  First song on the iPod random selection – Paolo Nutini, New Shoes.  I was looking at this item.

PS:  The little deer purse ended up in my Etsy shopping cart before I even finished writing this post.  Late night shopping is the best.
