Me want! Me want!


So, continuing the 'shooting myself in the foot by showcasing work thats better than mine' week, here's todays offering.

The Letter K Design prints fantastic blocks for nurseries that want more than pink or blue teddies. I love 'Good Night, Sleep Tight' and can't wait to see if Kate creates a 'slugs and snails and puppy dogs tails' one - just gorgeous, gorgeous work......more please Kate!

Look! Look! How sweet, I've just found this shop on Coriandr. Fairbourn make stunning decor for tiny ones and these are two of my favourite accessories.

Meaning of life and all that...

42 might not sound like a lot but as of this morning it was the amount of Facebook fans so it being such a significant number I'm taking 42% off on Coriandr - but only that shop! In the comments box just put "the mice say". Lasts until midnight tonight.

Ruffle my Feathers!


I love this skirt! Moons ago I really wanted a Vivienne Westwood ruffley back skirt (I say moons ago but I still want one but it was around moons ago) my pennies were loyal to buying Gaultier and so I never did......


Now Loni, I'm not saying your Vivienne Westwood but this is a far more lovely wearable skirt which I do love to love.


Already an owner of one of her dresses I can't help but want more. Love to Love you is on Etsy and the skirt is there unless I can find pennies to get it for myself.
