A few nice things…

It’s been a little while since I shared some nice things from around the internet, so here’s some cool stuff I’ve seen recently: Comp.

The Dreamday Pattern Journals have been sat on my desk for a little while, as I haven’t had much time to blog lately. As some of you know, I’ve been working on a different project, which has meant lots of time sat at my desk, mulling things over (and freaking out a little bit). During… Read more »

Moustache Stationery: Shabby Chic

I’m going to start by saying that I think Shabby Chic is the wrong name for this Moustache Stationery box… I think it should be called “Lifestyle Blogger’s Dream”. I mean, look at it, there’s rose gold, perspex, blush, mint, geometrics, pastels. Even the card saying what was in the box had marble print. Need… Read more »
