An Allotment Fancier’s Stationery Set


Very sweet gift for your favourite veg gardener: the Allotment Fancier’s Stationery Set from the Society of Revisionist Typographers (!).  Stationery is a big love of mine and I adore traditional printing techniques like letterpress.

Printed from antique blocks, the pack includes a notebook, 30 sheets of notepaper and 8 notelets.  You can purchase this set from Mabel Rose… something to think about for Father’s Day perhaps?


Floral paintings by Rebekka Seale

These floral paintings are by Nashville based artist Rebekka Seale.  It appears they are part of a series, one painting for each month of 2013.  I am excited to see the rest as the year goes by.

I am so happy to have discovered these paintings on Etsy as they led me to Rebekka’s lovely blog.  If you like a beautifully photographed personal blog, do check it out.

Our veg patch

our-gardenA quick look at the state (!) of our veg patch last weekend.  We share the garden with our neighbours and this is “our side”.  I haven’t wanted to share pictures of our garden on here as it’s hardly a showpiece.  The main priority for us is growing food.  One day we will have our own and we will be able to do exactly what we like with it – the dream!  We’ve sowed quite a lot of veg and flower seeds last weekend and have popped them into our new electric propagator and it’s been fun watching the seedlings pop up over the last few days.
