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.

Emily Sutton, Angie Lewin Christmas Exhibition

Any Yorkshire based readers out there?  Two of my favourite artists – Emily Sutton and Angie Lewin – are exhibiting watercolours and prints at Godfrey & Watt in Harrogate until 2 December.  If you love Emily’s work as much as me but your purse says ‘no’, she has designed a Christmas range for Betty’s tea rooms including a tea caddy and mug in her lovely nostalgic style.

2012 Wildlife Photographer of the Year

wildlife photographer of the year

On my birthday last week I managed to get the afternoon off work, so we popped over to the Natural History Museum for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, which we try to get to each year.  It was a complete joy as usual and I would really recommend going along if you’re in London.  Here are a few of my favourite images.  There are lots of photos on the NHM website, but they really don’t quite compare to seeing large prints in person.
