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?


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.

Grow Your Own calendar by Bold & Noble

Now that it is November I feel I can safely mention that Christmas is on its way.  I am intending to feature interesting products which garden lovers would love to receive as gifts over the next two months, starting with this quirky Grow Your Own calendar by Bold & Noble.  It is a hand pulled screen print which comes in black or green, giving month by month guidance as to when to plant and harvest.

If a calendar is not your thing but you like their style, Bold & Noble also do lovely art prints like the two below (Wild Wood and Meadow). They are giving away a free print with all orders until 17 December, which is a lovely gesture.  Details here.

Terrarium Cards by Quill & Fox

Love these terrarium cards by stationer Quill & Fox, which you can purchase in their recently launched online store.  They are available individually or as a set.

Also really like this City Park set for someone you correspond with regularly, as of course you would really have to send all cards to the same recipient for the desired effect. So lovely.
