I've been a fan of Bibu's cushions for a long time and was excited to see that they've now released a range of wall prints. I'm finding it tricky to decide which is my favourite, it's a close call between the Flamingo and the Penguin. See the full range here.
Yes, I know it's more Orla, but I can't help it I'm a big fan! This time it's her gorgeous owl design on a tray, available from John Lewis.
I came across these china giraffe vases
on Not On The High Street and there's something I like about them, I think they'd look just as good without flowers in which is a bonus because who has flowers ALL of the time?
Finally this week...
Eek! Much excitement, one of my favourite designers Jane Foster has just launched a range of kitchen textiles featuring her panda, fox and cat designs. The panda is most definitely my favourite and available as an apron, oven glove, tea towel and rather fabulous tea cosy!
Isn't this New York wall sticker great , it's a bit pricey at 96 euros but would be a fun statement in a room!
I found this super cute bamboo wood hedgehog wall clock by Owl & Otter over on Folksy, their otter clock is rather lovely too (I do love a good Folksy browse!).
These rock mugs by Lydia Leith are great for celebrating a great British summer! Choose from Brighton, Margate and Blackpool, they're hand decorated in Stoke on Trent and the cheerful colours will look lovely on your kitchen shelves.
Finally I came across this lovely quilt from Hanna Andersson, I usually buy clothes for little miss from here but I saw they offer a small homewares range now too. I love the hand stitched Scandinavia houses on this quilt and think it would look great on a sofa or chair as much as a bed.
I came across this lovely Umbrella Cats print
by Bubble Gum Years on The Lost Lanes
a lovely site selling works by all sorts of creative people. It's only £10.49 too so I might have to treat myself.
Perhaps I'm being optimistic, but it's May now and my thoughts are turning to summer and the idea of lazing in the garden reading a book. I've wanted a traditional style deckchair for ages and then I saw these in John Lewis the other day. You buy the sycamore frame and then choose a sling to go with it, I particularly like this Nordic Harbour design.
This set of Alice In Wonderland pencils
by Pobble and Ping over on etsy is so cute. I love them, the bright colours and fun quotes just cheer me up, and at only £4.99 it's another opportunity to self gift this week!
Ooh, look what's coming soon to Magpie, a new range of retro mix and match homewares called The Modern Home - A-Z of the Atomic Era featuring some of the 20th Century's most iconinc home designs.
How cool are these glass water bottles by Faucet Face, just looking at them makes tap water seem more appealing! They're £20 from Bear & Bear
and proceeds from sales go to charities aiding those without clear drinking water.
I love all this Mini Moderns enamelware
which is coming soon, it's hard to choose my favourite product, but I think it has to be the storage jars, especially the tangerine one!
These striking papier mache bowls by Wola Nani are handmade using recycled paper products in South Africa by women living with HIV. I love the bright colours of these sardine can labels, the bowls are available to buy online here.
I'm chuffed to have some of my products featured on the Spring Blog & Buy Sale Wishlist and so I thought that this week I'd feature the products from the wish list that I have on mine.
I like everything about this upcycled school chair by Zoo Fest -the style, the colour and the fun illustration. It would fit perfectly in little miss' newly decorated bedroom.
This Father's Day card by Joanne Hawker struck a chord and made me smile (actually thinking about it I could send this to a few people....).
This Happy Apples Tea Towel by Anna Lindsten is screen printed in Sweden, I love the colours and Scandi feel of it.
Hello Ronnie & Frank the brightest, boldest cats in town - featuring here on a tote bag, by Yoke designs.
This set of 4 coasters by Mel Smith Designs feature the London skyline and can be used individually or lined up to create London Southbank.
I missed last week as I was off on an Easter break with the family, I hope this week's finds make up for it!
I really like the colour and design on this tea towel by Place In Print.
The design is inspired by the geometric brickwork pattern found on the roof of the Crystal Palace Subway, a hidden Victorian space found beneath a busy road.
We're in the middle of decorating little miss' bedroom using bright colours. I really like these wooden hangers that I found on folksy
, they're far too lovely to hide away in the wardrobe - I think this would look great on the wall as a place for me to hang the next day's clothes.
So it doesn't fall into the homewares category, BUT I would wear it in the home so I'm letting this one through. I love this Viking t-shirt from Love It Love It Love It
(this fab kidswear company also does a few adult pieces now too), I might just need this in my life this summer.
Anorak is another one of my favourite brands, my Kissing Robins bag is always receiving compliments and I recently purchased the Kissing Horses bedding
. I frequently visit their website to see what new additions they have and I just came across this fun Kissing Rabbits snack box
I think it might work well for little miss' packed lunch.
I've always loved a spot of Ingela Arrenhius' work, and so when I came across these fabulous storage tins
I knew they'd have to go straight on the wish list. They're only £12.95 for a set of 3 - I think they'll be great for storing nik naks in little miss' room.
This lovely Folk bedding from MADE
is another spy for little miss' room this week. We're currently decorating and I think a freshly decorated bedroom always needs some lovely new bedding, this colourful set will fit perfectly with the look and feel of her room (but we'll probably have the triangles on top!).
We've recently acquired a puppy which is making flooring decisions practical rather than aesthetic, I do believe you can have both though and I rest my case with these fantastic woven plastic rugs
from Sweden. This one has a definite touch of Orla about it, but there are lots of designs so it's going to be difficult to choose.
Finally I found these lovely bright Tulip coasters over on Folksy
I love the colour and Scandi inspired print and at only £15.00 I could possibly treat myself this Easter to a set!
I've been a fan of Quirk & Rescue
for a while, their love of colour and retro pattern obviously appeals to me, I especially love these Decades of Sound cushions
so much fun, I think they'd be great for teenager's bedrooms.
These light boxes from Rockett St George
make me smile, I'm just trying to work out where in my home I could put one.
I know little miss is probably too old for a mobile, but I'm just planning decorating her room in lovely bright colours and i think this crochet hot air balloon mobile
found on Folksy would look great, it's such a happy design.
Finally, I've been hunting high and low for some vinyl flooring for little miss' bathroom, I want something affordable but a bit different from your standard B&Q fare. I think these Red Circus floor tiles from Zazous
might be the answer.
I need a footstool in the living room to rest my weary legs on! I love these beauties from Orwell & Goode but at £300 I better start saving my pennies!
Samphire Bay is an online store based in Alnwick, Northumberland just up the road from me. They design lovely prints and have a range of fab screenprinted hessian cushions featuring local sayings, I'm pretty sure 'plodge' is universal though isn't it?
I love this new Nelly wallpaper by Rachel Powell and think it would work really well with our Elephant lampshade.
These bone china mugs from Alfred & Wilde featuring gold geometric designs are so stylish and would be a lovely addition to my kitchen.
One of my favourite online furniture stores MADE.COM have launched a new kids range, it's full of lovely stuff and I'm sure little miss' room will soon be filling up with pieces. I love the mini version of these kitsch chairs as well as this hexagon bedding. There's also a whole range of monochrome pieces which would be great for accessorising a teenager's bedroom.
Having spent a number of years selling a whole range of home goodies in my store, I still enjoying hunting out new products and keeping them bookmarked for future treats or presents. I thought the blog would be a good opportunity to share my favourite homeware finds from around the internet each week.
I need a new laundry basket and I love the simplicity of this Nautical Stripe one by the Little Baby Company and it's only £15.95 which isn't bad at all.
Err hello Pineapple night light, I'm not sure if you'd fit anywhere in my home but I do like you rather a lot! Looking at the dimensions it's pretty much the same size as the real life fruit, but at around £60 it's a bit pricey for me to buy on a whim!
If you've been familiar with Hunkydory for a while, you'll know I love a Tunnocks teacake, I love these new storage tins from Gillian Kyle , on this occasion I think the Caramel Wafer tin is my favourite though.
THESE mix and match ceramics from House Of Rym, the Drippity Drop design teacup is my current favourite, but I'd love to have the whole collection to show off in my dresser!
Ahoy there! These paper plates from Magpie are shouting out for a picnic on the beach (matching paper cups available too) - roll on Spring/Summer.
