Also loving this fab koi pattern from the clever people at Beautiful Skin. They really do have a pattern for everyone and every mobile electronic device.

Really loving some of these vintage items from the mercantile at Spool N0. 72. Especially this old tin holiday camper - what a fun decorative piece. And also the vintage hooked rug, below. Wish I could find both of these pieces when I'm out thrifting!

You know me - I'm not mad about modern patterns but these are quite stunning. I love the colour palette and the texture created by the contour lines. Very impressive and really beautiful. These are designed by Sabine Reinhart and I discovered her work through Print and Pattern.
This looks like a great book for all of us who have way too many collections. Creative Walls: How to Display and Enjoy Your Treasured Collections by Geraldine James. This book is right up my alley and just when I thought I would start simplifying things around here I think I might just start cluttering everything up again - it's so much more fun!
This work of art is Louise Fili Ltd's new subway poster for the School of Visual Arts. "The design is an homage to the urban mosaic artisans of the early 20th century, and after hours of painstaking Photoshop work, John and Dana agreed that it may have been easier to create it out of actual tiles."

Aren't these fab? - Vintage Puffin kids' books. I'm sure I had some of these when I was young! I love how bold the illustrations are - fill up that page, don't waste any space at all! I think my favourite would be the trees book - reminds me of that card we have with the big chestnut tree on it!
