Tried and tested: Lettering resources

This post features affiliate links I've dabbled with lettering on and off for a couple of years but this year one of my goals is to actually master a technique or two.

Nursery tour: A peek inside Jenson’s room

Jenson has been sleeping in his own room for nearly two months and I'm only now ready to post a nursery tour! His room was finished minutes before he spent his first night in there because it was previously used for storage and because the frame we had planned to hang broke pretty much as… Continue reading Nursery tour: A peek inside Jenson’s room

Item of the day: Beatrix Potter audio books from The Works

When I was at my mum's the other day I noticed that my nephew has this collection of Beatrix Potter audio books. I think Jenson is too young for them at the mo (and, like me, likes 'proper' books too much) but the packaging is so adorable that I just have to have one! It's… Continue reading Item of the day: Beatrix Potter audio books from The Works

Item of the day: Liberty sewing book

I was wondering around The Works (always great for a bargain) and came across The Liberty Book of Sewing for a few measly quid (down from £20).

Roald Dahl meets John Lewis

I challenge you to find anyone under the age of 40 who didn't love at least one Roald Dahl book growing up - and probably still loves said book!
