This looks like the best book ever. Celebrating sixty years of Marimekko, it’s full of DIY projects as well as interviews and studio tours with the project designers. It looks super fun and I would love to get my hands on it.

I’m not entirely sure if the last image is from the book for not, it did lead me to the book in the first place, but now I can’t recall where I found it. I’m keeping it here anyway as it’s the best thing I’ve ever seen. Why aren’t I an orange ghost with a round petticoat and polka dot tights? No fair.
1. Hannah is a babe and makes beautiful things.
2. Tim Denee‘s fan posters of his fave Wellington haunts (I had a cider spider [as in ice cream soda] at Sweet Mo’s last night, blew my mind!).
3. CM + Thomsen
4. Krisatomic‘s Iceland from above, wonderful. I must get there immediately.
5. White Mischief by Tim Walker (and the crazy people it’s inspired by) via Rhiannon.
The new penguin paperback series comes out in April, with covers designed by the ever astounding Coralie Bickford-Smith. Having heard of barely any of them, I can’t wait to check them out. I’d still love to collect more of her last series, though I’ve been so scared of ruining the one I have I’ve only opened it once.
You may know of my love for the design work of Anna Bond of Rifle Design & Paper Co, since I blog about it rather often. Lets be honest, you’d think I was on her payroll the way I gush on about her charming hand-drawn type & illustrations! But no, just terribly in love with the paper things she creates…
I’ve been anticipating the opening of her store for some time, and now I can see why it took a wee while to open – she’s really outdone herself, with a beautiful site and a huge new range of products I’m quite excited about.
Greetings & thank you cards:
Holiday cards & giftwrap:
And best of all (in my humble opinion), a selection of personalised notes and calling cards:
Would so love to have a set of the calling cards.
Now I wait with baited breath for the wedding invitation section of the shop to open…
