Friday Fancies

We hope you have all had a wonderful week with more fun planned for the weekend. Have you been taking any time out to be mindful? We’d love to hear.

Here are a few things we saw this week that we thought you might like too …

All The Fun of The Fair is a gorgeous little shop in Kingly Court off Carnaby Street. Luckily for everyone not living in London they have an on line shop, and for the month of January they are offering free postage if you enter the code JANFREEPOST at checkout. These are a couple of items we like :

ec-button-magnet-set-a A magnet set of assorted multi-coloured printed vintage type buttons arranged on a display card. The set can be used as one big magnet or can be separated into 15 individual magnets. Now 2 for £10.00



‘Love to Sew’ 16mm Ivory Grosgrain Ribbon. 3m reel. 2 sewing themed designs. Choose the other design as your free one, or pick two the same. Just put one in your basket and we will send the second one too. £3.25



These lovely owl cushions are made with retro, vintage and floral fabric. They are ideal for all ages as each component is stitched and not stuck! They are approx 30cm tall and 30cm wide. Fabrics will vary, let us know if you have a colour preference. REDUCED – were £25, now £20


Have you heard of Striking TruthsWe recently discovered them and have signed up for their daily doses of inspiration. Here’s what they say:

We’ve been inspired by literally hundreds of books and words of wisdom by everyone from Godin to Gandhi. We’ve devoured mantras, TED Talks and scraps of inspiration we find on the web and in the world around us.

 We wanted to find a way to gather those loose threads of inspiration, bottle that wisdom and make it shareable. We wanted the words to live on after the last page was turned. We wanted to create inspiring declarations of our own too, and share them in a beautiful and compelling way each day, so we created striking truths.

The one thing we can’t create is more time, that’s what inspired us to set about inspiring you, in just a minute or two every day with a gorgeous manifesto.

Some examples:

We have mentioned BurdaStyle before and we just had to share some images from their new pattern collection entitled French Traveler


Stunning eh?


And finally a lovely little tune to travel into your ear and stick in your head …

Hope you enjoy!

See you Monday

handsome and pretty
