Perfect Buys

A happy howdy everyone :) Today, I thought I'd write a blog post about the lovely goodies I have bought over the last few weeks.

During a rare shopping trip to Derby a few weeks ago, I just had to nip in to one of my favourite shops, Paperchase. From a young age, I loved stationary shops. I would collect pens, pencil sharpeners and all manner of fancy things to put in my school pencil case. So, when I saw these very pretty Washi tapes, I simply had to get them. They are such beautiful colours printed with lace. What more could you ask for :)


The next thing on my list of things to show you is this wonderfully coloured vase. I picked this up from a local charity shop. Since we had our hallway and landing decorated, I've been looking out for a Mustard (my favourite colour) coloured vase to sit on the windowsill. And, to my luck I came across this for a mere quid - that's £1 between me and you ;)


Ok, so I've saved  the best 'til last. With my Mum's birthday coming up, I've been keeping my eye's peeled as to what to get her. My lovely friend Caroline at Caroline Rose Art had just made some of her wonderful prints in to mugs, which I thought would be perfect for her. I settled on the Caravan Mug...and a few other things while I was there :)

The 'A Home In Which To Rome' notebook is great to jot down my crochet pattern ideas and I just couldn't resist this Alphabet Print for Tiny D's bedroom (frame from here)...

...I have to say, I think the hedgehog is my favourite :)

You can find Caroline Rose Art's website here and her Etsy shop here. Please do give her a visit, her work is so wonderfully cheery and delightful!

Well, that is all for now my lovelies :)

See you back here later in the week for a bit of a Giveaway!
