Well, it has been quite a while...

I am now a married woman! Things have been a bit busy and I've been away for a few days. We just had a little ceremony and a lovely weekend away in the New Forest. Next year we're having a big party with tea and cakes and all things pretty.

Anyway, I am back and I will try to post every day from now on.

Firstly, I have been seeing pleated bib front blouses like this everywhere and admiring the lovely paper-like folds. I think these two are really pretty.

Topshop


Next is Veryround by Louise Campbell;

This is simply a very round chair. Signed limited edition pieces. Consists of 160 circles, and focuses as much on shadowplay as on construction. The chair rocks sideways. It was designed by cutting small paper models by hand, and the intention was for the result to look as fragile as the original models. It does, but it is as strong as can be.



And finally, today I found this amazing 100% recycled paper wallpaper by Mio Culture available at Vivavi, 'an eco-friendly furniture and home design centre.'


That's all for now, back tomorrow!

Congrats on getting married! That is so great. Glad things are going well, I missed you.

Things are great with me, thanks for asking :)

Congratulations!
I love the paper chair, kind of like a spiders web, looks so fragile but yet so strong.
