Blog & Buy Sale: Summer Wish List

I was lucky enough to have 3 pieces in the Spring Blog & Buy Sale Wish List, and even luckier to be shortlisted by the Design Museum Shop for their prize.

The Summer Wish List has recently launch and so I thought I would share with you my favourites just as many Bloggers were kind enough to do for me in Spring.

H is for Home - Eleanor Stuart
H is also for Hannah so it was probably obvious I would pick this. I have a collection of H Letterpress print blocks on my mantelpiece and this would fit in perfectly. I can't resist a bit of San Serif either. There is a whole alphabet too so you can pick your own initial or spell out a word.

Kaleidoscope Table mat set – Fun Makes Good
If I am truly honest I don't do place mats or coasters, preferring to wipe the table only rather than have to clean the table and mat, or just accepting the wear and patina that coffee and wine provides. However, the kaleidoscope pattern is irresistible and I would happily have them brighten up my tables. I have been a fan of Fun Makes Good since I first saw their Tangram Bird Leather Pouffe at a craft fair.

Don’t Drink and Jetpack Card – Hole in my Pocket
It made me laugh what more can I say! Be sure to check out Hole in my Pocket's full range of cards, there is something for everyone from Lumberjacks to Pirates, each very chuckle-worthy.

Dudley Lion Jumbo Screenprint – Peskimo
Jodie and David of Peskimo include a "generous pinch of nostalgia" and this is what attracted me to the print. I can't pinpoint the exact memory but the friendly face of Dudley takes me back to being a child in the 80's and the many colourful picture books I loved to daydream with.

Colour In Art Gallery Poster – Claire Close
Having got to the last of my favourites I notice that it is very graphic design heavy. But I don't think that is a bad thing, do you? If you have kids and are wondering what to do this rainy summer holidays I think this could be your answer. I know I would have loved this as a kid.
