Give me five

Vintage gas station sign from 26 Olive Street

For those of you who've been waiting to see Famille Summerbelle's new London and Paris maps in London bus red and sage green, look no further:

Aren't they gorgeous? These fabulous paper-cut map prints are available as of today, and I'm pleased as punch to have won London in red in their July colour competition. Merci mille fois Julie !

Roddy & Ginger have just added a new colourway to their hugely-popular little owls range. This signed hand screen-printed gem now comes in chocolate/olive, chocolate/blue and chocolate/spruce (soft blue grey) and is available here and here.

If you're looking for fun, high-quality wallpaper with an edge for your boys' bedrooms UK company
Paperboy Wallpaper have just launched a fantastic dya-think-e-saurus range in three colourways.

The first part of their boy-centric collection can be bought exclusively from notonthehighstreet (a definite must-visit site if you've never been!) and the full collection will be available soon on their website. One to watch out for, me thinks!

I have recently discovered Ruth Green's work and I'm smitten! Based in Birmingham in the UK, Ruth trained in textile design and boasts an impressive portfolio of screenprints, linocuts, etchings and oil on paper works. Beautiful, simple and timeless pieces.

Last but by no means least, South Africa-based Jesse Breytenbach,
or Jezze, sells gorgeous blockprinted fabrics and cotton tape in her etsy shop Jezze Prints. Check out here ceramic and embroidered brooches at this address too.
