Lasso the Moon

"Upwardly Mobile" shadow box by Michele Chivers

I've got the feeling that everyone's a bit down in the dumps in the Northern hemisphere - Christmas is over, you're all spent up, it's cold and yes, the snow is turning to slush... So, I thought I'd kick off today with some nice fresh, uplifting finds from a wonderful online gift shop called "Lasso The Moon" (love the name!).
I can honestly say that it's been a while since I came across an address like this - I want to buy the entire shop! Founded by Laura Dunkley, Lasso The Moon offers an exciting collection of hand-picked gifts and accessories from some of the finest established and up-and-coming designers and makers in the United Kingdom. Lots of new names, ideas and inspiration - take a look for yourself

I've already found some stylish Valentine's Day stationery

"Back Together" card by Becky Found

and a couple of Easter presents (have to be inventive with dairy-free diets...) - Miles and Savannah will love Anna Hull's "Mechanic" and "Tea Party" stencil kits, including 12 coloured pencils, in a jute drawstring bag!

And what better way of putting a spring in your step and a smile on your face than waking up to one of Cath Deeson's linocuts?

Hope you're feeling better!
