Playing It Simple

Yes, when all is said and done,
I definitely prefer the little simple things in life...

I hope you haven't left all your Christmas Shopping to the last minute like me!!!
Although we never go wild, I have a long list prepared for this weekend, so wish me luck!

I didn't have time to put together any gift guides for you on K&C this year but you can always hop over to this board on pinterest if you're stuck for ideas for now or birthday presents next year. I also curated two collections over at Handmade Charlotte, so you can have a look at those too.

Thank you for all your shop orders, ça fait plaisir ! Only two of these left now - hurry, hurry!

You know, I've had my eye on Stefania Manzi's uplifting Zazie dans le Metro poster for ages.

Time to share a few examples of the wonderful Italian artwork, design, kids' playthings and accessories you can find at Buru-Buru.

A shop full of surprises!


High Five #83

I think they're wonderful, like everything else she makes. 
Specks & Keepings -  forever inspiring and unique.

Bonjour !
Happy Colour My Monday!

I'd like to kick off the week with my favourite neutral palette - whites, blacks, browns and creams. I love decorating our home with this colour scheme and never a day goes by without me wearing something black.Yes I'm that kinda girl...

Sandrine Péron knows how much I love her little black dresses. I wouldn't mind a whole line of her etchings hanging on my office wall. Well, maybe I should leave room for a few of these beautiful patterns though, Le Ménagère en vrac - J'adore !

I'm also very much into Tumblr right now, as you may already know. I have discovered so many unusual, inspiring links, including the very special Shipbuilding blog.
 Kim McKechnie's cloth & paper works are exquisite.
You should treat yourself to five minutes of beauty.
I'know I'm going to.

Have a great week!

High Five #82


Allez, it's a while since we've had any really nice wooden toys on here, so today I'm giving a big High Five to the new-to- me Croatian maker

I love the simple, minimal designs and packaging, which remind me of my dad's old Bayko set that I used to love playing with as a child.

I have a feeling that everything this woman makes is beautiful

Tumblr has introduced me to her many interests, including washing lines
a favourite of mine too.

Beatrice has just opened a "textile backery" on Dawanda selling a small selection of her mini wild clothes sculptures for Christmas, Spring, Summer ...

I am in love.
