Blue and green should never be seen?

If these photos are anything to go by, I disagree! I love the shades of petrol blue, turquoise and emerald green in this children's fashion spread, beautifully photographed by Beatrice Heydiri.

Hand-printed greetings

They're creepy and they're kooky..... but these are the friendliest critters I have ever seen. These gorgeous cards are hand-printed by UK designer Lisa Jones, and are available in Australia from the Lark website. I love that caterpillar!

Thinking pink

A few sprinkles of pink and a touch of vintage from the pages of Country Living magazine.

Cosmic Capers

And as seen on HomeMADE - here is another image of Cosmic Capers - lots of fun for future astronauts!

On the tele last night...

The Channel 9 home make-over programme HomeMADE featured the Hiccups bedlinen design 'Cosmic Capers' in a little boy's space themed room.

Counting in the garden

Counting in the Garden is a lovely picture book for young readers by US textile designer Kim Parker (creator of those beautiful floral rug designs for The Rug Company which I would love to own...... one day.) Lush watercolour paintings of flowers in a vibrant palette hide a collection of animals and insects - a colourful way to learn to count to ten!
