Too many books?


The time has come in our new home to create a decorative but functional space for all of our books. I have been trawling through magazine after magazine to find any kind of (affordable) inspiration.
My main fear is that I will buckle under the strain to find a solution fast and end up settling for a mediocre, run of the mill, Ikea-esque bookshelf.

Then I found this genius creation. Bookshelf stairs/Bookshelf ladder:





I'm afraid I didn't stop at the stairs, there could be nothing better than literature and furniture design combined!

I also couldn't resist sharing these affordable book inspired beauties:

Vending for Anthropologie....


Well hello my dears.

I have been locked away for the last few months finishing a huge order of my teacup bracelets for the wonderful company, Anthropologie. I am now an official vendor for them and have had an incredible last 5 months meeting the American buyer in London and generally working all the hours God sends.





The bracelets were featured in their november catalogue and to say I am proud (and exhausted) is a giant understatement. Thank you to everyone for your help and support (and sending me teacups).

Here are a few snaps of the production (chaos) and photos from Anthropologie's November catalogue.
