I love paper. I love the way it is super versatile and you can make it do pretty much anything you think of. I once made it do this for a photoshoot. If you want to make something similar you can watch an instructional video I did for HobbyCraft a little while ago, it shows you how to make these giant flowers.

Anyway I digress… The other day I stumbled across the beautiful website of  Paper+Cup Design. After having a good look round I found they had just released a book full of their quirky and cute designs. I received mine in the post this morning and though the projects are quite simple they all have the delightful design aesthetic that I love.

If you are new to crafting, want to make something with your children or just want another book to coo over and be inspired by then get yours here.

This week I am working at Vogue House; very nice, very swishy with possibly the largest Jo Malone candle ever in the reception (anywhere else I work this would have the sprinkler systems going off and fire marshals donning their high-vis jackets in no time). At lunch Marc Jacobs sent his lovely ones round to hand out fresh flowers from flower painted mini van and trailer combos. A much needed blast of spring.

No free perfume though.

Soon it will be Fashion Week, will Marc be able to top this?

Since I am in the middle of house hunting at the moment, I understand that however much I want to I shouldn’t buy new beds, sofas and carpets but I can’t resist buying small things I can easily store till I find somewhere to go. Recently I seem to be finding lots of lovely drawer knobs… The number 1-4 ones are from Tiger (like Ikea but smaller and in highstreets) and were about £4. The button and other number ones are from Anthropologie and were £6 each.

I’m gonna need a bigger chest of drawers.
