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.
Another thing of beauty I found the other day in a junk shop in Chiswick. My excuse? One day I’m sure I will need them for a photoshoot.
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.
