It was certainly a good plan to move house around my birthday (even if I didn’t actually plan that) as everyone has been giving me things for the house or money to buy stuff. Here’s a few of my new additions, starting with some Easter bunnies! These are plastic nesting dolls from Paperchase – for some bizarre reason, these haven’t been available online so get to a store quickly if you want a set.
More bunnies – a beautiful lino print and ceramic bunny by Jen Collins, perfect additions to my mantelpiece.
My mum crocheted me these amazing lime potholders! I found a pattern for fruit potholders on Tuts+ but I asked for lime ones, as lime is my favourite. She made them double thickness instead of using a felt backing so they’re much more useful too.
I picked up these pretty cake plates on my birthday trip into Glasgow. They’re by Royal Doulton and designed by Karolin Schnoor – the whole Fable range is lovely.
I got a surprise wishlist gift from my dad – a lovely print by Stasia Burrington on Etsy. It was a good reminder to order more framing mats (I use the awesome Picture Lizard) – now I just need to work out where to hang all my art, and how (the downside of renting).
I finally invested in some Stickygram magnets of my favourite Instagram pics – it was pretty hard to choose! They’re pretty good quality, and a lot bigger than I was expecting.
And not something for my house, but my sister got me the fluffy panda bag I was going on about and it’s so cute! Plus it’s basically a twin of my panda cushion from Japan. So yay, good birthday.
