My new favourite earrings

Just Like Little Pearls studs (sterling silver) photo by Andrew Neilson

My husband bought me these lovely little earrings at the Lustre craft fair in Nottingham. I had to wait till Christmas Day till I finally got to wear them and now I don't want to take them out! They were made by my school friend (and talented jewellery designer) Alison Macleod who has a blog full of beautiful things here. You can also see more of her jewellery on her website.

"Come along Pond!"

I just HAD to show off these drawings of Matt Smith as Doctor Who, drawn by the very talented 6 year old son of my best mate. They're brilliant! He loves all things Doctor Who and even dressed up as Matt Smith for his birthday...he looked so cute in a bow tie and tweed jacket!

Alessi Stockist

Paper Cloud Studio at no4 Eastgate is now an official stockist of Alessi in Lincoln. Great present ideas for Christmas, including the Chip magnetic paperclip holder/paperweight and extremely cute Pip keyring.

Mr Postman

Hooray! A brilliant hand-made card from Little Dark Eyes to wish us Good Luck with the new shop! And I have the perfect place to put it....we found this great little formica letter rack while hunting for furniture, with a very 1950s illustration printed on the front.
