This is London

I'm in love with this children's book 'This is London' by czech illustrator, artist & author Mr Sasek. It was first published in 1959 and the illustrations are so beautiful I just had to share them with you. Mr Sasek also published many other This is books before he died in 1980, details can be found on this site.

This particular book was a birthday gift for my sister, little does she know that she is VERY LUCKY to have it as I almost kept it for myself!

Buddle of happiness

I love packing my card orders almost as much as I love printing them...


Hey Foxy!

I want this so badly...

Fox & Flyte picks

Say hello to my dear friends over at Fox & Flyte. Three friends Duncan Campbell, Luke Hall & Haeni Kim who all share a passion for beautifully made things. All their products are hand picked from antique fairs and markets around the country. They are so terribly sophisticated it hurts! My picks are the Shagreen tea caddy and the Aperitif glasses... Check out their gorgeous website here and keep you eyes peeled for a fabulous collaboration between Fox & Flyte and Paper Heart!
