A little Greek inspiration

I'm afraid I've neglected my blog somewhat over the last few weeks. I've just come back from a lovely holiday in Greece catching the last of the summer sun. Today I just thought I'd share a few of the things that caught my eye.

I love the unusual packaging of this chewing gum with its strong colours and geometric patterns.

And I really like the simplicity of the distressed metal bus stop with the cut-out bus detail, the subtle colours of the stone panels top right, and the shape and vivid red of this old fire hydrant.

I like the look of distressed paintwork and worn surfaces generally, and was drawn to the lovely textures and colours of this turquoise door and wooden panelling. And these colourful tables and chairs are just very cheerful and fun, I think they may inspire a future colour palette.
I hope you saw something you liked in my odd little selection of images!

Cushions for sale!

Stitched Up
A while ago I entered Ohh Deer's Pillow Fight competition, and these are the designs I submitted, above and below. For a limited time starting today my cushions will be available to buy from Ohh Deer's online shop! So, if you fancy adding a colourful, quirky cushion or two to your home click on these links. Click here to buy 'Stitched Up,' the design above. And here if you're interested in 'Stacks,' the design below. They will only be on sale for 3 weeks so hurry if you think you'd like one!
After this time Ohh Deer will be choosing 4 designs from the competition entries to add to their shop, and to sell through their stockists, including Tate Modern and the Millennium Gallery. Fingers crossed!
