Shop Talk

Exciting news this week as my bibs are going to be stocked in a real life shop! Kirstin from Rocket and Fairydust is setting up her very own shop in Merstham, Surrey. Alongside the hand-painted furniture that she produces, she'll be stocking lots of lovely gifts and homeware for children including my Stars and Buttons bibs. I've been building up my stocks so I can send a load down to Surrey for the shop opening. Will try to post some photos of my stuff in the shop when I make it down there.

 Rocket and Fairydust opens from midday on 11th June.

Collecting Vintage Children's Books

With bookshelves already bulging, the last thing I need is more books. But how could I resist these classic covers?

I love the fact that Jo's Boys still has the original inscription inside: "With love from Cousin Jill, 11th August 1954 xxxxxxxx". That's the great thing about pre-loved books, you can't help imagining who owned them and what sort of life they led.
