Oliver Jeffers...

I've always looked to childrens illustrations as a source of inspiration right from my days at University many moons ago through to today, and have admired the work of Oliver Jeffers for some time now...
So, I decided to treat myself to an early Christmas present and buy his amazing collection of books, every page is literally filled with yumminess!
My favourites have got to be 'The incredible book eating boy', 'The great paper caper' and 'Stuck'. 
(if I had to pick a top three, but all are gorgeous)

Here are just a few examples of his beautiful illustrations...

Things I've loved this week...

These are getting a bit of a regular feature on here...
Its nice though, to just round up some gorgeousness from the week...

Some lovely things this week; 
 a gorgeous new print from Anna Emillia (1) , Lisa Stickley cushion (2), and something I literally fell totally in love with this week (all over again) Elena Deshmukh cards (3), my oh my, she has some beautiful new editions to her collection including 'Souvenirs' and 'Sailor and Friends' inspired by her very own little terrier.
Keep a look out for them in the shops.

H&M have a lovely collection of home ware now which I recently stumbled across and I absolutely love this cushion (4) ; could be the bird, could be the 'etchy sketchy' technique or the gorgeous scribbly wording, who knows, probably all three, but its lovely isnt it...

Next up, an all time favourite of mine, liberty prints (5). Their new additions to the ever increasing offering of fabric definitely do not dissapoint. This lovely print is one of many new ones you can see over on their website.

Lastly, this lovely october desktop from Tabitha Emma (6).

happy weekend everyone
