C'est La Vie!

A couple french word designs that I particularly liked that didn't get chosen for a project I did recently. I kind of feel sorry for them (I really need to get out more!) But hopefully they'll eventually be used for something else - I was thinking the top one could be used for a little girls pinafore or maybe bedsheets or something?

Anyone else feel sorry for their rejected designs?

Happy Valentine's Day

I saw this on one of my favourite blogs 'Lil Sonny Sky and couldn't resist sharing it with all of you, especially for Valenetine's Day. xxx

Marimekko Love

Ian bought me these beautiful tulips this week, and I loved the gorgeous colours - they're just so uplifting and instantly made me think of one of my favourite designers Marimekko.

I have a lovely Finnish friend knowing my love of this wonderful happy brand has sent me a few tasty design treats, some the bright pinks and reds...

......the cutest socks in the world for Delilah......

.....a chirpy chicken! I recently lost my keys for a few days (am far too scatty at the moment!) and was much more worried about loosing this happy fella than being able to actually get in and out the house! I just love the simplicity in all their designs and the eye popping colour.

Also, it turns out I'm cooking up another Coote! Baby number 2 will be due in August - I'm sure I'm a bit crazy and will probably never sleep again (!) but we're all really excited abut it. I'm thinking this may be the perfect baby grow for the little new addition!
