friday i´m in love


Papa Stour is an on-line boutique offering a selection of goods from scottish crafters. But more than that, Papa Stour is a huge influence for me: one of the most beautiful web shops i´ve ever seen, with a calm and very modern lay out, wonderful pics and a tasteful selection of good, clean, contemporary design.
I´ve just received my first order from Papa Stour; when you order something from this shop you will receive the item directly from the designer, which, for those of us who love to get snail-mail, only makes the experience more delightful. I ordered the Spotty mice by Spiky Pebble in sky blue, and it came wrapped with lovely blue gingham ribbon and kraft brown stamped tags, and i also ordered the Small ceramic bauble in pale mint and the Low porcelain dish in unglazed pink both by Rachel Jayne Rogers (a gorgeous ceramic artist), which came in a sleek package of black signature box and black tissue paper.
Also, the costumer service is super friendly, Rosie, the owner being extremely helpful and kind.
In short, such a recommendable experience that i have even made this little wishlist for more Papa Stour goodness:

- Mini turquoise round brooch by Kaz Robertson
-Charm necklace by Hannah Louise Lamb

-Silver oval cut-out earrings by Hannah Louise Lamb

-Striped scarf with knitted badge in amoroso by INTO
-Dolly birds in mint green by Clare Nicolson
-Blue enamel silver charm bracelet by Jill Paton
-Willow garland by Lise Bech


A special mention for Nebo Peklo & Port2port press set of delicately letterpressed cards.

New changes in my blog roll: new inspiring blogs, Print&Pattern , full of visual inspiration, and Shims&Sons, by a mum who turns every project into a gorgeous lesson in style. And also new friends that are also inspiring artists and crafters: Adriana from Cotton Strudel, Majeak Ann, and Nii -Snoorific Pigeon (Sini Puu). You are all a great source of inspiration and joy for me. And very, very cute, all of you! ^-^
