new in from susiemaroon

Some very lovely new things we have in from Edinburgh designer Susie Brown (aka susiemaroon). Really love these phone covers (above & below). They come in either leather or felt, and every one is beautifully presented in card with a little bit of info about Susie/susiemaroon on the back.

Some very stylish Respectable Spectacle cases. They come in three styles - catseye, 1920s readers & aviators.

The Biro bookmark. Comes in four different colourways to keep you in your place in style. I'm sure you could even stick it behind your ear between pages.

new lush designs

More wildlife now. This time in the shape of the new Stag lightshade from Lush Designs. This ones a biggie (measuring about 46cm in diameter and 34cm deep) and features a magestic stag, flapping pheasants, and some rather fierce (but clueless) dogs. We have the big one (pendant) in this pale blue and a smaller version (for a lamp) in taupe.

Also new from Lush are these cat storage tins featuring some rather fetching felines having a tea party!

And new to boo vake these delicious fruit & veg napkins - with brussel sprouts, carrots, beetroot, & rasberries on a nice crisp white cotton. They measure a generous 39cm x 39cm and come boxed in mixed sets of 4 (as pictured above).
ps. red foxy pendant shades and wild pig lamp-shades are now back in stock!
large stag pendant shade £98, small stag lamp-shade £42, cat storage tin £9.50, fruit & veg napkins £29

Just taken my first tentative steps on twitter (and still a bit perplexed at how it all works). No fancy phone here, just a clockwork computer with limited connectivity, so tweeting no doubt will be somewhat intermittent. If you would like to follow boo vake (aka Arlene) then there's a wee link on the right-hand side of this blog. Thank you!

our forest friends

Hmmm....ok, so Spring may not have sprung in Perth quite yet. Just going to ignore the alternating flurries of snow, sleet, and ice-cold rain outside the window, and celebrate the imminent coming of less sludgy times regardless. Helped along no end by the arrival of some papery goodness designed by Madeleine Rogers (aka Mibo).

Meet our Forest Friends. I've just made up a set of these and they are now sitting most resplendent in our window. They come as flats sheets which you cut out yourself, and with the help of a bit of glue (or double-sided tape as I used) are transformed into super-cute 3d friends with little bobbly heads.

If you're more of a big animal kind of person then maybe The Wid Bunch would be more your thing.

And for lovers of tea-towels.......

.....which can be used for the drying of the dishes OR alternatively cut up and stitched to produced these fine little chaps below!
