Helen Musselwhite. Her works have covered many areas of design from decorative furniture, jewellery and paper art. Helen's work is largely influenced by her love of the British countryside which you can really see through the colours, textures and patterns that she puts in to her pieces. Take a look at some more of her work here http://www.helenmusselwhite.co.uk/ I especially love the Owl Town piece!
Some casual Sunday baking turned out to be 3 hours and lots of baking parchment but these Florentines are tasty! I'm obsessed with salted chocolate things at the moment so when I came across this recipe on not without salt I thought I would give them a try. After burning quite a few I was left with a nice stack of crispy, sweet and salty Florentines, yum!

This is quite possibly my most favourite ever shop to wander around. Anthropologie is always full of bright, beautiful unique pieces for your home. I have a constant wish list of things I hope to fill my home with one day and here are a few on the top of my list at the moment!

Timbergram is a unique type of postcard that you will never want to recycle. It is made from wood with lovely printed images and typography on the front, one for every occasion and you can choose to have your message engraved on the back, making it a postcard to treasure forever. You can even have them create you a bespoke design for that extra special event. More of their designs can be found here http://timbergram.com/
Kate Wilson-Little Doodles. I love the mixed media of these cards from the delicate illustrations made up of tiny dots, to the bursts of colour and the textured backgrounds. There is something so aesthetically pleasing about all of her work. Take a look at more here http://cargocollective.com/littledoodles
Caroline Gardner is always creating lovely cards from floral patterns to delicate illustrations and bright, bold typography. I especially like her new 'Yours sincerely' range with its funny little statements and quirky type writer text. There is a statement in there that everyone can relate too and giggle at.
Jennifer Collier. She creates them by bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching the paper and treating it as if it were cloth. It's really clever how she has managed to turn everyday objects that would often go unnoticed into pretty paper models. Check out more of her paper models here http://www.jennifercollier.co.uk/

Anna Wright has created a beautiful and funny range of cards combing illustrations with collage. I love the combination of the delicate illustrations and lovely pieces of fabric and feathers. I already have one framed on my wall and am eyeing up the hedgehogs next. Check out more at annawright.co.uk
