Badge r

Car boot sales are amazing - a staple event of the British summertime. You should check them out if only to see all the pugs that frequent them! They are the perfect place to pick up those rare cast offs that people have had stored in drawers for the past 20 years. Pictured is a collection of badges we bought this morning for 40p - now that's going to make your day! I wonder who thought to put 'I heart Deutsch!' on a badge!? Brilliant stuff!

Things I Like

I bought this super colourful print recently - it turned up, and it is even more awesome in the papery flesh! It's called 'Things I Like', and it literally contains all the things I like - what a coincidence! It was created by US graphic designer Richard Perez (aka Skinny Ships) in a limited edition of 100, and I can't wait to get it on the wall. You better snap one up before they all go!

Chutney, Or Not Chutney?

I don't profess to having green fingers - not really. I like gardening, but everything I do is a bit hit and miss. From a vegetable \ fruit point of view I don't often have much luck - killing things off before I get a taste. That's why this year I'm quite excited by the promise of tomatoes - the third year I have planted them, and hopefully the first year I'll get to eat some. If you are lucky enough to have a greenhouse, you are probably eating yours by now, but this British weather of ours isn't helping with outdoor growing. Fingers crossed for a warm spell to give them a little burst.

Shake Your Coconuts!

I can't believe that you all managed to keep this one a secret for this long! I was listening to today and out of the blue came a song called 'West Coast' by Coconut Records. My little ears were so excited they started to research the band straight away. I was really surprised to find that the only member of the band is the seemingly multi talented Jason Schwartzman - the man actor from awesome films like Marie Antoinette and Rushmore! Check out the brilliant video for the track (which was filmed in an super modern looking museum in Germany). The even better news is that there are two albums - both available for download from Amazon! Enjoy!
