Anyone who knows me well knows that of all the animals, amongst my favorites are cute birds (top of the list are the European robin, chickadee and blue tit!). I even have a product range I invented called Chirpy Chums. So when I saw some of these gorgeous fabric bird placemats on Zazzle I liked them straight away!
NB. If you click any of the placemat pictures, they lead to zazzle.com which states the price in American dollars but Zazzle ship internationally. If you switch the “.com” to your country’s address eg “.co.uk” for British visitors, it will tell you the price for your country.
Cute Blue tit Bird placemats
Can you see why this bird is one of my favorites? :)

I’m quite excited about a new design I’ve made today! I was experimenting with floral designs inspired by vintage art and after playing around with some rose patterns I ended up making these flowery rose plates:
Just wanted to share with you because I was so happy with how they came out! :) I can totally imagine these floral plates being used at a dinner party or a summery garden party!

Yes, even sandwiches can be cute!
You may have seen pictures of the amazing bento box art that some Japanese mothers make for their kids to take to school. But cute sandwiches don’t just have to be for kids! In fact, tiny adorable sandwiches have been part of the time-old English tradition of Afternoon High Tea for many years.
Why not get some sandwich cutters of various shapes to make your next picnic or garden tea party a little more fun and interesting?
You can get a bunch of cute sandwich cutters in various shops. Here are some of my favorites from Amazon.com: (more…)
