I don’t wear much jewellery which is funny as I’m a sucker for it. Especially anything from This Charming Girl, handmade vintage and contemporary jewellery:

I came across the Eclectic Eccentricity website while looking for jewellery based on the bike trend and found a whole lot more. Every item is fabulous and I’d have real trouble picking a favourite. The bright colours used on the site just make it look all the more scrumptious!

Is it me or is there a lot of love for the bicycle at the moment? I keep seeing loads of designs on a number of items – new bikes, old bikes, penny farthings. I particularly love the old style designs such as the cushion from Rose & Grey:

Stationery items, in particular the pencil have been given new uses.

I particularly love the sharpener desk tidy – perfect for any home office…

I posted about the many products in the fantastic A Plus R store based on the theme of war a while ago (See it here). I have since come across more products based on a violent theme, most of them humorous or designed to make us think, whilst others are in aid of a good cause:

I’ve mentioned Lego a lot recently due to the ongoing trend for homewares based on games. Whilst other game imagery is still out there, Lego is racing ahead in the popularity stakes. Every time I think I’ve covered it I come across more and more items so I thought I would do a round up devoted purely to the playful plastic bricks:

Happy New Year!
Sorry this first post of 2010 has been a long time coming. I was away in the Lake District for the New Year then it was straight back to work on my return which was quite a shock to the system. Coupled with my pregnancy this year has so far mainly been taken up with sleeping! I’m back now though and ready to look at what trends are going to be big for this year. The first thing I have spotted is a follow on from last years hugely popular Alphabet trend. Having exhausted the letters, designers are now resorting to the punctuation and grammar that make up our language, with some really nice results. Enjoy!

I’ve come across this new store A Plus R which perfectly illustrates a trend I’ve seen grow and grow. Not very festive I know but when I was at Maison & Objet earlier in the year I saw a lot of ingenious products based on items of warefare – guns, bullets etc. I always meant to follow it up but never got round to it, that is until today when I came across this brilliant shop. Seeking out the newest products A Plus R is a one stop shop for everything that is currently going on in design and has so many great products I don’t think I could pick a favourite. The following items, by a number of different designers are all available from the one store and I think sum up the trend perfectly:

I’m in love with Thurley dresses!! Yes, yes this is very in advance (we’re thinking March 2011…) and there is the small matter of giving birth first but I’m starting to get excited as I found and bought my dress at the weekend! Because myself and my fiance will have been together for 11 years by the time the big day rolls around and we will ( long as all goes to plan) have had a child, we are viewing the wedding as more of a celebration than as a traditional do. We want it to have a really laid back, carefree feel, much like the images below:

I found the dress in a vintage shop and it is exactly the kind of thing I was looking for, it has that floaty, relaxed feel to it. I had previously been looking at dresses by Australian company Thurley – gorgeous, but I was having trouble finding stockists over here:


So now I just need to think about accessories and I’ve already spotted this fantastic jewellery by PastelPetals on Etsy which I think is ideal:
