Summer shopping treats from Blog and Buy Sale


Four times a year James and Jo of Blog & Buy Sale handpick their favourite pieces by independent artists and designers in the UK, and put them all together in their seasonal Wish List. This summer they have a great range of gifts, homeware, jewellery and furniture, and I've picked a few of my favourites, plus I thought I'd show you one of the pieces of mine that was chosen for the list, which I was very happy about!

Firstly a stunning geometric print from Kitty McCall. Titled Aso Oke, this Giclee print is inspired by African textiles, and I love the striking colour palette.

Some more wonderful geometric patterns from Fun Makes Good next, with a limited edition set of tablemats and coasters. As well as homewares, Fun Makes Good revitalise old furniture with their signature graphic upholstery.

Next I've picked out the Birds Nest Tote Bag from Particle Press. A clever twist on the ever-present bird theme, it's not just a fun print, it's also a handy bird identification guide, perfect for a bit of bird-watching.

And here's my set of bright and colourful coasters. Originally inspired by some quick doodles of ceramics made by my grandmother, they are part of my recently launched collection of homewares.
