Blossom and Bill (from the Isak Collection) are just about household names. This free-spirited, nature loving (and nude) couple can be found in homes around the globe - there's even a look-a-like competition on their Facebook page!

Who is Blossom and Bill? They are characters created by Sandra Isaksson - the designer behind the Isak Collection. Along with Blossom and Bill, Sandra creates a fresh, bright and modern range of gifts and home accessories. Since its launch in 2006 the Isak Collection has grown to include, serving ware, prints and posters, wallpapers, blankets and more - take a peek...

I love Sofia Arnold's Animal Parade in her Icebear store.. The Animal Parade is a set of five silk screened softies all joined together by a fancy ribbon. Sofia obviously has a love for printing and pattern and you can see it in her work.

"I've recently started silk screen printing. It's the best. I want to be printing when I am ninety years old. I want to be printing when I fall over dead, for that matter. Let's just hope there are many prints between now and when that happens."

Check it out...
