Track and Field Designs + This + Tabitha Emma Patterson

It's Friday again! Can you believe it? And next week brings this Alphabet5 to a close... has it gone super fast for you?? It sure has whizzed by for me!!

What are you up to this weekend? We have family coming to visit and the boys will love seeing their cousins. No doubt their visit will mean food and lots of cups of tea and ruckus playing : )

I've also had the latest Frankie magazine staring at me for a few days now, so it will be lovely to have a chance to delve into it.

The weather here is absolutely atrocious at the moment, so here's hoping it perks up a bit!

What do I have for you today? A sweet little collection that I've really enjoyed ending the week with - I hope you do too...

Track and Field Designs

I was thinking about my hubby as he leaves for work every morning with his laptop tucked under his arm - "that man needs a laptop bag" I thought to myself. So I went looking, and discovered Sasha Barry's store Track and Field Designs.

Sasha not only produces fab Laptop Bags, she has a whole collection of hand made and printed goodies for your home. You should take a peek:

(Pssst: I would have to admit that it's me that actually wants a Track and Field Laptop Bag! As design conscious as my darling Hubby is, I can't imagine him being too keen to show up on the building site with a doily on his bag : )

I don't know where or how I stumbled across Australian online store 'This'. The philosophy at This is to - bring a world of contemporary products to our market. Make them with quality that is rarely seen.

It is this 'Flinders' collection below that really caught my eye -

"In a windswept field of waving grass sits a tiny cottage with a thatched roof. On the sturdy table inside you'll find simple, utilitarian, hand made ceramics and cups full of warming food and drinks. That's the inspiration for "Flinders".

Although it has a rustic feel the execution represents pure style, made from glorious slip cast porcelain with the colour actually mixed into the clay, not just glazed on top; this results in an amazing matt texture."

Have a peek:

Tabitha's store is chock full of all sorts of goodness, from prints to brooches, to teacosy's and journals, each one beautifully crafted. You should have a look:
