i know that they are a terrible waste of paper but most are printed on recycled now and i do keep them for inspiration :)
i have a select few that i receive that never, ever dissappoint - they are the sort that are good from the moment you open them and smell and feel the wonderful matt finish paper... for me a good brochure has to have good paper.
my favourites are Toast, Cabbages and Roses, Organic Gardening, Joules, Poppy Treffry and of course Cath...
but this week a brochure arrived that has sent me all giddy - it is on beautiful paper, it is full of tempting hand made soap, amazing pottery, eco friendly garden items and the most lovely collection of plants and flowers
future primitive is the find of finds - and the blog that sits cosily behind the brochure is a wonderful and informative read - pop on over there and say hello to Tiggy x
i am about to order the sample pack of soap (fab idea) because as usual i cannot make my mind up, and the paper potter.
i intend to order plants next month as soon as i have checked what is suitable for coastal conditions.
this is one tempting brochure and website..
today has been so cold, the sort of cold that makes your nose hurt - do you know the cold i mean?
i have bravely shovelled yet more stone and hung out the washing, but for the best part of the day i have been sorting through boxes in the guest room and trying to put some order to the chaos... not an easy task.
i have also completed my egg cosy that has been niggling away in the back of my mind - it is to go with the painted egg cup made by the very talented Catherine over at Mollycupcakes.
they do sit so sweetly together....
Stephen has been braver than i and has almost completed the railings on the deck area outside our bedroom - i will pop pictures over at Sea House in the morning - it has made a big difference to the front view of the house and i am not sure that i like it...
from the inside it looks wonderful - suddenly it has created another room - a room to sit and crochet on warmer evenings....
pop over to Sea House if you have a moment as i have finally put on another post showing the almost completed bootroom.
