A while ago I featured a Dutch website (and stockist of Hiccups) where you can buy anything and everything dinosaur related. Here is another site General Robots (from Germany), which caters for fans of robots. A perfect place to find a robot toilet roll holder, designer fashion victim robots and of course, Hiccups Robotics bedlinen!

Another gem from the wonderful website ReproDepot is this out of print design by Alexander Henry fabrics. Delicate watercolour brushstrokes depict Chinese folk art motifs on a softly coloured ground - a perfect design for kid's bedrooms, as seen in these images from the French blog Mon Cabanon.
Now the hard part is choosing a colourway - green, blush or tea?.....

One of my favourite Melbourne textile designers is Nicola Cerini. Nicola's fabrics, carpets, ceramic mugs and range of bags were displayed at the Design Made Trade fair last week, all in her signature imagery of native Australian flora and wildlife.
One of her newest creations is this lovely screen-printed stool for Zaishu - 'Baw Baw Daisy'.

I spied this brand new Liberty design on the Amitie blog today, so just had to pop into their store to see it in person. Looks like someone will be doing a bit of sewing this weekend....
This wonderful design is 'Cool Coast' by Simon Hart, a British artist whose works are inspired by the harbours and villages of Cornwall.

Another vintage favourite re-issued in paperback is 'Petunia' by Roger Duvoisin. First published in 1950, this is a sweet little tale about a very silly goose who thinks she knows everything about.... well, everything. I love the front cover - so vibrant!
I ordered my copy from the lovely online store We Heart Books.

Forget the boring old sponge birthday cake - here is a super Lambert version! Fiona sent over these photos of her friends son's 1st birthday party. When he was born Fiona gave him a Lambert Lamb and it became his favourite toy, so for a special birthday treat she organized a yummy Lambert cake. A wonderful idea!
