While researching organic linen I came across a couple of London shops that sell it. I knew they wouldn't be selling metres of it as I need but they looked like lovely shops I decided to visit anyway :) Summerill & Bishop and Daylesford Organic...pictures and thoughts below!
Unplanned, I spotted a Cath Kidston shop and as I've never been in one I popped in for a look...too girly pink and floral for my taste but I quite like this elephant print :) and I did get myself a nice bright blue doorstop.

Now I'm making linen blinds with shadow casters attached behind. Trying to sort out the sustainability of linen...so far I think it's pretty good...apart from the bleaching...but I want it white! Thinking thinking.

I saw this lamp a while ago but never mentioned it...it's simple but clever and sweetly stylish :) it's a plain blue lamp with stripes for sea levels in day and when it is switched on but when you switch it off phosphorecent sea creatures glow in the dark as a night light for children :)
Recycled paper lasercut lampshades. Sort of like something I might have done which makes me feel a little unoriginal! :) my stuff is more surreal and illustrative and less 3 dimensional but really similar...lets hope this inspires me to innovate :)
