Although I'm a super-consumer of fiction, my softest spot is for children's books (thanks to running the kids' department at Waterstones). They are SO good. Picture books are my absolute favourite.

I've order a few Bruno Munari books for work but can't seem to shift them (customers are fools and buy the boring boring gruffalo instead)

One of my favourite picture book bod's is Polly Dunbar. She writes such sickeningly sweet stories with fairly traditional and completely lovely pictures. There's a recent series by her called Tilly and Friends. The elephant story is the BEST. Tilly the elephant tried to hide. argh it's so cute and lovely. buy it.

pretty much all of my recommend cards have the word lovely on them.

lovely lovely lovely

I am organising an arts and crafts fair. me. And it's my second but I'm a lazy blogger. The first was ace and this one is going to be bigger and hopefully even better. I get incredibly nervous about playing host but I LOVE it. Everyone looked so happy at the last one, it made me all warm and fuzzy inside.

this is the events page on facebook.

and this is the pretty flyer made for me by "wonderfullypretty" Laura (who'll be selling her wonderfully pretty knitted delights at the fair)


lovely stuff. excited as heck.
