These prints by London-based illustrator Spencer Wilson (co-founder of Peepshow Collective) caught my eye. They are letterpress planographic prints, and have been printed on 300gsm Somerset satin printing paper. How cute is the Strongman print?!

Speaking of all things lovely, these Japanese Good Wishes postcards caught my eye recently. They were created by Julie LaBulle (Guilia Dolci), an Italian illustrator based in London and are being sold through UK-based Our Shop. Each card features a unique Japanese icon that represents courage, strength, good luck, good health and prosperity. Each set comes with five individual cards that have been printed on a risograph, and Our Shop are donating all of the profits to the British Red Cross/Japan Tsunami Appeal. You can purchase the sets here.

First up is this delightful Time to Brew Up print by Cheltenham-based designer Laura Seaby, and is ideal for any tea-drinking household (like mine!). The print has been printed in two shades of green on white fine art paper. I love it!

So that little Friday afternoon admission brings me onto the subject of the new Habitat Spring/Summer 2011 collection, which features three different ranges - English Coast, Tea Party and The Mediterranean. They all look fabulous, but it's the English Coast collection that's floating my boat the most. Maybe all those years of living on the English coast have had some sort of influence on my aesthetic taste, who knows, but the bright and colourful range, with its focus on blues and greens, is just so appealing.
You can check out the new collection for yourself over at the Habitat website. Happy browsing and weekending all!

Aren't they just lovely items? Home Beautiful magazine obviously think so, as they are featuring the girls in the issue that's out in July. Such awesome news!

Some of the US state mottos are pretty bizarre, but I have to admit they're a little more interesting than the ones displayed on our number plates here in Australia (i.e. The Smart State, On the Move, etc.)!
A new piece will be added each week day, so check the Fifty and Fifty site to keep up to date with the progress.
