    I missed doing my normal year in pictures review last year because it was generally a pretty terrible year for me personally and I didn’t have much to reflect on positively. I regret not doing it now though, because it’s a nice chance to look back both on the year that’s just happened and find…

  • Underground, overground

    October 2nd 2015 katie

    Wow, it’s been umm, 3 months? Sorry about that. It’s hard to actually remember what I’ve spent all summer doing – working, sewing, and sleeping probably sums it up – but I’ve been pretty lax in doing stuff and taking my camera out to document it.

    I was very happy to get a sweet email from Pui, designer behind Scout Editions, after I featured their pigeon print a few months ago, to offer up a little giveaway.

    March 11th 2015 katie

    Gosh, I’ve been really out of the blogging game lately. I had a bit of drama right after my last post, when I was trying to do some routine tidying up of my webspace and ended up corrupting the database and temporarily losing all of my posts from the last two years (your timely reminder…

    1. These surreal, 80s-inspired ‘motivational’ posters are brilliant, and you can buy them for your office walls here. 2. This Nessie ladle, having a whale of a time cruising round in your soup, is amazing. By Ototo. 3. Love The Smiths, love Peanuts, so this mashup gives me happy feels. 4. I don’t really follow…

    Time for my yearly wrap-up of photos, as I do every year (previous years here). This year has basically been brilliant for one main reason: TRAVEL. I’ve been extremely fortunate to visit Israel, Panama, Ecuador, Mexico and Paris – four new countries and four continents in a year is not bad going at all. Otherwise,…

    OK, it’s not Friday, but just squeezing in a little post of prettiness before checking out for Christmas. Have a good one, everyone! 1. Artemis’s words on winter, nature, and being a good person without religion really resonated with me. 2. It’s a bit late for Christmas gifts, but keep this in the bag for…

  • Gratuitous cat update

    October 6th 2014 katie

    It’s been a while since I posted about the cats! I snap photos of them every so often when they’re being extra-cute so thought I’d share some of them here. Yoni is fully recovered from his ordeal over a year ago – he got an all-clear from the vet and no further issues since, which…

    1. This article about the ‘real’ history behind the Madewell brand is a fascinating and balanced long read. 2. Photos of Indian cinemas. 3. ‘At the turn of the century, Louis Wain became a household name as The Man Who Drew Cats’… I like him. 4. We had a brilliant dinner at Finks last weekend…

    1. I popped into the exhibition ‘At Home with the Days’ at twentytwentyone in Islington today, a display of furniture and objects from the late designers Robin and Lucienne Day. Everything’s up for online auction, and I may be having a hopeful flutter on a few items. 2. I went to cat-themed art show over…

  • Design & Wonder at the V&A

    September 17th 2014 katie

    I went to the V&A on Monday with my sister, ostensibly to check out some of the London Design Festival installations and exhibitions. But, box of wonders that it is, we ended up having a good root around some of its other corners – there’s always something new to find and admire. My sister works…

    1. We’ve just booked to go to Mexico (DF and Oaxaca) for Josh’s 30th next month and I am SO. EXCITED. Reading my chef-crush Rene Redzepi‘s impressions of the food in the NYT only fuels it further. 2. My very favourite Soho fabric shop, Cloth House, is now selling online. Gulp goes my bank balance.…

    To get me out of a bit of blogging-block, I thought I’d share some random things from around the Internet that have made me smile lately. 1. Stacking ceramic beakers with logos inspired by Communist Poland. Surprisingly lovely. 2. I just want everything cat print from Paul & Joe Sister. 3. Bunting washi tape, ideal…
