Perhaps it’s because I am a writer by trade, but I have always loved letters and I’m a complete typography nerd so this post is dedicated to the humble letter. First up is the cool “Alphabet bag” – made of 100% cotton and, at a tenner a pop, they are are simple and cool – perfect for nipping to the veg shop or carrying your swimming things in!
If you haven’t yet come across her, Emily Peacock is doing wonderful things for the revival of tapestry. No longer the domain of medieval castles or grandma’s carpet bag, these circus-inspired tapestry cushions rock – mothballs not included. Also you have to DIY so it kind of becomes an heirloom – genius!
I spotted these bookspine bracletts on Etsy – they are the handiwork of the very talented Leah Makin whose passion for ‘papers, persnickety punctuation and discarded library books’ make for some really creative items in her Etsy shop.
While I was pouncing about on Etsy, as is customary for a Friday afternoon, I found these lovely laser-cut lovelies by Isette – she does a whole range of letters and words in lots of different colours. I love the delicate curls of the ampersand, which I rarely get to use as house-style at work doesn’t like the pretty little symbol 😦 so instead, I can wear one – they are a bargain at $24 plus P & P.
Ok so it’s not typography, but I think Isette’s cute glasses ring (below) would style up any hand ($9 USD)
Finally one more Etsy find for you – this time from the wonderful imagination of Vintage Inspiration – it’s a really cute antique typewritter key set in a novely button – how sweet! Again it’s a snip at $10 USD.
