I've been nerdily drooling over Jessica Hische's Daily Drop Cap project over the last few weeks so I thought I'd share a little typographic joy. Every workday she posts "a new hand-crafted decorative initial cap for your enjoyment and for the beautification of blog posts everywhere."
I have such a design crush on her.

Yellow, white, grey, dots and geckos!
What is there not to love about this fabric?
I am still trying to persuade the other half that we should use yellow in the study. It turns out that he was right to protest about the saplings wallpaper, the colour in the sample (while not hunger inducing) was too dark.
But imagine this as curtains. mmmmmmm
Wish me luck!

It's annual basil death week in my house.
No matter how much love, water, care and affection I lavish on my favourite herb it always dies in October.
Last year's plant had gotten so big it had BARK.
October came, and boom! - it was just twigs in a pot.
This years plant has a few wilted leaves left, but I can feel it rebuking me every morning.
Any basil resurrection tips anyone?

"Newmarket Brocante" is a brand new new furniture and antique market in the Co-Op Building on Newmarket Square, Dublin 8 that will take place every 3rd Sunday of the month, starting this Sunday.
At this event you will find a selection of second-hand, refurbished, antique and hand-crafted stuff for your house and garden. There will be bargains, freebies, café, good wholesome food and chilled out tunes all under the one roof.
Sounds good to me!

While we were away over the weekend we had to ring reception twice after being outsmarted by sanitary ware and light switches.
It's an uncomfortable feeling when bathroom fittings are more sophisticated than you are...

I've just started working from home so doing up the office is high on my procrastination list.
I love yellow and white at the moment so I nearly fell out my chair when I saw this wallpaper yesterday. Unfortunately my excitement was not shared by the other half.
“That colour makes me think we don’t have enough food”
Not exactly the response I was expecting.
Perhaps a sample will make him feel less hungry?
