New for Winter 2012

We've been busy on our new range for winter including 2 new products and some additions to our Wrap and card ranges....


These are our new notebook packs. They are the perfect size (A6) for a back pocket, whether you're shopping, birdwatching, doodling or well, just about anything. We've included a new colour way of our signature Foliage and Birds print and Snail print for these as well as a version of our fox design. As with all our paper products, they are completely kind to the environment made with 100% recycled paper and printed with eco friendly inks. They are packaged in a bio-degradable bag. At £7.95 we think these make a great stocking filler too. Available now at


We've pulled out all the stops (and broke some of our rules) to bring you these trays as a web exclusive. They are the only things we sell that are made outside the UK but they are beautifully hand crafted and a product we just had to have in our collection. They are made in Sweden from sustainable Birch Wood and are donned in our new Foliage and Birds colours. They are a handy 20 x 27cm (perfect for 2 to 3 cups and a small fan of biscuits) and, almost unbelievably, they are dishwasher safe too! Available soon here

Christmas Cards and Wrap

Our theme this year is Partridge and Pears which we have added to our cards and wrapping paper ranges. We have also added a new Robins card to match our Robins wrap. View full range at our shop

New stockists

We've added a few new stockists over the last couple of months that really cover the top, middle and bottom of the UK spanning 775 miles.

Our most Northerly shop in the UK is now Longship on beautiful Orkney. They are stocking our cards, wrap, lavender bags, place mats and cushions

The middle is represented by Nottingham Contemporary who have reliably informed us our cards are selling like hot cakes and have recently added cushions to their shop.

Down South there is the superbly named Pebble and Dash that will be opening soon in Herne Bay, Kent, selling our cards and lavender bags.

We'll post it for you!

The price of postage is going through the roof but we're not going to let a little thing like that get in our way! All our cards are now available to send direct to your recipient with your own personal message (in our very best hand writing) at no extra cost, saving you the cost of a stamp.

Baby Style File - Alphabet print

Baby Style File is the place to go for style-savvy parents. Their taste is impeccable (but we would say that wouldn't we). I'm glad they mentioned the colours as it took a while to perfect them. There are pink and blue versions of the print also available from our print page.

Love Bugs Card

We have a pink version of our Love bugs cards for Valentines day exclusive to our Not on the high street shop. You can find the card here.
