Papered Parlour Open Studios

Yesterday I popped into the Papered Parlour's Open Studios {I took an excellent photography class there, with Sam Roberts and Louise, who runs the Parlour.} There were stalls from lots of the designers who have a studio space there, as well as a few other visitors.

Illustrations from Catalina Echeverri, a children's book illustrator {blog.}

Prints from All Cats Are Grey, {blog.}

Cushions and other lovely textiles from Maria Hatling {such a cute picture on her homepage, you must look. Shop, here.}

There was a stall run by the Letter Lounge, a fun project whereby you are provided with everything to sit and write a letter, and it is even posted for you! They have more events coming up soon.

Cakes, yum.

I love the sentiment in the top picture as I love wind and rain. When I was a child I used to sit outside on our back step in a sleeping bag when there were gale force winds. That sounds rather odd when I write it, and where on earth was my mother...? Anyway, these lovely napkins {love the robins} are from Devon-based Made with Love.

I only intended to pop in for 5 minutes, but ended up browsing for quite a while. It was a fun afternoon! If you've taken a class there, I would love to hear how it was.

I loved the robin! I bought one of the robin tea towels. I'm not sure who I am going to give it to yet, but thought it was just so lovely!

I love printed napkins, I have a thing for them. And robins to boot, I hope they ship to Australia.
