So, our reno is creeping along at half the pace of a snail. While it’s frustrating that we seem to have more problems than solutions, at least it means we can spend more time looking for fixtures and finishes.

Brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favourite things…The only problem is, this isn’t actually mine! It’s a present I bought for a friend’s little boy.

I was so excited when I found this Charley Harper Memory Game, but when it arrived in the mail from We Heart Books, I was….well, rapt! Wrapped with such love, it’s clear that whatever We Heart Books do, they do it with heart.

I’ll be back We Heart Books – if only to get my own brown paper package tied up with string!

PS: Check out We Heart Book’s idea for Charley Harper wall wart using this set of memory cards.

It’s hard to believe, but this incredible vision is actually a bank!

I really like this poster by Mike Monteiro.

Oh, and this one. And this one.

Yeah, right?!
