wooden bookmarks by Elsita

I've been watching designer and illustrator Elsa Mora's Elsita shop on Etsy for a while now. I'm totally fascinated by her intricate papercuts and can't imagine the amount of work that goes into creating these pieces, not to mention the precise craftsmanship. These laser cut wooden bookmarks are the perfect gift for bookworms.

These super fun felt cushion covers by Chicago-based DiffractionFiber made me smile this morning. Made from eco felt (100% recycled plastic bottles), they bring out my inner geek.

NEW tea towel designs available from mengsel


These lovelies are available to purchase in my etsy and folksy shops now. New designs include moka express, roosters, owl, cactus and robots. All of my designs are screen printed by hand onto 100 % cotton, using water based inks. No toxic chemicals used. They are safe to wash in the machine at a temperature that is below 40 degrees. Not only safe for the precious tea towels, but also better for the environment. Washing by hand would be best though...

Hope you like them and please don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested in different colours!
