You really got a hold on me

Well I was supposed to take some pictures of our new wares today (all ready for our special evening that we are having sometime in the not too distant future!) & I would have posted some of the pictures right here for you to see, but it has been so grey & yucky here today & now at 5pm it's pitch black. No photos today. Here are some very sneaky peek pictures though...

Java Jive

New Jewellery, originally uploaded by Ginny swonderful.

New Papercup necklaces in store & on our etsy now!
Each comes in a lovely little hand printed Hot air balloon jewellery bag to keep it extra safe!

"Boston bean, soy bean
Lima bean, string bean.
You know that I'm not keen for a bean
Unless it is a cheery coffee bean.

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the jivin' and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!"

(Not true btw, I love all beans & would never discriminate!)

like it or not

You've got to check out this video by Architecture in Helsinki!
It'll have your legs jigging & fingers tapping as you sit at your computer with a cat on your lap, promise!

It's in the photograph

I've just come across the work of photographer Corey Arnold,

"Corey Arnold is a photographer and Alaskan crab fisherman. During October, January and February he can (or cannot) be found aboard the F/V Rollo in the Bering Sea. The rest of the year is packed with travel, gallery exhibitions, magazine and ad photography assignments with a bit of backyard gardening, cat maintenance, and skateboarding in Portland, Oregon."

A crab fisherman? Wait till you see some of his work- the Human Animals series in particular is cheeky & beautiful. I think you'll like what you see.

I like raccoons. They look like robbers. x


Here's some feisty goodness for y'all. Yes I am still on a feist binge, I wish it wasn't so darn hard to find her stuff here in lil old NZ!
This video is from Jimmy Kimmel, it's shot on a bus! I love the earnestness of her band, especially the back up vocalists. It makes me giggle!

This video for Mushaboom is most excellent too, great dancing & nice use of animated objects. (I wish my toast flew!)

Found my rosebud

I love these books from Apple of my Eye... They're ever so handsome!

girl inform me

Hello Hello, I thought I would share some images that inspire me today & give you a wee peek at some bits I'm working on...

We've got this image on our desktop right now, it makes me feel so happy... I found it on flickr, I can't remember when or where dammit, but ain't it grand?

I spent last night drawing hairy faces of my own to make into badges- here's the winning couple!

Work hard & be nice to people... Just do what it says & everything will be fine. Found via ffffound!

Lovely folky prettyness which is very Princess Tina-esq (speaking of PT, watch this space!) via ffffound also.

& if you haven't already, get yourself a copy of the beautiful Wellington mag World Sweet World & marvel at the lovely, crafty cleverness! (not to mention our very own label papercup & the super talented Liv, whose wee owls & hotties are featured!)
