Washi Wednesday
This week's Washi Wednesday is from Zoë. We have already had washi-covered pegs, but this time we've gone miniature! The pegs Zoë used have a teeny magnetic strip on the back, so can attach mini notes or labels to appropriate metal surfaces, like say fridges or cake tins. Mmmm....cake....

Well I don't know what she's on about, all these pegs look massive to me Beryl.

Tiny little people
It's not just me! Other people think tiny little people are cool too.

How awesome is it that she knits?

Redford v DiCaprio
It's a tough one isn't it?

For the folks at 'Pulp the Classics', the choice was simple:

Looks like Robert Redford. Rocking a mac.

Clearly, I'm going to have to go and see what Baz Luhrmann has in store for us before I decide which of the two makes a better Gatsby, but I have a sneaking suspicion it's going to be Leo.
You still have plenty of time to read 'The Great Gatsby' before our next book club...
Berylune Book Club update
I have the following Book Club announcement from Zoë:
The first Berylune book club meeting went very well and was good fun. There were five of us which meant we were able to have a good discussion of our chosen book, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. If you haven’t read The Book Thief then we can highly recommend it!
We now have the difficult task of choosing our next book. We came up with a...
What. A. View.
We have a new view from the counter! Frankly, it rocks. I find myself spacing out, trying to choose which thing I would like to take home with me.


We have some new stuff! I've been meaning to photograph it for a couple of weeks and have been failing to find time. Sorry!  

We have Paddywax candles. They smell divine and come in the prettiest jars. They are made from soy wax, so you can wash the...

We like rainbows around here. Some of us more than others:

Just about everything in our shop is sorted in to rainbow order. If ever you're a bit bored and fancy baking Amy's noodle, pop in and mix up the order of things. It's a source of endless amusement.

You may have noticed from the above rainbow of satchels that we have a new colour in stock.

Purple. Oh yes.

It's rich and beautiful and we love...
Ok, it's a bit sad but....
I had a little walk around the charity shops in town earlier on. It's a lovely bright, sunny day, although a little chilly. I popped in to the Cancer Research shop on Bedford Street to find a special offer on paperback books - 4 for £1! Bargain.

Amy and I are a bit sad and we read teen fiction. I would apologise, but I'm really not sorry. They had all 4 Twilight books, and as Amy doesn't own them I...
Speaking of books...
Pride & Prejudice is probably one of my favourite books. I read it every couple of years. I can't tell you why I love it, I just do. Did I love it before the fabulous BBC mini series?  I like to think I did, but Darcy IS the young, svelte, Colin Firth in my head. Imagine my excitement when I found these!

The range is called 'Pulp the Classics', and so far it only consists of Pride & Prejudice, but...
