• I love serendipity. A few weeks ago a reader and old friend left a comment on my FB page that i really should check out Amy Butler – so off i toddled to her site and ended up completely cross eyed and in awe of her happy-making products and fabrics.

    And then the weirdest thing happened – i was going through an old file filled with all the references i had when working on the initial design of this here blog and i pulled out a page from a favourite notebook i’ve had for years which had the grid lines i really wanted on iwantthat and would you believe… the page was from an Amy Butler notebook i bought and couldn’t write in because it was too pretty!) I love it when those kind of things happen!

    Any hoodlum back to Amy …she really is one prolific designer…here are some her incredibly delicious products


    I mean really…come ON, aren’t these wallpapers ridiculously amazing!


    And the rugs?!! Just ridiculous


    And of course…something for the stationery sl*ts!

    Pssst...i bought the middle notebook when i was last at Marigold – they have some Amy Butler stock. And if you’re handy, the Amy Butler site has cheap as chips patterns for sale too.

    PS. Thanks Tracy for the Amy heads up!
