Bye bye from Wooden donkey

Hi all, I see that I haven't written any posts since early May, a couple of weeks before my little boy was born. It has been a very busy year for me and sadly I have decided to close Wooden donkey as I no longer have the time to maintain it properly. I have loved scouring the country for exciting finds to bring you and I hope you enjoy any treasures purchased in my little shop. I have sold my remaining stock to the lovely people at H is for Home so if there is anything you regret not buying, do get in touch with them. I will be keeping my Wooden donkey Flickr account going, to share some of my own little treasures with you (and my Twitter account too but that will just contain my daily ramblings). Thanks again for all your support. Emma x

roddy&ginger - new products

I'm a big fan of roddy&ginger's work and was excited to see their new designs, including this one of a hot-air balloon. I'm eight months pregnant and have been learning lots of relaxation techniques to help me through the birth, one of which involves visualising balloons floating away, so this design seems made just for me! (And it would look so nice on our grey sofa...) Cushions cost £26 and a print of the same design £35. Both are available from their online shop

Herzensart by Sandra Monat

I just discovered a wonderful site called Herzensart, set up by the talented designer and handcrafter Sandra Monat. She works from her study in Bonn, Germany where she produces one-of-a-kind soft toys, as well as printed stationery and some wonderful melamine ware for children, much of which is available to buy in her online shop. Her site is definitely worth a visit!

Alice Melvin

I'm lucky to have lots of talented creative people visiting my shop and one such person is Alice Melvin. I love her style of illustration and couldn't resist buying a few things from her shop this evening. Her 'Cut out & make' range of greeting cards are so much fun and the 'Cut out and sew' owl puppets are very cute indeed. Definitely worth a visit!
