WINKS – weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we’ve found and things we think you’ll want to see. If you’d like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we’ll link you. So what’s in this week?



  • James Ward illustrates plates. Big bad bears and wee small wrestling mice with a thing for sweets. I can’t make up my mind which one is best for my husband but I’m definitely having the wolf! Etsy store here.



  • Loving these pure hemp rugs hand woven in India for cloth. Julie Paterson’s pared back landscapes, simple abstract shapes in bold earthy colours. Want to rub my toes on these.

    • Gorgeous furniture by Town & Country Style.  French provincial to industrial and based in Armadale, Victoria. For those Aussies craving that townhouse/country house vibe.

  • Where are the blogs? Where are the reading guides? I have dozens of wonderful new blogs saved up ready to go but when? I’m moving in the next couple of months so winks will become reading guides 🙂 and I can stress out over packing and moving and you can chill with lots of lovely blogs. Just a little longer dear readers. But I couldn’t wait to share these two. Click on the banners above and enjoy!

What a nice surprise! Thank you so much for your recommendation!

Sarah says:

The plates are the best, I just checked out his entire collection on the etsy store, so many fabulous offerings. Thanks for sharing!

Luke of Grub St says:

I think if you replaced the bear on the plate with one well-known labrador and changed the "I smell cakes" to "I smell bacon", it would be very apt… 😉

Aw, thank you so much for the shout out!! 🙂 xo
