This week's blog of the week is Decor8. I'm pretty sure you will all have heard of this blog as its one of the big hitters, design-wise, but just in case you haven't, then make Decor8 your next port of call. I can pretty much guarantee it will instantly become one of your daily reads, as it has mine for the last few years and also many thousands of other people too, all eager to see what lovely finds Holly will have unearthed each day.

I've got a stinking cold at the moment, which is pretty useful when I need to spend this weekend lugging furniture across the country and manically packing for the move next week, hence the sporadic posting I'm afraid.

I really really love these vintage bus roll graphics and am pining after one for our new house, but with finances pretty tight you can imagine my delight when I came across this fab tutorial by the ever fantastic GoGoAbigail. If you have a few pennies to spend you can have a customised one made just for you by Hirondelle's Rustique.

I was trawling through Flickr the other day, which I haven't done for ages, I've been so busy and what a treat when I came across these gorgeous hand-stitched pillows from Three Red Apples who has an etsy shop and is based in Devon, UK. The perfect place to lay a weary head!
