{Wedding Paper Parlour} Just Peachy Tags

I just adore these tags.

The pale peachy pink and hint of blue and green topped off with silk cord is just perfect.

The perfect travel tag.

Love.

{Just Lovely} Paper Drawers

Good evening all, today is a little random posting.

...In my studio {and indeed they have done a little bit of travelling as there have been three in the last 5 years}...I have always liked lots of space for flat paper {upto a1 size} and my white Ikea drawers fit the bill perfectly...a couple of years ago I pimped them up a little bit using good ol' Laura Ashley handles and can you believe that for the last couple of years I didn't put washers on the back? it was sooo difficult to do a little bit of turning to stop the oh-so irritating-door-handle-in-the-palm-of-my-hand-scenario that I had going on.

Lesson learnt...thou shalt always fix washers when fitting handles {or any other item {until the end of time} that needs washers}.

It would appear I may possibly be the only person to not be going to the fabulous Clerkenwell Design Week....

I was ok about that, until I received the following email from Turnbull and Grey..

"As part of Clerkenwell Design Week we're running a giant letterpress scrabble wall in Milliken's showroom, we'll be there on Tuesday 22 May. Drop by from 1pm and take part in our giant scrabble game. Pick your letterpress blocks, make a word, print the tiles and add them to the wall!

Milliken are based on Berry Street, all details for our workshop and all other events can be found on the Clerkenwell Design Week website.

{Type of your Life} Sans Serif Pretty

How much I adore this sans serif font is really hard to explain.

I {think} love it more than babybel.

Beautiful huh?

So what is a Sans Serif font? {Pronounced SAN-SERR-if}

This is an easy one {totally is what it says it is} this font family are typefaces that do not use Serifs {small lines at the ends of each character}.

The most commonly used Sans Serif fonts include Helvetica, Arial, Avant Garde and Geneva. {Serif fonts that you may use {unknowingly} include Times Roman, Courier, New Century Schoolbook, and Palatino.}

Sans Serif fonts are a little more difficult to read and interpret than the traditional Serif fonts so for this reason {amongst any others including design preference} they are used most often for short text layouts..like a headlines, title or caption {as illustrated beautifully for us in the picture shown}.

What's your favourite Sans Serif?
