Colourful Totoro

To match my Totoro card, look what arrived yesterday from my wonderful friend Ellen Croshain!

A little book for big ideas

The notebook says “A little book for big ideas” and it’s from Sass & Belle Vintage, which is just perfect timing as my current notebook is nearly out of space…

(Also, Ellen’s got a new book out which you definitely need to get – it’s a sequel to Cruelty but can be read as a stand-alone, and it’s got a whole load of sex, double-crossing, angst and turmoil – and I adore it!)

Totoro’s sitting next to Appa on my bed (yes, I have a cuddly Appa – and a Pikachu too!) and is definitely brightening the place up. Next up, soots!
