Handmade Mondays #3: Nook & Cranny

Hello again lovelies, this week the items are chosen from Nook & Cranny, an independent gift shop which you can find
online or in Liverpool if you're a local. It's so important to support the indie shops, and I hope you find something you like!
Nook & Cranny 'specialize in handmade UK designed products made by the best of British talent'. They also have a blog,
a Facebook page and a Pinterest (hurrah for all us addicts!).

01. Tea and Bears Mug by Nicholas John Frith
Ok, ok, I'm sorry! Another bear related item! But I could not resist this sweet little mug, and I know Mark would absolutely
love it. What better than bears on a mug for a tea-drinking-bear-loving-boyfriend?

02. Thank You Tea Towel by Hazel Nicholls
If we're going to be making tea, we're surely going to be needing a tea towel. How lovely is this pretty offering by Hazel
Nicholls? I love the colour of this one, and the sweet note of appreciation. I also really love it when type is incorporated
into the illustration/design - it looks fab!

03. Knit Your Own Zoo by Sally Muir & Joanna Osborne
If only I could knit, this would be top of my list! I thought of Jojo of Miss Jojangles when I saw this one - possibly due to her
recent swan creation! I know a lot of little (and big!) people who would love a zoo of knitted animals. With bears. Definitely
with bears.

04. Teapots A4 Notebook by Nook & Cranny
The illustrative style of this notebook is absolutely gorgeous! I adore the contrast between the brown cover and the gorgeous
soft pink. Even better is the fact that it is hand silk screen printed - how wonderful! The perfect outlet for your thoughts
and doodles. We all know I'm a stationery addict!

05. Random Notes of Appreciation by Nook & Cranny
This is probably my favourite choice, a little box of notes to make someone's day. With designs like 'You are my cup of tea'
and 'Keep smiling it suits you', I think these are just the sweetest thing I've ever seen. I would love to give/receive any of these
lovely compliments!

Which was your favourite? :)

  7. no 4 is my favourite <3 aw aw so lovely <3

  8. Fantastic I need to find stuff like this for Christmas I'm so sick of buying DVDs for my family! And maybe the notebook for myself...

  9. such a cute little post - all great unique gift ideas! love the Knit Your Own Zoo idea, so fun x

  10. Ahh I absolutely love everything you choose! :) I love these types of the things. The notebook is definitely my favorite as I love alll kinds of stationary (I usually find a lot of unique pieces at TJ Maxx because it's more inexpensive than if I were to buy it in one of the many gift shops in my hometown). I also love the bear mug- I am developing quite the obsession for pretty & unique mugs. :) xx

  11. I really wish I could knit, I think I definitely should learn seeing as I just work part nan does and she has a pattern book for Noah's Ark and all the animals, I'd love to try and knit something from there one day. By the way, are you loving the John Lewis ad? The bear! So cute xxx

  12. I love the bear mug & the 'random notes of appreciation' (such a cute idea!) but the knit your own zoo is by far my favourite, it's brilliant! I took knitting as part of my degree at uni, and yet I still cannot even knit a simple scarf - no hand co-ordination, they always just ended up full of dropped stitches & holes! I wish I could though, my gran was so good at it, she would have loved this!

  13. Nice post dear!
