If Papergrain had a Mascot...

My sister the vet sent me these pics of her friend's adorable new puppy. We've been cooing over the photos for days now so I thought we should share them.

Easter Cards

Easter is just over a month away- can you believe it! We have a lovely selection of Easter cards featuring cute bunnies and fluffy yellow chicks including two greeting cards based on 1972 designs by Mary Adair- love them!

The Class (Entre les Murs)

We saw The Class at the weekend and really enjoyed it. It's an award winning documentary/ film based on a year in the life of a French teacher in an inner city high school. Highly recommend it.

Love on the Underground Card

We've just added this fantastic contemporary greeting card designed by Gail Brodholt, a leading linocut printmaker of contemporary urban landscapes. Gail is a member of the Royal Society of Printmakers and this card was created for Art Angels.

New recycled notebooks from Sukie

We just love these new arrivals from Sukie. Vintage-looking little lined notebooks made from 100% recycled paper.

The Vicar's Wife's Cookbook

It's been a while since I have got this excited about a cook book. This lovely chunky book was given to me as a present at the weekend and I haven't put it down since. Written by Elisa Beynon, a Vicar's wife, this is a wonderful selection of mouth-watering yet simple recipes. We've already sampled the Haddock Pie which was a triumph.
