Make Do And Mend books - they're everywhere! From John Lewis - to Top Shop of all places. Are teenagers really buying these things? It seems they're eating them up - alongside Stitch Your Own stationery and craft books. Also in this picture, a ration book sent to me by my Octagenarian friend Dorothy. It belonged to her brother who died at the age of 38. She wanted me to have it for my project.....he never used it.........

I've seen two great ideas for making plastic flowers recently. One in the Harvey Nichols window in Edinburgh - alongside the animals, and another in New York - in the Anthropologie window.
Window displays are full of brilliant ideas for using every-day objects in unusual ways - just look at these great creations in the Harvey Nichols shop in Edinburgh. All summer they've had wonderful windows full of incredible animals. If you look closely you'll see they've been made out of mundane materials. How about this adorable string monkey and a lively leopard pieced together from sawn-off blocks of wood. Incredibly beautiful and full of movement!
