i've always thought of ryman's the stationer as a shop to buy useful but dull stationery until this week when i spotted the new 'letters' range which has just arrived in stores. featuring a rainbow of coloured fonts its has been cleverley used on files, folders, notebooks and albums. i could'nt yet see it on the ryman website but they are in the shops now.
also spotted in ryman's was this cute bird design from tyrell katz on stationery and storage.
i also didnt realise you could get great british brands like caroline gardner and emma bridgewater in ryman.

SANNA ANNUKKA - m&s tins

talking of the terrific sanna annukka she has again designed several biscuit tins for marks & spencer's christmas season. there are three designs available a rectangle, a round and a square. i spotted two of them on saturday in marks & spencer at long acre in covent garden and P+P reader celine kindly sent me pictures of the third one which she had purchased last week. more packaging from sanna at M&S is expected as the christmas food arrives next month so i will keep an eye out for it.
celine also told me about this exclusive sanna mug now available at john lewis. it is part of a limited edition collection by elle deco raising money for the shelter charity and also includes a rob ryan mug.
