CARDS - tesco

I really fell in love with the floral print on this card spotted in UK supermarket Tesco. The lovely print is bold and graphic but with a hand made feel. Here are some more of the recent design arrivals at Tesco snapped in my local branch....

GIFT WRAP - marks & spencer

And staying with the theme of greetings design here are some lovely new bags and wraps just in at Marks & Spencer.


And finally today here a few other pics of products spotted in stores lately. Above are butterfly and chevron mugs snapped in Oliver Bonas, and below folk style canisters seen in TK Maxx

STORE SNAPS - peacocks

It is the last week of P&P before my summer break and I wanted to say goodbye to high summer by posting as many of the snap shots I have taken recently as I can.  Especially the fashion prints that have caught my eye this summer starting with this striking print on a kimono style jacket spotted in Peacocks. It certainly was a bold design and a brave fashion forward purchase by the Peacocks buyers, but it seems to have paid off as it sold out quickly in my local store. Before they went I managed to get a few pics of the lovely patterns.
