They spend their days strutting around town in broad daylight, with a smug I-have-no-predators look on their sly little faces. They play havoc with your bin bags, terrorise your cat, and steal things. At night, they gather together to scream like banshees beneath your window so your sleep-addled brain jumps to alarming conclusions such as: A) There’s an axe murderer doing some murdering on the patio. B) Ghosts DO exist. C) Both of the above. Should I call the police?

It’s impossible to escape the little blighters this season though. Cashing in on the whole woodland trend, and enjoying their moment in the spotlight thanks to the Fantastic Mr Fox film, foxes are popping up all over the place. Visit Three Dog Party for the gorgeous letterpress buys above, then pop to Anthropologie for a foxy door knocker. You want more? For fox sake…

Check out this fox design from New House Textiles, which is printed on to trays, aprons and oilcloth fabric. Then head to Lush Designs for gorgeous foxy lampshades, tea towels, mugs and greeting cards…

Shop at Donna Wilson and Tree Fox for fox cushions of the knitted variety. Mmmmmm:

I know I’ve waffled on about Studio Nommo before, but I can’t get this ‘Foxy’ wallpaper by Ashley Alexander out of my mind. It might end up in my hallway at this rate! The porcelain fox badges (perfect for a cardi or a plain cushion) are from Alison Milner.

Let’s end this fox fest with a little look at the lovely fox clock from Sesame Letterpress

I’m looking forward to the Cabbages and Roses 10th birthday party tomorrow night (check back later for stunning shots from the new book At Home With Country), and we’re gearing up for Autumn/Winter press shows, too. Scary how time flies! – Ellie
