NEW winter PLUMO pics

August 21, 2009

Something exciting has just landed on my cluttered desk – the new Plumo winter images…

COPPER SCISSORS

There are some really cute new products. Highlights include vintage copper scissors, pretty folding gift boxes, a retro pear doorstop, a haberdashery box, and fun fabric horse magnets…

If only I had seen these gorgeous Persian bird letter openers when I wrote my snail mail post last week!

PERSIAN LETTER OPENERS

Check out these fabulous Danish spoons,  the vintage Batik printing blocks (good for making your own wrapping paper) the vintage-style bird paperweight, and the fun Eiffel Tower candle stick…

If I had to pick one product from this stunning new collection, it’d be tricky, but my favourites are the colourful lampshades, shown here. I love the way they’re shot, suspended from coloured string with the stacks of bright fabrics above:

Plumo’s photography seems to get better each season. Let’s finish the week with these cheery little Matryoshka doll cushions – the perfect start to the weekend! – Ellie

I’ve fallen for the washing line print in a big way, and the little Matryoshka trimming tape is so lovely – perfect for tying round parcels wrapped in brown paper. I’ve got my eye on the apple design, too – it’s bang on trend. – Ellie
