Just in case you don’t already have enough prints around your house with words and messages on them, check out this new limited-edition, exclusive design from Gail Bryson for Pedlars.

‘Keep calm and carry on’, ‘An apple a day’, ‘Every cloud has a silver lining’, ‘It’s what’s inside that counts’, ‘Tea revives you’, ‘Make do and mend’, ‘Eat your greens’, …these wordy poster slogans are everywhere now and nice and easy to understand. Now, perhaps I’m missing something here, but what exactly does this new Bryson print MEAN? ‘We’re not here because of gravity, we’re here because we like it.’ All very strange. But it’s a poster with words on it, so no doubt it’ll sell like hot cakes anyway. – Ellie

The August issue is packed with lovely coastal makes from our style team…check out the tablecloth project below – it’s made of four tea towels sewn together. Simple, cheap and chic!

I love these nautical plates made using transfer paper from Lazertran. This is a great way to display your favourite photos in an original way.

And how sweet are these little painted pebbles and shells? I think these would make fabulous wedding favours or place markers at a dinner party.
