These shimmery chocolate leaves from Yummy Mummy are very classy looking. I can see them decorating a chocolate cake with fluffy white icing. I'd make some today if we had some cool leaves here in the desert..sigh.
This clutch purse from Whip Up, looks pretty easy to make, even for the novice seamstress. I'm pretty sure the fabric used in the tutorial is one of the prettiest patterns ever. The clutch purse would be a cute way to wrap small gifts or gift cards for the upcoming holidays.Orla Kiely baby books? Yes please! Why? Because good design should be introduced at an early age. One is called Colours and the other Numbers. They have gorgeous, classic Orla illustrations and in amazing colors. Looks like Amazon in the US has them available for pre-order..but they won't arrive until April 2012. Sad.
