Weekend Wonderings

You know that person who you never know what to buy as a gift for? Or that couple whose wedding you are going to who you want to buy something different for?

Stop browsing right now. STOP I TELL YOU.

Because I have the answer. (Via Laura)

Buy them one of these prints:

Or any of the other glorious prints that they have. I’m looking longingly at the utterly beautiful C is for Charm of Finches¬†and the wonderfully titled E is for an Embarrassment of Pandas

Show me someone who doesn’t love a good collective noun? A beautifully illustrated collective noun print. A beautifully illustrated collective noun with your initial on. It surely cannot be any better than this?

So there you have it – with that and Mr B’s reading spa, your presents are sorted for life. You’re welcome.

    You are indeed, very welcome.

    I can’t wait to move house. Have a feeling my study will house a fair few of these, especially a Bouquet of Hummingbirds. It’s just perfect!

    There’s not just animals, A Congeries of Wizards for any potter fans?

    Flamingos. We do love a stand of flamingos. We have our own collection of photos with flamingos in zoos all over the place, and these wall stickers will soon be in our walls. We got them long ago in Habitat (Barcelona) when we were dating but knew we would one day live together.
    I need that flamingo stand print.

    Totes lush. The hedgehog one’s super-cute. Ifact, they’re all lush. I like all the geeky and slightly 70s looking constellations ones, too.

    I adore these. Would it be wrong to choose my child’s name around the poster I like…?
