I ate quite a few macaroons while I was away in France! There were shops with Macaroons of all different pastel colours and tasty flavours. This pretty shop window caught my eye...

...And the beautiful packaging

A pop of Neon lovliness!

I thought I would share some inspirational finds from my holiday in the South of France, I came across some great window displays and little treasures. There was even a little flea market by the beach! It really was the best of both worlds, inspiration for design and sun sea and sand :)

I LOVE this vintage stitched birdie cameo with a twist! The neon colours really bring it to life and give it an edge.

I spotted some BEAUTIFUL window displays wandering around the streets. I really like the mix of bright coloured polka dots stripes and vintage patterns.

I came across a shop with some cool jewellery!

These bright Circle shapes would make a great surface pattern idea!

Up-cyling-Gift Bag Idea

A quick snap of a brown paper bag that I Up-cycled.

 I made a little heart stamp out of a rubber and used some letter stamps to add a personal touch. Then tied a bit of ribbon around the handle, but you could use anything to decorate a brown paper bag and use it as a gift bag for someones pressies :)

Beautiful Packaging from M&S

I just love these ditsy geometric patterns!

Love & Toast... is all you need

I saw this lovely range 'Love & Toast' in a shop in Thame, it's by Margot Elenor the packaging caught my eye, just stunning!

Positive quotes and fun lettering :)

 I just really like the pretty, quirky lettering from Tumblr and the quote is so true :)

This lovely piece of handlettering is by a graphic designer called Ryan from Mod Cloth, he has really brought this quote to life, very clever :)
