A couple of Hiccups items have been featured in the bumper Summer 2010/11 edition of the Shop 4 Kids magazine. Pictured above - our Lola flag banner (AU$29.95) and Pinata cushion (AU$19.95). I love this cheerful collection of Mexican inspired products, especially that little blue chair....

I spotted these spectacular Australian native daisies in the Royal Melbourne Botanical Gardens on the weekend, after a visit to the biennial Art of Botanical Illustration exhibition. The exhibition of around 150 botanical paintings and drawings is on display until the 21st of November 2010, at Domain House, Dallas Brooks Drive, South Yarra.
A fellow (and very talented) designer at Linen House, Jacqui Baxter, has two paintings hanging in the exhibition. Hopefully she will inspire me to complete a painting in time for the next exhibition in two years! I think these paper daisies bracteantha bracteata (thanks google) would be quite a nice subject matter....

What fun (and patience!) the stylists at Anthropologie must have when creating the wonderful images found inside their always inspiring brochures?
These gorgeous creatures and equally gorgeous products (I love that mint green 'Anais' bag) can be found starring in the Anthropologie November 2010 catalogue.

Yumi is a Japanese Kokeshi doll and this picture book takes the reader on a cultural excursion into her bustling, colourful and pattern filled world.
Yumi loves to dress up, and has a fine wardrobe filled with beautiful kimonos and accessories. Today Yumi is off to a party with her friend Sakumi, and you can join them on a day filled with many adventures.
Annelore Parot's wonderful illustrations and clever paper engineering techniques combine to produce a delightful book that little fingers will love to peruse over again and again in search of the many hidden details. And much older readers with an interest in Japanese textile design will find this title becomes a favourite too!
Yumi was first published in French by Editions Milan in 2009.
