Once upon a time there was this shop that had lovely retro finds. In fact when my son was born he and I spent many a day in it passing the time and getting to know one another. This was because it was owned by a good friend and we (well I) thought it was far more exciting than sitting at home. This shop was Mint. Sadly Rhys got bigger and I went back to work and Kirsty closed it due to the lure of the corporate world. (Well actually the only sadly bit of that last sentence was Mint closing.) Gladly she regained her senses and has revived Mint. Not only did Rhys and I have a wonderful time there I also bought some gems from there. Here is a peek and don't forget to have a look at Mint here.

I have been working with a talented friend of mine, Jessica Nicholson. She has been doing all my illustrations for my Icon Africa range. We started off with South African flowers, then the birds came and from that it lead to the postcards. We think they are great. The flower and bird illustrations are for a range of wooden brooches and fridge magnets. Here are the postcards.
