My dear old school friend Sara has just started a Etsy shop called Ladycraft selling her wonderfully original handcrafted pieces. While I've always been interested in interiors, Sara's love is fashion, and it shows - she's the best dressed friend I have!
She's based in Melbourne, Australia and you can visit her at Abbotsford Skirt & Shirt market held 3rd Sunday of the month where she sells her lovely wears under the banner of Saffron.
So I am currently 6 months pregnant and facing the dilemma of decorating the nursery without knowing the baby's sex...
I've been struggling to find a lovely rocking chair, and frankly the traditional nursing chairs are just too awful. I couldn't entertain the idea of buying one for a second!
However, Nicola Wilkes from Wales at Home made a fabulous suggestion - an Eames Rocker. So I found one on ebay for £100 - problem solved. Perfect!

During my travels around New Zealand in January, the most spectacular light kept popping up in bars and restaurants all around the country. I vaguely tried to find it on return to the UK but have only just discovered the designer.
So now all I need is a UK stockist...
