Fabulous Friday Finds - Lovely Fonts

Fonts are such a key part of design and branding. When I'm making cards or even birthday invitations for the kids I spend ages working out which font looks and feels right. Unlike some I don't *hate* Times New Roman. I don't think I've ever used it but it looks ok for a printed font. You want to get me worked up? Send me something in Comic Sans. Now that is a truly evil font. I'd like to get a tee made up decrying its wickedness.

The great news for people like me who like to choose is that there are oooooodles of free fonts out there. Jump onto dafont.com or fontsquirrel.com and you can find a zillion cool and groovy options (and some shockers too!).

Anyway here are some that I think are pretty good. They are all available at fontsquirrel.com









Have a lovely weekend, x Sarah.

lovely surprise!

Please excuse my silence of late. I've been having computer problems - in fact my pc is about ready to retire permanently but I don't want to stump up to pay for a new one. So I've been meaning to write about this for at least a week... 

Out of the blue a lovely and unexpected parcel arrived in my letter box.



A gorgeous set of handmade notes including a handmade box. Thank you Amy! I love them.

Fabulous Friday Finds - swimwear

It is just so darn hot that the only thing for it is to pop on a stylish cossie and head to your nearest source of clean water. Don't forget the hat, shades and sunscreen!

Actually for Scottish-blooded whities like me it's too hot to go anywhere and do anything. This week has been a week of heat-induced migraines and nausea. I'm a delicate flower you know! But hey, nothing wrong with looking stylish while we wilt. Here are some super Australian designed swimwear for gals - big and small.



babes in the shade - really well priced kids cossies and rashies for ladies








just amazingly totally fabulous swimwear from My Sister Pat - how I covet the red polka dot one above but you'll need to save your pennies!
