Greetings Part Three

A few new card designs ready for the weekend.
I recently sent some post and Royal Mail spoilt it by loosing it. I even made the best wrapping paper/envelope to send it in, took blooming ages, but the post man obviously disliked it. The content was quite important also and cannot be replaced.....i guess it's my own fault for trusting the postie and not deciding to send it recorded delivery.
So i hope you have much more luck than i did when sending post to your chosen beauty.
Happy posting.

(ps. This is my 100th post. That's exciting)

Ruby Blue Recommends

This week i bought an album on a whim simply because i liked the cover and it was £4.99 in the sale (who doesn't love things with cats on right!?).
And do you know what, i'm so glad that i did because i think i've fallen head over heals in love with it!
It has also inspired me to have a little 'ruby blue recommends' section at the cash register to spread the love of my current favourite music.
It is with much adoration that i pass these nostalgic summer melodies on to you to nurture and parent for yourselves.

Below is one of my favourite tracks off the debut album called 'Paper Boat' and has pretty much become my new repeat track. I hope you enjoy it as much as i do :)

Man Things

So followers of our blog will know by now that i love keeping things for myself, instead of selling them in the shop as is my latest keep...woopsie.
- A 1950s mens shaving mirror, complete with light and charger.
I'm pretty much overjoyed with it; and had to rearrange my dressing table in order for it to look its best. From older posts you know how important being a gentleman is to me, and every gentleman needs gentlemanly things right? When am i ever going to come across another one of these? So it's only right that is has remained firmly mine.... or that's what i'm telling myself anyway.

New in this week are these delightful tin advertisements. Below are my favourite four out of the seven that are in stock. Around postcard size these little beauts will be a welcome addition to any kitchen or collection cabinet.

Keaton Henson

Keaton Henson is the newest member of the Motive Sounds family. He is truly amazing and definitely worth a listen or listens. Not only is he a slamming musician but his videos are a work of art, as are his actual works or art.... pretty jealous of his talents really, damn him.
Stay tuned for more information about him as we'll be stocking his incredible music very soon!

Money Money Money...

This utterly delightful vintage till is my new pride and joy toy! I think it is impossible for me to love it any more than i actually do. Why don't you make a boy happy and come and buy neato treats so i can play on it :)

Mix Tapes

Reading Dexter, making mix tapes and watching Six Feet Under is the only way to spend a Saturday night in. Bliss i'd say.
