10 Things I Learned & Loved This Weekend

1. Grouping together these perspex candlesticks makes for a lovely autumn vignette.
2. I learned how to update my kitchen cupboards by covering them in yellow vinyl; a super affordable way to achieve a new look.
3. A pair of stripy straws makes Saturday night cocktails even more fun!
4. I made cake pops for the first time on Sunday.
5. Seeing a model wearing a yellow jacket in At Your Leisure's fourth zine reminded me how much I like this look.
6. Jamie Oliver's food range packaging design is spot on - and too good to resist!
7. I really enjoyed watching The Perks of Being a Wallflower on Friday night.
8. I fell head-over-heels in love with these dipped plates.
9. Amy Borrell illustrates charming prints like this Fat Cat.
10. This yellow twill blanket is winging its way across Europe to my office as I type!


  1. Love that yellow striped throw -- it's so cheery!

  2. I love that you are so productive on weekends.. For both of us. I have got to try the Jamie Oliver preserves... Mmmm. Love all that sunshiney yellow..

  3. Oh the bright vinyl looks great!

  4. loving all the yellows and you have got to show us how you use that yellow vinyl! I love Amy's illustration as well. Heading over now to check it out. Happy Monday!

  5. I'm with Tim... I love the yellow vinyl you've put on your cupboards. Would love to know where to buy it, and how easy (hopefully) the process is. x

    1. Hi Vic! Thanks for the kind words. Sure, here's the link: It was a little tricky to start with (and you definitely need two people, I discovered!) but once I figured out a method of starting in the centre and working outwards using a ruler to smooth over, it was easier. Good luck!

  6. The cupboards look great Will, instant cheer!

  7. Someone is in a yellow/blue combo mood today ;-)
    I love that illustration.

  8. I have started to stick straws in everything too- they definitely jazz up the most simple drink. Thanks for reminding me to read The Perks of Being a Wallflower- I bought it in NYC and have yet to get round to it!

  9. Hej, can you send a link to these vinyl coverings for the cupboards? This would be a great idea for my bathroom!

  10. Great colours! Loving the dipped plates! hx

  11. Loving those candlesticks Will! Have a great week :)

  12. Oh so many nice things in this post. I have been a fan of Fine Little Day for a while already but I hadn't seen that orange throw before.

    I'd love to see more of your ktichen now that you've updated it with such a great colour :)

    And that Fat Cat illustration would be so perfect for a nursery :)

  13. I also have the candlesticks in my periscope - stille considering as I most of all love the Kubus light in white.

  14. OHHHHHH i love these adorable candlestics!!!

  15. omg i'm obsessed with those candleholders!! thanks for the zine mention! :)

  16. Love the idea of covering your cupboards in vinyl (perfect for a renter like me)! I am a fan of anything to do with Jamie Oliver too – spend hours in his Clapham store ogling at the packaging!

  17. So it was a very yellow weekend! I love the throw and your cabinet update.

  18. Bravo on the cupboard refresher! Love the yellow too and that blanket looks so soft to the touch!! Loving the print illustration too; thanks for sharing Will! Happy Monday! XX
