I love tea parties. I do. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is just an extra excuse to throw one, as far as I’m concerned. If you’re not convinced, hopefully these images will twist your arm:
1. These teacup and teapot rings can be bought separately, but they clearly belong together. By JodiaAnna.
2. This is a seriously elaborate set of paper cake toppers! I love it. By 3 Blonde Bears.
3. This photo was taken by me, peering into one of the window displays at Harrods. I wanted to jump right in.
4. If you’re up for a slightly subversive Jubilee weekend, you can by a Queen jelly mould, some royal temporary tattoos…and also some sick bags, in case things get out of hand. All by Lydia Leith.
5. A set of teabags from The Cake Nest. The queen’s in very good (if occasionally fictional) company!
Have a lovely Jubilee weekend, wherever you are!

In other words, things that remind me of jelly: brightly coloured, transparent, and probably a bit wobbly.
1. Luminous perspex panes in Itsu.
2. Jason Hackenwerth’s balloon installation for Selfridge’s, London.
3. ‘Jelly Baby 3′, by Mauro Perrucchetti.
4. Translucent and sticky dumpling pastry.
5. A filmy pink window at the Fashion and Textile museum.
p.s. Don’t forget to enter my prizedraw!

My mailbox has gotten some serious action this week. This makes me happy, because we all know that snail mail is the best. check it out:
1. This was a gift from me to me. I’m very generous like that. (It’s a jelly mould.)
2. This was written on a parcel I received today. Are you curious?
3. It contained beautiful postcards by Natsuko Otani and a cheeky little face…
4. I won this Gemma Correll tea towel from Illustration Rally’s charity raffle!
5. I also received this postcard. I’m hoping it’s because I love Amy.
Other things I received in the mail this week were bills, and a lovely dress from ASOS which didn’t fit. But let’s not dwell on that.
p.s. I never knew a smily corgi could bring me so much joy.
