If we could have ANYTHING, Anything in the whole wide world; we'd want these things please...
A classic vintage car (in mint green!)
A Mulberry Bayswater Satchel in Pheasant Green (or any Mulberry please)
A dreamy house in a tree... Magic!
and a belated invite to Hogwarts (we won't mind being 'mature students' - we'd look ace in the uniforms!) - if that's a stretch we suppose we'd be happy with a Studio Tour or a trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter...
A stunning vintage French Sofa, all our favourite Interior Styling features delights such as these. This blue one would look SO good in the Twee Living Room!
A fully operational TARDIS. To travel through time and space... We'd hit the 60s first, Cavern Club Beatles gigs! Then maybe saunter off to the 1800s and get a little wild with Wilde... Aaah the possibilities! (we probably wouldn't complain if you threw our very own Matt Smith in with the TARDIS too Santa!)
If we can't have a dimension hopping Police Box to travel in (hmph!) we'd settle for some adorable bikes!
whispers* and a plane that will fly to the moon?
Oooh and we could do with some new art. An original 'Blue Period' Picasso would look fabulous above the fireplace.
& if, Santa Baby, we've not completely spent all our Christmas allowance could you send some radioactive spiders our way? Super Powers would be... well, super!

Available in two colour schemes, you'll find these on our Etsy shop (or if not - email and we'll get these re-listed for you!)
We recently had a brief to design a customised 'Hey Jude' print as above. If you have any requests for lyrics to your favourite song, contact us and we'll see what we can do. We love working with you to create unique prints, special to you.

We thought we'd take some inspiration from Little M's bookshelf and share the gorgeous whimsical children's of Oliver Jeffers. Beyond charming, his tales of friendship and self discovery warm the very depths of your heart, and can honestly make you both laugh and cry.
Our absolute favourite is Stuck, stictly speaking it's not on Little M's bookshelf yet as it is to be a birthday gift, but that hasn't stopped us leafing through it several times already... It's a giggle on every page, such funny twists and unexpected little turns - honestly worth owning even without a Little One around, the illustrations (as in all of Jeffers' books) are stunning! A future classic for sure. Can't wait to read it to Little M! :)
Imagine our delight when we discovered that some of the little gems from his books, the adorable characters and objects have been transformed into stunning jewellery by Digby & Iona... Eek! Too lovely!
Find the jewels here
Hope you've got a nice weekend planned sweets :)

Hope you're all very well today. Been a funny old week - after Rhi & Little M being under the weather last week, Lola's gone and got poorly too! Get well soon Lola!
Anyways, we've been thinking... It's probably about time we asked if anyone would like to share the love and join us up on the sidebar over there... We've had a few people enquire already and expressing interest in sponsoring us... It's been on the plan for a while - but we feel its the right time now to bring others on board the Good-Ship Twee for the month of December.
You provide us with 180x150 of your finest pixels (or give us an image/logo and we'll fiddle till it fits) and we'll pop you up. We're offering the super duper introductory bargain price of just £5 and as its our first time we'll also give you sponsor space in January completely free - because we're nice like that :)
Not obligatory, but it would be super nice if you could offer our readers a little treat too - we all like treats :) something for us to giveaway would be a dream, but a little discount or even a guest post if you're a fellow blogger would be perfect too... In return we'll regularly rotate our sponsors so everyone gets a fair shot near the top, and we'll give you a very nice write up in true Rhi & Lola style to encourage our lovely readers to check you out...
December is going to be JAM PACKED with really lovely and exciting stuff. We've got so much planned in our countdown to Christmas - wicked DIYs for gifts and decorations, Little M's 'Super' 2nd Birthday Party, an exclusive giveaway from a wonderful jewellery brand and a whole host of other wonderful things that is set to draw in the crowds. All we need is you :)

Hey lovers, did you all have a nice weekend? On Friday we travelled over to Kasbah in Coventry to catch The Moons on their current UK tour. It was such a good gig! The venue itself was amazing, a perfect coalescence of paisley print, fanciful art deco decoration and Moroccan furnishings, complimented with a Moroccan style outside bar...which they wouldn't open until the club night afterwards, bah! The Moons charmed us all with another brilliant set (that didn't seem quite long enough!) and as we hadn't seen them play since the summertime, it was so lovely to hear some of our favourite tracks from the new album!
Mixing old and new high street finds, here's what we wore...
Lola wears bronze metallic dress, River Island.
Rhi wear navy & black trim dress by Jane Norman.
Lola wears green leather chelsea boots, Asos; Rhi wears black suede court shoes, New Look
Antler necklace, Topshop.
Lola wears green faux fur coat by Topshop.
Rhi wears Kimono sleeved winter coat by Topshop; tan bag, H&M.
James Edward Bagshaw wear paisley kaftan by Pretty Green; black fur lined coat, Ebay.
'Nightmare Day' - The Moons, Berlin, 2011
Much love, L&R xx
