Rolfe 'out and about': Saturday at the charity shop

Today a midday call with Bloomfield to discuss workings on our forthcoming launch on Not On The High Street and action points for our own dear website. A dash to the post office to post an urgent order for Holly's Houses and a quick peruse in Oxfam - some fab purchases!

I am especially pleased with a gorgeous book of British birds from 1958 bound in turquoise bookcloth with a small embossed black bird on the cover and, inside, the most appealing black and white woodblock style illustrations alongside simple line drawings of each species - how Bloomfield & Rolfe!

Also note the wonderful patterns and sumptuous teal glaze on this ceramic box from Portugal; possible inspiration for some new stamp designs? Watch this space...
