Early Christmas Gift….

December 17, 2009

Yesterday I received an amazing early christmas gift…I’m sure it’s a mistake, but the London Times have named Pillar Box Post as one of the 50 of the world’s best design blogs!!  Number 47 to be exact. I was absolutely thrilled, honoured and dubious when I saw I was surrounded by so many brilliant bloggers. It’s especially crazy to see those bloggers getting excited about the mention as well, like design*sponge and swissmiss, and I’m thinking hang on, if you think it’s great, I should be doing somersaults down the pavement (which in fact I was).

Anyway, for all the great new friends I hope to make from this amazing opportunity, welcome to Pillar Box Post! I’m just a graphic designer girl, raised in America, transplanted into London town with a mischievous french bulldog and a charming Mister. If you stick around you’ll be privy to my obsessions with anything oversized, my Dutch bicycle Betsyknitted necklaces, sweaters with something to say, colourful illustrations, leather camera bag projects, niave drawings, my quest for the “holy boots”knitted fox scarves, Olive Juice (my minx of a french bulldog), moodboards, pastel beach huts, paper cuts & peeking in shop windows! Whew…sounds like a lot, but there’ll be even more, hope to see you back!

    It sounds generic, but thank you all so much for your kind words, greetings, hellos etc. I’m playing a bit of catchup at the moment, but I will be visiting all your own blogs etc in the coming days/weeks/whatever it takes me!
