I received my first international order today and it got me thinking: it's about time I made it easier for international customers to place an order, so over the next week I'm going to update the site, adding international shipping options, so you'll no longer need to email me to place an order (although it's always nice to hear from customers!). I'll let you know here when it's all done.

I have lots of odd vintage finds that I've put to one side to be framed, and this is the first piece I've finally got round to doing. They're actually wooden toy blocks with figures printed on top. I thought the colours and illustrations were fab and they were crying out to be framed. Hope you like the finished look.

We are pleased to welcome Heidi, here, to our shop, and she marks the start of a special offer: all wooden egg cups now qualify for 75p postage (instead of the usual £3). You can see all 4 egg cups currently available in the Wooden objects section of the shop: http://www.woodendonkey.bigcartel.com/category/wooden-objects

There's something lovely about the red cross that signals "first-aid". Maybe it's comforting because we associate it with our mummies and daddies cleaning up scuffed knees and kissing them better. Whatever the reason, I can't resist an old first-aid box. This one is available here.

I am something of a hoarder when it comes to vintage coasters. They're a great thing to collect because they come in so many stunning mid-century designs and they don't take up too much space in your house! I have several sets of these beauties for sale in my shop, if you want to start your own collection!

Thanks for your patience everyone! We are now back online and unpacked (well nearly) and ready to go again. I've started adding new items to the shop (including these guys pictured) and you can expect to see more over the next few days. (Remember - the 9 most recently added items appear on the home page, so you can check to see what's new very easily!)

Sorry for the lack of shop updates over the last couple of weeks. You may think we're too busy watching Wimbledon to do any work, but that's not the case. We have just moved house and BT seem to be incapable of sorting out our Internet connection (they've messed our order up 3 times!!) so until that's sorted there's not much we can do. I've got so many lovely things to go in the shop too, which is frustrating. I will do an extra big update as soon as we're up and running. Now back to that unpacking...
