1. KIDS DESIGN - h&m

Just before we go Christmas crazy for December I wanted to post some other store snaps today. The first are from H&M where I snapped some cute characters and fun patterns on kidswear. Black & white has been extremely popular for children's clothing and textiles this season and at H&M there were plenty to choose from. Here are some of my faves especially the variety of bears!

2. STORE SNAPS - bristol

I spent a couple of hours in Bristol last week and managed to take a look at some of the shops in Park Street like 'Rise' and 'Guild' and also popped into the Arnolfini Gallery. I mainly visited book and record stores but still managed to find some inspiring prints and patterns. Here are my snaps from the day featuring mainly book covers, some cards and wrap, and a smattering of homewares.
