Another week already! I think time is a curious thing, it seems to speed up some days and totally expand and slow down the next. We have an old clock on the wall at l'uccello, it generally doesn't work anymore, but every now and then it fires up for a few minutes. So according to the clock it must be about 1954 at l'uccello! So on one hand we have been busy all week and time has flown but on the other, we are waiting, waiting, waiting for so many lovely things to arrive. We have fabulous new shipments of vintage stamens, exquisite silk flowers, antique paper goods, vintage lace and most exciting of all Sophie Digard scarves all in transit. 

A sneak peek of part of our new range of paper ephemera, they are the most beautiful Victorian paper scraps, the colours and the artwork are divine! We will soon be stocking a wide range of authentic paper ephemera goods and some modern stationery supplies and books for paper crafts, invitation, card and journal making.

This is one of the beautiful books we have in stock, the detail in these silhouettes is astounding.

I've been busy rearranging the fancy goods, we have so many new Valdani colours I had to commandeer our gorgeous antique display box for them, aren't they lovely?

New stock in this week included these lovely old spools of super glossy rayon embroidery thread in a beautiful ivory colour.

We also received lots of new spools of antique French Conscrit linen thread, a few wooden reels and gorgeous little balls in cardboard dispensers. Most of these threads date from the 1930s and 40s.

More lovely ribbons from the East of India brand, a new range of contemporary sewing and craft products that we have recently started to stock.

We also received a delivery of these gorgeous little ceramic dogs, they are from the prestigious French ceramic workshop Astier de Villatte. Their beautiful store is in the centre of Paris and is filled with their mostly white, exquisite hand made ceramics.

And finally just to tantalise you, this lovely image from Bright Star features a cardigan by the divine Ms Digard, our new stock of Sophie Digard is due any minute but we are so excited it seems like forever.

Have a marvelous Sunday X
