I love it when a cute shop jumps into my eyeline just as I am dithering about who to feature on the blog next. Teal Stripes did just that, with an adorable selection of hand-painted animal brooches and bound notebooks.
Nice to see some of the less well-loved members of the animal kingdom featured with cute jellyfish and giraffes nestling amongst the cats and squirrels. I’m also a big fan of the speech bubble notebooks and don’t miss the sweet vintage stamp brooches – maybe not so kawaii but very pretty!
