We think you’re lovely. You’ve inspired, amazed, amused and delighted us. So we made a magazine about you. And we’ve put the kettle on ’cause we’re hoping you’ll stay.x

Welcome to issue two : )
I’ve added a nice little bunch of new stuff.
Poppy tea cake in ‘Yum’
I have no new pieces in ‘words’ but if you feel like contributing a piece you could be the new proud owner of the lacey jacket in our new section, ‘Pre-loved. Free.x’
The cover picture here this month is not mine. I’ve tried to find where it comes from so that i could ask permission to use it but i couldn’t find it. I am breaking copyright law and i apologise for that. It’s not a good example to set.
Dear person who took/owns this photo,
You are a genius and i love you. Was this guy ok after? Was it set up? Did you laugh?
Thanks for taking it. Please don’t sue me. I don’t have any money.
The first ‘tea with’ piece. My next door neighbours. Klee paper. The first people to bring recycled paper into shops in Ireland. They also stock paper made from elephant poo. I kid you not.
Three new pieces in ‘the things you make’. Beautiful headpieces by Lucie-Clair, great little pictures by Justin Larkin and illustrated instructions for how to make a coffee cup holder for your bicycle. No more envy of people in cars/on buses/walking to work with their coffee. But i would not advise wearing white while using this contraption.
Oh and i nearly forgot, ‘photos to love’ this issue. I think they are just shockingly…shockingly something. I can’t describe it. Adjectives in the comments section below them would be awesome.
And great tunes suggested by Lucie in ‘listeningness niceness’. I would also like to direct you to the ‘things i think you’d like section’. You will find a link that takes you to 5 great free tracks. Frenchy, folky sweet things.
As always, contributions for any of the sections are delightfully accepted, or even just suggestions of things you like but would like someone else to write about.
I hope autumn is being good to you all. It’s dryer than usual. The leaves are crunchy instead of squishy, slippy death traps which is nice. I’m not a huge fan of autumn so that has kind of kept me going.
tea at my house next friday. you’re all invited.
wooly jumpers and love,
