You're back! Hello. Tuesdays are always a bit easier than Mondays, aren't they? To follow on from yesterday I thought I'd take you from what goes on our walls to what goes inside them and look at homewares featuring hand drawn illustration.

Start the day with Breakfast in Bed on this aptly titled Donna Wilson tray. Next pretty up a chair or couch with one of Cecilia's cushions, available through Envelop. Season lunch with a Totally Totem pepper grinder by Melbourne artist Beck Wheeler. And serve afternoon tea on a Marimekko tray graced with the illustrative work of Maja Louekar. Lovely textural, pencil drawing for a table runner by Ana Montiel, also available on Envelop. It would be tea-time all day at my house with this circus theme tea set, made from re-used porcelain. Illustration by Studio Violet team, Elisabeth Dunker and Camilla Engman. Mirka Mora vase, part of Heide MOMA special, limited edition artist products. (Big thanks to Kate from Captain KK for letting me use her image of this item.) Enjoy hard-boiled eggs in the company of Meg and Mog, egg cups by Donna Wilson. Fall asleep resting your head on these heavily detailed and imaginative looking monsters drawn by Shoboshobo, available from Third Drawer Down. Seriously cheery prints from Annabel Grey to decorate your household furnishings. How charming is the rabbit? I love his tan fur. Rock the day away in a Mike Perry illustrated Eames Bucket chair. And keep your trash sitting pretty in this trash can, also by Mike Perry. Jimbob Art, original hand drawn, Sleeping Fox serving plate. What wonderful items! I love seeing hand drawn lines, especially in design when applied to functional objects we use in everyday life. Given it is almost Christmas you could personalise an everyday item yourself to gift to your nearest and dearest, or just for you. I have tried my hand at something simple which I'll show you today on Handmade Romance. x Ciao for now Evie
