There is a clip for most things in life and I seem to have most of them in my clip, (formerly biscuit) tin.

I use them for everything and anything -  from keeping papers together, laundry, keeping slippery clothes on hangers, sewing projects, keeping curtains closed, closing up opened food packets, keeping cables in place, guiding plants, hanging silly things from anywhere possible to amuse my son......

My favourite ones are the aluminium clips. They are a great example of the kind of anonymous design that I mentioned HERE. They are made in Japan, lightweight, don't rust and infinitely useful. I got mine from Labour and Wait.  I also like the stainless steel wire clip hooks from Muji. It's a hook aaaaand a clip! Oh and the rubber tipped heavy duty swivel one from Commes des Garcon's Good Design Shop in Omotesando.

| Plants | Good Leaf Wish List


If you visited our home, you would probably tell me that the very last thing that we need is another plant. You would be oh-so-right; but for the fact that I got this idea stuck in my head. More of a grand plan than just an idea actually. I want a jungle in our home. Yep! Our very own Jungle. Therefore, just a few more would be marvellous!

Here are a few that I am currently looking out for via some of my favourite plant loving Instagrammers:





































Alocasia 'Stingray'
Leaves that end with a flourish that makes them resembles sting rays. And look at those stems.





































Alocasia Zebrina

I know! Another Alocasia? Yes! Can't get enough of those beautiful stems. Alocasia's can be a bit fussy but they are worth it.










































Anthurium Crystallinum
Bold and vivid with strange flowers. Every serious jungle needs one. 





































Euphorbia Lactea Variegata "white ghost".

Finding one is not my main obstacle with this one. Affording one is the issue - I saw one for £400 the other day. I want one - but free. Please? Anyone? Oh never mind.






























Aglaonima Pictum Tricolor

Looks like someone's been at it with a paintbrush no? I love it. Matches a pair of trainers I have tucked away somewhere.
