The brand is fun and the designer has maintained his small business, non-commercial ethic without selling out! I love the mix of sweet & sour, femini...

Whilst cleaning up my very untidy desk I came across a few packets of vegetable seeds (as you do). I'm not quite sure where I got them from but I must have kept them because I loved the design so much.
