On Saturday I purchased this brilliant cushion from Rory Dobner. I have wanted one for ages, but they always seemed to be sold out! Now it’s winging its way to me and I am pleased as punch. It will make a brilliant focal point in my bedroom – it’s very Alice in Wonderland don’t you think? It was [...]
