Scroll For The Future.

Last Saturday I was in Daintree in Dublin, which if you love paper is well worth a visit. I can't remember when I was last in there but I could have bought the whole shop, no problem. As it was I contented myself with a few bits and bobs (tho no origami paper, which was top of my list, pity), including the cutest little scrolls that I got for the three older ones. I've asked them to write or draw on them, something relevent to Now in their lives. The Little One has done his, of course. The other two are thinking about it too much, but hopefully over the weekend they'll do something. I plan to get them whenever I'm in Daintree and when they've done something on them I'll date them and put them away.



If you do go there, you must not leave without a visit to my absolutely favourite cafe in Dublin,The Cake Cafe, which just happens to be in the same lovely building. I dream of having this on my doorstep, and find any excuse to visit. Sadly, I don't enough tho. For now.

I just love Ed's drawing! So artistic. I've seen some beautiful origami paper in Muji on Chatham Street by the way. I really ought to give it a whirl myself, as I'm loving everything origami-inspired at the moment.

Savour those Edmund drawings. His use of colour is amazing.
