A spot of Bother

Oh Bother Designs large Scrabble wall tiles £4 each

Last week, a lovely lady called Stephanie got in touch to tell me about an online shop she runs with her boyfriend, Aiden. They make and sell homewares and jewellery under the name Oh Bother Design at http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/OhBotherDesign

After taking a quick peek, I’m definitely a fan. I particularly like the oversized Scrabble wall tiles, £4 each, above. Printed on plastic just like the real thing, a single initial would look cool on a mantlepiece or on a wall  amongst a group of picture frames; or you could spell out a whole name or two as in the pic below (great for a wedding present).

Steph and Aiden also make cool rings (£20) or bangles out of wood and coloured pencils; quirky stag head wall art (£15) and grandfather clocks (£19) out of cardboard; arty wooden letters in a ‘circus’ font; and pretty acrylic flower-shaped coasters (£12 for a set of three)…

Oh Bother Designs set of three geometric coasters £12

Finally, it’s worth casting your eyes over (sorry) the fun eye test cards, £17 each including frame, which come in one of two designs, below. For a tenner extra, the guys will personalise one for you if you can think of a phrase you’d prefer in 20-40 characters…
