On the topic of fab friends . . .

I've hit the jackpot in the friends stakes this year - we've laughed, we've cried, we've indulged in fine foods (and lots of it!), some have moved home, others have moved afar (providing great holiday destinations!) and all in all, I've been spoilt rotten.

The darling Kimberlee of Brown Button fame is one of these friends that brightens my world. She was over for my slow cooked lamb on the weekend and on arrival, she presented this unsuspecting host with a gift (in brown paper with beautiful string of course!) for my birthday.

How thrilled I was to find one of Jane Mount's Ideal Bookshelves grinning up at me from a beautiful white frame.

(Oh and the roses were from her too, isn't she divine?!)

Gorgeous Kim paid tribute to my love of food and obsession with cookbooks and gave me one of Jane's cooking inspired collections.

It is beautiful - great colours, variation in height with some AWESOME titles in the mix.

Wouldn't it make the perfect present for someone who has everything?

Perhaps someone in your book club, or a librarian landing their first job out of uni?

This is a recent one she did - how perfect for teenage girls.

I first came across Jane's work through the ever inspiring Kelly Green. She found a great pic of a room dedicated to framed Ideal Bookshelf prints.

Love a gift that's from the heart - snaps to Kimbo and Em (see her perfectly pink pressie here) for making my birfday so spesh this year xo
