Why throw away your memory?

Gorgeous illustrations and a sweet little Fatina brooch

Shop facade decorated with all sorts of kitsch

I've just arrived back from a little jaunt through Tokyo and Hong Kong. I have loads to catch up on and kidlets to cuddle but just wanted to share this little shop I found in the back streets of Soho, Hong Kong. Chocolate Rain is a shop full of gorgeous handmade creations all made from your favourite old clothing that is too good to throw away, while upstairs there is a little sewing room with local crafty chicks making sweet purses, brooches and other treasures.

A patchwork of inspiration and pretty pictures all bound up!
