THINGS THURSDAY: Hello Milky

Here are some more products that I hope to get while in Melbourne. I think it’s the simplicity of these hand printed cushions that appeals so much, although it’s the ones with the bright pink and coral, and bold geometric prints, that I like the most.

If you’d a Hello Milky cushion for yourself, take a look here.
