Happy New Year! Best of 2017

Happy New Year!  As 2017 draws to an end it’s time to look forward to the possibilities 2018 will bring – more vintage furniture and more ways to help the planet.  Here’s a quick look back at some of our favourite finds of this year – some pieces have found new homes already and some are available now in the shop.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us, wishing you all the very best for 2018! x

November Workshop Playlist

Here at Lovelitter HQ we love music and we feel it’s important to listen to music that motivates and inspires us, we have an eclectic taste so pretty much anything can be found on our playlists. Our November Workshop Playlist is pretty representative of the music we like to work to, some high tempo dance tracks next to some mellow guitar based songs creating a balance of power and power down songs to get us through every eventuality of the day.


Disneyland Rotadraw 1978

We picked up this boxed Rotadraw set on our travels, mainly due to the eye catching bright colours of the box design, not because we knew what it was.  The closest thing we could relate it to was Spirograph, but it is not really that similar.  After doing a little bit of research we found that there were quite a few different sets of Rotadraw available that would enable the user to draw different characters and scenes, this set allows the user to draw Disney characters.  The set is complete, which is always a good thing where vintage finds are concerned, and it contains everything needed to produce a small Disney image.

The set contains 5 plastic discs each dipicting a different Disney character to be drawn.  There are a few black and white scene pages that act as the stage for where the chosen Disney character will find themselves upon completion of the task.

The chosen scene image is placed under the provided blue plastic frame with the chosen character disc on top with the No.1 on the plastic disc lined up to the starting arrow on the blue frame, the idea is that with each twist of the disc a new part of the pattern is marked and the user is closer to seeing a finished character.  Similar to Paint by Numbers the user then works their way through the numbered shapes, marking the patterns on the disc that each twist of the disc allows.

We were pretty pleased with the results, it didn’t take long to finish and the Bambi produced does share a resemblance to actual Bambi! All in all Rotadraw is a pretty sweet idea and it is great how the process can be transferred to other media and the user is not restricted to the provided scenes.  A nice little chunk of 1970’s life.


Xmas Playlist!

We’re getting into the festive mood at LOVELITTER HQ, here’s our Christmas playlist so you can too! We picked some of our favourite Xmas bops featuring the sweet smooth sound of The Miracles’ with ‘Noel’, the gritty voice of Shane MacGowan on ‘Fairytale of New York’ and Gayla Peevey demanding that essential hippo for Xmas. Enjoy!
