Happy Chinese New Year! Goodbye Goat, Hello Monkey and the excuse for some casual monkeying about.
Children born this year will be quick-witted, charming, lucky, bright, versatile, adaptable and smart. Sounds pretty good considering it is meant to be one of the most unlucky years in the Chinese calendar.
Thousands of people are expected to mark the occasion in London's Chinatown, but if you're looking for something a little more alternative (and less exposed to the Biblical elements), we'd recommend Islington's Chinese Laundry for an authentic celebratory feast or a cocktail or two.
Nestled within the creative community of Edinburgh are a small band of designers breathing new life into traditional global crafts.
Here at Postcards Home we love creative people. We work with designers and illustrators whom we believe have a fresh new way of thinking and make the world a brighter, bolder place.
That's why we chose to work with Georgina Trestler on our new logo for Postcards Home. You know you've hit gold when the vintage Diplomat Typewriter comes out.
Is it just us or has Halloween got spookily stylish this year?

This year you can make pumpkin decorating easier by painting, wrapping, bejewelling and even pinning a pumpkin or gourd into crafty perfection.
Take a look at our top picks and have a go yourself!
