Beautiful new slipcover colours!

Hallooo Dear Dodopadlers! Miss Peabody here with some exciting ‘new-product’ news!

Our new batch of gorgeous slipcovers has arrived! There are new colours this year for the Italian leather slipcovers, and a new Nubuck line of covers that is positively divine.

Our slipcovers are uber-exclusive and there are very limited quantities of all colours, especially the natural hide covers in elegant Ecru and decadent Royal Purple (created in honour of the recent Royal Wedding):

Leather cover selection

The sensuous new recycled Nubuck covers have a suede-like feel making them wonderful to hold in your hands (and happily, unlike some suedes, are very stain-resistant):

The smooth recycled leather covers come in a variety of cheery colours:

The faux leather covers are made of man-made materials and have a wonderfully leather-like look and feel. (You may have already seen my post about how much I love my iridescent lilac faux leather slipcover.)

You’re sure to find a colour that suits you!

The slipcovers come in the Desk and Mini sizes to fit your original or mini size Dodo Pad or Acad-Pad diaryClick here and scroll down to see all the colours for each size in your choice of leather, nubuck, or faux leather.

These covers are perfect for protecting your diary all year, or for keeping the exuberance of your Dodo under wraps for those more staid environs.

The front and back covers of your diary slip into the cover, then slip out again to be replaced by the following year’s diary so you can enjoy using your slipcover for years to come.

(Here’s a secret: some Dodopadlers own several slipcovers in various colours to match their bag, their ensemble or even their mood and swap them accordingly!)

Production took place in a studio on the banks of the River Arno in Florence – lucky Lord Dodo got to see them being made! It’s finished for this year’s batch of slipcovers, which means all of these beautiful covers are Limited Edition and when they are gone, they are completely gone. So don’t hesitate to order the colour you want, we wouldn’t want you to be disappointed!

Which is your favourite colour? I can’t decide which is more stunning, the Ecru or Royal Purple natural hide covers, or the Aqua Nubuck cover!  They’re all fabulous, aren’t they??

Toodle-oo for now!

Dodo Old Proverbial Mug: French Proverb

Halloo dear Dodopadlers! Miss Peabody here!

I wanted to share a couple of photos with you of my Dodo Old Proverbial Mug with the French proverb, “It is always the impossible that happens.”  Here you see it filled to the brim with my morning cuppa:

Dodo French Proverbial mug

Flying Dodo!

It does indeed seem to be the “impossible” things that happen!  This quote inspires me every day.

Lord Dodo has a grand selection of twelve old proverbs from around the world to choose from. They make for a fascinating glimpse of other cultures through their sayings!  And each mug features fun illustrations of the famous Dodo.  Click here to see the entire selection of old proverbs.

Which old proverb inspires you most? Do tell…

Toodle-oo for now!
