let it snow...

actaully perhaps the snow would stop now, lovely as it is enough is enough!

Oh xmas tree oh xmas tree how lovely are your branches!

No I haven't gone crazy, or abandoned the traditional green xmas tree forever, and no this isn't a rescue tree. Initially it was meant to save space, and although, in retrospect it probably doesn't literally save space, it certainly doesn't close in my small lounge like a regular tree. I am somewhat worried the tree will be controversial... but it was cheap.....straight from the garden...and you should also know that no trees were hurt in the making of this! I like it, and although open to hear anyones opinion of my tree, my opinion will not be changed. I stole the idea from a feature in homes and gardens....and although theres perhaps looks better...if they think its cool..then it is!

Lets get festive with a xmas treasure hunt!

So maybe November is still a bit too early for xmas, but lets not fight it and lets get festive! The snow has fallen and the decs are up, and for a limited period the shops of the secret arcade are offering a variety of deals especially for xmas shoppers. Hidden in the wreaths above each of the shop doors is an offer, and my store is no exception! So go on and get into the xmas spirit and take a virtual walk around some of the boutiques, as well as picking up a variety of festive offers on the way! You can find my store in the homeware and fabric passage. Happy hunting! x

Here is a recent addition, a commission for a lovely lady, Rebecca who wanted to add a footstool, or a toadstool as she so appropriately named it to her home, matching in with a bespoke 'leaf and duck' chair that she ordered earlier in the year. So a second-hand ercol stool was upcycled in navy frog and leaf on the reverse with green edge and pink piping! When Bex got her footstool home she text me with a little image of the footstool in its new home and and wrote ' Im sat in my chair with my feet up-Im in heaven!' This toadstool couldn't have gone to a better home!

firefly and our new chair

Here are a very quick few pics of a collaborative piece between me and firefly house. They have painted an old ercol chair blue, leaving the spindles stripped back and natural- lovely! and then covered it in my pheasant fabric.

100% design

I recently exhibited at 100% design, earl court- and here are a few pics of the event. It was a really busy few days, but great fun. I shared my stand with a great friend of mine, Lorna Syson- as well as having her own gorgeous stand she was a super help. Met some lovely people and got a few cheeky orders which is always lovely! Design week was really busy for all designers and although it was brilliant, the only sad thing was I didnt get to go and see all the other exhibitions and event on offer as I was so busy here...I shall have to catch up on what happened!

TENT, ERCOL and me!

So during design week, as some of you may have seen not only did I exhibit at 100% design but I was lucky enough to exhibit at TENT in a collaborative project with ercol furniture. The stand looked fantastic with combinations of gorgeous ercol design displaying textiles from Donna Wilson, Designers Guild and little old me! ( how lucky I am). It was very colourful, and I absolutely loved their range of butterfly chairs( as seen above)! I now have an overwhelming urge to paint black chairs I have just bought for my kitchen in a selection of bright colours....hmmmmmm!
I have to thank all the team at Ercol for giving me such a great oppertunity to work with them. Everyone was so nice. I also have to thank Barbara Chandler for all her help and getting me in contact with Ercol in the first place. Anyway, I hope that everyone likes the pieces we did together.....
