Proper Crimbo


It's not a proper Christmas without a Christmas tree now is it? So whilst I'm sharing a house with others i've made do with this teeny weeny real Christmas tree.

I bought it from a stall at a craft market last weekend in Brixton and the girl even told me I can keep it alive until next year!

I decorated this mini piece with cut up paper straws and threaded onto some crochet cotton, some polka dot ribbon, a paper cut I made of stars and topped by a lovely coral red vintage button. Both the ribbon and button were gifted to me by Teasemade I think.

The little addition house at the bottom comes as a greetings card which you cut out and glue together. It's designed by a new favourite designer of mine, Lucy Jane Batchellor.

Delish



These soap cupcake are just so mouthwatering. They are incredibly realistic looking for soaps and I just can't imagine the amount of effort gone into these beauties!

Check out Delish Bath Treat's shop on Folksy, where Debi who is a beauty therapist by day makes these fab treats by night. She has loads more of other goodies, like bubbles bars and lolly soaps.

Recipes.






Now I'm not designing for my shop anymore, I am working on collating some favourite recipes of mine. I am hoping to do some paintings of the finished thing, or process or the baking.

I'm not sure how this little project will work out but I hope it'll be so cute!

This is Alex, and what he says is true, he is now top chap at SheDraws, which also means the SHOP is back open!

Carrier Pigeon


A couple of weeks ago, when London Design Week was on, Selvedge mag set up a stitching shop in the V&A for passers by and great fans to join in and stitch some lovely pigeons that were perfectly screen printed by Thornback & Peel. Both Sami Teasemade and I went along to this great day and lovingly created our very own pigeon to keep once the whole troop of them had taken part in a photo shoot at Trafalgar Square.

Pigeons, by the way, are a long running connection which me since my boyfriend affectionately calls me Pigeon, or Pige, as did Jack Duckworth to his beloved Vera. Since this started Pigeons seem to follow me, including one time when I rescued a racing pigeon from preying cats for 3 whole days until her owner could arrange a collection.

Anyway, you can view more exciting pigeon stitch photo's on Teasemades blog and also on the Selvedge Flickr site where my pigeon sits proudly with a Lion!

It was a truly great day, so you should sign up to Selvedge's mailing list to find out about future events and I will see you there!

Blowing away the cobwebs.

I realised I hadn't blogged for a while and things have been busy. I'm still deciding what to do about my blog and how to take it to the next stage, so please excuse the huge gaps in between each post!

Whilst things have been busy, nothing too exciting has been going on and every time I go out I forget to take my camera! I promise to go and explore my new place to call home with my camera next time, so for now I leave you with a picture from Sunday when the Boyfriend took me to see some car event at Brands Hatch. It was such a gorgeous say and I was pleased to be able to wear my new rayban clubmaster's glasses all day long.

So far


So far my new job and home is going really well. I really like my knew job, it's something I have always dreamed of, what I really wanted to do and I really do have to pinch myself when i leave work because I just can't believe I am there. When I am at work, working on these great briefs and seeing what everyone else is getting to do, I just take it with a pinch of salt and only when I come home, I think wow.

I wish I could tell you all about the gorgeous things we're all designing but since we work for far ahead, although for christmas 2011 it's hard to say anything without giving it all away! I hope you can understand!

I haven't blogged for a while now, but I have been thinking about it and thinking about what I can now do now i'm not selling like before. I hope that my blog can brings fresh, lovely things, a feast for the eyes, perhaps some DIY projects and just things I see and are inspired by. Today I will leave you with some pictures of Celia Birtwell's new season at John Lewis. Looooove her stuff and I'd really love the white top.

Bye for now!
