Sneaky Peek: New Designs

I'm working on some new designs inspired by shapes. Triangles, hexagons, circles and squares. The new range will be printed on new fabrics. I'm experimenting with coarser weaves and finishes to exaggerate the vintage feel. First up, it's triangles and a sneaky peek at a new design.

The new range will be available in Spring 2011. Real soon!

A wee rummage

Last weekend I took a trip back home and paid a visit to my Grandma and Grandpa's house. I love looking at old photos of my family so I had a wee rummage through their collection. I found some amazing photos I'd never seen before. They now take pride of place, framed in the hallway and kitchen so we can see them every day.

Bye Bye Mug

While I was making googly eyes at all the vintage Pyrex on Etsy I took a peek at my 'favourites' page. I remember saving these beautiful vintage mugs and bottle over a year ago. It was going to be a fine collection. All mugs on display, hanging from special little hooks under my kitchen cabinets.

Not surprisingly, they've all sold. The phrase 'ya snooze ya lose!' comes to mind. As does 'you're a mug'. I am a mug. Can't believe I forgot about these!

Pyrex Love

I've got a bit of a thing for vintage Pyrex. I love it. I actually love it. "If you love Pyrex so much why don't you just marry it?". You know, I just might.

I began collecting vintage Pyrex kitchenware a few years ago. I've bought some beautiful pieces in London, Edinburgh and Texas and regularly search Ebay and Etsy for more. Here are some of my favourites found today on Etsy.

One day, they'll all be mine.

Hey Valentine!

It's getting a bit lovey dovey round here. As much as I love the sickly sweet Valentine's gifts and cheesy greetings cards, I think we can come up with something a little better... 



And remember, there's free P&P for all UK orders :)
