Creative minds are rarely tidy!

In these busy weeks leading up to Christmas my workroom has gradually become more and more chaotic until I could stand it no more and had a huge tidy up! We won't venture into the main store room but here is a peek at my office... I wonder how long I can keep it like this?

Limited Edition Sparkly Doves Necklace

Our Dove necklaces in blue and white have been really popular since we launched them over the summer so we thought it would be nice to have some made in sparkly acrylic for the festive season. We were so excited when they arrived last week! These necklaces really catch the light! Available as a limited edition in gold or black/silver. Grab them while you can!

Finding Frida in Paris

We have just returned from an amazing holiday in Paris, which is one of my favourite places! The week went something like this.. fitting in as many metro journeys as possible, walking our socks off, wine, cheese, art, museums, churches, dodging sprinklers in parks, champagne picnics, watching joggers while eating icecream, getting unexpectedly sunburnt, eating our body weight in salted caramels, small triumphs with language, fancy french macaroons, adoring MonoPrix, in awe at Bon Marche Grand Epicerie and bumping into a familiar lady down in the metro!

More pics of our Paris trip can be found here. It's hard adjusting to being back in the drizzle but a huge delivery of new stock has just cheered us up.. time to start sorting it all out and getting it on the website.. more of that soon x

Retro kitchen chairs

A big thank you to Bettina for sharing these pictures with us. She has used our blue hibiscus oilcloth to reupholster some kitchen chairs.. what a beautiful result! You can see more images of Bettina's work here.

I'm going to have to have them both!

I love notebooks! I have them all over the place as well as a secret stash hoarded away.. I particuarly like small notebooks that I can keep in my bag.. well, you can imagine my excitment when our new stock arrived today and included The Most Perfect Notebooks! Available now here!

A pretty Sunday picture

I'd like to pretend that I was civilised enough to eat biscuits on paper doily plates all of the time. but it isn't quite like that.. Opening the packet I had a thought that they would look really pretty against the new 'Mexican Flower Garden Pink' oilcloth and I literally raced to set up this shot and take the picture - fighting off small hands everywhere.. seconds after the picture was taken there was biscuit carnage!

Too much or not enough?

I often think I might be a bit obsessed by oilcloth, the smell and feel of it, the vibrant colours and beautiful patterns, the sound it makes when you cut through it quickly with a pair of scissors.. schooooooooh.. Erm, you see what I mean! Anyway, in the past I have joked about wallpapering with oilcloth and now I have come across this picture and I'm seriously considering it again! How cool is this?

More from our talented customers..

We love it when you get in touch to tell us and show us what you have been getting up to with our oilcloth. Thank you to Dianna for sharing pictures of the fabulous wallets you have been making. I love how the pattern matches up on the clasp, so clever! For more details check out her lovely blog.

The bike of my dreams

Thank you to the talented Saskia from Spring Cottage for letting us know what she has been getting up to with our oilcloth. She has made these fantastic covers for her bike seat and basket and I am so jealous! You can read about how she did it at her lovely blog site Spring Cottage
