I had a day off today

It's been sweeping through my circle of friends like an easily transmitted disease. Roisin was heavily afflicted when I first met her and symptoms were apparent and obvious. Zoëwas a carrier, but recently the symptoms have started to become more pronounced. Then it took Amy. She seemed to be weathering it well, until last Christmas, when she gave up fighting it altogether (I feel a bit bad about...

Without Rainbow order...

...there is no order.


It's raining. And a bit cooler than it has been. I'm going to say something controversial (we're British, we're supposed to moan about the weather constantly) - it's actually quite nice.

This is all Amy's fault by the way, she made a dress with rain drops on it.

OK, since I wrote the above, it got sunny again, but now it's tipping it down and there is a small river running down...

Amy's Geometric Picture

I popped around to Amy's the other day, to find her working on this:


When I turned up a few days later, it was finished and looked like this:


Cute huh?

The weekend is a blur.

We had so much fun this weekend! We had a lovely group of Hens in the studio, they were creating Embroidery Hoop Art under Zoë & Amy's expert tutelage. Check out our ever-growing pinterest board  for ideas if you fancy having a go at home, or come along to our next workshop if you would like some inspiration or guidance - as well as unfettered access to our stash of trims and scraps!

We like shelves. (Also some Friday Finds)

Little sets of shelves are ace. You can fill them with your favourite bits and pieces. Mine have Gregory Peck on them, a marble, a doll from Retrouve, a caravan, a highland cow, an alabaster bird, a plate with a donkey on it, a wooden bird Amy bought me for my Birthday, a pretty felt doll that Zoë made for me, a Christmas present from Paul (those nesting owls are amazing, aren't they?), an old...

Friday Finds

Zoë & I love kitsch ceramic animals with big doe eyes. We have an excellent selection in the shop at the moment. Amy is enduring them rather well.

Rainbow Crochet Scarf - Free Pattern!

Zoë crocheted Amy a very pretty scarf for Christmas. As she couldn't find a suitable pattern, she wrote her own! Zoë has offered to share it with us, in case any of you fancy making one for yourself. Can't crochet? Don't worry, we've got that covered too...


This pattern uses UK crochet terms.

Use a 4.5mm hook and double knitting yarn in red, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple and pink. I used...

What a year

What an amazing year we've had!


We've completely changed our logo to something we think suits us far better.


We're stocking brands we love and have more home made items than we've ever had before. We trashed the shop and re-arranged it so the layout is much more to our liking.


Our craft workshops have become increasingly popular, we're really proud of the fantastic skills people can now learn in the...

That's my house that is.

So, Fiona came to photograph my house recently. 

Yes, I have a wooden Ark in my living room. 


Amy, Zoë and I have relatively similar tastes in our houses - we're all pretty thrifty. Nothing we have in our homes costs very much, aside from the untold number of hours spent finding, painting, covering, restoring and revamping. Don't get me wrong, we have the odd luxury. For example, Nic kindly bought...

Friday Finds - You can't fight the kitsch.

As you might be aware by now, I am a sucker for all things kitsch. If it has doe eyes, thick eyelashes and some sort of bow round it's neck, I'm usually all over it. Amy is less of a fan (remember the Horse Head Book Ends?), but I think she's finally coming round. Ever since we met Zoë, who is also a bit of a kitsch-lover, Amy has started to see the light. Or she has just given up fighting it.

Changes afoot

I totally forgot it was Friday on Friday, so Friday Finds didn't happen this week I'm sorry. Which is a shame, because we found some beautiful new retro bits, but they'll have to wait until next week now.

We've been preparing for the C-Word around here. Amy and Zoë have been busily making and planning. I've been carding up new wooden brooches - this one is my favourite:

'Hey, I'm walkin' here'

Friday Finds

This week's Friday find is a bit late, sorry! Yesterday, we celebrated Zoë's birthday. We had a lovely time showering her with gifts, drinking champagne and eating delicious food from Kayal (our second visit in as many weeks!). Zoë got me drunk, but really I think it was Amy's fault for not turning up early enough to help with the champagne.

This pretty Midwinter conserve pot was found by Zoë, and...
