live to eat

We are again happily welcoming some new stockist into store. The first is a new recipe book from 3 gorgeous, local girls with a passion for food- but even better it's vegetarian! With lovely photography and illustrations the book comes in it's own little calico bag, ta-da the perfect gift.
But one thing that makes this so much fun is the use of vintage fabrics, plates and cups, it feels like you're looking at photos from past dinner parties- however with some more styling!

every bit special

We had a lovely visit from Red Cloud Design this weekend, not only to stop by and say a big 'hello' but also deliver us some goodies! Sweet little sterling silver charms turned into earrings and necklaces ready for your wearing. Some are blackened and some are made to have a pretty white/silver finish. We received some fabulous new larger pieces also, see below! Love the sailing ship pendant!

We've casually been waiting for the latest delivery of ceramics, we were really excited when we met Samantha earlier in the year, who is the maker behind these fabulous, pastel cups that arrived this week.

Regulars will know that we're fans of the ceramic/paper mix up that has been coming out from busy ceramicists all around, but these beauties ticked more boxes coming in an array of super, sweet pastels to choose from as well!
