St John's Hospice Christmas Fayre

Looking forward to this Sunday 2nd December, where you can find me at St Johns Wood, between 11am - 6pm.

Photos from previous years make the event look really exciting and lots of lovely family activities too.

10% of sales will be given to St John’s Hospice, last year they raised an amazing £22,000!

Its the first time that I have shown at the Country Living Christmas Fair. I had lots of my customers come by and say hello and pick up some unique necklaces for their Christmas shopping.

 These are some of the new mix of pink larkspurs that were available at the event.

Country Living is on its way

This November I will be at Country Living Christmas Fair on stand MB77. I’m looking forward to it and slightly nervous as it is such a large event. I have friends and family coming to help. This year it feels like the event has headed towards a more handmade fell as there are lots of designers that I know this year doing the event. Come and say hello!

The Handmade Fair Show

It was a lovely event this year but sadly a little quieter than normal, we found out that there are new plans for next years event and there will only be the one show at Hampton Court Palace. I can’t wait to see what they have planned for next year. I have been showing at this event since it started 5 years ago!

Find me at the Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace

This September you can find me at the largest Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace. I will be there with Samantha Morris Designs on our Stand W119 with beautiful Handmade Glass Jewellery. I will be bringing some unique pieces just for this event.

Hampton Court Flower Show as a visitor

As a special treat I went to Hampton Court Flower Show with my family. It was a super hot day.

Inside the floral marque and the show gardens, with a small visit to see a rather nice Mr Bloom!

Find me at the Fancy Fair at Winchmore Hill 7th July

It’s going to be a glorious day at the Fancy Fair with lots of stall holders with handmade goodies, food, a fair ground and a stage for music and performances. There will also be screens hosting the England football match too!

Setting Up At Chelsea Flower Show

I’m so excited to be showing at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year. I was picked to be apart of the Artisan Studio’s with 4 other designers.

 This is the building from Malvern Garden Buildings, these are our sponsors, I got to choose the colour inside and out, the flooring and got a deck added too. Such an honour to be part of the show and given this opportunity.

Mother's Day and International Women's Day

Celebrating the women that made a difference in my life..

Everyone has a mum or a "surrogate" mother, that has played a part in their lives. Growing up I had my mum who stayed at home until I was 8 and my sister nearly 5. I was super lucky to have her around, making cakes, painting and trips to the allotment. I know that she did far more but these are the special things I remember.

I also had my Gran who would have me at a drop of a hat at her house, it was always an adventure, she had a massive garden, a greenhouse with a water-butt from which I used fill the watering-can to help her water her garden, not to forget the mud-pies and the den's too.

From high school age, my by best friend's mum became part of my life whom I call mum No.2 as I spent a lot of time around my friends house after school where we would do silly things that just made us laugh.

Now I'm married I have my mother-in-law but as I have known her since I was 16 years old (yes I know, I met my hubby young!) she doesn't feel like the stereotypical "mother-in-law" she is just as kind and lovely as if she was my own mum.

 

UK Mother's day orders are being taken up 10PM Wednesday 8th March 2018.

 

 

Roses for me?

Not quite...how about 20% to treat yourself?

Happy Valentines Day!


Ok, so I would love it if my husband was really romantic sometimes, but its just not him, as I drove past the flower stall near my house, the cars were pulling up and the florists couldn't keep up with the guys wanting to buy flowers...amazing, but this isn't his style. We love going out for dinner but Valentines is not the night for a special dinner as everyone is doing this and we just end up getting a mediocre dinner and come home disappointed.

Dark Pink Necklace

Mini glass sphere filled with British grown Delphinium and Larkspur petals.

So what do we do???

We enjoy cosy evenings watching our favourite movies with a bottle of wine, we cook for each other, something special that takes a little longer than normal and on nice evenings we crank up the wood burning stove and sit outside and watch the stars and the planes and talk about life! (But all the time not just Valentines Day)

My husband knows if I want something nice I will buy it for myself. He also knows that I love something handmade and whilst I'm at an event, I will have eyed up several designers that I would love to buy something from!

Dandelion Necklace

Three mini wishes encapsulated in a mini glass globe.

 

So I have decided to give you 20% off on-line orders, so if you are like me or didn't get something you really love or you would just like to treat yourself.

Here is 20% off with the code "ROSES" which is available to use until Sunday 18th February 2018 11:55 GMT
