Crafty Fox Markets

I'm taking part in my first event in London this weekend. On Sunday you will find me at the Dogstar pub in Brixton as part of the Crafty Fox autumn market!
Shall I be seeing some of you there?

A Very Good Week

Today is a very important day because today I get to see Kate Bush live in concert, something I never thought I'd see. 35 years since her last performances!

Tomorrow is a very important day because it will be exactly 10 years since I moved to Liverpool. It was windy, it was pissing down with rain and my friend Sarah, who I hadn't seen for about 7 years took, me out for a meal at Marantos on Lark Lane. And the next day I had my induction at LIPA.

Ten years on and I'm not working in the theatre, or at least not much, but I am running my own business and it's not too shabby! So, to celebrate both these things, I'm giving you all 35% off everything in my shop until Monday.

HAPPY SHOPPING!

Local Colour

I'm in the middle of planning a photoshoot for my Autumn-Winter collection, very exciting, and went for a wander around my neighbourhood to check out potential locations. Even though I live in a pretty built-up area of a large city I'm never far from nature!


 Brambles growing out from the gardens bordering our local park, would it be cheeky to go pick some?

 Ivy covers everything in my neighbourhood.
 Elderberries?

 This fella was on the lake at the park and flew away before I could get a picture. He seemed quite happy at the very top of this tree though.
 Hawthorn everywhere.
And this little chap was just hanging out in the tangle of bushes in front of my flat! He makes a change from the usual magpies and squirrels out there.
Tomorrow I'm visiting Ness Gardens on the Wirral to do some planning for an event I'm organising there so who knows what flora and fauna I'll see there!

Etsy Picks: Time for Tea

This week is National Afternoon Tea Week! I don't know what that entails particularly, but I've made a treasury on Etsy to celebrate all things tea party. I've gone for a fresh, bright feel, lots of popping colour and strong shapes. Here's a few of my faves, I hope you like them!

I love this Scandi print tea cosy by AndShine.
These coffee pot wall decals by SirFaceGraphics are available in a range of colours and would instantly brighten up any wall.
This gorgeous macaroon photo by KeriBevan looks good enough to eat.
This pretty upcycled cake stand by AnnaJaneVintage is delicate but not fussy. Perfect for my tea party!
