NEW printed tea light holders

Monday, 30 May 2011

Nice weekend?? It is being lovely in london. I am still recovering from my friend's wedding yesterday, they looked so happy and gorgeous, we all danced, ate and drunk in different quantities, love makes us all happy people!!

I have been meaning to make tea light holders for a quite a while. But was not sure about the designs, I tried different versions and came with this one, a collection of different cameos, deer, rabbit, flamingo, etc...they are made of printed paper around a glass holder. They are for sell at my shop, not many left as they proved very popular at the last show, I need to get making more...

Clerkenwell Design Week

Monday, 23 May 2011

Come along to the Creative Clerkenwell Pop-Up Shop, as part of the festival, there will be a great selection of designers showing their latest work, plus many other events and markets.

Romantic versus dark vintage

I don't know about you, but I like way too many styles to stick to just one. I love the vintage look that old furniture, (my dear chester) and a few junk finds give to a room, combined with a dark wall and a few more modern pieces together with ethnic treasures. Since I started my cameos collection I have been more drawn into dark victorian images and spaces, It makes the house feels cosy and very English; but at the same time love the tranquility and clean lines of a white wall, and furniture, with roses and a more feminine touch, not too girly just the right balance. So since I can not make my mind up I keep changing and rearranging things around the house...what look do you prefer? What is your choice of style when it comes to decorating your home?

Dreaming of a place like this...

Saturday, 14 May 2011

Browsing the impressive portfolio of photographer Mikkel Vang, I cached myself dreaming of a place like this. I guess the thought of what is coming along, 4 days at a show, from morning to evening has all the sudden transported me to a place of tranquility and beauty away from the mundane city...

Open House review and discount at chocolate creative

Monday, 9 May 2011

Open House weekend is over, so back to normality...the house feels very quiet after having a lot of people around. This was the first year I took part in the Dulwich Festival, and I am glad I did. Over all, it has been a very nice event, where Kate, Louise and myself, got to meet very nice people, who were interested in out products. These events are very good for getting direct feedback from customers and raise the profile of our brands, thanks to friends and all the people who joined us over the 2 days.

We are working on the next event, which would be a Xmas pop up shop, where we expect to have a gorgeous selection of gifts, craft workshops, tasty treats, and much more.

I always offer a discount at this events, and since a lot of you, could not make it to the Open House weekend, I will be offering a 10% discount on the cushions and prints for the rest of
May, just enter MAY2011 to get your 10% discount, enjoy shopping!!

Mix and match tea time

Monday, 2 May 2011

Back from the Royal Wedding and bank holidays weekend. After I came back from Spain a few weeks back, weather in London have been amazing and a days off have been happening one after another, visit from my friends from Barcelona, presents from Kate to celebrate my 40's!, etc...Of course I have been working in between, preparing the house and stock for the Open House weekend, and making tea candles...

Kate and me had a mix and match tea party on Friday, she gave me lovely presents, (prints and a nice ceramic pot), and we had tasty cakes and tea while chatting away for ours...(Thanks Kate for my presents, totally love them!).

My lovely new print and candle tea lights I am working on, I have printed new designs and I hoping to have them ready to sell over the weekend...
