The vintage drawer's day trip

Feeling a little heady today, a bit to do with spinning plates, to do lists on rotation, central heating on at the end of July, the desperate need of a holiday and the excitement that one week today I will be starting the long process of getting ready for the Love My Dress soiree at The Baltic - I am filled with child like excitement......

You may, or may not know, but I opened a little Etsy shop a while ago, mainly to start the process of spreading the word about my new collection The Vintage Drawer - take a look there's lots to see..... wedding and non-wedding hand made pretties all perched on the shop shelves.... Well this little collection is goin on a day trip to The Designer's Markeplace at Middlesbrough Town Hall (The Crypt) this Saturday - 30th July doors open at 11 'til 4pm. So come and say hello - I will be behind the stand that is full of pretty linens and floral posies and will be bringing with me door signs, bookmarks, brooches, hair clips, lavender pin cushions, sewing cases, and anything else that is lying in the drawer......soo will I see you there??????

all numbered out...

...a little note to let you know that I have just placed a small selection of table numbers on the shop shelves over at Etsy... They start from £8.00 and are great to mix with the place cards from The Printed Collections too....I am also starting to gather a small collection of table names starting with cities as seen below. These can be made to order with your own personal table titles...

place names and china cups

Good morning all - can't believe we have arrived at Thursday already. The week has flown.
I've been busy this week working on printed collections from Cartmel, Winter, Vintage Rose and sat in 'sewing corner' working on a couple of orders for The Vintage Drawer.

I thought you may like to see these lovely little linens about to go to their new home. Their tie has been placed to one side as Lisa will be tieing them to the handles of pretty china tea cups. The place name ties are £4.00 each and they have a fair few uses!! Firstly the obvious function as a place name for your table setting, we have also produced a little set for a client who will be wrapping them around the stem of all of the bridesmaids bouquets, another who has purchased a set to tie around her gift boxes. (more images of place names can be seen here). Whatever their use all I ask is that your minimum order is for the qunatity of 10. I also have bride and groom sets of the flat linen place names over at Etsy and these are £8 per set.

Right, must dash, I have an appointment with a sewing case....

This is an absolute delight, start your weekend on a high by watching this 'work of art' by Royal College of Art Graduate George Wu. Detailing is stunning....
