Beatrice K Newman

At the 2009 Hand and Lock awards I was lucky enough to meet Beatrice, I had won third prize in the student category and Beatrice received a very well deserved first. I have been following her work since then and pleased to say she is doing extremely well for herself. She is a super talented young lady, and certainly one to watch! Just this evening one of her creations has been worn by Alesha Dixon at the Brits. Well done Beatrice! Read a great interview with her at Spot On: TEXTILES. X

Treasures and Trinkets

I'm very lucky to have such thoughtful friends. Katy at Fison-Zair and Heather at Little Red have recently treated to me to some lovely bits, here's a little selection (there was more!). I think the nicest thing about these bits is that they've picked up here and there, when they see something I would love. Lots of little bits to find homes for, particularly in my printer's tray. I've currently got something up my sleeve that I'm making for them, details soon! X


BHLDN (pronounced 'beholden' - 'to keep' in Dutch) is the latest sister to Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters. This wedding line will offer dresses, shoes, hair pieces, lingerie etc. and the website goes live tomorrow! Now I'm certainly not planning my big day anytime soon but some of these fabrics are wonderful, and I couldn't resist a post! X

Wish List

This piece of furniture is the kind of thing I wouldn't go for usually, but seeing it on Design Sponge's sneak peek post of Jennifer McGargile's home I fell for it. Perhaps it's because I'm a sucker for peonies, they are my absolute favourite. Find it here. X

Love. Love. Love.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and I'm not one for spending a fortune but it's the little tokens and gestures that mean so much. X

New Work

After all that pink in the "Rose tinted spectacles" post I couldn't help but add a touch to my own work, and I think it makes it. X

Mood - Rose tinted spectacles

At the beginning of 2011 Pantone declared honeysuckle the shade of the year - "a perfect post-winter pick-me-up", I agree! X
