Baby it's cold outside

With a new baby on the way it is always exciting deciding how your going to decorate the nursery, picking out the coolest and cutest clothes and what name you want to choose. Desiging a range of baby grows with Autumn as the theme, I have chose the long legged/sleeves baby outfits to keep baby warm. I have now introduced a new colour adding a warm marl grey keeping a minialist look. Perfect for a baby shower, new baby, christening gift or just because. Available in a range of sizes and made to order.

Autumn Fall

Autumn is among us and how I love this season with a path of golden leaves and misty fog mornings. Taking inspiration from autumn and nature, I have created some designs and pieces over the last month ready for stockists and events. 

With it getting colder I decided to invest in creating more baby grows to keep baby warm this time of year with the introduction of my long sleeved/legged baby body suits. Using a palette of oranges and browns inspired with a hint of Halloween infused spirit too. 

Take a look at my newly decorated Halloween themed cacti (not just for Halloween) ready for any fireplace, shelf or window display. These limited edition went down a treat :) 

I am hoping to keep you posted a little more over the coming weeks with the lead up to the winter. Keeping you posted with my adventures.

Cacti Buddies

These little fellows have a little story of their own. After rescuing from being lost forever in a skip. I brought them back to life and created my little mexio cactus using eco friendly earthenware clay and fired into biscuit before hand painting them and being glazed. They come as a pair and ideally stick together which you can share with your best friend. Each one is hand painted with its own characteristic face. If you would like my pair of cacti and add to your collection of wierd and wonderful  things then you can purchase from my etsy shop or email me.

Wedding Keepsake

Its the season for weddings and we all know someone that is getting married this summer. I have hand decorated these heart trinket boxes with 'Mrs & Mr'. An ironic twist on the saying mr and mrs meaning the woman wears the trousers. I can also offer personalied messages and intials of the happy couple and even the date. A lovely keep sake for the day that the couple to keep their rings in or sentimental items from the day. Also personalised idea for the bridesmaids with their individual names on to thank them for being part of the special day. They are available to purchase and order from my etsy shop.

Bark in the Park

Being a big softie for animals big and small, I always support the animal charities and the work they do to look after the abandoned furries. I have even been commissioned to paint portraits of pets as a keepsake. I was given an opportunity to take part in a charity event held by the RSPCA in Derby called Bark in the Park at Marketon park.  It was a great event and I got to see all the lovely dogs attending with their owners. Having got together my display for the day, I thought I would take the opportunity to showcase other wares that included illustrated ceramic pet bowls. 

It was lovely meeting everyone that stopped by my stall and hope you enjoyed the day. If you stopped by the stall and was interested in having a pet portrait or even an illustrated or personalised pet bowl drop me a message for all commissions.
