Gifts for the girls – vintage birdcages

Gifts for the girls – tailor made

Gifts for the girls – tea time

A range of prints I created when my vector days were kicking off. Each made great Christmas pressies when paired with a lovely cream picture mount.

A little piece I did for my stepmum's Christmas present (2012)
She has three little'uns – my fab stepbrother Tom and two adorable half-sisters Ella and Lucy. These little booties represent the troublesome trio in their winter wellingtons!

Moustaches, bicycles and nautical fun

I love Alice Shields!
She is one of the most recent artists I have been researching at work and her stuff is just plain and simply wonderful. She specialises in cermaics and broadens this into jewellery, homewear and even plant accessories. I am definitely going to purchase some of the earings and brooches soon! They are just so simple and the illustrations adorable. Take a look for yourself!

Local gems

So last month I bagged myself a little job at local National Trust shop and gallery, 'trust'. It specialises in high-end local crafts, home accessories, jewellery and stationary and is just the perfect addition to my usual work at Lacock Abbey. I work a couple of days a week keeping the shop looking fabulous, focusing on various marketing projects and soucing new suppliers. I can listen to my own music (if appropriate!) and the stock is just to die for! Unfortunately quite a lot of it is out of my price range but i'm sure the discount will come in handy. 

Some of my ultimate favourite ranges include illustrative cards by local artist Susie Brooks (who is actually based just upstairs in The Glove Factory Studios) and the Rosehip range of beautiful stationary. I was lucky enough to be given a free Rosehip book for all my notes at the shop!
