An Ode To...

Lovely Simple Necklaces 
(that are filling up our etsy favorites...I just can't help myself, they're all so lovely and I'd hate to forget about one...seriously you should go and look at our favorites, there are soo many there)
I love these, the listing/description is superb and makes me smile when ever I read it. I think the choice of colors are perfect (i'll take the second on the left taa very much) and the thin chain is perfect. They are made by ulala, find the etsy shop here and the listing here. (If my Frankie reading memory serves me well her bags were in one of the most recent issues.)
I'm a plain loose jersey top kind of girl (when i'm not working...when i'm working i'm generally found in a ridiculously bright vintage dress of some helps me through the dull days!...and helps with my sense of humor) and i think  know that this lovely would look perfect with every daytime top I own...FACT. Made by thingslikediamonds, find the etsy shop here, and the listing here.
I'm certain that this beaut would look the bees knees on a night out, not too fancy but the metallic tones will jazz up any plain top, it comes from BlueBirdLab, find the etsy shop here, and the listing here.
I love the colors and simple pattern on this beaut...and the gold chain... in fact i love the whole thing (you see?....this is my problem...and hence why our favorite page is FULL of everything) It's made by depeapa, find the etsy shop here and the listing here.
Another geometric lovely, I don't know what is about these hexagons but I like them a lot. The colors and mix-matched sizes of this one are perfect for me...and lots of other people i'm sure. It's made by frausieben, find the etsy shop here and the listing here.

Its my birthday tomorrow (I asked the bearded one to get me something from my etsy favorites as a birthday gift...fingers crossed he's got me one of the lovely necklaces pictured above or one of the many more in our favorites!)
Take Care

 We're super busy sewing up lots and lots of stock for Paper.Scissors.Stone. and also trying to organize Curio's Emporium.
A tasty treat at my favorite Cafe in Cheltenham...if your local and you haven't been to Cafe Moochoo...may i politely ask what your doing with your time and request that you head on over there toot suite (its on the high street)
I GREW THESE!...with the bearded ones help, they are Anemones. 
I ALSO GREW THESE!...they are Sparaxis.
AND THESE!....they are called Stocks (but lots of you probably all ready knew that.)

 Anyway, I'm off to Google cures for Prickly Heat and plan tomorrows sewing high jinx!

Pictorial Review...

 The chat still isn't flowing, so here's some more pictures of the last week or so.
We went to Bristol and I brought this fella, he's made by the lady behind mmm biscuits and I have called him Basil...because I am an almost 26 year old who still has to give everything a name.
This part of the studio wall is dedicated to my new collection...which is titles 'metal things to hang on the wall next to my light switch'
A close up of Basil's face...which i think is quite lovely.
Newly thrifted vintage fabric...i'm thinking i'll make a limited run of plush from it...especially the horse....but not the clown...he's creepy.
my computer desk chair...which used to be in a hairdressers...until they threw it out and I picked it up off the street.
I brought some new sandals and i like them a lot. Today I wore them with socks...which I have heard is a big no no...nevertheless I did it.
An 8.30 shot of the sewing desk...I was busy sewing up a full series of Weirdy Beardy's...which i delivered today.
Here are said Weirdy Beardy's...with their brains hanging out because I hadn't sewn them up when I took the picture.
I have decided to cover the two tone floor boards in the studio with lots of different rugs, so i was quite pleased to score this animal hyde rug (i think it was some sort of long haired creature...perhaps a goat) in the charity shop. Normally fur is a big no no to me (i once handed back a lady her fur coat when i worked in a cloak room because I couldn't bare to touch it) but I'm fairly sure this is a by-product, meaning the animal wasn't killed purely for its fur. My apologies if me purchasing the rug offends anyone.
Our ever increasing collection of pictures above our bed. The far right and far left pictures were given to us by a dear friend and I love them. He recently went to the hadron collider for an interesting project.
StuffedNonsense will be making baby mobile's soon, here's the first mock up..I like it a lot.
Work in progress shot.
 That's all for this week, if you haven't done allready...take a look at our facebook page...we pop by there quite alot these days.

A Request...

Hello out there.
Some of you may know that we both work in a pub called The Swan.
We're helping to organize a little Pop Up Pub Fair at The Swan on June the 2nd. Here's where my request comes in...if there are any local people out there living in the land of the Cotswolds would you mind telling all of your lovely friends and family about a super dooper Pop Up Pub Fair that will be full of bunting and good old fashioned fun.
Cheltenham town centre is dire need of some help...there are just under 60 empty units (I think). We think that events like this will be the start of something exciting, a chance for some of the many talented creative people to get there work out there and in front of the lovely people of Cheltenham and the Cotswolds.
So pleeeeeeease spread the word. If you think you might be interested in a stall follow the link to the blog and there's more info about applying there!
Over and out!

Pictorial Review.

Big succulents...most of mine are tiny compared to these.
In an attempt to be more organised and (ahem) professional I spent a large portion of my week sifting through the scrap basket and cutting out Human Bean body fabric...the idea being that when we get an order the whole process will be more stream lined as half the work is done in advance...fingers crossed.
I finally finished my 'light shade' for the studio, I'm fairly sure it looks like it belongs in a 5year old's bedroom but I like it so they you are. (the crochet flowers were provided by the talented Vicki from Lilley Stitches.)
This picture sits on my computer desk and always makes me smile without fail. It's of me and Arthur (he's the one with the beard) when we went to Brighton a few weeks back...happy happy memories.
This is the print in the background of the previous picture, I treated myself to it last week, it's supposed to go in our bedroom but it seems to have gotten waylaid. LesChosesImprimees is full of lovely things...perhaps you should take a look?
We get an Abel&Cole vegetable box delivered every week, this week they sent us an abundance of Cherry Tomatoes so we made Brushetta for really was quite delicious!

That's all for now guys...still not feeling terrifically chatty, I'm off to tweak the Grizzly Geoff pattern a little bit.

A Sale Of Sorts

Just stopping buy to let y'all know that we've popped some Weirdy Beardy's and Long Johns into the SALE section of our etsy shop. There's nothing wrong with them at all, we've just tweaked the design a little bit since they were first made. We've knocked 50% off their original price so they are only £10!!
Happy shopping!
