Newest edition to the Milk & Honey collection

I've just finished my latest cushion. Inspired by large Morrocan floor cushions this is the perfect way to brighten any room. After the results of using this effect i want to try and create larger carpet floor cushions.
****P.S: I managed to get my sewing machine working! *****

My Pup Minxy loves a photo shoot!

Letter Tray Love

I recently brought these two letter trays and have just resprayed them, one black and one cream. The black one has been put up in the studio and i typed out little labels on our type writer for each person. The other cream one will appear on the Candy Shop once its up and running!

The "Zig-Zag" sewing machine

On Sunday, against all my mothers warnings i brought an old sewing machine. Enchanted by its retro wooden paneling and exciting heavy duty dials i couldn't wait to get it home, After lugging the bloody thing over 3 fields and spending the next 2 days ripping my hair out trying to make it work, i'm still no closer to my dream machine.
Luckily i've had my mums new (not so cool but blissfully easy to use) machine and i've been playing around with some cushion designs. I've taken a photo of some of the fabrics and designs i've already done and a shot of some beautiful threads i found in a charity shop. My next experiment is with bleach dying......wish me luck!

The Dazzle

I recently saw "The Dazzle" posted on one of my favorite blogs: Scout&Cataloge. After checking out Narwhal Art projects website I decided i would have to post some of the amazing artwork on exhibition there. The Dazzle is a study and celebration of collection fetishism, Inspired by early 17th century Wunderkammers. Here are a few of my favourite pieces. If you are in Canada go check it out!

Mood Boards

So I'm busy trying to think of new and interesting things for our up and coming Candy Shop. Whilst I'm sourcing retro bit and bobs I've been thinking of creating a line of custom pieces, ranging from cushions, wall papers, furniture, lamp shades, prints.....I'm literally looking at every angle here!
So while I'm looking into the boring stuff, here's some of my mood boards I've been creating. There's no actual order or theme to them, I've just been grouping images and ideas together from all over the place. Manly Looking at colours, shapes and textures from fashion, interiors, nature and general life style.
I'll keep posting these as and when i do them, as you will have seen I've posted two already last week.

Nest Dreaming

The interior blog i'm loving at the moment is Nest Dreaming. With a hippy vibe, its filled with beautiful homes, all with the same warm lived in atmosphere. Its refreshing to see homes rather then show houses for a change.
