Lucinda Ireland just popped by to say hello, and to deliver some of her work, so to whet your appetite, just a smidgen, here are her printed quote cards that will be available to buy in a couple of weeks time. We have sets of three which include all the quotes above, and at just over A6 they are a perfect gift for any time, for anyone...oh yeah and maybe we'll buy a set for us too!

We've been busy taking collection of some lovely bits and bobs to launch the on-line shop with in a couple of weeks, the to-do list is looking reasonably manageable, fingers crossed, with a photo-shoot pencilled in this weekend...
We couldn't wait though to show you just one of the products available from the very talented Holly Mansell. I'm sure you can remember we featured her work when we were scouting around Free Range a couple of months ago in the post, Vintage Finds.
Holly then invited us to her graduate fashion show, her work being one of the finale collections, so we've been keeping in touch for some time now, and this weekend, we collected her small accessories and illustrated greetings cards, (her clothing to follow, so watch this space...)
The vintage inspired theme continues with these fun ankle socks embellished with vintage buttons. Each pair being completely unique they have a touch of humour, and will add an individual note to any outfit...we're thinking mid-length pleated skirts with these lovelies will suit us just fine!

We're really excited to be featuring work by CM Carter on the shop, and for all you lucky lot, here's a preview of the collection of prints which will be available to buy in a few weeks time...
In an homage to Morrissey, CM Carter had taken lyrics and interpreted them into illustrated pieces of art. Our personal favourite, 'I haven't got a stitch to wear...' but we kind of what all of them, but will resist!
There will be five different prints available in all, here are three to whet your appetite!

We've been having a little less time than usual on the blog over the last couple of weeks, things have been pretty hectic juggling our full-time day jobs & the imminent launch of our on-line shop, but somehow we are still managing to function...just! Our to-do list may be growing, but our commitment to our likes & loves continues...
Now it may not be immediately apparent that we have showcased the next graduates work before, but when we met with Liva Cabule last week, it was obvious her talent doesn't fit under any one genre. We featured her fashion illustration back in July, & loved the darker side to her interpretations, but her other work has a much more considered approach using block colour & stylised graphics, it reminded us very much of the work of Saul Bass. (The 50's & 60's from furniture to print, being another love of ours!)
We are very excited & pleased to say that we will be featuring some of her work in the shop, from the one-off illustrated book you see above, to limited edition screen-prints, which will be revealed at our launch...
