Open Studios

This is a super quick post as we are busy birds getting ready for Open Studios, yes it is today and tomorrow!! We have been making lots of lovely things for l'uccello, filling wholesale orders and finally installing the new window at Kozminskys. I will take photos of all these things when open studios is over. In the meantime hear is a quick sample of goodies that have arrived just in time for Open Studios.

I have finally put the finishing touches on these fabulous cockades and rosettes, they are made with mostly vintage ribbons including some made with Victorian silk ribbon. Beautifully made by talented milliner Diane Kilduff, they have a broach pin on the back so they are definitely not just for ponies.

These divine little boxes are vintage French lucky dips, over 60 years old, they contain a wooden toy and have remained sealed ever since. It has taken all of my self control not to open them all, I got a skipping rope and Robyn our neighbour got a knitting Nancy, another friend got building blocks. They are very limited supply so if you want to try your luck get in early.
 Please note they are not suitable for young children.

A new batch of bunting featuring lots of French General fabrics.

Sneak peek at the new delivery of Sophie Digard, we recieved a small delivery late today I will take better shots if they last long enough, scarves and handbags, divine!

A quick note of apology to any customers who may have found the fragrance in the shop last week too strong, we were filling lots of our little pillows and sachets and it got a little heady, so again our apologies! The room has aired quite a bit now and is just lightly scented by the pillows we have on display. We will not be filling the pillows in the store from now on, thank you to Anon. for the feedback.

Have a great weekend, come to Open Studio and pop in to say hi xx
