Had a great time featuring one of Painted and Patched quilts in one of my photo-shoots last week. Love this quilt dearly as did the rest of you all, the edition sold out in seconds. I think that's why this quilt will always be so special to me.
Springs coming and I just love watching all the pretty tones reveal themselves. Peoples decor giving a little nod to the season change with pastel tones, tulips, blossom, daffodils, hyacinths, open doors, washing on the line. We all know Spring is on it's way....
....Whitstable is such a special place to be.
Looking forward to London life though and soaking it all up here by the waves every chance I get!
Talent like this is hard to come by and we're super lucky to have this amazing artist creating beauties like this for us.
Painted and Patched is really excited to introduce Tom Maryniak. His carving skills leave us all in awe. MAJOR SKILLS.
LIMITED EDITION ELEPHANT PRINT COMING SOON....
It's a no brainer....
If you live in the UK and haven't been. Start planning your trip now!
Defiantly on my top ten favourite places EVER.
.... OH THIS IS FUN.
I love my dear friends who are making old pieces shine.
Equally I get super excited by some of the extraordinary, ultra sleek and modern Scandinavian designers. How do they do it I have to ask? They really know how to make SIMPLE ROCK. They take the most basic of basic when it comes to materials and really create! Studiomama says it all in the title of this work 'Waste not want not'.
Oh and then there is always room for solid hardwood, never to be forgotten. We just love Mana Design's work, so sexy. A designer who is serious about his materials and not afraid to introduce the womanly curve to his pieces. WE LOVE.
FURNITURE... it comes in all forms, shapes and sizes. Some old and re-vamped, some brand spanking new. We are so excited to share what we have in store!
It has been an exciting week for us baby lovers over at Painted and Patched, with two dear friends giving birth to beautiful babies. Little English Princess Emmie Jay Burrell and Mexican/American Prince Caleb Bryan Holiday. I can't wait to see pictures of this little guy in his quilt!!
Thank you to technology which allows us to get such quick sneak peaks at these two beauties. Congratulation and well done ladies. Enjoy these precious moments!!
Princess Emmie Jay Burrell
Prince Caleb Bryan Holiday
We welcome you both to the world with much love and blessings. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
One of the beautiful and inspring places I taught this week
Check out the quilts, utterly beautiful, got my blood pumping for colour!
The light, oh the light.
Really got me thinking about the NOW, living in NOW and noticing the NOW.
We all know we rush around, day to day, week week, month to month. I know I don't stop enough take a breath and really absorb he NOW.
That's my big theme at the mo.

What an absoute cutie. Look's very at home in her new quilt.
Just received such a gorgeous email with this picture attached from a customer....
"The box looked soooooo pretty I didn't want to even open it, but I knew what was inside... once I opened the box I almost cried! Such a treasured purchase, thank you Painted and Patched."
So great to hear back from all our happy mums (and dads too) ;)
