Christmas is here in London Town

Amazing Lights around the tree at the National History Museum
Beautiful Lighting very magical at this time of year

Had a lovely meeting with my textile agent today about my new collection for 2016 which will be heading to New York in January. It is rare for me to be in London and it was so magical with the winter wonderland in Hyde Park and then seeing the lights wrapped round the trees outside the natural History Museum! Spectacular if you get a chance go and see them there amazing!!!!!

Lovely afternoon spent at Charlotte Dee Designs

Today me and the girls drove down to Horsell, a sleepy village in Surrey. To meet Charlotte at Charlotte Dee Designs Studio. What a lovely hour we spent there having a lovely creative chat. I showed Charlotte my work while trying to watch and control a 3 year old making sure that she didn't touch or break something before we left the building and my 7 year old assistant sales expert. Note to self that's why you don't take your kids to meetings 
Charlotte Duffain restores, distresses and paints furniture in fabulous colours and has a collective mix of furniture, Lamps, China, Vases and Pictures and much more.
The studio is open weekends at 10.30 to 2.30.

Up-cycle Christmas Reef made from baubles

This Christmas I have been getting very festive and decided to up-cycle an old Christmas reef which I have had on my front door for years which was looking a bit tired. I used Christmas baubles fishing line and created this stunning original piece only costing £7.
