Just a quick post....It's been a crazy busy few months and year in general for that matter. I've barely had time to catch up with friends, but have always managed to fit in family life (which is one of the reasons I'm doing what I do). Last week I got a lovely delivery...

Well it's been ages (erm 7 months  actually😳) since I wrote a blog post, but that's because I've been so flippin' busy since I moved into my workshop.  I've just been prompted by the lovely Catherine Turnbull, the editor of Living magazine that my blogs are a wee bit...

I've found a workshop!

It's on my doorstep!

5 minute walk!

I'm really excited!

I've been really busy the last couple of months, both doing customer commissions and getting my work ready to sell in Decoporium at Thorpe Arch near Wetherby.  My trading space is really tiny at the moment as I see if this space works for me. I've made my own range of...

I've been dying to get my hands on Timorous Beasties fabric ever since I first saw the amazing designs from the Glasgow designers. Luckily my adventurous client loved them too and before I knew it I had the pleasure of transforming an understated (dull) victorian nursi...

Back to the workshop (aka dining room 😱) after a lovely holiday, time get on with my jobs. A nice easy footstool and a wing chair to get on with for two customers. After hunting around for an hour for backpack strip, then realising I didn't have any in the first place...

This week I completed and delivered the two vintage sofas I'd been working on and sent out the custom made footstool to another customer.  Following this I got two fabulous reviews from these lovely customers. I love my new job ❤️.
