As the nights draw in…

The Autumn is well and truly here, with cold frosty mornings and the gorgeous reds and burnt oranges of the fallen leaves.  It’s wonderful to light the fire in the studio and spend the day all cosy and warm while we work.  As well as the Christmas events we’ve been enjoying, we have been fortunate enough to add some lovely new shops to our list of stockists this year so have been kept busy producing items for stalls and shops over the last few weeks.

We have managed to have a little bit of time off recently, which we spent rummaging in vintage, antique and charity shops.  Look at the goodies we found:

The little vanity case is a gorgeous royal blue with an immaculate red lining – such a lucky find!  The old and incomplete Scrabble set will be transformed into upcycled letter rings which are for sale in our Etsy shop.  And the cute wooden finger puppets are in such great condition, despite being well played with and obviously loved.

We also acquired a fabulous collection of glassware:

The smoked glass flan dish has a recipe for lemon meringue pie printed on it, which we are really looking forward to trying when we have time.  The Pyrex pie dish was put straight to use for an Autumnal apple and hedgerow-foraged blackberry crumble – yum!

This weekend saw us at the Langley School Christmas Craft and Food Fayre, meeting lots of lovely people and catching up with some old friends!  We are now busy preparing for the Bungay Christmas Street Market, which is Sunday 2nd December from 9.30am to 4pm and is always a busy, vibrant event with lots of entertainment and a real festive atmosphere – we would love to see you there!  LouLou & Will x
