two for the road

Unleashing the inner fashion beast of a three year old is a brave move. They pick, kick and squabble. Give in and you may just end up with them in a ball gown with gumboots... and checkmate mamma. And when one becomes two, three...? Styling siblings: twins are obvious, but when there are years between [...]

what’s luck got to do with it..?

to market, to market…

I’ve taken my preggers legs from a march down to the city this afternoon. Call it an act of faith. For we are finally going to market. Actual markets. Those delightful almost-festivals that champion, celebrate and commercialise (i.e. make viable) everything local, bespoke and handmade. And I’m sitting here watching them set themselves up for [...]

the golden lining

I want to share my story: why I create the things I do, and what making beautiful things for my daughter and other little girls means to me. A beautiful mother I met when I was pregnant once told me something I have held to my heart like a sweet secret ever since. Through the [...]
