About Me

Hi there

thankyou for visiting my blog.I work from my lovely workroom at the top of the garden. I design and create beautiful handmade curtains, blinds and all aspects of soft furnishings including, pelmets, lampshades, valances and cushions. Mainly I work alone with the help of small team during busy periods.

In addition to the soft furnishings I have a huge passion for all things vintage. I adore decorative textiles, beads buttons etc.

Throughout the year I will be exhibiting at various handmade gift fairs and shows.

Our Cosy Den ❤

Since adding a tin roof we have used this area of the garden so much....either to keep shady on those hot days of late or to shelter from the storms and listen to the rain!

We have enjoyed the snow...



And the cosy indoors....
