The Linen Garden's Pottering Shop

... one of the most important avenues of running a business, particularly with a focus to spending most of your life 'on-line', is a wonderful community of like minded folk that is formed.  It is this little community that has sent me many a message, over the year, asking where I source my cut out florals and papers etc.... so one beautiful evening, this summer,  outside  my caravan I decided that in my settled month of December I would start to sell a few floral fancies and paper pretties. 
So I will be opening a store.  A hand made sort of haberdashery come papery collaging mixed with a sprinkle of creative gorgeousness kind of store/shop/place to hang out for creatives. 
 So this is what the studio currently looks like.  Filled with printed papers that have been further antiqued and dyed.  I am just about to set up dye baths filled with ribbons and lace, all in preparation for the first week of December when The Linen Garden Pottering Store opens its little doors.
 So every fortnight or month I will re-stock the shelves, all will be small collections of gatherings and makings, for you to further the creative path and transform purchases into new products or simply style within your home/workplace or transform a tired piece of furniture or clip into a scrapbook - endless avenues and paths to wind away the hours of decorative play.  .... I will announce the opening date of the online shop next week. (which is open to uk and international clients) x

... I love this time of year.... although I adore the floral offerings that Spring and Summer bring .. I am at heart a cosy cardi girl ... I love layerings of clothes and wrapped up walks ... so the stillness of green and wood that the autumnal/wintry seasons bring I find strangely calming.  To have branches and twigs and seedheads in vases and wreaths of greenery on the wall ... to appreciate the simplicity in life ....

remember, remember, the 6th of November

...remember, remember the 6th of November as I can now 'officially' mention the word 'christmas' me old fashioned but I don't really like to over mention the festive season until the last firework has sparkled. over the next few weeks I will be taking orders for bespoke products (I will introduce something new each week) - I will also be previewing pretty signs, christmas cards, gift tags and christmas cake ribbons over on my Facebook page before listing them on the shelves of my Etsy store later this month. here are the first of the pretty bespoke linens on offer as little stocking fillers, gifts or place names for christmas lunch.... These little pillows are approx 8cm x 8cm and are decorated with vintage and liberty fabrics as well as little embellishments of haberdashery here and there... They are £5.50 each (minimum order is 2) and are filled with lovely lavender.  So all you have to do is email me over at to place your order and let me know which names you require or they can be made with a simple word such as 'happiness' or 'friendship'.  If you have any questions let me know in the comments below..... Please note these are all one off 'hand-mades' so no lavender pillow is the same.....
