How are you on this chilly morning? It is starting to feel really wintery, I cannot believe it will be Christmas Eve a month today, these are my favourite few weeks of the whole year.
So talking of all things wintery, I have on the blog a bit of Christmas eye candy for you, in the shape of Charlotte Macey, a small textile and homewares company based in the heart of the Cotswold countryside.
Charlotte's beautiful illustrations adorn kitchen and table wares, home decorations, bags, wedding stationery, season gifts and bespoke designs...Charlotte says..
"It is here in my little studio that I find my inspiration, as I design and lovingly hand make each new cosy or tea towel, before sending them off to their new home!
I find constant inspiration in objects from the everyday, forming the basis of my designs. My illustrative stitch 'handwriting' depicts a menagerie of elongated and quirky items such as tea cups, beach huts and boiled eggs.
My range of homewares are entirely made by hand and I carefully source quality cottons and linens from around the UK to use in my work."
So lets have a look at Charlotte's very own Christmas Shop.
Totally gorgeous for the most exciting time of the year...I can just picture pretty parcels wrapped in ribbons and tags under a beautiful tree..(Im so ordering those fabric tree's to go on my big boy tree).
But the eye candy doesn't stop there...lets have a look at Charlotte's paper pretty..
"My wedding invitations are hand-drawn and decorated on a beautiful handmade card and are just perfect to request the company of your loved ones on your big day. Each card is individually illustrated by hand and therefore entirely unique. The cards I use are a beautiful quality and each card is mould-made with a hand torn deckle-edge and a corresponding envelope, each made by an Italian paper mill."
Totally gorgeous. I would love a bit of Charlotte Macey dropping on my door step.
But your treats don't stop there my final instalment is a little more pretty...this talented gal also designs a beautiful range of greetings cards and I have to admit to being totally in love with them, my favourite being the beach huts, I can almost smell the fish and chips.
