The plum colourway of Mr.PS Happy Heart Hankies is featured in the May/June 2013 issue of Conde Naste Brides magazine.
I think it looks rather good with this model dressed in a Burberry contrasting heart shirt.
Are you planning a wedding? As I print each individual hankie and hand-mix the ink, I can print custom colours to compliment your wedding theme. Contact me to discuss a quote for kitting out the groomsmen with romantic and cheery pocket squares.
"For a taste of the seaside try this Lovely Lollies tea towel by Mr.PS"
This design is one of the Mr.PS classics, so I'm really pleased that it is has been selected to feature alongside the rest of the 'edited choice' which includes designs by Mini Moderns, Jamie Oliver, Fern Living and Peskimo.
Browsing in Waterstones, (yes I am still doing v.v. late Christmas shopping, eek) I spotted Perri Lewis' new book, Material World. Subtitled The Modern Craft Bible, it is full of inspiational projects, interviews and how-to's, and lovely illustrations by Kate Wilson.
And lo, in the screenprinting section, an "Insider Tip" from me...
(apologies for the bad phone photos)
Lovely to have Mr.PS included along with my screenprinting chums Bonbi Forest and Mr Wingate.
People who know me, or see me on the stairs at Islington Mill, where the Mr.PS studio is based, know that my day-to-day working wardrobe mainly consists of jeans, converse and tops in the summer, changing to jeans, DM's and jumpers in the winter. Usually with the addition of an ink-splattered body-warmer, printy apron, and in the colder months, a wooly hat. Hardly glamourous!
So imagine my surprise when Red magazine invited me to share "My Christmas Style" wth their readers in the December 2012 issue.
Never one to turn down an opportunity to don a pair of high heels and my party dress - I do dress up when needs must - here I am!
I am one of four creative women in this Seasonal Style feature, alongside Donna Wilson knitwear-designer-extraordinaire, and 2 others - and also in this issue is an interview with notonthehighstreet.com co-founder Sophie Cornish.
For the next couple of posts in my ongoing Shelf Sunday series, I'm looking at contemporary Danish design. Lovely.
A long weekend in Copenhagen has left me full of inspiration, having thoroughly enjoyed experiencing a slice of Scandinavian style.
Round the corner from our apartemnet in Østerbro we chanced upon ceramicist Gry Fager's new studio/shop on Randersgade.
When we first passed by, it was shut but I couldn't resist taking a snap on my phone of her beautiful window display of her wares.
Gry Fager designed and developed the Mormor collection for Danish design retailer Normann Copenhagen, inspired by traditional Scandinavian tea towels and dish cloths. (Mormor means grandmother in Danish)
But when I saw her range which features a fresh modern take on cross stitch, I was hooked!
Luckily on our next morning's walk, the studio was open, and Gry was busy at work, so we were able to spend a while ooh-ing and ahh-ing over her different vessels and designs, as well as having a nice chat.
Finally a decision was made as to what we could carry back to England, a present to ourselves for a special occasion.
And so here is our lidded jar here at home on the shelf.
I would have quite happily brought back any (or most) of her collection, but this sweet little jar with a mahogany lid fits in right at home, in the meantime I'll just have to wait until our next visit!
