More Tea Vicar? Divine Inspiration for my Homeware Range

Rockwife 'More Tea Vicar?' Tea Cosy

As some of you may know, I moved Studios last month; I really love the new space, but it is very much a work in progress. I promise to post some 'Before & After' shots when there is an 'After'!
I'm sure we've all been there "Oh, it only needs a lick of paint"........

Miss Roxy Dog demonstrates her DIY skills

As you can see, Miss RoxyDog has been lending a paw. I have my cutting table and machines set up and I believe Hard Hats are terribly à la mode this season so it's all good.

A change of space and location inevitably lead to new ideas and creative challenges, and an idea that's being brewing in the dark recesses of my mind seems to finally have taken shape, possibly due to my new vista.

My new studio is opposite the Parish Church and although I've only witnessed one wedding so far, I do get to hear the quarterly chiming of the Church Bells everyday and I've also seen a Terrier in a blue coat who attends two services a week.

I've been toying with the idea of developing a Homeware range for about a year. I liked the idea of 'Homespun Anarchy', sort of Cath Kidston meets Banksy; maybe my new Atelier has provided me with some Divine Inspiration?

I currently have a Homeware Range in development (for the record that translates as me drinking Tea and procrastinating) and will be launching the first products on April 13th via my Etsy Store:

I do hope you'll pop along and check out my wares!
