Feather Ideas

Probably slightly odd, but I do like to find a feather if I'm ever out on a country walk.... there is something quite romantic about them.....but I'd never really thought about the many uses of a feather....!

Some good reasons to collect feathers me thinks! :)

91 Magazine

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook you may have already heard about the other project I've been working on recently! If not, I'd like to introduce... 91 Magazine!
I am currently in the process of putting together a brand new online publication which will feature lots of similar things to what you find here on the blog, but much more indepth and with some lovely design, photography and illustration.
I'm really excited about it, and would love to hear what you think! Especially if you have any thoughts or feedback on the types of things you'd like to see in the magazine.
Mainly it will focus on Homes / Style / Vintage / Crafts / Shopping - so lots of lovely craft ideas, style tips and homes to ogle!
The first issue will be launching in October, and you can follow us on Twitter for updates in the run up to the launch.
Also, if you are interested in advertising your business/blog/shop/event in the magazine, our ads in the launch issue are super cheap, starting at £10 for a quarter page ad! Less than buying a round of drinks in the pub! :) Click below to see the website which will be hosting the magazine....

Embracing Autumn

As sad I as I am to see Summer fading away (or what we had of summer!!) I do quite like the transition into Autumn, getting out those woolly cardi's, picking out some new winter boots, and cosying up on the sofa.  Close your curtains to the world, light some candles, and snuggle down!

To brighten your day....

I'm just about to step out into lashing rain and blustering winds which always puts my in a bad mood! So before I do that I thought I'd post some beautiful photography by Hamburg based photographer Julia Hoersch... her work has certainly brightened up my day! Spotted over at Decor 8

The Merry Magpie Christmas Boutique!

As I mentioned, I've been working on a few projects of late, and now I'm excited to let you know about one of those and invite you to get involved, either as a seller or as a visitor!
After our first successful collaboration in June this year at the Soho Secret Tearooms, Patchwork Harmony & Y.E.S! London have decided to get together again in November to hold the Merry Magpie Christmas Boutique! We are looking for female run businesses, designers and makers to join us in selling their wares and services on Saturday 26th November 2011 from 12pm-4pm at The Book Club in Old St, London.  We are open to any kind of stall holders, from gifts, homewares, clothes, baked goods, handmade items or if you offer a service that you think might fit, such as a mini sewing lesson for example, then we want to hear from you! We will only have a limited amount of stalls due to space and we want to have a nice range of stalls, so we are asking everyone to apply by the 23rd September, and we will announce stallholders on the 30th Sept, giving you plenty of time to prepare!
the venue....
As we will be raising money for Dress for Success London again there will be a minimal stallholder fee and a small percentage of sales donation.. We hope to have lots of visitors coming along to have a fun day, have a drink, while shopping for some Christmas gifts! If you are interested in joining us, selling some of your products or services while helping a very worthwhile charity, then you can download the application form here and further info & terms here.Or drop me an email and I will send you the form and info. info{at}patchworkharmony{dot}co{dot}uk

A quick cuppa!

As I mentioned in my last post I am super busy at the moment, both my day job and other projects are crazy! I am excited to let you know a bit more about the things I've been working on hopefully this weekend! So keep an eye out!
In the meantime, just a quick post continued from the last one, from my lovely weekend in Glasgow.  Mainly because I had to mention the Hidden Lane Tearoom we visited just before I got my train back to London (literally accompanied by my suitcase and a bag FULL of car boot buys!) The tearoom is literally about 1 min from my friends lovely flat. and we were in there as soon as it opened so were the only customers, so we got to have a good nosy around! and take a few pics.....

 Very nice it was too!
