The whole country seems to be gearing up for the Royal Jubilee, there's a buzz in London as shops and streets bring out the bunting.
If you are planning to dress up and celebrate this weekend, I recommend you wear this amazing headscarf by the ever talented Vicki Murdoch from Silken Favours. Snap yours up quickly in store and online at Liberty. I've heard the Queen even has one too, and I'm sure she's putting in some orders for the corgis! Perhaps "one" will wear it when sailing down the Thames this Sunday!

Last week I had fun photographing these gorgeous silky animals for Vicki Murdoch the creative talent behind Silken Favours. Her current Spring Summer collection is available at Liberty online and in store. I also had a brilliant time helping out with her recent window display in Liberty, featuring some of these fabulous friends.

I spent this Saturday at the opening of Field Work, the Pop Up Shop co-curated by my housemate Caitlin Hinshelwood with fellow textile designer Rose de Borman. The shop is located in Shorditch on 54 Rivington Street London, and is open from the 10th - 18th December. There is a special open evening on the 15th.
My photos don't really do it justice, it is just the most beautiful shop I've ever seen. Showcasing an exciting selection of beautifully crafted products from independent British designers and artists, alongside folk art pieces, and stocking fillers from recent trips to Mexico and India. The shop is filled with colourful treats for a delightful Christmas shopping experience.
There is a large selection of printed textiles, (including some pretty amazing cushions) knitwear, stationary, antiques, original artwork and curiosities. Some of my favorite things are the smallest, like the indian spinning tops and papier mache dolls. Rose's dog Tina is also helping out, making sure everyone has a cuddle and sniffing out any stray mince pies.

Last weekend I went to the awesome Renegade Craft Fair to hang out with my housemate Victoria Jane on her stall Gift Wrap HQ Inspired by a recent trip to Japan, a love of stationary and gift giving.
Gift Wrap HQ was on hand to give attendees the opportunity to creatively wrap their purchases at the fair, and help give something back by donating all money raised to the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal. Victoria put a huge amount of effort into making the stall look fabulous as you can see from my snaps. A little birdie tells me there are more beautifully wrapped events coming soon so I will keep you posted!
