The lovely little market 'Cabbages and Frocks' in the churchyard at the top of Marylebone High St (opposite the Conran shop) always goes a bit quiet in the holiday time, especially when it is as wet as it was yesterday. Even the tourists just hurry through on their way to the warmer and drier shopping on the High Street.

Despite this, my new 'Rebecca's Cupboard' tote was a hit - everyone needs a good bag for shopping these days; my little contribution to the war against plastic. They are also also great for holidays and travels.
Available to buy HERE   quote BAG BLOG  at the checkout for 10% off until the end of August.

After my unplanned extended stay in the South of France my summer season belatedly kicks off this weekend with the fabulous Wimbledon Village Fair. Spread across the South side of Wimbledon common it is one of London's biggest free outdoor events. With everything from jousting to a dog show, delicious food stalls and of course a whole shopping village of interesting stalls.

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. 

The ethos for my business is inspired by my hero; William Morris whose vision was to link art to industry by applying the values of fine art to the production of commercial design, he was a key figure in the evolution of design as we know it today.

William Morris was an artist, designer, printer, typographer, bookbinder, craftsman, poet, writer and champion of socialist ideals. (Busy guy!)
