Mystery Monday

When you spend a large part of your time meeting others that make beautiful things with so much love and care, who are nice people into the bargain, it is hard to not want to blow their trumpet for them.
My house is filled with one-off and unusual items, sourced form designers all over the world.  From jewellery to art to beauty products and homewares (and everything else you can think of), I love sourcing things that are unique and sometimes quirky.  Things that have sprung from someones imagination and then lovingly brought to life.
Therefore I would like to introduce my Mystery Monday where I will be sharing the work of some of those people.  Each week I will feature a different designer, who is busy imagining and making in some part of the world.  Hopefully you will be inspired to visit their website or blog to find out more.  It is exciting to think that in one small year I can share 52 of these people with you and it does make a change from talking about myself all the time!

So this Mystery Monday I would like to tell you about Sweet Cotton Threads run by Em Wallis.  Although I have never met Em in person, I have come to know her and her work through this virtual world that I sometimes exist in.
She has pretty shabby chic and vintage inspired fabric designs. 

For all you budding domestic goddesses there are a range of floral and gingham pinnies, ideal to keep you looking pretty next time you are baking your batch of cupcakes!  I particularly like this floral one with the pretty bow.

 When you are inviting friends round to share that lovely homebaking, make sure that you have some pretty cushions for them to snuggle in to.  Whether your home has a modern interior or a country cottage feel, Em has a range of cushions to suit every style.


If you have friends coming round, don't forget by pinning the details on one of Em's very handy and very pretty memo boards.

Em also has bunting, door hangers and bags all available to buy online in her shop.  New items available include summer bunting, picnic fleece rugs, picnic cutlery holders, light weight patchwork blankets, reusable ingredient bags.  With the perfect summer weather we are having at the moment these are ideal for stylish outdoor parties and picnics.
