Tea For Two in Blue & Grey

Yup. I got me ANOTHER of these bad boys. Your classic Ercol  two-seater, tricked out in Camira Craggan 100% wool. One side in grey, t’other in blue so you can ‘express your individuality’, just like Nicolas Cage in ‘Wild At Heart’. Did I ever tell ya that this here jacket, ahem, sofa, represents a symbol of my individuality, and my belief in personal freedom? Well IT DOES. Was that Cage’s own hair? I’m completely obsessed with Nicolas Cage’s hairpieces. Oh. I think I’m gettin’ a little off message here.

*Pulls self together*

For sale now on the ole Tickety-Boo website and through those mercenary clustercusses at Ebay.

Back To School

OK. So, we made it through the summer holidays without a murder, or even a call to Childline. *Pats self on back*. We’re back in the workshop. We’ve sharpened our scissors, picked up our pins and dusted down the bag of emergency jelly babies in anticipation of getting some work done which doesn’t involve LEGO, glue-sticks, mud or bicycles.

First up, I’ve been splashing out on  lots of a m a z i n g african print fabrics. Mostly for fashioning bonkers frocks for myself, but some accidentally slipped and landed on this enormous feather cushion. BRAVO! Tickety-Tribal?

Next up, this GORGE Ercol 2-seater. Pimped out in 100% Camira wool weave, with a blue reverse, for your more colourful alter-ego. Fed up with the original back cushions, which totally hide the beautiful back spindles, I went a bit crazy with the electric turkey knife (whoops, there goes another trade secret) and a mahoosive block of foam to create *drumroll, please*, my very own lozenge back cushion. Pretty nifty, non?

And finally, I finished Yael’s chair. Sorry Yael. I know it took AGES- but when the client wants PLUM trim and more buttons, well, I think you’ll agree, it was worth the wait. It has to be said, the original chair was pretty gross, so I think we nailed it. This chair will be on view in Yael’s house this weekend on Bristol’s Green Doors Weekend. Yael has done some amazing hemp and lime insulation and plasterwork. Go and admire it. BUT DON”T BE SITTING ON THE CHAIR. For more about Bristol Green Rooms see http://www.bristolgreendoors.org/
