SEEEEEAT the WOOOOOORRRRRRLD

It’s Christmastime. There’s no need to sit on the floor.

I’ve just stuck a bunch of l o v e r l y new Ercols up in the shop. There are some blondes, a moody grey number and something completely pretty in pink. Just like Molly Ringwald, but more comfortable to sit on. Some of these will be representin’ today at the Colston Hall Made in Bristol Gift fair. I will be upstairs, trying not to spend more money than I earn, batting off the bargain-hunters with my sang froid and general unavailability. Or else I will be asleep in one of the chairs, a victim of some senseless Seasonal mulled cider drinking.

Oh, what a wonderful thing to be, A healthy grown up busy busy bee…

Laydeez & Gennelmen, Tickety-Boo is proud to present for your delight, delectation and bottom comfort:

One BONKERS Cintique in raspberry with frankly alarming tribal detailing. I think I was having a funny turn when I put this one together. I was certainly feeling peculiar by the time I’d finished it. But that might just’ve been the fine paste wax.

And for pudding, get your cocktail shaker out- there’s this little B E A U T Y…

They’re all for sale.

I rather suspect the raspberry one will be for sale for quite some time.

“Oh, what a wonderful thing to be,
A healthy grown up busy busy bee;
Whiling away all the passing hours
Pinching all the pollen from the cauliflowers.
I’d like to be a busy little bee,
Being as busy as a bee can be.
Flying around the garden brightest ever seen,
Taking back the honey to the dear old queen.”

It seems as if the new workspace is conducive to beauty, if I don’t say so myself. See how a frankly disgusting brown ratty chair is transformed, ta-daa *waves wand*, into a nimble-ankled, Zoffany-covered, rinky-dinky-pinky poppet. Yeah, I KNOW!

Pretty as a Picture

Get mommy a cocktail.

This cutie-pie will be up for sale as soon as it stops raining and I can get some proper pictures up. That’ll be sometime in August 2013 then…

Pretty in Pink

I’m going to pipe the outside of this and hand finish it. Now, to wrestle with the box cushion.
