So. Guess what I’ve been doing, inbeteween checking out awesome lego builds, cleaning up cat-sick, scraping Welsh mud off the outside (and INSIDE- YAY) of the car and engaging in super-polite passive-aggressive childcare diary-organisation with my better half? Go on. You’ll NEVER guess.

Oh. You got it. ERCOL COVERS. Check out lovely Harriet’s (and by lovely, I mean, SHE PAID ME MONEY. MONEY I CAN SPEND ON LEGO/ MUDDY CAR VALETS/ CAT LITTER) house up for sale in that London. I have no idea where all the detritus of modern living (lego, cat litter trays, car shampoo) has gone in this house. I can only assume she has moved everything into a bunker under the garden. Anyway, you will notice that this paragon of modern free-flowing living features TWO, count ’em, TWO Ercols what I fancied up. They look tiny in these pictures, but they were taken with an Estate Agent Camera (thus bending time and space). Honestly, my Ercol stuff is big enough for humans. It also looks pretty good in houses stuffed with stuff.

Do YOU have an Ercol that needs some TICKETY-BOODLING?

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.

Bannermania- Or How We Moved Workshops

Phew. I’m not doing that again. That is it. They are going to have to carry me out of this place FEET FIRST. Wrapped in a shroud of my favourite vintage brocade, born aloft on a pyre of half-renovated armchairs.

We moved. We have quadrupled our space and returned all the furniture scattered about in Bristol in other people’s garages/ spare rooms/ dungeons. The Diaspora has returned to the Promised Land. And yea, for that land was in Easton. And yea, they looked upon the Workshop and It Was Good.

You will find us in one of the workshops, behind these doors, at 10 Bannerman Road BS5 0RR. There is a telephone line, but no handset, as yet, so that is a secret. YES! We run a business WITH A SECRET TELEPHONE NUMBER. There is a dartboard. And an oche. Come and throw some darts while you feel the quality of the furniture. Do NOT throw the darts AT the quality furniture.

Blue Monday

It’s beginning to look like Tickety Boo has a schtick- making GORGE ERCOL COVERS. Check it- grey blue wool with blue piping. This is for Seralynne in Wales. What great taste those Welsh folk have. Got a knackered bit of  Ercol? Let Tickety Boo wave her magic overlocker and pins and do her voodoo thing…

Somewhere over the rainbow…

Just finished the new seat for Harriet- ooh those Ercol 2-seaters are a little bit wonderful.

Dressed with 2 of my new Rainbow cushions. My Sochi-unfriendly lovelies. Say it loud, I’m-lots-of-colours-in-a-dazzling-geometry, and I’m proud!

Time to PANIC

I don’t want to rock your boat, but you’re TOTALLY RUNNING OUT OF TIME to get a certain special other half/ mother/ mother-in-law/ dad/ sibling/ spoilt pet/ boss/ your good self a hand-made, cruelty-free, GIFT.  There’s been a bit of a last-minute flurry- but I’ve still got some l o v e r l y cushions for your happy bottoms (not all of them are on the website). Come and try ’em out- I’ll be at the workshop, in town, quite a bit this week. I’ll also be harnessing the reindeer and doing a drop of deliveries later in the week if you’re bed-bound and don’t trust the Royal Mail.

Happy Bottoms

As part of Tickety-Boo’s mission to make everyone more comfortable, we are having a quick clear-out, I mean, a seasonal sale. 20% off all cushions on checkout with the code: HAPPYBOTTOMS. We have also discounted some other items because, frankly, the workshop is becoming a hazard with all the furniture in it, in various states of undress. Make me an offer. We need the money- the kitten is eating us out of house and home and the boy is expecting LOTS of lego come Christmas.

Remember: we all deserve HAPPYBOTTOMS.

Merry Christmas from Kitty

Straight out of the sweatshop- a new cushion. Actually more of an icebox than a sweatshop. The sooner I can train my boy to operate a sewing machine, the faster you’ll get your piped products.

I’ll be doing a cocktail chair in a variant of this in the New Year. *hops from foot to foot*
