We had a lovely day at Leamington Pump Rooms for the Vintage Chic Wedding Fair last Sunday. It was a beautiful venue, full of fab suppliers with a love of the glamorous looks of times gone by. Our letterpress stationery was particularly popular with the vintage-loving brides attracted to the authentic look and feel of old-fashioned printed stationery. But our other ranges went down a treat too. Here are some of the other exhibitors from the day who […]

In some ways the Countdown music going round in my […]

This week I had a hankering to create some wedding invitations with a geometric theme, and opted for the classic design element, the chevron. Chevrons are just cool. I have a hot pink lampshade with white chevrons going around it and I think it makes my house look instantly more with-it (although saying with-it is probably not very with-it, but anyway).
