Au Maison Have Done It Again

In stock now, this fantastic new oil cloth from Au MaisonPerfect for when the sun eventually comes out but if that doesn't work, at least it helps keep the table clean with the school holiday's looming. 

With new floral, stripy & spotty design's we couldn't be more thrilled (I particularly love the scarlet stripe design. It makes me think of summer, lolly pop's and seaside fun!)

Good Friends Need Telling!!

I am a pretty lucky lady & have a fine selection of the most perfect collection of friends. They come from all walks of life & play different roles in my life as I am sure I do in there's. This doesn't mean to say I have 'millions' of friend's, yes I have a lot of friends that are brilliant for a great night out, the odd coffee catch up & general fun & frolic's and they mean the world to me. In fact, without them perking up my day, I can imagine it would be pretty glum. But the friend's I am talking about here are the ones I only get to see on an 'ad hoc' 'when we can' basis because of distance, time, career's & family life. Despite this when we do it's like it was yesterday. Time stands still for these friend's. No matter what as happened we can simply pick up and carry on where we left off. The friend's that don't judge (but don't always condone), know when to tell you the truth & when to keep stum. These friends, these crazy, forever true, emotionally loving, walk on coal for you, doesn't matter if I haven't seen you in a year, I'm here now friends; these are what make my life complete & the one's I truly cherish (and without naming them they know who they are) xx Love you xx

Oil Cloth Fabric? Just Wipe It Clean

Au Maison..... We love this fabric

Ooooh those gorgeous clever Danish designers at Au Maison. Yes we have almost sold out of or original order and the second one is on its way and we couldn't be more excited! When we found it my inspiration was a notion that it would be used in summer days spent outside basking in the sun with friends & wine. So fa that doesn't seem to be how its turned out. However its still as popular as ever with customers using it every day to simply keep there table clean and free from stains & spills. This fabric is great, oil cloth fabric in classic and fun prints is perfect for everyday use indoors (those messy kids over the Summer holidays) and perfect for transferring outside when  (I say this with a heavy heart) the weather allows a little afternoon tea in the garden, simple pleasures (we hope)!

Ps we are getting a few more designs in stock so keep coming back and checking them out... stripy reds, floral over blue dots & pretty english classics.....
