Limited Edition BlueTit Lampshades

You know I love barkcloth. You know I love lampshades. But even I didn't know until recently that I actually love making lampshades out of other fabulous textiles.

One of the more notable " you gotta let me make a lampshade out of that" moments came the first time I saw the beautiful applique work of Cathy Emmot aka Dear Emma Designs.

Fortunately for me Cathy didn't dismiss me as a complete loon and shared my excitement at the thought of waking to a little bedside lamp adorned with a few cheeky bluetits helping themselves to the cream from the newly delivered milk bottles.

Dear Emma Designs is one of those success stories you want to read about everyday. Very talented Mum somehow finds the time amongst family life to create adorable products with time,care and love. Cathy is also a super nice person. I'm a big fan.

I'm delighted to say that a full "bosom" of tits  safely made the journey back from Sussex to Yorkshire.

They can now be found amongst a whole host of other DearEmma goodies this weekend at the rather marvelous looking Saltaire Arts Trail 2012. Twitterings indicate they are selling fast.

Not within striking distance of Saltaire in time? Never fear a VERY limited number of blue tit applique lampshades are now available to pre-order in the FollyandGlee shop.

  2. Ohhh they are just fantastic!! :)
