an exuberant newby

well well well 
i have been working on a new bag

and its finally ready!

so happy to be showing it off  
after testing it out myself

the knitting is 100% wool and 
with a sturdy round base and 
drawstring opening it is 
and pretty!

my favourite detail is the fringed strap which
will only be available for a select few of the bags
due to limited supply.

this new shape can be found in both single strap and backpack
strap styles...

they are currently available in Dagmar Rousset 

but hopefully within the next week they will be available in our
other stockists

NOTE: our full listing of stockists hasn't been updated
on our website quite yet (will be soon though!) 
so for full stockist listing please refer to our facebook page

if you wish to make any enquiries my contact details can be
found here so feel free to get in touch

merry Friday to you exuberant beings!

over and out x

oh how I do love to
add more and more things
and sometimes
its hard to know
when to stop

this got me thinking about
its a word i really like
the sound of
the meaning of

its meanings in different contexts
took me on a little explore

a phrase I found that I like

i like this one because 
i mostly think of the word in relation
to visual art 
but there is something really nice
about its use in an aural context

you know how you have those friends
who know how to tell stories really well...
I am not one of these people but I know some 
wonderful creatures that are.
I have a friend who would tell you a story about
something mundane like going to the supermarket
but somehow with his embellishment it becomes
this captivating, wondrous journey...
you sit there in awe, content to listen 
and the thing is 
its not like he isn't telling the truth
its just the way he tells it,
the details he gives,
his expressions 
make it so interesting somehow...
it certainly is a gift

now this is the one I know best...
its something i find oh so addictive
adding trims, embroidery, fringing, beads,
obscure items...
anything really!

its a whole process of which I enjoy every part

finding special unexpected pieces of wonder

discovering the ideal place that it should be

attaching it carefully with my own to hands 

allowing it to become a part of something bigger

seeing it amongst all the other collected craziness in 
a piece that works magically

it makes makes me so happy
oh how i have blabbered on!

I must be off but 
expect another post soon with a new
product for your eyeballs

peace out x

the haunting beauty

i pause beside the logpile...

wondering if it would be too intrusive 
to go talk to him.

I am curious

about his life here

and the wild life of the woods,

like him,

I am also happy with my own company

(From a book
 I have perhaps quoted from
 far too many times...
 A journey through Trees)
