We have four new necklaces in the shop today featuring vintage chains, rhinestone buttons, chunky plastic gems and a vintage sparkling brooch
Also here is the funniest thing I’ve seen in ages!
In other news, I had a vision yesterday… I saw the edge of the universe! Okay, so I was really high, but I’m sure it actually happened. Watch this space…

I recently commissioned a portrait of my beloved pig by the fantastic MimiLove and it arrived today! It’s so so beautiful!
 She paints the most amazing pictures and actually stitches special details into the canvas; she describes herself as one woman, a needle, a paintbrush, a disturbing music back catalogue in her brain and too much time on her hands.
MimiLove is inspired by memories, misty watercolour memories, of the way she were, making stitchy, painty, musically, animally combo’s for home n personal adornment.
Big up one love!

An Epic Battle

9 Jan
Another blog post, another dead pet.
This time we are waving Little Frankie Wonder off into the sunset. Say hi to Pig for me. And so the wheel turns…welcome Moonpie!
She looks great in our new, completed studio!
Our very talented painter friends Joe and Tarian have been busy decorating the inside with a skronkalicious I.A.L.C and a giant squid embroiled in a battle to the death with a sperm whale… oh yes.

More pictures coming soon.

Goodbye Horses

13 Nov

Well…goodbye Mogwokamol-I-A :(She went to the vet for a checkup and they found a microchip. She had been lost for a while before Sarah found her and was really far away from home. I spoke to her owner on the phone and she had been so distraught, she thought she was dead.. so we did a good deed but we miss her so much 😥

On the plus side we have a new puppy called Frank– pictures coming soon! And we have been featured in a post about vintage and customised trends on Reach Students blog

Operation Power to the Pentagon is complete! And now all we need is the floor down, ramp and our boys to work their magic pimping the inside. We can’t wait, it’s going to look fanfuckingtastic. We shall post some photos when it’s all done. Here is a little clue for what’s in store:

We are getting rather excited with the progress on our lovely shed! Sarah is now painting the walls bright green and azure blue with a little help from our friends.
Here is a photo of how it looked a couple of days ago:
More good news — there is a new pussycat living with us here on The Parade! She is so so cuddly and has a really strange sounding meow. Here’s Mogwok:
