A little bit of new

We've been designing some new prints! And I've been having a great time taking photos of them all. Seriously getting some good mileage out of that sideboard. Best eBay purchase ever.

Read more about all the new stuff over at the I&S blog! It's Friday afternoon and I've run out of blogging mojo to write any more words :)

New prints and cushions in the shop.

My new "Blockprint" design - in Persimmon & Juniper (ceramics by Abby Seymour)

My new "Watercolour Stripe" design - in Toffee.

Watercolour Stripe and Leuca seem to make good friends.

Have a great weekend!! xx

Design Made Trade 2012

Ink & Spindle at Design Made Trade 2012

Back from Design Made Trade and amazingly still alive. It was rather epic, but so worth doing, and I feel so good about how the stand came together. I feel like it finally resembled something of a professional standard. New branding, nice furniture, some new prints (a rarity indeed), and generally looking fairly cohesive.

The only down side is that I know this feeling of "good enough" is only a fleeting one and it won't be long before I set the bar even higher. What's with that? It would be nice to just "be" for a little while, and just feel okay with what I/we have achieved. Sometimes I suck at perspective.

My beloved sideboard getting some love - yay! And Teegs' new Grevillea print on some refurbished Fler Chairs. And a rug by Patchy Rugs. And new prints on the cushions.

Instagram! Ceramics by Abby Seymour, Mustard colourways, Cut fabrics, The gorgeous REB, Paddy the Caddy (thanks Sass!) and my new iBark iPhone case.

You should see how much gorgeous Mid-Century furniture is going to be on our stand this year. Ohhh yeah.

Hiding on Instagram

Sometimes it's hard to find opportunities to take proper, "blog worthy" deemed photos. Sometimes the words just aren't flowing. For all those times, there's Instagram, and I love it (no surprises there). That's where I'm hiding most of the time, when I'm absent from this blog for weeks on end. You can find me under the username "laracameron".

Here's a snippet:

Hope to see you on there xx
