I must admit I was slightly inspired to create these prints as World Cup fever grew & the English flag fluttered from more & more windows. Maybe its bad timing to add them to the shop so soon after England were wiped out by the Germans (my mum's side of the family are German so I am not too sad!) then again maybe its the perfect time. To me they conjure memories of Charles & Diana's wedding, school summer fair's and of course I am just about old enough to remember free school milk. So come on lets celebrate all things nostalgic, English & wholesome.
Screen printed & hand painted with gouache by your truly, each design is limited to just 80 (70 still available) available now here & here.
'We Make London' was hot, hot, hot. It was held in Chelsea town Hall which is a beautiful building, but not very well ventilated! So sweatily I met lots of lovely people, including Tina from Tobyboo, who has been threatening for months to buy our Spring shorts outfit for her little boy. Meanwhile this has sold out, so she settled in the end on buying a pink Boo pinny which she is going to alter so she can wear it herself......watch this space! Her stall looked gorgeous, loving the long toy soilders and she had little tiny Tobyboo cupcakes to munch, yum.
She actually did it! Tobyboo we love you x
