Dearest Spring

Spring flowersDearest Spring,

Where have you been hiding? I’ve been waiting for 1 whole year now. I was expecting you here on 1st March, you know the first day of spring. I expected you to stay last week when you came round for a brief visit. I’ve done everything you ask, I cleaned my house, got all of those odd jobs done, tidied the garden, bought fresh flowers, finished my wall gallery, polished my chandelier, bought fresh flowers. I bought myself some pretty summer dresses too, so please don’t tell me that you’re not coming. Not that I don’t like your brother Winter, but to be honest, he’s not really my type, he’s been hanging around since last september and he can’t stay here anymore.

Anyways, let me know if you lost my address –  I’d hate for you to get lost.

Love Made With Love Designs

On trend grey concrete mini vase makes the perfect little versatile vase for displaying mini cactus or succulents or also pen desk tidy. Isn’t she pretty….

Cool little concrete grey mini vases that can display pens, mini cactus plants, succulents with gold brass bottom trim & twine rope to hang

 

This hanging planter is made out of concrete with a strip of metallic gold to the bottom.

This concrete hanging planter looks cool on any desk as a pen pot desk tidy. It looks equally stylish hung on a metal wire wall caddy or on bulldog clips as we’ve styled in the pic.

 

 

Made from on trend concrete with a trimming of gold brass it can be stood or hung to give a great effect. The gold brass plant pot is a great way to add a bit of trend into the home or garden.

Tip: if using as a planter, we styled with a well known Swedish homestore’s set of 3 mini cactus’ which fit perfectly in their plastic pots & look super.

We love! We found these gorgeous golden picture frames on a recent European buying trip, fell in love & brought them back to the UK for you to buy.

These frames are so versatile for displaying photographs, memories, tickets, pressed flowers, feathers…oh & did we mention they’re in the seasons hottest gold (also available in a smaller size in copper frames here).

This rustic picture frame is a beautifully versatile piece that can be stood either portrait or landscape.

They can be used for a photographs and displaying memories. I filled with our marble prints, feathers & pressed flowers for the photography shoot. But whatever little pretties you want to show off, as long as they’re flattish, these frames work well. They make the perfect gift too! £18.95

New Photography Studio

Hooray, we finally opened office number 2: aptly numbered ‘2c’ The Photography Studio a few weeks back. It’s separate from our actual design studio and we are thrilled to have such an amazing space to photograph in.

We are now able to shoot products properly without having to set up scenes each time, which normally happens in the office around existing work, climbing over each other for space. Setting up & tidying up each time we had a batch of new products to shoot, which was almost weekly – & this wasn’t ideal.

We have rough & rustic concrete backdrops, glossy panelled walled backdrops,  lots of plain white wall space & surface space, as well as lighting so no matter what the weather, great shots every time.

The studio is still not finished according to plan but is functional and working. We’ll post proper pictures of the finished studio soon. As well as details on how you can use the studio for your own small business needs & cool product photography. Clare will also be writing tutorials on creating the ideal product photography shots for the novice, getting your whites white (even with artificial lighting) & how to make your products pop! Details of which will be coming soon.

 

Thanks Mum for everything you have sacrificed and done for us. Thanks for all of the Sunday dinners you made, all the tantrums & back chat you put up with. Thanks for all the cleaning, tidying, caring, wiping tears & wiping bums. It’s only now we’re parents ourselves that we realise what you actually did for us.

It’s not just today but all year round that we think about you and thank you.

To those Mum’s that are just around the corner & those who are no longer with us. Happy Mother’s Day you marvellous things!

Nothing quite adds life to a room than a plant.

If you don’t have plants in the home, you don’t actually miss them. It’s only when you add one, you realise it’s what the space has been crying out for. Adding a plant is an instant Spring update.

Brass gold hanging planterInstant spring update: add a plant in a pretty brass planter of course!

 

And you don’t have to be a green fingered goddess to embrace plants in the home.

Succulents & cactus plants work well in this beautiful brass planter.

As well as a huge selection of indoor ferns that need very little care.

We love this new metallic gold hanging planter in brushed brass.

The planters look great as a stand alone piece or can be set up as a group hung at different heights from a ceiling hook for a stunning effect.
