St Jude's Prints

Rather excitingly, it appears that one of our favourite galleries, St Jude's in Itteringham, has just launched an online print store! We have been poring over the limited edition prints on sale, and have really fallen for the work of Peter Green OBE which will be available to purchase from 24th October.

New St Jude's Sketchbooks

We have just received these brand new St Jude's sketchbooks designed by celebrated printmaker Angie Lewin. I think these will make wonderful gifts at Christmas time.

Famille Summerbelle Maps

We are massive fans of Famille Summerbelle's quirky collection of prints and cushions. Do check out these lovely new city maps available from their online shop.

Highland Stoneware

We were in Edinburgh over the weekend for a fantastic family reunion, and we stumbled across gorgeous crockery by the Highland Stoneware company. Each piece is hand-painted and therefore totally unique. My favourite design was the thistle and bumble bee and I have a feeling the mug will be on my Christmas wish list!
