These days my books are more useful to Goose than the are to me.

I love making things by hand – pillow slips, cupcakes, necklaces out of old pieces of costume jewellery that have fallen apart after one wear – you name it. I don’t get to do it as much as I would like at the moment, what with all the novel writing and other bits and pieces I do. The only thing I try to make nowadays is ends meet (wakka wakka).

Woeful jokes aside, I do love it (and am a little bit envious) when I stumble upon the incredibly talented people who make beautiful things for a living, such as Anna Evans and her Maggie Angus Jewellery. Here are two more that I’ve fallen for this week.

louise dungate:

Louise designs and makes hand-knitted accessories with luxury wools. Here are two of my favourite pieces from her ‘meadows and creatures’ collection.

A Alicia:

Founded by the ultra-talented Anna Alicia, this is a beautiful collection of co-ethical jewellery and homeware. I especially love the accessories.

      Me too! It’s a must have for me. And yes, that Goose is my kitten. Pretty, but dumb. The perfect daytime companion. I write, she grooms. It’s a match made in heaven. xx
