*~*Welcome May*~*

As we are at the begining of May hopefully which is going to bring some sunny days I have lots on my drawing board.. I am busy with goodies, Bears and such for the summer fairs ahead.. I am joined with my daughter this year and our different styles seem to match perfectly.. She is very much into the vintage look while I still steer more to the simple/primitive well worn look style.. So far we have had great success in our selling and lots of orders are coming in which is a great moral boost.. I have been designing some more "Most Treasured" items which are proving very popular as they seem to fit into any kind of decor..

I have some home decor plans too and I will be updating my bathroom and doing a dining room make-over along with my bedroom.. As you all know I do work a full-time day job so will have to juggle my time slightly to fit all I have planned in.. I will be sharing home pics soon so pop back frequently..

I will leave you with some pics of my latest creations these still need a few finishing touches that need added..

Thank you for stopping by *~*blessings*~*

New Attic Bear Designs


I have been spending lots of my free time at my design table.. I knew what I wanted to create and what fabrics I wanted to use but pulling it all together takes a bit of time.. This is my latest "MOST TREASURED " series from ATTIC BEARS.. They are very much in the prim style and look so old and loved.. They have been popular here in the U.K and I have also had an offer to supply a shop with my Attic Bears so exciting times ahead I think..

After looking at lots of bedroom pics and son number 1 giving me the spec he wanted.. A definate no no for anything too old looking.. We cleared the very small 9'X8' room totally and painted the walls with Farrow and Ball paint.. Dovetail is the colour which is a soft subtle grey.. His new black cast bed was built and the bedding adding.. Layered black and grey with a pop of red.. Next he needed a work area for computing and study.. I had an old door which was from the barn before the conversion years ago and suggested adding black metal legs a vintage style lamp and retro red stool.. Perfect was the reply from son number 1.. The poster we thought would add colour too and stop it becoming to monochrome.. His window is tiny too so a simple blind was all that was needed and I couldn't resist popping one of my handcrafted Old Look Pull-toy Elephants on the sill.. Lastly at the bottom of the bed he needed his entertainment system in place.. We added a couple of red retro clocks to continue the red pops here and there.. He is truly thrilled with how it turned out and his clothes and shoes are all stored under the bed in pull out boxes..

I do hope you have enjoyed our make-over journey with a very simple slighty industrial and very inventive use of space style LOL..
