Fathers Day Gift Guide

With Fathers Day just around the corner (18th June), I thought it was perfect timing to put together a Fathers Day Gift Guide.

I hope you enjoy this gift guide as much as I have enjoyed putting it together – I need to now narrow my selection and buy something.

For the Father who loves gardening:

Botanic Tribe are an indie brand who sell a curious collection of houseplants and greenery gifts. I also love their quirky botanical-theme prints.

They have a great range of mens products including this beer themed gift hamper, which includes a handpoured Beer scented candle, a beer scented soap in travel tin and a handmade Whiskey & Chocolate lip balm.

For The Dad who Loves a Personalised Keepsake.

Sorry… A little bit of self promotion (whoops!). My personalised cufflinks are going down a treat for Fathers Day this year.

I hope this post has given you lots of inspiration for Fathers day!

October 5 – Review and Honeyfair

Today is Wednesday October the 5th and Callingtons Annual Honeyfair.

I had a lovely time with the hubby and Amelia-Jayne wandering around looking at the stalls and brought some great stocking fillers for both girls (Amelia-Jayne is only 15 months so no idea about Christmas and stocking fillers!)! Then after school nipped round again with Chloe on route to drop orders at the post office and got the mandatory bag of candyfloss in pink and blue. 🙂

Customer Review

I love receiving feedback for my porcelain bowls, this lovely feedback is for a set of 3 pearl nesting bowls from my etsy shop.

October 4 – Making Porcelain Bowls

Where does time go? Today has flown by!

I thought I would show you a picture of my workshop / garage, ignore the mess, it needs a good tidy up! 🙂

The kiln on the right is the one I have filled and am currently bisque firing in. The bowls on top of the other kiln are the bowls I am firing over night.

You can see in the far corner some of my plaster molds filled with porcelain slip – after 10 minutes they will be emptied, then when they release from the mold I will finish the bowls.
