felted with Kashmir shawls

I have just purchased a wonderful felted woollen blanket, fabulously rich colours.  Vintage kashmir paisley felted together with stripes of woollen felt in delicous fruity colours.  Found in a wonderful little shop in Woodbridge that was just oozing with colour.    Chatted away with Julie Phipps , a lovely lady who is most passionate about her products, we found that we both frequented Maison Objet in Paris and just how inspirational this exhibitions is, it puts our UK trade shows to shame………..

I found my way here because I was spending a long weekend in Suffolk, at a wonderful “dolls house” like cottage.  The owners were so attentive,  when we arrived the table was all laid up for tea with a delicous handmade victoria sponge taking pride of place on pretty cakestand.  Cosy pub lunches, walks by the sea, reading books by the fire, what more could one wish for………

 

 

Maison Objet in colour

Maison Objet, Paris trade Fair and a must for all “designers” .  Its just amazing, everything is done with great style…………

Took away various “threads” with me, one very colourful from one of my favourite suppliers, black and white and turquiose, old gold and matt black highlighted with a dusky pink purple.  Quite magical.

The following is a taste of the colourful.
