{Vintage Notebooks}

I have been busy planning and creating new ranges for Sesame and Lilly this month.

I have been a textile/ print designer for 10 years working within fashion and interiors.

My true love, as you can tell, lays within antique textiles and prints.

I have a huge collection of these which i use to inspire me and also to create new artworks.

I have decided to share some of these wonderful antique prints as a collection of A5 notebooks

I would love to have your feedback on which designs you like- to begin with the collection will consist of 5 designs.

Each notebook will be A5 with a Sesame and Lilly paper banner around the notebook to protect it until the time comes for you to use it.
Happy Weekend!

Sesame and Lilly antique lace jewellery is now starting to appear online.

I am having a re-focus with Sesame and Lilly, with jewellery being the main products area from now on. 
I will still produce limited edition cushions alongside the jewellery.

{Under the thatch}

This week my lovely husband and I visited Wales, staying at a beautiful 17th Century cottage recommended to us by the lovely Jeska at Lobster and Swan.
Situated on a sunny, sheltered little plateau right in the Black Mountains on the eastern side of the Brecon Beacons National Park, the cottage has a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

 With a stone tile roof, faded limewashed walls, and an amazingly well preserved 17th Century oak screen.
Although the weather was pouring most of the week we still ventured out to nearby towns, one of our favourites being Hay-on-Wye- full of lovely cafes, lots of bookshops and amazing produce shops.

More photos to come, but for now one of myself- wearing the biggest waterproof coat (way too big for me), walking rucksack and boots. 

Those that know me well, know that I am certainly not one for 'sensible' clothing, so my husband was super surprised to get me into this attire.

What didn't surprise him though, was the fact I still wore red lipstick, even half-way up a mountain side!

If you would like to stay at this wonderful cottage, which i highly recommend, details can be found here.

Happy Weekend
