Tatty Devine: Turning life up to 11

I have been a huge fan of Tatty Devine for years, and I like to add new little pieces to my (not insubstantial) collection whenever I can - generally if they've got a sale on, or whenever they bring out a jewellery creation that I simply can't resist.


Currently I own the AARRGHHHHH necklace (which has just been re-released), a plectrum triple necklace, a Gilbert & George silhouette brooch, a wooden bunny rabbit brooch (natch!), a yellow 'B' brooch, the magpie earrings, mirror hexagon earrings, and a pair of tortoiseshell seabed anchor'n'chain earrings... I think that's it!


One of the long-standing items in the Best of Tatty Devine collection is the Volume Button brooch, and this has just been updated to go all the way up to 11! Genius. 




I've lusted after the classic version for quite a while, and now they've released the Spinal Tap tribute version I don't think I'll be able to hold out much longer.


In honour of the launch, TD have teamed up with The House of Hot Breath to create this fab promo video, which features loads of their jewellery throughout:

British Style Bloggers - Doing it for yourself

My second column for British Style Bloggers is now live. The theme this month is Doing it for yourself


I made bread in Cornwall. And mused about past unfinished projects.

Preparing for the frost

Yesterday I arrived home from a week's holiday in Cornwall to an auspicious red Royal Mail card on the doormat.


This morning The Boy popped to the Post Office and came home laden with ASOS parcels.


Today I have been snug as a bug in a rug.

I hope you're keeping nice and warm, wherever you are.

That was Halloween

The boy and I threw a chaos and candy party at our flat in Islington on the Saturday night before Halloween.


Something wicked this way came...
