...AWAY...we go...with Julie

It must be that she makes me see the world a little differently, 
or maybe see the sweeter and bittersweet sides 
with equal consideration and kindness...


...but I am simply smitten with the new, and happily imperfect and utterly charming things that have arrived from Julie Arkell's London studio....


I have worked with Julie for so many years now...is it 10 or 12...
and in that time, I am still consistently amazed 
when I hold one of 
her creations in my hand...
the lovingly hand built paper mache
the simply stitched pinafores...they send me



I could live in a house just like this...simple and sweet


...here are some of my faves from the new grouping...
all are characters that spring from her new book "AWAY"...or are inspired by her new explorations from current projects...
 
and yes, copies of her first book "HOME" are back in stock... along with the new book...though availability is limited...




details on all of these and more are on her pages of the site...CLICK HERE









Thanks Julie for this wonderful new grouping of work...
it's an honor to work with you
xxoo Jen
