Merry Christmas...


Well it’s been a hectic but fabulous run up to Christmas for me this year. Our first Christmas with a little one and an extra busy season of fairs for Tattered Rose!

I’ve enjoyed every second but couldn’t have done any of it without the help of my wonderful family and friends – I seem to say it a lot but they really are fantastic! –helping practically with loading, setting up and emotionally with lots of support and reassurance!

I can’t wait for the new year, there will be a re-launch of the Stampbord collection, some experiments in newness (I’ll keep you posted!) and a little January SALE!

I hope everyone has a fantastic Christmas,

Cute little Owl necklaces.....

Here's some more newness.................all ready in time for the fabulousplaces Christmas Market which is this weekend!

I love this event, It's the third year I've exhibited and it just gets better! It's so lovely to see the other stands, catch up with fellow sellers and customers, browse the lovely selection of items available and get that festive feeling!

Anyway.............here's the reason for the post!
Owls are everywhere at the moment and these charm necklaces are my little nod to the trend! They're either in antique silver or antique brass on 18'' chain, the actual owl is just less than 3cm long and the necklaces have 3 little glass beads for a splash of colour. 

I've made a some more little charm necklaces similar to these with little sewing machines, keys, bows and a few other cute charms, they totally capture the vintage spirit that I love so much!

If you're local, I hope you can make it along to the Christmas Market, it really is worth a visit!

Hi there!



Blimey, it’s been a while! Please accept my apologies for the lack of posts, it’s getting to that wonderful time of year where things get rather busy!

I have quite a few events to look forward to (see details here)

My Tattered Rose Tea Party concept has been really well received; I’m really excited about these as there is always such a great atmosphere!

I had such grand plans for a number of new designs and products ready for the festive season but time is just too tight so these will be put on the back burner – something to concentrate on in the New Year!

That doesn’t mean there aren’t any new things to show off – I’ll be posting picture of new necklaces, bracelets and other pretty things as they make it off the work bench!



As a post isn’t really a post without a picture.....................here is a sneak peek of some newness..........!

Vintage and Handcrafted...

This weekend is the Vintage and Handcrafted Fair at Southwell Garden Centre.  A new event for me but one I'm looking forward to!
I've managed to replenish some stock - including these brooch pins which always become popular at this time of year! (these few were done while Heidi was having an unusually long 45 minute nap - she must have known mummy was busy!)
Alongside my handmade jewellery (after the success of the last batch!) will be some more scarves, my favourites at the moment are these gorgeous snoods, they're lightweight with a beautiful vintage style floral print...
(I have lots more beautiful scarves and will share pictures soon!)

So fingers crossed for a lovely weekend, hope to see you there!

Farewell September...



September has always seemed like an action packed month, from back in the day when it would be going back to school time along with a few family birthdays and now our wedding anniversary.  This particular September has probably been the busiest (and the best) EVER!

 Lovely weddings, special birthdays, a baby growing up very fast (too fast!) and the expansion of the hand picked accessories for Tattered Rose!

The most memorable part was our first family holiday.  It was a holiday like no other we’d had before but very special.

So onwards to October, let the thoughts of Christmas begin (sorry if that frightens anybody!)

Did someone say party..........?



So, I love a party.......tea, cake, champagne- whatever! Add to that some friends and Tattered Rose goodies- what could be better?!

I’m launching Tattered Rose Tea Parties.  Just for Derbyshire folk at the moment (the Tatty wagon is being dreamt up as we speak – think camper van meets ice cream van meets Eddie Stobart lorry!)

A great chance to do some shopping in comfort, on a day or evening of your choice with great hostess benefits!
If you’re in the Derbyshire area and would like to host a Tattered Rose Tea Party please get in touch!
