I have a new blog, dear people!! After nearly 5 years of working on All Kinds Of New, I am excited to be embarking upon a new venture with a very good friend of mine. Please check out our new joint ‘home’ at http://morningedit.com/.

ImageMorning Edit is an inspiring online ‘home’ for design-lovers, object-hoarders, print-admirers and for anyone who obsesses over even the tiniest of interior objects. So that’s you and us, guys!

Having worked together for over 7 years as Researchers in the publishing industry, sourcing new talent for both the global Interior and Stationery markets, Angie and I have embarked upon this exciting adventure of bringing together even more loveliness all under one roof for you to enjoy. We’ve been wanting to develop this for ages, and finally we’ve got things happening!

And so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come and visit us… our new home. Thank you so much for visiting All Kinds Of New and following my sporadic, creative ramblings… if you’ve enjoyed your time here then you’ll love Morning Edit even more!

See you soon!

I am so excited… My name is finally in print! Yes-siree!

Grab and cuppa, and check out the brand new issue of Paper Runway – an amazing, lovely Australian magazine which has only been in circulation for just under  year, and celebrates all things paper, art and craft-based! I have just started contributing features to Paper Runway which is both humbling and exciting! It’s a really lovely mag, available both online here and in certain stores worldwide (including Paperchase, Tottenham Crt Rd, London shortly – whoop whoop!).

It was such a joy to write for this magazine…my features with the wonderful Philip Sheffield and Barry Goodman can bee seen on pages 27 and 58, and their work looks fab, don’t you think?!!! Both Philip and Barry were very kind to allow me to interview them! Such lovely, talented gentlemen!

Issue 5 will be coming out in a few months time…watch this space for more installments!


 

I have just finished my ceramic beginners class – and I loved every minute! So much so that I have just signed on to continue again in September..(yay!). I thought I’d share with you what created..check out the following. They are a bit misshapen, and I have a LOT to learn, but I think i’m kinda proud (ish!):

I have just come across these beautiful shawls from Nicola Lokko – also known as My-Shell Me-Shell, and they look rather lovely, don’t you think?

Things to know about this gorgeous company and these gorgeous products include the following; they use rare breed sheep yarns, are UK based (sunny Brighton!), use local manufacturers, and use “lovely local hand-knitters” including Anne who is 70yrs old, and when isn’t knitting her wonderful shawls is often using up oddments to make blankets for the RSPCA.

Love it!!!!

(this is their box packaging…who wouldn’t want to receive a shawl in one of these!!)

I visited the ever-wonderful Cockpit Studios last Sunday in the rain…and boy, it was soooo worth it. I knew it would be! I floated from studio to studio in a wistful dream, wanting to take home all of the lovely creations on show. I have been doing a beginners pottery course every Monday for the last few months (an AMAZING present from my boyfriend – whoop whoop!) and am just in awe of anyone working with ceramics. And SO many can be found at Cockpit!

New to me (but maybe not to you?!) was the work of Shan Annabelle Valla below… Her porcelain birds were just gorgeous, and I am regretting not taking any home with me now! But there is an online shop (hurrah!). Check out her porcelain keys (especially the brooch)…and I am just head over heels with the ‘half’ busts; 5 cast busts, hand cut and arranged in frame. Beau-ti-ful!!

Here we have BUDDUG – another glorious find from yesterday’s trip to Pulse… I think these are gorgeous! If you’re London-based (or London-visiting!) then pop along to Jessie Chorley and Buddug’s shop in Colombia Road to check out their creations of hand made enamel jewellery & homewares (plus other delights). But fear not..if you are unable to make a visit, BUDDUG also have an online shop here! Result!

I came across these rather pretty ceramic pieces this morning at Pulse..and wanted to show them off ASAP. Aren’t they sweet? I really want the jug! Go to Tea with Bea to have a closer look.. They have lots and lots of different ceramic tableware pieces to drool over! (dribble dribble!)..

…for my recent absence!! I have been in the process of moving into our very first (purchased) home…and have been unpacking..and wallpaper stripping..and cleaning..(ooh – and even gardening!) and reshuffling…and a bit more unpacking..and another reshuffle!..and so have completely neglected All Kinds Of New! Please, my blogging friends, bear with me, as I have LOADS of lovely new things to show you! Watch this space!

I am in love with these! I have only just come across these items today, but am head over heels already! Seriously! Have a look at the Inkling Prints etsy shop here, or alternatively their direct blog here..  Each design is carved onto lino and individually hand-printed onto fabric, in the hub of the Inkling studio. Hubba hubba hubba!

Reminds me of my old lino-printing days at collage… ahhhhhhh… good times.. (though mine where NEVER as good as these.. not in my wildest dreams!)

I have given prices below in Pounds Sterling, but please go to the etsy shop to see alternatives, as all items are available for international shipping – hurrah!

 

I only came across Hannah Turner‘s ceramics recently, but wanted to share them with you ASAP! They are really adorable..and easily collectable (as I don’t know how I could pick just only one of them!). How cute how cute how cute! Prices start from around £28 upwards, depending on your chosen piece… and so have a look at the full range here!
