Top Drawer 2011 Round Up

25th January 2011
Top drawer kicked off the year and it certainly did not disappoint, oozing with inspiration it was great to see so many exciting products. 
Here are some of my favourite picks…

I am such a fan of Ary Trays, so I just had to have a quick snoop at the Michael Angove‘s spoon, feather and egg designs, never disappoints.

Speaking of trays I also loved the quirky designs from Jenny Duff, vibrant and fun!

How cool are these mugs from Cole of London? This collection of the monarch mugs is so fun, a great way to learn your history 😉

 There were so many great accessories as always from Wild & Wolf. I particularly loved the Rob Ryan collection which was no surprise really. Available to buy from Bloomsbury store.

I fell in love with the new Olympic range from Jan constantine. Flying the flag for Britain with these beautifully coloured cushions they were a real hit.

Speaking of cushions, I am a big fan of Michelle Mason, having featured her on my ‘one to watch’ series. Her collection is always fresh and up beat. Love the new Columbia road cushion, very sweet.

 With vintage right on trend, Granny Knits has it spot on. This is a new brand of contemporary cross stitch kits from the people behind Pearl & Earl. I love their products, full of nostalgic chic to drool over..

Betty Boyns have launched a new vintage gift ware range which is just exquisite, I also particularly loved their fabrics that were developed from this range.

Now here is a fun 100% cotton tea towel from Mibo. Have a dab at some of your inner crafts skill and have some fun making this cute lion into a cushion. They will be in stock in 4 weeks time!

 Having already posted about Hello Geronimo I had to feature it on my best picks as it was a real favourite of mine. Making artwork from buttons never looked so good.
I finally managed to meet Lorna Syson in the flesh and she is as lovely as her wall flowers. I have featured her work many times on my blog as it is so refreshing and new. I have to say seeing this aqua/teal wall flower in real life is even more magical. Absolutely loved it.
