Homeware – almost in my vice-like grip
I am trying to find more colourful ways of wording the patience I have had to self-implement – as well as the subsequent satisfaction I have been experiencing. And this time of year, my vocabulary is less than adequate. Apart from the plethora of swearwords that I resort to – to counteract this condition in my word bank.
Hence… you may find this post short… but very sweet. Hopefully.
After the initial battle to find a suitable manufacturer for the Blueberry Hill homeware range – the war is won! Prototypes of a beautiful standard arrived (on time) last week. It’s tremendously strange looking back at your sketches at this point – because the line drawing has been turned into an object. A couple of tweaks, and early 2010 should see porcelain proliferating various retail halfway houses and drinking holes.
At this point – I must just mention that Scarlett o’Hara was the inspiration behind the Toast Saucer. She always nibbles on her husband’s morning toast – before he can have a bite – because “she can’t carry it all”. Well, now the eternally-indebted-to-me husband can have his toast, and Scarlett, can have hers.
Will keep you updated on final releases etc.
