Happy Monday to everyone! Hope you have all had a lovely weekend? I thought I would start the week with something bright and cheery but there is a little story behind this post...On Friday I had a very nice e-mail from Mel of the wonderful Mel Made This, she had popped by my blog here and wondered if I was interested in her work for a possible post? Well this is the first such e-mail I have ever received here at littletree 'headquarters' and was of course delighted to say yes, although it wasn't a hard decision because her work is so amazing!
Of course you know I'm a sucker for anything vintage, fabric, furniture, kitchenalia...the list is endless! But I particularly love Mel's work because, as she says herself, 'I believe strongly in re-cycling furnishings wherever possible, and complimenting them with the use of modern trimmings and fittings to restore pieces to a new glory.' This ethos is really up my street, I always spy bits of run down furniture, fabrics etc and want to buy them all and give them a new lease of life, but I would just end up with a house packed full of stuff because I'd want to keep it all!
Anyway here is a selection of Mel's lovely furniture and accessories, I love the fabric wrapped chairs, such a clever idea for sad, battered old chairs other than paint! Plus who wouldn't want one of the little lavender filled 'gonks' to keep your clothes smelling delightful and make you smile? If your interested in seeing more of Mel Made This (how could you not be!) then please pop by her website or Etsy shop, she is also exhibiting at the show Handmade in Britain in London at the end of October. Thanks again Mel! x
