Upcoming Christmas Fair

We are thrilled to be included in this wonderful festive event in the beautiful village of Tilford, Surrey on Friday the 16th November, supporting Breast Cancer Now. There will be over 30 unique tempting stalls ensuring it will be successful fun evening starting from 7pm with a chance to get some Christmas shopping done with a yummy helpful glass of bubbles in hand…….

Do hope to see some of you then but if you cannot make it, my studio in Rowledge is open for private browsing. Last orders for bespoke Christmas presents is Monday 19th November.

Wishing all my clients a happy and joyous build-up to Christmas.

New Winter Products

Flossie & Bumble HQ has been fairly quiet over the summer concentrating on the latest arrival to the family, 2 legged, not four!

But now Christmas is on the horizon we are getting lovely and busy and have designed new Festive Dachshund Notecards of two wire-haired sausages with little red noses and cosy scarfs surrounded by a jolly wreath of hydrangeas, thistles and berries.

Grey is also proving a popular colour choice this Autumn with a lot of private commissions for Home Wares. Our favourite is this country themed linen with smart hares on by Dunelm.

Our next Christmas fair is in the pretty country village of Crondall in Hampshire in their lovely village hall on Monday 6th 6.30 – 8.30pm and Tuesday 7th November 10-4pm.

The festive season has started with a bang here at Flossie & Bumble HQ with a lovely little feature in 25 Beautiful Homes December Magazine on our old flat in London.

Hello Hampshire!

So we finally took the plunge and have escaped London to the picturesque and quintessentially English countryside village of Crondall near the historic market town of Farnham.

We have a little river in the garden so get woken up by chatty quacking ducks in the morning, I pick fresh roses every day for the kitchen table and buy  delicious homemade bread from the wonderful village shop. It’s all rather heavenly and we feel like we are in an episode of the Vicar of Dibley!

Obviously  the first thing I did was to make some new country cushions for the day bed using gorgeous farm animal fabric.

The second thing I did was to make a (slightly wonky) wigwam so Wilf and Bumble have some shade in the garden by the apple tree.

And the third thing I did was to sign up for the Crondall Village Fete on  Sunday 19th June and the Odiham Fete in Saturday 9th July. We hope to see you then!

We are feeling very festive here at Flossie and Bumble with Personalised Stockings  commissions galore. Using vintage tweed and velvet, each one is unique. Email info@flossieandbumble.co.uk to order, each costs £35.
