focus on: Emily Hogarth




I love getting mail. This particular parcel made me smile endlessly, as inside the little package from Scotland was a fabulous tea towel & 2 Highland Cow postcards I won from the lovely & talented Emily Hogarth via the equally charming Conversation Pieces blog. The tea towel is a delightful robins egg blue, which is a main colour used in my decor. Bliss!
Emily Hogarth is a textile designer & illustrator living in Edinburgh, Scotland. She mainly works with paper cuts (and not the ouchie kind!). Here's a sampling of some of her stunning work:

I know the tea towel is meant to be used, but it's so pretty that I either want to frame it or use it as a table runner. I cannot imagine doing something so mundane as drying dishes with such a beautiful piece of fabric. The postcards will be utilized properly, though!
Thank you Zoë & Emily! You've made this Canadian girl feel like she's a little bit closer to Scotland (where some of my ancestors are from!).
