Frye Boots

Clare Phillips Artists frye frye boots heritage history Norman Reedus Stylish

Hi Everyone, Today is a day for history, something about this time of year makes me all nostalgic and I do love a good mini history lesson. I also like to know that the things I buy have some heritage, I don’t know why but it makes me happy. I wanted to focus on Frye today. They have an enormous amount of history tucked into their perfect leather boots. I looked at Frye’s website and they had this to tell us… “On March 10th, 1863, John A. Frye opened the doors of a small shop on Elm Street in Marlborough,...

Berlin

  Guten Tag lovely people!   A little catch up on what I was up to in the land of cheap beer, sausages and great museums. I’m back and just about recovered from my trip to Berlin, what a stunning place! It’s not the prettiest city in the world but it’s got some beautiful bits, the river Spree was very atmospheric to walk along in the evenings and Museum Island is a Mecca for history and art nerds like me. We visited the zoo and aquarium, both worth a look if you have time. I am particularly partial to staring...

Bedpop Mr X Stitch Pop Up Gallery

Clare Phillips art Artists Bed Pop Bedford boutique planet community cross designer embroidery Erica

Hello, first blog post from the newbie...   So I decided to blog about the recent show featured at the Pop Up Gallery on the high street, a cross stitch and embroidery extravaganza showcasing some unique pieces in a lovely bright airy space.    Now, I make no claim to know anything about embroidery or cross stitch. My only encounter with either involves some very pretty handmade christmas cards one year and a few misguided attempts of my own during an art course.  Well that was all blown straight out of the water upon entering the gallery last week, the...
