Made in Yorkshire

Pheasant is a fantastic website, dedicated to things made in Yorkshire.

Hmm, this gives me an idea - more posts coming soon, featuring handmade good things from different counties across this fair land....

Check out the handmade teapots which look like your favourite branded foods - Marmite, Colman's Mustard and Tate & Lyle syrup - made in Leyburn, North Yorks.

The weather can't make up it's mind - for those wintry moments, these lambswool blankets made in Morley, West Yorks look just the ticket:

Susannah's Jumbo clutch

I took a peek at Susannah Hunter's blog to see that these lovely clutches are in now in stock at her Rugby Street store.

Jo Gordon knitwear

Jo Gordon's Scottish handmade knitted hats, gloves, scarves and shawls are delicious (and cosy warm), featuring bright colours, stripes and pompoms.  I particularly like the pocket scarves, such as this Fisherman rib scarf. Would make a good Valentine's Day pressie... And what luck, the sale is now on!
