I'm a huge fan of "Molly-Meg" and now my little maudie is big enough, she too can enjoy these wonderful vintage chairs - and better still now stay on them.
Specialising in designs from the 1950s to the present, Molly-Meg aims to show the best of contemporary design along with vintage classics, creating a perfect combination which kids will love and that will evoke nostalgia among parents.
Later this month we look forward to working alongside Molly and some of her 'miniature classics' so will bring you more news then..... in the meantime be sure to check out Molly-Meg and I bet childhood memories will come flooding back

Big thank you for the write ups we've had so far, very much appreciated and great to here the positive feedback. We took on lots of new accounts and for those regulars who stopped by it was as always great to see you. I know a few who couldn't make it or couldn't get on the stand so for those here are a few additional images of the products. New card range I'll report on and add images later.

Beautiful papers whilst in search of a new home

Whilst continuing the travels around the South-West country last week in search of a potential new home I did as always get side tracked but can you blame me.... I came across Jurianne Matter and her wonderful paper-works, she is now one of my favorite paper designers. I couldn't help but buy her creations and what better the boats and lanterns simple sum up summer, boats by day and soft light by night - lovely lovely.

we love print

as a textile print designer I get so excited seeing new prints and of course classic vintage too, mini moderns vintage prints are fab, made me think of my nanna and a real comfy tiny sofa she had.

I've just completed another range of scandi-esque prints so clean and fresh and a great contrast to our cloud cuckoo card style. Orla Kiely has gorgeous prints always and just love the above from her spring 09 collection

Cloud Cuckoo Designs is still Cloud Cuckoo Designs!!

Hello all, I’m posting today to clear up any confusion. There has been some misinformation put about that Cloud Cuckoo Designs have been renamed as Ella and Otto. I can confirm this is not the case. Yes, there is a brand Ella and Otto but this is a company set up this year using designs registered and developed under Cloud Cuckoo Designs. These designs were produced during a trial project, involving Cloud Cuckoo Designs and Tania Urban (who earlier this year set up Ella & Otto). Disappointed by the results, which we felt were too compromised, we decided at the end of 2008 that we would stop selling this range under the Cloud Cuckoo Designs name, once all stock had been sold.
We are producing a new textile range in our signature style that will be available in the near future and will include similar and additional products as before.

If you come along call by and say hello on stand J55 be greta to see you, if you can't make it hope you like the updated website and catalogue to download.
Wishes, claire

cloud cuckOO snOw creations

I'm back, Maude just had a cat nap so took the opportunity to build 2 cloud cuckoo snow peeps, i think they fit in well with our Minnies Sewing Box characters and our new range "tweet twoo tales"
Hope to build more tomorrow, "let it snow let it snow let it snow"


An old fashioned winter wonderland. It has been many years since I last woke up to such a deep white covering. All the happy memories of sledging with my sister and my dad have been with me all morning, Maude is not of the age to appreciate it but nevertheless we had a fun outing this morning and here are some of the jolly snowmen we met along the way. I couldn't't resist a group photo of the chilly beings but some of my favourites too, check out 'Teeny Tiny' "snow Bunny' and only one I came across with a good old carrot nose. Maude and I will be making our snow family I hope later today or tomorrow.

Top Drawer Spring

Tuesday afternoon took me to Top drawer as a visitor rather than exhibitor, strange being the other side of the fence but good too. To keep to timings we were pleased to still launch a new card range just before the show and this has been meet with great enthusiasm.
As our new range features humble home owls 'Tweet & Twoo' I was taken by some other lovely owls on show by Olive and Moss, Petra Boase and new company Owaboo

In addition to the owls other lovely finds were; simplistic clean designs for babies from Fabric of the Universe, a new company based in Edinburgh
Thornback and Peel had gorgeous sketch hand printed textiles used across a range of products including baby tops, might NEED one for my little Maudie!!

Finally an old classic and inspiration to many SCP have the amazing work of Alexander Girard as plywood prints and here is my favourite Madonna
'Blossom & Bob' from ISAK is sure to follow in the success as this too is fab and as always they too had a great stand
