Baby I Love You

Valentine is an excuse for us to be arty farty! My gift from Lee was this beautiful “Baby I Love You” drawing. The message is pretty special as it is a reference to the song by The Ramones and the tune for our first dance at our wedding. My card to Lee is a heart made out of one of my early swatches made on the machine knitting. Oh and I really do love him more than knitting!!!

Happy Valentines Day ❤️

Sweary Bobble Hat …

Very happy to have spent this weekend learning more about my knitting machine. Spent yesterday at a brilliant one day workshop learning all sorts of new things. Spent today fine-tuning my sweary bobble hat skills! Soooooooo blinkin’ happy how this one turned out … what do you think?

Happy New Skull (part deuce)

I popped into the studio yesterday afternoon and found Lee having a quiet few moments between his customers. The huge huge skull painting he started a couple weeks ago seems to be coming along beautifully …

Woolly Woolly…

This week has been written off with the dreaded Aussie Flu … with nothing to do apart from cough I took to the needles … by machine and hand. I have knitted a pink Flamingo Scarf for myself which just needs some eyes, am half way through a nautical jumper using a 1930’s knitting pattern that I found free on the internet and also have a stripy scarf for Lee hanging off the machine. Sometimes creativity is just messy yeah?

Stay True and Hold Fast …

Skulls inspire lots of our creative work and I recently finished this cute, sparkly, tattoo inspired, skull evening bag. As with all our bags it is totally, wonderfully, completely unique … another Trashcan Emporium one-off!

The bag measures 7 inches x 7.5 inches and so is just perfect size for phone, keys and cash on a night out (or even a night ‘out out’).

I am going to pop it on our Amazon shop later but if anyone wants to snap it up now then it’s just £10 …

Sharing Gifts … Happy Xmas All …

Thank you to all our lovely family, friends and followers who have supported Trashcan Emporium over the last year … we love creating and sharing and of course more lush creativity to come in 2018 …

Lee and I just swapped Xmas presents … we always make something lovely for each other … Lee made me this stunning wall plaque out of chicken wire and Das clay, whilst I sat cross stitching by the fire Bronte style …

Lemmy is God …

Lee has been working for a while on his portrait of Lemmy. I have so enjoyed watching the gradual transformation from a sketch on a canvas to an absolutely jaw dropping finished piece. Truly my husband is so damn talented!

We are going to be offering strictly limited edition prints of this painting, and of course all Lee’s other work, and you can order via social media or our Trashcan Emporium shop on Handmade at Amazon. Who will be the proud owner of print # 1/100?
