The Ramones cloakroom finally has central heating. Of course, this may mean that we will linger a little longer than before, so it was time to tear down the scruffy Venetian blind and pop up a new curtain. It had to be a Ramones curtain of course… made by me with some white polka dot cotton and some randomly placed red vinyl. Hey Ho Lets Go!
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 ❤️
We just love making bespoke, arty-farty T-shirts here at Trashcan Emporium. Lee had always wanted to design T-shirts and really enjoyed creating our Icon range – we have some available at the studio for immediate purchase or they can be ordered from us via social media message or email.
We can also make one-off T-shirts by individual request …
We also have our unique studio T-shirts …
And we can even ensure the family are wearing matching holiday T-shirts just like this cheesy lot (who I love to bits) …
We can turn the design in your head into a unique, personal, personalised T-shirt …
Orders being taken for Christmas NOW!!!
So…we have a little shop on Amazon (Handmade at Amazon section – which sadly doesn’t allow us to sell our quirky clothes and Tshirts yet) where we showcase some of our arty farty stuff. In the shop are some of our hand-painted and hand-appliquéd handbags and briefcases, and we also sell prints of Lee’s awesome artwork. Every print is strictly limited edition and with Elvis, Bowie and other icons we have lots on offer. However our top selling item in our shop is this awesome Doc Marten’s print which has been in high demand. Just recently one was bought as a wedding present for a couple of old skinheads. What an awesome wedding present huh?
I love that Lee’s artwork is displayed in homes all around the country. Lee thonks that like all good artists his art will probably be worth more when he is dead … I much prefer the thought of people enjoying his art whilst he is definitely alive and kicking (in his Doc Martens of course).
Oh and if you would like to order amy of Lee’s prints just drop us a message direct … it will save Amazon robbing us of 25% 😄
Next two weekends ‘Trashcan Emporium’ is going to be busy! Picton Castle Victorian Christmas Market on 19th and 20th, and Manorbier Castle Christmas Fayre on 26th and 27th.
Unfortunately Picton Castle only had outdoor space available. We just got our gazebo out and it looks incredibly flimsy …. please please please let the weather be kind to us!
I have made a lovely selection of cards for our stalls and I really don’t want these ace cards getting drenched in our lovely Welsh weather!
So Lee is a massive Ramones fan. Our first dance at our wedding was ‘Baby I Love You!’ and on our honeymoon we took a trip to Queen’s Museum, Flushing Meadow where a Ramones Exhibition was on. The exhibition promo was a fabulous poster and on our return to Wales Lee decided to frame it. We trawled our local car boot and found a gorgeous frame for the poster which Lee sprayed red. I grouted the tiles red and created/cut the cool decals for the toilet seat. The cute skulls on motorbikes snow globe was a present from my bestie.
We love our perfect punky Ramones toilet. What do you think?
