Mrs LapageMade Takeover

So this is my first Blog at LapageMade, I had the thought today whilst updating the website that maybe it was my turn. Its been such a busy few months here at LapageMade and the Blog has suffered but hopefully even though we are heading into another busy time we can find the time to keep up. In May we …

Laser Engraved Personalised English Walnut Wicked Hairpin Side Table

A New Addition. Is Yellow Still Your Favourite?

Shortly after the long yellow legged table, I made another walnut side table.  This time with longer (41cm) clear coated steel legs. Compliments the walnut and not contrasts against it. I have engraved a quote from Roald Dahl’s ‘The Twits’.  The next table I’m going to do (besides the one I’ve been comissioned to do by Er’Indoor for her birthday, …

A New Year….

Best laid plans and everything….. The run up to Christmas was hectic to say the least, with orders from shops and order from Louth & Stamford markets, with breaking a bone in my foot and with extra Sunday markets and fairs.  I didn’t get chance to breath some days. We had a lovely time away over Christmas with faimily, packed …

Liberty’s Open Call 2016.

LapageMade has some exciting tales from our visit yesterday to the most magnificent London department store… Liberty London. We set off from home at 6am with half a dozen of LapageMade’s wares, packed in a suitcase and with speech in hand and some figures heading for Liberty’s Open Call 2016. We joined the queue a little bit later than hoped, …

Taking 5 minutes before I start the weeks work.

December has well and truelly started and Christmas is everywhere. I would like to write a post for you every Sunday but it has been manic for the last month or six weeks.  I have been at craft fairs and Sunday Christmas Markets every Sunday for the last 5 weeks so all my time has been taken up with these. …

It’s Been A While But A Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss

Well! I don’t know where to begin. With the weather probably. A week of glorious September sun behind us and a week of October rain ahead of us, so the weather man says. Last chance to do some pegging out, then. Just over two weeks ago I broke my 5th Metatarsal (no, not playing international football or triathleting!) which changed …

On The Surface Of It…

A day of two halves today. Bright, sunny and warm this morning and overcast and cool this afternoon. Good enough to venture out for a regular Sunday Treat, after the In-Laws headed home. No fledglings today but plenty of wasps and flies, must be something to do with the lack of crops about. A flurry of harvesting towards the end …

Exciting Times, Post Number 3

A lovely Sunday in the garden is just what I need. A sunny afternoon after a nice cup of coffee and lunch at our regular in Woodhall Spa. Although a little windy, it freshens it up a little. I think there might be a second clutch of blackbird fledglings in the hedge nearby, bothering their mother by making a racket. …

A Week On & Our Second Post.

Another week has passed and the weather has settled down a little, to a sultry 22 degrees.  Not too hot nor too detrimental.   This week I’ve been mainly reading about Blogs (making and engraving Chopping Boards, Trivets and a couple of new idea’s also, in preperation to The Revesby Country Fair and my other regular Markets).  A particulaly helpful …
