Welcome to issue 3 of 91 Magazine! A lot has happened since we last met. I travelled to South East Asia for the first time, visiting Vietnam, Cambodia & Thailand - all of which I’d highly recommend if you haven’t been. On our last week on the Thai island of Koh Tao, my boyfriend proposed! A year from now we hope to tie the knot in the South of France, and we are busy making plans already, so I found our DIY weddings article on Page 38 very helpful! I have also made the difficult decision to close my online boutique, Patchwork Harmony. You can find out more about this on my blog - but one of the main reasons is that I want to focus my attention on 91 Magazine. I have loved putting this issue together - from five ways to use wildf lowers, to the home of a Parisian artist, to a look at the world of vintage Blythe dolls - there is a real mix of features I hope you’ll enjoy! Thanks again to our wonderful contributors, do check out what they do via the contributors pages, they are a talented bunch! I also hope you will take a peek at some of our fantastic advertisers - all carefully selected retailers who I personally think you will love to shop with. Don’t forget to check out our website too, where we have recently added some free downloadable wallpapers for your computer, phone or iPad! As always, I love to hear your thoughts, so get in touch via email - or through Twitter. Lots of Love,

The pursuit of Craftiness A mother and daughter team combine Scandi style and Woodland chic to create a perfect range of stationery and craft products

Words by Rin Simpson

seller spotlight


First and foremost, Caitlin Lucas and her mother, Kristen Wilson, are collectors. From beads and textiles to beautiful paper, their eclectic finds have formed the basis of two collaborative stores – Oddlyeven Supply Co. and the more recent addition, Inkkit. Inkkit supplies papers, stationery and textiles – anything you can put ink on, in fact – and is inspired by world design, from African tribal art to the Native American and Spanish inf luences of Caitlin and Kristen’s home town of Albuquerque, New Mexico. There’s a definite Scandinavian feel in the way the products are styled too and Caitlin admits that the playful woodland feel – like her own favourite stock item, the twig pencil set – comes straight from her inner child. But it is the duo’s combined tastes that give Inkkit it’s unique and balanced edge. While Caitlin loves simplicity and a neutral palette with splashes of colour here and there, Kirsten is drawn to anything bright and vibrant.




Although the company is only a year old, Caitlin and Kirsten are planning for the future, with new products and ‘products in waiting’ to be added to the mix shortly. There will be more handmade papers, more craft kits… more, in fact, of whatever takes their fancy. Good design, says Caitlin, is something that comes from inside each of us, whether we use it to create the paint scheme of an aeroplane or the layout of a breakfast table. It is whatever makes us comfortable and happy inside. View more of Inkkit’s products at:

91 When eating flowers, remember that not all specimens are edible. Pesticides put garden centre specimens firmly off limits. Forage only from wild settings free from chemicals & human interference, or grow your own with organic soils and lots of care and love.



Summer Flower Salad with Dandelion Dressing • Combine rocket leaves with lambs lettuce for a delicate salad and top with borage, nasturtiums and carnations for a peppery taste with a soft, cucumbery scent. • For the dressing, combine extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar with agave nectar and horseradish mustard to taste. Season with salt and pepper, and add small dandelion buds (as they get larger, the flavour becomes more bitter) before tossing through the salad.


Pansy Collins with wildf lower ice cubes • To make ice cubes, opt for small blossoms or pick off petals to freeze in an ice cube tray. Herb flowers such as those from basil, chives, dill and sage make particularly pretty cubes, though the bright leaves of Nasturtiums would look great in a fiery cocktail for a Spanishinspired spread complete with homemade tapas. Just ensure you’re using edible blooms as they will melt into the drink. • To make this delicate floral cocktail, shake together 2oz gin, 1oz fresh lemon juice, and 0.8oz St Germain Elderflower liqueur. Pour over ice, top with soda water and add a couple of whole pansies to garnish. Don’t forget to let your guests know they can eat the flowers too!


St Germain Elderflower Liqueur is distilled from hand-picked elderflowers. Due to their fleeting 4-6 week blossoming period, only a limited quantity are harvested each season and every bottle of St Germain liqueur bears its production number and date stamp on the unique, art-deco inspired bottle.




Decorate... .


• Flowers needn’t be expensive. As well as growing them yourself (try grow bags and planters for a balcony garden), you can find lots of table-worthy varieties in the wild, including Ox-Eye daises, dandelions, cow parsley and poppies. Greenery is always a good way to bulk out small bouquets, and fresh spring and summer greens sit brilliantly with white. • You don’t need to be skilled at flower arranging to put together a pretty table setting:. Try small glass vases grouped together for a pretty centre piece – we used jugs and tea cups, or float daisy heads in a crystal bowl. Even a teapot makes a nice home for a few freshly cut blooms and adding levels draws the eye in.


A Garden Party table setting

• Think of a colour theme. It’s generally best to stick to two or three base colours that you can carry through your set-up, though use as many as you like for a thrown together look. We used white and green with hints of purple, for a garden lunch setting.




Wire-free flf lower crowns • Gather your chosen flowers – ones with a long, thick stem such as roses are ideal and wildflowers such as poppies and Ox-Eye daises look beautiful, but you can use any blooms to fit your colour theme. • Using a needle, poke a hole through the stem of your first flower and thread the next one through. Use thread to secure them at the joint and repeat. • You can use thread to attach smaller flowers for a fuller garland – beading wire or floral wire will both work. • You can secure the garland into a pretty up-do with a few bobby pins, or add ribbon to the ends and tie together for a crown design. Being able to ditch the usual wire hoop means that the crown will sit more naturally on


the head and will feel comfortable all day long.



Seed packet favours Personalised seed packets make a lovely and thoughtful party favour. Chances are, your guests will be impressed that you thought outside the box and introduced them flowers on their plate and herbs in their glass. If they’ve done it all before? Well, then they’ll be more than happy to take home more seeds to plant and eat. You could:

Stamp small brown envelopes with little letters

Print out vintage seed packet images from the internet and make your own packets

Use washi tape to secure the flower that corresponds to the seeds inside for a little favour to be planted right away

few thoughtful touches and some practical items can make your house guests feel more welcome and comfortable. It will also make their stay that extra bit special. We don’t all have the luxury of a dedicated guest bedroom but even if the room your visitors sleep in doubles up as something else there are a few simple inexpensive things that you can do to make the most of the space and make your guests feel welcome. You can use a theme to tie everything together or continue the style of the rest of your home within the guest bedroom.

The tale of the humble Typewriter Words by Katie Tregidden

Search on Etsy for “typewriter” and it returns over 11,000 items. From vintage typewriters, to necklaces and cuff links made from single letter keys and everything from screen prints to cushions and stationery printed with iconic typewriter images.

What is it about old typewriters that appeal to us so much in this digital age? Most of us own laptops, iPhones, Blackberrys or iPads, all of which far out perform the humble typewriter, so what’s the attraction?

Do we miss being able to see how things work; the sheer mechanics of an inked key imprinting clean white paper with a single letter? If that’s the case, it’s worth knowing that early typists (confusingly known as typewriters themselves) couldn’t see what they were typing, because you had to raise up the carriage to look; the words were typed on the bottom of the carriage.

In 1856, The Cooper, a circular index typewriter, which used a revolving disk, was built and in 1861, Father Francisco João de Azevedo’s made a typewriter from basic tools and materials such as wood and knives. During this time, Peter Mitterhofer made many models and finally a Is it the familiarity of the shape and de- prototype in 1867, and in the same year, sign of vintage typewriters that appeals?

Thompson used his IBM Selectric until the day he died – quite literally - his body was found sitting at it; the word “counselor” typed onto the page. Mark Twain was the first author to submit a typewritten manuscript – Tom Sawyer, produced on a Sholes & Glidden. Ernest Hemingway’s Royal Quiet de Luxe sold at auction for $2,750. George Orwell and Agatha Christie were both fans of the Remington Home Portable. But Self and O’Rourke could opt for a MacBook, so why don’t they? For O’Rourke, it’s a case of avoiding the distractions that inevitably come with a computer’s easy access to the Internet. For Self, it’s a desire to construct prose If you want to buy a vintage typewriter, in his head before he writes, rather than is a fantastic resource with a wide range of makes working it out on the screen. and models.

o you’ve just got engaged. How exciting! But there’s so much to do, how will you ever plan a wedding on top of work commitments? And how much will it cost? Don’t worry, if you’re organised, creative and budget savvy you can save thousands and have the wedding of your dreams. Consider holding a marquee reception in a friend or family’s garden. Barn venues on farms can also be cost effective and are a great choice for a blank canvas in a rustic setting. Google ‘wedding barn’ and you’ll come up with the most commercial venues that have f lashy websites and big marketing budgets. Try contacting local farms for advice. If you do your research thoroughly, you should be able to find this type of venue for around £2k.

Set up a cake table, fête style with whole cakes, trif le and fresh berries. It will be much more fun than an elaborate wedding cake allowing your guests to tuck in! If your mum or auntie is itching for a task, ask her to make a big batch of homemade jam and distribute it as wedding favours. You can buy jars online, handwrite the labels and tie circles of fabric around the lids.

And what wedding is complete without some bunting to decorate your venue? Invest in a pair of pinking scissors, cut big f lags of fabric and attach them to long lengths of ribbon.

From Paris, with Style

Lise Meunier



Words and photography by Leigh Metcalf


f you’ve ever dreamed of living the life of an artist in Paris, then step inside the apartment of ceramicist and textile designer Lise Meunier, and get a little taste of this envious lifestyle. Lise’s passion for crafts and found objects is evident in every corner of her spacious, light-filled apartment, which she shares with her partner and two children. Located in Paris’s 19th arrondissement, between Jourdain and Menilmontant. Lise says “it’s like a village, which has many gardens.” She says she misses the countryside but enjoys her “balcony full of f lowers where she loves to settle down to work.” And who wouldn’t want to get creative while drinking in a view of this beautiful city?


Back inside, Lise shows us her craft corner, where she works on textile projects and comes up with her ceramic designs. The workspace is filled with eye-catching inspiration that is both whimsical and cheerful and at times a little dark and quirky. Craft supplies and objects d’art such as Japanese washi tape, buttons, ceramic and plastic figurines, paper umbrellas, and Marrakech dolls dot every patch of her craft nook. Her interest in collecting doesn’t stop there. Her entire apartment is a treasure trove of found objects, pieces carefully selected at f lea markets and from quirky Paris shops, which are all thoughtfully styled throughout the space. She especially enjoys scouring the surrounding countryside for unique pieces, and also frequents many charity shops. Looking around her living space, its no surprise Lise is also a photo stylist when she’s not working on her own creations. Her styling work includes books such as Shabby Chic: 40 Projects to Customize and Decorate Interiors. Lise’s creative passion began as a young girl in her childhood bedroom, “making all sorts of things with found objects.” She studied Art History and worked as an illustrators’ agent after graduating and enjoyed taking pottery classes. But deep down, she knew she wanted to devote more of her time to her own creations. So she quit her job to pursue her creative passions full-time. She currently divides her time between her studio where she can fire her ceramic work and designing and creating



from her home. Her ceramics designs, all of which are enamelled earthenware, primarily have a natural aesthetic. With a neutral colour palette, most pieces being an earthy, stone-like white, she often adds interest with carefully crafted f loral designs. Some pieces are functional, serving as vases or small dishes, others are more decorative and purely ornamental. She often uses vintage glass half domes, crocheted doilies or table linens to display her work which compliment it well. Lise also explains she

is inspired and inf luenced by “plants and insects, folk art, outsider art, religious art and curio cabinets.” For her textile pieces, she uses vintage and antique fabrics, often mixing them to make patchwork cushion covers or to make various pieces such as the blue pedestal pin cushion which she uses at her desk as she sews. When she’s not crafting, Lise also spends as much time as she can getting out and enjoying Paris. I asked her to share some of her hidden gems, and she has many!

Words by Joanna Simmons Photographs by Debi Treloar


A fresh white backdrop punctuated with colour and pattern on cushions is a classic homespun look that’s super easy to achieve.


ust like fashion, interiors styles go in cycles. We’ve had minimalism; we’ve done neutrals; we’re slightly over our love affair with grey. So it’s time for something completely different! We’re ditching serious, understated schemes, in favour of colour, pattern and bags of personality. We want our homes to ref lect our lives,


travels, friendships and families. We value second-hand and vintage pieces as much as - or even more than - designer or high-street buys. We might even f lex our creative muscles now and then; reaching for a paintbrush or a needle and thread, to transform a worn or simple piece into something personal.


Spotting this trend for unpretentious, colourful, crafty interiors, Selina Lake put together Homespun Style. Together with photographer Debi Treloar, Selina sourced and shot homes as far afield as Norway, Sweden, France and Denmark, as well as in the UK. Each one shares a love of colour - whether splashed abundantly across walls or used to punctuate an all-white scheme. Upcycled and repaired pieces that are bursting with character, sometimes set alongside design classics, are another feature of the homespun home. A passion for pattern is dazzlingly apparent too, with striking rugs making plain boards sing, and metres of vintage fabrics reborn as cushion covers, quilts or simply displayed in colourful stacks.

Top Right; Good lighting and a chunky piece of storage keep this creative corner organised and practical. Botton Right; Vintage fabrics, beautifully displayed according to their colour, wait to be transformed into a quilt or cushion cover.


As the name suggests, the homespun look leans heavily on homemade ingredients. If you want to inject relaxed personality into your interiors, there is no better way than with a piece you have decorated, adapted or even made. But while crafting used to be all about dying arts and complicated techniques, modern craft is not difficult. Skill with a crochet needle or sewing machine is handy, but not

necessary! Modern craft is as much about modifying and remodelling existing pieces, using simple tweaks and easy ideas to brighten and personalise. Anyone can stitch buttons onto a cushion cover to give it a fresh look. Anyone can give an old wooden chair a bright coat of paint. Experimentation is key simply get stuck in! You might be surprised how easy it is to create something gorgeous and unique.

This modern, sleek kitchen is given the homespun treatment via a splashback made of vintage wallpaper swatches.



Customising a simple chest of drawers with paint and paper gives it a gloriously quirky new look.

Above left; Have fun with display. Here, images, trinkets, plates and photos are hung, taped and even suspended on a wire off the wall. Above right; Traditional dining chairs are used on this terrace, their austere shape softened by cushions and oilcloth seats in bright colours.

Perhaps the chief draw of homespun style is its relaxed nature. It chucks out the interiors rule book and invites you to play around with pattern, texture and colour; mix old and new; and hang everything from postcards to pom-poms on your walls. In addition, the ingredients of a homespun home need not break the bank. This is not a label-conscious look, so forget scouring showrooms and head to your local f lea market or your granny’s attic

instead, for quirky pieces and vibrant fabrics. Keep an eye out for lovingly created works by small makers too. These one-of-a-kind gems that have been crafted with real talent and passion will add interest to any room. Most importantly - enjoy yourself! With an open mind, a dash of imagination and a sense of fun, you can take any home from humdrum to homespun in a f lash.

A Shipshape Day


onny Colville-Hyde spends a day at North West London’s lastest craft venue - Shipeshape Studio.....

Photography by James Royall




ucked away in Northwood, out in Zone 6 of the underground, lies a little gem on the outskirts of London. Shipshape Studio is hidden away just off the High Street and its the sort of place that instantly feels special.

The studio runs classes and workshops on a range of crafts, with the focus being on producing something to take away at the end of the day. These workshops are for a variety of skill levels and are tailored to enable participants with different abilities to take part. The workshop I attended was a f lag making class lead by one of the studio’s owners, Emily Burt. The class is part of a new programme of workshops

under development by Emily and her partner Adam Tiratsoo. Since the studio opened last November, the duo have been testing out ideas to see what works best for their customers and have found this sort of fun and friendly workshop is a real winner. The studio itself is decorated with other workshop projects, like the gorgeous hanging paper globes that they teach bridal parties to make ahead of their special day. Emily and Adam have also decorated the space with vintage ephemera, retro collectables and handmade items. They also have a small but interesting selection of books about running crafty businesses, making things and other related activities.


The f lag making class lasted three hours and was perfect for a group of participants with mixed skill sets. There were four of us that took part in the class with very different crafty skills and interests, but that was not a problem as Emily was on hand to guide us through the process of creating our own felt f lag.

As you can probably tell, I fell a little bit in love with Shipshape Studio! I found the afternoon very liberating, as I usually craft on my own and am very critical of my work. I tend to spend a long time planning projects and am often disappointed if my handiwork doesn’t match my aspirations. Spending three hours getting to ‘play’ was wonderful! For the first time in ages, I actually relaxed, and didn’t worry about the final result. It might have been the homemade cakes, the tea and the retro soundtrack in the studio, but whatever it was, I really enjoyed the process


of making something in the company of other people. We made the f lags from brightly coloured felt and chose our own designs. We were given a selection of books to help give us inspiration drafting our designs and we sketched out our ideas before we got started with the felt. The f lags we were making were intended to be wall hangings, so we could really go to town with their designs. All the materials were provided, including sticky-backed felt which was brilliant to work with and made it possible to actually finish the whole project in a (relatively) short time. Emily gave us hints and tips throughout the session, keeping the conversation f lowing and making the class a very friendly place indeed. Adam kept the tea and cake f lowing too! As you can probably tell, I fell a little bit in love with Shipshape, and If I lived in London it would certainly be a haunt of mine. Being based in Bristol makes it a little far for me to trek to on a regular basis, but for some events it would certainly be worth it. Part of the programme

of new initiatives Emily and Adam are working on include the Design and Illustration Forum, which sounds like it will be a fantastic way to network and discuss the business of working in this field, including those outside London making the trip. If you do get a chance to visit


Shipshape, you should. Its got a lot of charm and heart. The passion for making things is also so clearly visible in Emily and Adam, it won’t be long before they have outgrown the little studio and will need somewhere bigger to cater for the demand – so get in there quick! / 01923 828987 To see more photos from our shoot at Shipshape Studio click here.


Digging up Dolly Our deputy editor, Charlotte Clarke, delves into the world of Blythe dolls and discovers there is more to them than just those big eyes....

igging her vegetable patch one sunny day, a woman comes across a doll. While most people may have dismissed this as being a worthless plastic toy, buried by a child or dog, this woman knew better. An avid Blythe doll collector, she took a closer look and found she had indeed hit the jackpot ~ a Kenner Blythe in her very own garden! Vintage Kenner Blythe is the pinnacle of the Blythe doll world; a community dominated by crafty, creative types who spend their free time sourcing the dolls, crafting outfits and photographing them.

released the cult photography book This is Blythe in 2000. Dolly ‘meet-ups’ and Blythe conventions are now regular features of this quirky community, consisting of collectors selling their handmade Blythe wares, hosting workshops and sharing sewing and knitting tips. Some go as far as customising their dolls, changing hair styles, makeup, eye colours, etc.

“I always describe Blythe’s as having other worldly charm” says Linda Holland, an art director and Blythe enthusiast who cites the story of the vegetable patch lady as one of her favourites, along with another about a girl who came across an Designed by Allison Katzman in 1972 and original in a charity shop for $2.

The idea for the shop came to Leo after his second trip to Japan in August 2007 and he has been working on it ever since, as well as hosting exhibitions which he writes about on his blog. He and Linda are now good friends, regularly updating each other on the next best thing in the Blythe community. For those who are keen to get involved but lack the funds for a Kenner Blythe, other more affordable versions are available. Japan in particular has adopted the style and created a distinct modern spin that has wide appeal. These designs are what keeps the hobby thriving, the most notable being by a company called Takara, who releases 6 new ‘Neo Blythe’ dolls per year for £150 plus. In fact, such is Blythe’s success; there is now an annual Blythe charity fashion show in Tokyo, where leading designers from around the world create tiny versions of their outfits for Blythe dolls to wear as they are carried down the runway by models wearing white gloves. Design houses, including John Galliano, Prada, Gucci, Vivienne Westwood, Issey Miyake, Versace and Sonia Rykiel also now regard Blythe as a veritable muse.

Interview by Nicola Sanders


What did you do before printed Harris Tweed inspirational products and I was etc.)? Papa Stour? After completing a Master of Design at Glasgow School of Art, I worked for Sanderson in London where I was involved in developing a more modern incarnation of the brand. I then went on to become a freelance stylist and art director, working with the likes of Sunday Times Style, Homes & Gardens and Elle Decoration and with companies such as The White Company, Dulux and Laura Ashley.

looking for outlets to sell them; at the same time, I kept coming across really interesting work. I thought it would be a great idea to bring together a collection of contemporary craft and design under one roof, with everything made in Scotland. I looked at the competition in this area to see if any websites were doing the same thing and noticed that there was a gap in the market. I contacted artists whose work I liked – and seven years on, the collection we have is still carefully curated in this way.



I had lots of contacts from working in London which definitely helped when it came to promoting the website, but I also got great advice from friends, family and former colleagues – their combined advice was invaluable.

If something catches our eye, we are onto it – and fortunately we are now contacted regularly by artists, designers and makers who are keen to be on the website. We recently brought on board Kevin, a new graduate from Glasgow School of Art working in ceramics, who makes amazing teapots, caddies and cups with beautiful little birds attached; and Helena, a silversmith from Skye who makes wonderfully intricate pieces of jewellery, both of whom I’m really excited about.

You recently went into collaboration with your sister, Sally – how has this changed or improved things for you? I was delighted when Sally decided to join Papa Stour. As well as being an astute business girl, she has brought lots of fresh suggestions to the business – we bounce ideas off one another, and we are focused on what we need to achieve in our meetings, which definitely makes them more productive. We have concentrated more on business strategies and timescales, which I really


think has been important, otherwise things can drift along without focus. We are a good combination because our backgrounds are different: we naturally bring different dynamics. Apart from that, it’s fun to have a partner to work with, so it’s been a great success!
