Happy Birthday Charlotte!

It would have been Charlotte Brontë's 206th birthday today so I thought I'd revisit some products that I designed for the Bronte Parsonage museum shop when we were celebrating her 200th!

These products are still going strong and can be purchased in the museum shop in person, or on their website.

There is a tote bag,

some notebooks, large and small.

 a tea towel,

 a set of coasters,

a set of placemats,

 and an apron.

We had a lot of fun doing this photoshoot at our friend Sarah of Simply by Arrangement fame. This is her sweet dog Molly who really wanted to get her teeth into that baguette!


The hellebores were in flower at the time - one of the flowers featured in the design so it was nice to use them in the photos. The design is based on the flowers that grow in the Parsonage garden around the time of Charlotte's birthday. All the spring bloomers - fritillaries, alliums, tulips, forget-me-nots and ferns.

Out of this project, also came my Charlotte's Garden wallpaper. You can only buy this on my website though.

Thanks Sarah Mason for the photos, Suze for your modelling, Sarah Statham for your house and hellebores and the Bronte Parsonage for the commission.

And Happy Birthday Charlotte! x
