Seaford Sunset Shots

Well although it was fun, don't let these photos fool you into thinking we were in tropical climes. We needed serious defrosting with the help of hot toddies after this shoot but so happy with the results.

Artwave O'clock

Artwave took place in August and earl September here in Sussex and Dolly fixtures were lucky enough to take part at two venues.

Both weekends were a huge success and we can't wait for next year. #planters #madeinsussex #cushion #upcycle #legs #mannequin #Denim #quirky #furniture #Visualdisplay #leather #Cushion #upcycled #fullma

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! So tell me, who doesn’t need a planter named Harry for their bouquet today? Such a pleasure to work with leather! This gorgeous, rich, brown upcycled leather was Nandos seating cushions in it's former life! These two boys are part of The Posse and available for sale or for hire. Last Summer they held cake, bubbly and flowers in a Wedding Marquee. Recently they attended a Big Birthday Bash here in Sussex, creating a few giggles and lots of laughs! #quirk
