MEETING dots and spots
This morning, I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Becky from dots and spots. I had ordered a couple of personalised cards and as I only live 3 miles away, I arranged to collect them from her house. Becky kindly invited me around for coffee (apple juice in my case as I don't drink tea or coffee).
The moment I walked in, I knew that I would like or should I say... LOVE the house. Lovely shades of blues, off whites and red and with some dots and spots here & there of course. There is also a mix of Greengate, Cath Kidston & several pieces of vintage furniture. It is beautifully furnished and decorated!
We sat at the table for a chat and although Becky & I had never met before, the conversation flowed easily. Becky showed me some photos of how the house used to look inside before they redecorated it. The transformation is amazing, a real labour of love. You wouldn't believe the difference!
Becky showed me around her studio where I saw some of her work. The design of her cards are really lovely, bright and colourful.
I was privileged to see some of her brand new cards not yet released!
I had a lovely time and ended up being there for 2 hours, time flew by!
Needless to say that I did not come back empty handed.
