After watching Sarah Raven's fantastic series, 'Bee's, Butterflies & Blooms', I decided to start working on a self-commissioned 'save the bee' campaign to try and highlight the plight of our bees and to hopefully encourage others to do some small easy things in the garden that will help get Britain buzzing.

Hello and welcome to the first ever ten and sixpence blog! This is where you'll find news and updates from behind the scenes and insights into what we're working on in the studio. There will also be sneak previews of new products about to land in the shop and a nosy into what's currently inspiring us!

In the studio, you'll find Claire (that's me!) and my trusty sidekick, Mr.Velvets, who keeps an eye on the day to day running of the studio. We're very excited about the launch of our new shop and hope you enjoy the blog too. If you'd like to get in touch, you can find us here, and on facebook and twitter. We'd love to hear from you!
