Welcome lovelies, and I have a non beauty related post for you. In 2018 I’m going to be shaking Elegant Ageless Beauty about a bit, I’m hoping to be featuring a bit of Lifestyle, maybe a bit of Fashion too on the blog. Never fear it will still be predominately a Beauty Blog, but with a few added extras. I’ll explain to you in the New Year why I’ve decided to do this, in the meantime allow me to kick things off right now by introducing you to a Blob Bird!
The Blob Birds and other critters are the brainchild(ren) of artist Helen Russell Creations. This is what Helen says “Welcome to my world, where characters like the Blob Birds, Puffins and Little Bean Farm critters are waiting to meet you. Too many welly-wearing hours, spent reading books with beautiful illustrations, have created a playful, happy land that welcomes visitors old and new. Come and join me and my creatures round the campfire as we share stories and happy memories through homeware, surface pattern and sculpture. Imagination is the only luggage you need”
I discovered Helen’s gorgeous creations simply by “liking” and commenting how gorgeous a photo of one of the Robin Blob Bird mugs was on Twitter. The next thing I know I was contacted by the PR company asking me if I would like one of the Helen Russell Creations mugs, of course I said “Yes please” and Helen Russell herself very kindly sent me one of her beautiful mugs. I have the “Hello, fancy a brew” mug which holds half a pint of hot steaming coffee! ( or whatever your favourite beverage is of course) It’s made of bone china with screen printed ceramic decal of my lovely little robin blob bird. I love him! He’s dishwasher friendly too. I think he would make the perfect gift for anyone, bird lovers, those bird lovers who have a penchant for the Robin, anyone who loves the quirky and different. I’ve really taken to my little Blob Bird friend and he’s now going to be my favourite Christmas mug. Imagine him filled with hot chocolate and marshmallows, oh yes please!
The Helen Russell Creations website is beautiful. It’s full of amazing things for the home. Textiles, Tableware, Greetings cards. There’s stationary and illustrations and sculpture, and all so reasonably priced too. Everything would make ideal gifts for any occasion, or simply treat yourself. You can find Helen Russell Creations HERE.
Thank you for stopping by today.
