My Favourite Craftspeople – Nicola B from The Catkin Boutique

| 7 Comments

Last week I was craving a little fashion inspiration for the Diamond Jubilee (with the aim of deciding what to wear for the celebrations I’m attending over the weekend of the 2nd-5th June) when I stumbled into a gorgeous Etsy shop The Catkin Boutique, where I was surrounded by a plethora of lovely handmade jewellery (including the cutest brooches), comfy cushions and unique accessories.

 

I immediately spotted this über-chic vintage-style bunting necklace and couldn’t believe the array of different colours, patterns and sizes available (not to mention the price – what a bargain!). I think this would be the ideal accessory to complement my patriotic red, white and blue Jubilee outfit – what says Jubilee celebration more than classic bunting?!

The queen of this store is Nicola B, who carefully handcrafts all her products and can personalise items for special orders. I especially like these floral-print letter necklaces and have added it to my birthday wish-list (take note hubby!).

 

So having chosen my favourite style bunting – this gorgeous one below called ‘Picnic in Paris’ – I got in touch with the very friendly and ultra-helpful shop owner Nicola and she rushed an order to me in super-fast time to make sure it arrived in plenty of time before the jubilee. It was so beautifully packaged and even her business card is a work of art!

 And you won’t believe the compliments I’ve already received whilst wearing it; its such a cute girly look and everyone tells me they adore the necklace, so I think it’s the perfect head-turner, not just for this weekend but for the whole summer long! Check out her Etsy store The Catkin Boutique as soon as you get the chance 🙂
