It's starting to feel very Autumnal back in London, and so my thoughts turn to markets, the open studio and the Christmas build up - the busiest time of year for me. It's less about the making , designing and printing now and all about SELL SELL SELL!

I start tomorrow at The Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane - The London Artisan is a great event, organised by DesignerMakers I particularly like it because all the stalls are real people selling their own stuff - nothing mass produced and nothing imported!

The lovely little market 'Cabbages and Frocks' in the churchyard at the top of Marylebone High St (opposite the Conran shop) always goes a bit quiet in the holiday time, especially when it is as wet as it was yesterday. Even the tourists just hurry through on their way to the warmer and drier shopping on the High Street.

Despite this, my new 'Rebecca's Cupboard' tote was a hit - everyone needs a good bag for shopping these days; my little contribution to the war against plastic. They are also also great for holidays and travels.

Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. 

The ethos for my business is inspired by my hero; William Morris whose vision was to link art to industry by applying the values of fine art to the production of commercial design, he was a key figure in the evolution of design as we know it today.

William Morris was an artist, designer, printer, typographer, bookbinder, craftsman, poet, writer and champion of socialist ideals. (Busy guy!)
