Our wonderful feature on 'Petal to Petal' by Lily Reilly

We were thrilled when artist and designer Lily Reilly kindly offered to write a feature about Daisies Blue on her creative blog Petal to Petal. Below is a little sneak peek at the article ...

'Magnolia' Vintage Crochet Doily Bunting

'Willow and Snowdrop' Vintage Crochet Doily Bunting

If you are a lover of our delicate lacy crochet doilies then I am sure you will enjoy taking a look at the beautiful work of Lily Reilly herself. As you can see from her detailed illustrations, Lily is fond of flowers. Based in the countryside of West Cork, Ireland, Lily creates surface pattern designs and illustrations for the greetings and home-ware industries. I just love her repeating, swirling little flowers that together create something rather beautiful!

Hand Embroidered Vintage Linen Tablecloth Bunting

For a while now we have been excitedly collecting beautiful hand embroidered floral tablecloths. The delicate and stunning detail in some is breathtaking, if only we could congratulate the individual original creators on such amazing handiwork. 

We have created a range of flag bunting designs from our vintage finds and have complemented this detailed hand-embroidery with a little strip of cotton lace. Below are a selection of pictures for you to browse.

A Beautiful Baby's Bedroom!

We were absolutely delighted to find out a length of our doily bunting was purchased to decorate a little boy's nursery. Below are a selection of photographs we recently received. You will no doubt agree that this stunning bedroom really does do our bunting justice. It is so lovely to see our designs decorating homes around the world ... we just had to share them with you. Enjoy!

Please meet beautiful little Maris Alexander, so sweet that Maris means 'star of the sea'. This little treasure is one lucky boy.
