Round of applause. It took him a while to get here but Santa has come to have a well earned sit down and a brandy with Mister Peebles. He popped in to send his best wooly wishes to all for the coming year.
A chilly week has blown across the UK. Furry hats at the ready and what better time to get some handmade presents in your wooly mitts? All this along with a flask of tea (…brandy) in readiness for that fast approaching day.
Designers/Makers are part of The Winter Festival on the Southbank of the Thames. Come and find Mister Peebles amongst charming company at this twinkly gathering.
Oh well well. Mister Peebles is making a new friend in the Crafty Fox this Sunday 9th December (and a DJ badger too) There will be festive presents that no one else will have, tea, cakes, music and beer. What else could you want on a December Sunday?
Get your warmest threads on and some mulled wine in you. It’ll be worth parting with the duvet. Plus then you can warm your PJs on the radiator for when you come home all rosy cheeked and laden with goodies.
Oh tweet tweet. These are a small army of feathered comandos readying themselves for the festive season. Maybe they will join the Silent Knight and guard your Christmas well, perched from a branch or peeping from a wreath.
These and their fellow birds-on-pegs will be on parade at up coming markets.
Made with: Feathered pals, glittery bow ties, tip of the top hat.
It is mid November. This is the time we realise that it is not just retail mania but very almost Christmas countdown season. Festive feelings are brewing. Grab a mulled wine, your woollen what not and go with it.
In this spirit here comes the Silent Knight. Defending the festivities and guarding the gift givers.In shhh we trust.
Mister Peebles was sat at a market in the wonderfully elaborate Chelsea Town Hall last weekend with We Make London. It was a little bit Christmassy which is almost allowed. Almost.
Spitalfields Market in East London will be slightly inappropriately early with the festive stuff this weekend (though it is now cold and dark so lets give in to it) Mister Peebles will be there with a hot water bottle, woollen socks and down jacket to serve up the wares.
Come and grab something mulled and be that person who smugly did their shopping early.
Old Spitalfields, Commerical Street. London. 10th and 11th of chilly November.
It is a busy old few weeks ahead for many and Mister Peebles is no exception. Between keeping his feet warm and watching the weather he is hastily making and doing and printing, for a little run of autumnal markets and nearly-winter activities.
Look out for him fooling about near you. Starting with We Make in London’s Chelsea town hall this Sunday the 4th November. Preparations are underway…
He’ll open up more of his diary shortly. He can be a secretive fellow but he’s learning.
There’s all kind of autumnal spooky what not about, the clocks have gone back and its all a bit scarily late in the year. This is not a problem once you look forward to stew and mulled stuff, radiator warmed pants and boots with big socks on.
