I was lucky enough to capture a few beautiful pieces handcrafted by Suzy Mugridge from Ted & Lily for a photo session for Peony & Sage. I captured the cushions at Bank Cottage in the Cotswolds, England and the scented hearts in our courtyard at Casa Capanni, in beautiful Tuscan light. As soon I had unwrapped them, I could see and feel the intricate detail and the love with which these items had been made. Also, these scented hearts smell delicious! I was so happy that I got to keep them! I really admire this craftsmanship. Suzy makes bespoke lampshades, lamp bases, cushions and lots of other lovely homewares and gifts such as these hearts in her workroom in Somerset (she lives in the most stunning thatched cottage!). She uses beautiful linens from select British designers, such as Peony & Sage. You can place orders by contacting her directly but a lot of her creations are also available in the Peony & Sage webshop.
