Whenever we have a new laser cut in Ryantown they literally fly off the walls. This time Rob has produced a limited edition laser cut especially for The Victoria & Albert Museum. They are all signed and numbered in an edition of 500 and will be sold EXCLUSIVELY in the V & A shop and V & A website only, available from this Wednesday 15th September.

Both the sun and the dogs were out along Columbia Road on Sunday and there was a wonderfully happy and relaxed atmosphere along the street. Barney the camera shy but gorgeously friendly Border Terrier was back, Rachel and her lovely dog Daisy, and Herman ( the German ) a beautiful silver dapple dachshund. If this carries on I might need to invest in some doggie treats for the shop.
Rob's beautiful needlepoint wallhanging produced in collaboration with The Rug Company, mentioned in an earlier post and hanging impressively behind the counter in Ryantown, has been nominated in the Best British Pattern section of the 2010 British Design Awards. Wow, that was a long sentence. If you'd like to vote for Rob or any of the other designers you can do so HERE

I took this photograph a few weeks ago when the sun was shining and we had beautiful shadows cast all through the shop, including this one from the window. It might not look all that impressive..... and you might need to have been there.... but it was rather lovely. Honestly!
