Teresa Cole has long been a favourite designer of mine. A lover of "elongated watering cans and apple ladders", Teresa's work marries beauty with functionality, often featuring utilitarian objects such as ladles and weighing scales inspired by her passion for antique kitchenallia. She sources all her fabrics within the UK and Ireland and uses only water-based inks for printing.
Although I love virtually everything that comes out of her old stable block (gorgeous girls' dresses, aprons, cushions, tea towels and table linen, you really must take a peek!), I've chosen to show you a few of her simple but beautiful greetings cards, which make a nice change for birthdays and would also look lovely framed, grouped together in a child's room.
C'mon, everyone likes egg and soldiers, don't they?
