To kick off my thousandth post celebrations, I am delighted to have Camilla’s work for my first giveaway! Yes, my good friend Camilla Westergaard is the talented designer behind the amazing Butterscotch & Beesting.
Here is a little about the magical world of Butterscotch & Beesting:
Butterscotch + Beesting is a product of imagination. It’s the story of the most magnificent, most magical circus ever imagined, as told through prints, pattern and illustrations.
The person telling the tale is Camilla (that’s me!). Since I was a very small girl, I’ve been utterly in love with drawing, colour, patterns and most of all, storytelling. One day I whisked these together and . . . ta da! . . . the circus of Miss Betty Butterscotch and Mr Bumblewick Beesting appeared (as if by magic).
The adventures of the Butterscotch & Beesting Circus and those who perform under its triangular tents are told across a series of homewares, including cushions, lampshades, ceramics and a little bit of stationery too.
Each product comes with its own mini-story so you can disappear into the mysterious world of Mr Beesting (circus ringmaster and conjurer of worldwide renown), join the delightful Miss Butterscotch (a trapeze artist turned confectioner upon acquiring a quite unexpected fear of heights) as she gazes longingly into the heights of the big top, or marvel at the curious creatures created following encounters with a wand-wielding monkey.
Who wants to run away with the circus? ME!
I am in LOVE with every item in Camilla’s shop. I also love that each product range has not only a title but a little story behind it too.
My favourite is the new ‘Enter the Magician’ range (the lampshade above)… here is it’s story:
The big top is dark, the audience is seated, boys and girls hold tight to candyfloss sticks and fly-high balloons. All of a sudden, a cloud appears, its bright strobes reaching the very edges of the tent to reveal a top-hatted magician standing by the ring. Enter Mr Bumblewick Beesting, the most magical conjurer who ever lived (and rather dashing he is too).
Are you in love yet?
