Spring has Sprung!

Well yesterday was such a lovely sunny day and today looks set for more of the same. This can only mean that spring has well and truly finally sprung!

Time to start thinking about warmer weather fashions and this year the trend for shorts keeps on rocking. This season's shorts are high waisted cut and vintage inspired. BoBu Couture is making them in a myriad of textiles and colours from vintage silk taffeta, to kitsch retro prints and bold florals.

Now the weather has picked up, it's time for us fair weather bikers to dust off our saddles and head back onto the open roads. With this in mind, how about this unique and handsome hand stitched saddle bag from Man About Town? It hangs from the bottom of your saddle, with enough space for a puncture repair kit, a spare inner tube or a few tools.

Being as this is Newcastle and for those of us forced to rise bright and early in this fair city, we know all to well, that even on the warmest of spring days, there can be a nip in the air! So the perfect solution to this is a beautiful, unique, hand knitted head wrap. This gorgeous Irish Granny creation is definitely a one-off. Made of very soft 50% lambs wool and 50% acrylic, in subtle yellows with golden brown and green pure wool highlights. Finished with a pretty wooden button.

Don't forget the clocks spring forward this weekend, so here is a little timepiece inspired, bit of Steampunk loveliness, for you to finish off with from Rule Brittania. A Steampunk inspired pendant in gold tones made with vintage clockworks with gold copper wire, pale pink glass pearls and pale pink Swarovski crystals. One-off and original.

Bye for now. See you soon with lots of our special Easter goodies from our talented crafters at Made in Newcastle.
