For Ria Ford of local business Zambella, living in South Africa for 10 years exposed her to the beaded arts movement. Using recycled items to create handmade gifts, it supports a community of more than 450 artists. The best part? The products are now selling on the Down That Little Lane website and I'm showcasing them (and other wares) today on the blog.
For as long as I can remember I have loved everything about Britain. And no, it has nothing to do with that Union Jack dress Ginger Spice wore at the Brits that time (though I’m sure it helped). There is just something so wonderfully charming about British homewares. Founder of SE10 Gallery, Sam Cannell, clearly shares my fondness for all things UK, because she’s opened a gorgeous online homewares store that celebrates it!
