New stockist: Mr Feather's Den

Announcements Stockists

Mr Feather's Den is one of my favourite shops in Featherston. Other than it's genius name I love it because it's filled with beautiful things, displays many products in colour themes and has great window displays.

Glory be: a pretty pretty Emma Makes update


I recently decided that I wanted to do something to make my Emma Makes website a little more homely and welcoming. I love the clean photos and the styling but something was missing ...
