The site is filled with beautiful products inspired by the past and features this irresistibly naughty little dog called Bertie, who loves the limelight and appears in many of Plum and Ashby’s photo-shoots! You’ll find a whole host of stylish […]

Woodland Creatures and Fisherman Bob

Posted on 22. Mar, 2012 by .


Woodland creatures, Terriers, Sea Otters and the odd fisherman are part of the collection of pins created by the English illustrator and print maker Elizabeth Pawle . Each cute little badge features an original illustration drawn in sharp black ink onto crisp white plastic. Just couldn’t resist slipping in ‘Fisherman Bob’ and the ‘Little Swimmer’ […]

Abraza Cortinas

Posted on 01. Mar, 2012 by .


I’m not sure whether this is the correct translation, but ‘abraza cortinas’ means ’embracing the curtain’ and that’s exactly what these little creatures do. The arms (and legs, in the case of the kitty) are created extra long to wrap around your curtains to keep them tidy. I love them, I can’t get over what […]

Bostons, Bulldogs, Corgis and lots of Sausages

Posted on 20. Feb, 2012 by .


I have a very soft spot for Dachshunds. At one time there were four in our house, of the miniature long-haired variety, so anything embellished with a sausage dog always gets a second look from me! I’ve been a long time fan of Cuore and love the new bags they have in store. Coin zipper […]

Bostons and Bows

Posted on 02. Nov, 2011 by .


It sounds like Boston terriers Duke and Daisy are responsible for their mum Stitchy Witchy Designs whipping up these whimsical designs on fabric. Apparently, while making bags, purses, aprons, pillows and more Duke and Daisy sit by, mostly snoring on her lap and I can’t think of a better way to be inspired to create […]

Leather accessories designer Anna Maria Nemeth creates the nicest bags, but she also creates these luxurious pieces that would fit fantastically in to any dog-loving home. Using quality leather, the big Bassett works great as a comfortable bench to sit on or put your feet up, and the Boxer offers a novel place to park […]

I’m sure that you absolutely know by now that I love them – Welsh, Fox, Airedales… ahhhhhh, little Terriers – and especially sweet little Noodles. This little guy who is part of the Forever Foxed team pawsonally approves all the greeting cards, badges and gifts created by Forever Foxed so they are just bound to […]

With Love from Liberty

Posted on 06. Jul, 2011 by .


These precious ornamental pooches crafted by Emma Bridgwater come as pairs. Inspired by her own labrador-lurchers they are available in polka dot or love letter print and are exclusive to one of my absolute fave stores, Liberty of London. Liberty always has stacks of quirky British artists and companies filling the store and Quail is one of […]

Radley Scotties

Posted on 29. May, 2011 by .


It’s been just about a year since I last posted about Radley Bags and ever since London Fashion Week with these wonderful images I’ve had a hankering to replace my long time ‘Radley’ friend. The company has now released a new collection and hopefully all of them will have the much-desired Scottie Dog attached! Radley the […]

Take Note

Posted on 06. Apr, 2011 by .


I have scraps of paper everywhere and a whole purse full of odd notes and drawings that at some point made sense. Obviously, at the time of jotting it down I must have felt it was very useful information and I think if all these scribblings had been kept in one place they would make for fun […]

cat nose

Not to be sniffed at…

Posted on 17. Mar, 2011 by .


Poppet’s nose has always been one of my favourite things about her! As with most grey Tabby cats it is very distinct in that it looks like it has been outlined in mascara. Posh Poppet always walks around with her nose in the air and looking very elegant so when I saw these cat and […]

If you’re a regular reader of Under the blanket you will know that I’ve been a fan of Edwyn UK for a while and have featured them several times before, (you can see the old posts here and here). I first found Edwyn through my love of Welsh Terriers, the Fox Terrier and Airedales. Edwyn is a […]

From Brass Hooks to Book Ends

Posted on 23. Nov, 2010 by .


I’ve been checking around for pet related gifts and found that there is an abundance of them, but I loved these items I saw on Anthropologie. From brass hooks and book ends to picture frames and pet beds, there’s a great choice! I have to say though, these little hand-finished cast iron Westies are a […]

The writing’s on the wall

Posted on 24. Oct, 2010 by .


All pets have special little areas where they know they can find their bowls of food, litter boxes, leashes and coats etc. Well, now, you can make sure everyone else knows by using these great wall decals made by Hommu. To make sure you never have to search for their ‘walkies’ equipment,  you can dedicate […]

Asher Jasper

Posted on 13. Oct, 2010 by .


All these perfectly plump toys are made from felting natural Merino and Mohair wool. Felting is just so clever and I wish I had the skill or even the patience to be able to create such pieces. Take these teeny weeny ‘eggs’ from Etsy seller Asher Jasper so playful, colourful and full of imagination. I’ve […]

New Mungo and Maud

Posted on 06. Oct, 2010 by .


As you know, I’ve been a huge fan of Mungo and Maud for sometime and have featured just about all of their products already. However, I’m obviously not done yet – take a look at this new canvas pod bag finished with a leather trim. The whole look is very simplistic in a ‘poddy’ kind […]

Walk in the park posh pooch

Posted on 03. Oct, 2010 by .


This little outfit reminds me of something that I would have seen back in the days when I lived in a small English village. There were two sides to the village, the posh side and the not so posh, divided by a busy main road. The posh side came complete with a duck pond which […]
