Welcome to 'Loll&Lie', the homegrown vintage cushion company which produces handmade vintage cushions from fabrics which I have been collecting for several years. Each cushion is backed with beautiful 100% linen fabric chosen to co-ordinate or contrast with the vintage fronts. Cushion pads are goose/duck down but can also be made with hypo-allergenic fillings and concealed zips are used for discreet openings. Please be patient while I continue to set up this blogspot! Once it is fully up and running, customers will be able to place orders through the 'Loll&Lie' shop. I am also intending to provide a 'bespoke cushion' service where customers will be able to view fabric collections and choose their own colour/pattern combinations to co-ordinate with their home interiors. Until then, if anyone has any questions, please feel free to send e-mails via the blogspot
We took a trip to Rye on the South Coast and to Camber Sands, a vast expanse of beach then on to the extraordinary Dungeness, a National Nature Reserve and one of the largest expanses of shingle in the world. The area around it plays host to a small village, two nuclear power stations, the world's smallest public railway and an important ecological site. Old Fishermans huts and boats scatter the beach, most of them abandoned many years ago. Perhaps the most famous house in Dungeness is Prospect Cottage, formerly owned by the late artist and film director Derek Jarman. The cottage itself is painted black, with a poem, part of John Donne's "The Sunne Rising", written on one side in black lettering. The garden however is the main attraction. Reflecting the bleak, windswept landscape of the peninsula, Derek Jarman's Garden is made of pebbles, driftwood, scrap metal and a few hardy plants. Here are some photos I wanted to share.
