Rosewill Cottage is a shop based in Whitley Bay which has a large selection of beads and findings sourced from all over the World, by owner Dawn McLean!  Dawn is also a jewellery artisan who creates handmade jewellery under the name of Rosewill Charms.   

Dawn is currently running a 'rent a square' scheme which you can read all about here!  This is a great opportunity for handmade designers from the UK to "showcase their hand crafted goods in a shop environment".  Miss Bohemia is proud to be a part of this innovative idea and a selection of my designs can now be found at Rosewill Cottage!

Some of the designs in the shop are not yet available online and include keepsake boxes and earrings as pictured below

Shop makeover for Miss Bohemia

Miss Bohemia Logo

Some exciting news to share with you from Miss Bohemia :-)

I finally have a new logo and website banner! My ever expanding wish list for the design included vintage, whimsical, fantasy, fairytales, romantic, Victorian, regal, shabby chic, fun, pretty and much more!

While browsing through Etsy, I came across a shop called 'EphemerasGarden'!  It's full of amazing digital designs including website avatars, banner, business card templates and collage elements.  After contacting 'Debbie' (the Owner of this amazing shop), we discussed ideas, designs and styles.  She also looked at the jewellery and accessories on my website and was very intuitive in creating the visual illustration and design that would encompass the multifaceted aspects of Miss Bohemia! 

Website snapshot

I love my website banner! It's whimsical, vintage, regal, pretty, mystical, magical and all that good stuff! Debbie also created a complementary logo, business cards/thank you notes and matching jewellery cards! I've included a snapshot of the new website makeover (see above) but I'm also thinking of having a complementary background page added to my website!

More exciting news to follow in the next blog post but here's a 'sneak peak' clue below!

I've been feeling rather exhausted lately, probably from working too hard :-) I think a great treat is in order and just like my profile will tell you, I am addicted to sugary sweet treats!  The ones I want to share with you today are all calorie free! 


The gorgeous treats I've feature throughout this post are from handmade artisans on Folksy and you can find out more about each design by clicking on the pictures.

How about some scrumptious cupcakes?

Another favourite for me which always goes well with cakes or biscuits or anytime really, is 'tea'. My favourites range from green tea to Earl Grey and even Lavender tea! I can't forget that tea also features highly in one of my much loved childhood books 'Alice In Wonderland'!
