I needed a tea cozy. This is well-constructed, fits my teapot as advertised, arrived safely and promptly, and is a charming modern print of "Little Red Riding Hood". My afternoons are elevated.

Great shopping experience. Needed a custom item and the help I received was outstanding. The tea cozy is perfect and so pretty. I was on a tight schedule and was so happy it arrived in good time. Highly recommended all round. Thank you!

The evolution of Bluebell and the Fox

Bluebell and the Fox opened mid November, 2012. I am also a painter, but have sewn since I was a very young girl. I have always loved to make any number of different things. I began selling dresses when I was only fifteen, selling hand over fist Renaissance hippy dresses in a boutique in Carmel that was called The Golden Door. My paternal grandmother taught me to appreciate beauty and peacefulness and gave me a strong aesthetic education. My maternal grandmother was always knitting and embroidering and she taught me how to do these things. I have played with fabrics much of my life. I love making things that evoke childhood and so, a few years ago I began selling things as an alumni at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, where I had taken my degree in painting. I discovered I had a market for the things I am selling here in Etsy. It gives me great joy to bring a little more sweetness to the world during times of distress and upheaval. It is with a kind heart and warm gratitude to have an environment here that fosters creativity and whimsy. So, given that I also have a passion for cooking, it is kind of like soul food for the eyes to offer pretty, delicate, sometimes funny, sometimes poetic and romantic things that take one back in time to a place of innocence and wonder.

I use American, English, Japanese, Australian Aboriginal fabrics and support American made products as much as I can.

Feel free to ask for any kind of custom order and if I am able to oblige I will do my best.

Saying that, custom orders are only accepted with detailed information, and openness to communication about measurements is essential towards making something that will fit as perfectly as is possible. So far things have gone splendidly well.
