Beautiful Balloons

Hot off the press (the fabric printing version) is our new Hiccups printed bed linen design for girls - 'Beautiful Balloons'

Did you know?
The very first hot air balloon flight took place in the French countryside near Versailles in 1783 and its first passengers were a lamb, a hen and a duck?

Hot air balloons gently drifting in the morning breeze are a beautiful sight to behold. This design from Hiccups features an array of colourful and delicately patterned balloons floating above a serene rural landscape.

'Beautiful Balloons' wall-stickers and accessories.

From the Attic

Here are a few images of a beautiful patchwork quilt belonging to my boss Michele (who grew up in the United States). It was made in the 1940's by Michele's grandmother and looks as vibrant as the day it was finished. I love the brightly coloured tiny floral prints.

 The middle section of the quilt is made up of men's shirting fabrics in various shades of blue.

Well, I think so anyway.... (Serving suggestions only!)
