Well, thought it was maybe time to do a blog!
So a few things about Oakapple & Rose;
It's basically me (Ellie) and my Mum (Barbara) - who was until the purchase of an ipad last month, a Ludite.
I'd been selling some of my handmade things on ebay and getting in a few custom orders, so Mum asked if I'd sell some of her watercolours for her.
Wanted to think of a name that linked us together and as 'Barbie' seemed to be taken already (ahem) I hit on the names of our respective streets. Strictly speaking, Mum's street is 'oakwell' rather than 'oakapple' but a rose in a well would not have made a good logo.................
The O&R logo has been drawn by my husband, who has been a cartoonist in the past!
I'm actually rather fond of it.
Since then I am much more organised at making larger orders!
