We love Yvonne Ellen’s new Monochrome Collection.

This new range runs alongside her upcycled vintage tableware, and features animal illustrations on bone china plates finished with black polka dots and gold edge detailing.

Top of our ‘want’ list is her ‘Whale of a Time' plate set. We'd love to see the whale swim across our dinner table. 

Yvonne’s full range is available from her Folksy shop »

Look Ahead Screen Print by Bird House Press on Folksy

House Print No.2, £15 by Simon Smith on Folksy

"In January 2012 I decided that it was time for a new drawing/art-making challenge.

I’d become very aware of just how little we knew of our local area and I was also spending a lot of time indoors stuck behind a desk, so I was keen to find a reason to get out and about a bit more.

So I hit upon the idea of wandering around the locality to find a different house in the area to draw each week, starting with a house numbered 1, and working all the way through to a number 52 in the final week of December 2012.

Each drawing would then be made up into a lino print, with the addition of some text taken from the lyrics of a song on my ipod shuffle, which I’d been listening to as I’d made the original sketches.”

Congratulations to all those clever people who received the A level results they were hoping for today!
