When I first started Rascal and Roses my focus was on beautiful painted furniture. Anything that moved got painted. I have to admit this is still the case, but as time has moved on, so has my interest in other things in the house.

My latest love affair is firmly with fabric. Well, that is a bit misleading I have always loved fabric, but now I love more fabric, made by different people and I have certain fabric for certain moods.


So, hand in hand with my love of fabric is my love of beautiful things made from said fabric and thus, in a fit of peak one of my favoiurite Rascal & Roses things came to be; The pheasant oven glove.

The fabric comes from Carrie at Florh & Co and is printed onto Linen from her own drawings. Carrie sketches, then colours, then stitches and then finally sends her pheasants off to be reproduced onto Scottish Linen. The detail is exquisite and it really makes for a pleasing end result.

The oven gloves are perfect country kitchen. They add a bit of pretty, but are still practical and make brilliant christmas presents, especially as home chefs now a days seem to have everything you would ever need for a kitchen – except of course these beauties (available at our store).

I’m working on a whole range of country kitchen, pheasant inspired goods – next on the list are pot holders and probably a single mitt.

I would though be really interested to know what kind of kitchen linens you like/love/hate/need in your life? Do you think tea cosy’s should be banished to the 1950s? Can you not live without yours. Please leave me a comment and then I can plot my next designs! Thanks for calling by.
