Nothing says summer like Wimbledon, and how great that Wimbledon fortnight kicked off yesterday with our British defending Champion Andy Murray getting a standing ovation as he arrived on court!
Thank goodness, as with England out of the World Cup we need some other British heroes to cheer on and support.
If you fancy getting patriotic then check out our Union Jack Bunting and our Red, White and Blue hammocks available from presentlocker.com – just add the strawberries and cream!
We have a birthday today at presentlocker.com. Charlie is now 14 and along with his electric ukelele (loud), he is loving his new thermochromic faze t shirt in green, that we gave him from our collection!! It changes colour from green to yellow with warmth, so hand prints everywhere!! No wonder teenagers love them!
Owning a gift website when it comes to birthdays has its advantages, as we always manage to find something for everyone, and hopefully manage to bring a beaming smile to the birthday boy or girls face!!
Everyone has got some type of fever at the moment! Whether its Hayfever or World Cup Fever, both keep you firmly indoors! Did you see how much luggage Colleen Rooney had with her this morning on her arrival in Brazil! Lets hope she works her magic, otherwise it will all be coming home later this week, untouched! Come on England!
What a wonderfully sunny week and a truly blazing Friday!! With this truly sunny weather set to continue over the weekend how about having a go at this refreshing, yet simple, lemonade recipe!! We love it here at presentlocker.com. It tastes even more amazing served in our six mini milk bottles in a crate, all topped off with our retro stripey straws!! Slurp, slurp!
3 unwaxed lemons, roughly chopped
140g caster sugar
1l cold water
Tip the lemons, sugar and half the water into a food processor and blend until the lemon is finely chopped.
Pour the mixture into a sieve over a bowl, then press through as much juice as you can. Top up with the remaining water and serve with plain ice or with frozen slices of lemon and lime!! Enjoy.
Thank goodness for a couple of days of sun! We met with Zanna from Olive Blue Jewellery yesterday and looked through her latest designs. All her work is fantastic and will be with us in a matter of days. Some gorgeous pieces for the summer so keep an eye out for their arrival.
Great that we now have Pete Seawards work up on the site , – just amazing photography from Pete who is such an accomplished photographer. We ar thrilled with his canvases and cushions.
We are so pleased to be launching our new blog just as we start working with some fantastic new talent! You will have seen Faze T Shirts which are new to presentlocker.com this week, innovative T shirts that change colour in reaction to heat! Watch this space for some other new talent we have signed up recently!
In case you wonder, we (Sarah and Fiona) live and work in Oxfordshire and each have various children/dogs and husbands. presentlocker.com is our passion and our mission is to hunt out the talented and original, the beautiful and practical (sometimes!). We work with new companies(Nigel Turner Designs & Faze T shirts) & well established firms (Nkuku & House Doctor) and are always on the lookout for something or someone different.
It’s been hard work starting the website from scratch, we had some ups and downs and a few tears and tantrums along the way. We hope you like the site, please let us know what you think.
