The Christmas collection is now here – with some old faves like the Mistletoe Lamp and some great newcomers like our Embroidered Linen Robin Tree Decoration. Some other great new pieces are also now up – hope you like them! And thanks to the amazing Max Attenborough for shooting everything for us!
Christmas arrives at Pheasant…
You’ll find beautiful glass pieces on our NEW THINGS! page at the moment which we have here in limited supply – just one of each piece shown! From a pretty pink glass cygnet to delicate glass baubles perfect for catching the light hanging in a window – all mouthblown in Masham. UPDATE – Blue & purple heart paperweight SOLD; Pink heart paperweight SOLD
New cushions we know you’ll love…
So here they are – our 3 new cushion designs – handmade in York and beautifully-made they are too! They’re a substantial size at 50cm x 50cm, and made from pure new wool (the exclusive-to-Pheasant I heart Yorkshire cushion is made from an amazingly textured organic wool), with blanket stitching details and more. All come with a traditional plump feather pad. At £65 each normally, we’re offering them at an introductory £55 with free P&P (usually £5) at the moment, so grab yours whilst you can here!
2012 – the year I made it to Masham…for 1 afternoon
Last week saw one of our annual trips up to Masham – one of the most beautiful villages in North Yorkshire - and as soon as we arrived (after a trip to Ripon where we bought up most of Hornseys’ between us all) we enjoyed a wander around some of the gorgeous little galleries, a coffee outside at Suncatchers where we watched the bustling Saturday market, and a sneaky half of Theakstons at Black Bull in Paradise:
And then on Sunday morning…. I got thrown off a horse. Badly broken knee and the rest of the week was spent in Middlesborough Hospital. So no sourcing new things for Pheasant, no multiple visits to Brymor for icecream, no trips to our favourite villages and walks along the river in Masham with the dog. Bettys came to the rescue in hospital though…
So we promise to have new things on the site very very soon, bear with us whilst I learn how to walk again first! We have some beautiful new “I Love Yorkshire” cushions, designed exclusively for us which I cannot wait to get up on the site. As a little treat whilst working mainly from bed this month (!), we’d like to offer anyone spending over £20 on a phone order until 30th June, a free handmade (in West Tanfield) soap!
We are here next Saturday 14th April!
We haven’t been out and about for a little while, so hope to see you here – Hither Green in SE London – next Saturday 14th April – LOTS of new things, and a stroke of the new Pheasant mascot, Monty the 4 month-old whippet are up for grabs!

Happy New Year (nearly)!
Trees for Charity
We’re doing our bit for charity this Christmas, helping an extremely worthy cause – the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, who re-build the Dales – planting trees, re-building dry stone walls, restoring meadows – fantastic. £1 from the sale of each of these new hand-knitted Christmas tree decorations will go towards the YDMT, apparently specifically towards an ongoing woodland restoration project near Pateley Bridge in Nidderdale. Very exciting indeed. So treat yourself to a knitted tree for your Christmas tree and help towards planting a real one.
2 Stanley designs…
Here are the current couple of Stanley Cushions we have in stock as a few of you have been asking. They’ve got yummy light brown corduroy reverses too. Ready to send out as a Christmas pressie when you are!
NEW Homemade Felt Christmas Puds
Bit of amateur photography going on here but we wanted to get these up on the site as soon as possible! They’re hand-stitched from felt and with wired leaves which you can bend into shape. The berries are acrylic beads, and the puds are stuffed with a few cloves for a hint of festive frarance. Pop one in the centre of the dinner table or on a side table with your bowl of walnuts - Christmas is coming! See them on the site here.
