It has been an exciting week here at Hardwick Country Store.
We have been searching for a new greeting card brand for a while. While checking out Joules ‘Friends of Joules’ we came across Eleanor Tomlinson Art.
Yorkshire born and bred, Eleanor Tomlinson is a traditional artist and illustrator based in East Yorkshire. Her artwork is inspired by the beautiful Yorkshire countryside she has grown up amongst, and all the wildlife found within it. Her pieces have also been developed into a wide range of cards, stationery, limited edition prints and homeware. Eleanor’s distinctive style using ink and watercolour, combines traditional, well-loved subjects with a contemporary, illustrative twist.
Her illustrations suit our customers to the T. Country sports, country classics, and country pets! Not only that, She is a local girl! As a small business, we love to support local and small business as much as we can in any format. Our first order has arrived and we love them. There really is something for everyone. We even got a couple of Christmas cards. My personal favourite has the different dogs looking at the Christmas cake. Her detail on the cards are amazing.
Christmas can be seen as stressful. Who knows what to get the sister in law or the other halves grandma? Do not worry, everyone loves a hot drink, whether its a coffee, hot chocolate or the famous YORKSHIRE tea. Luckily this is where Eleanor Tomlinson steps up. She has designed some beautiful country china mugs and we stock two designs, the classic tractors & the stable essentials. You really can’t do any harm getting someone a mug for Christmas.
Look out on our website for her cards. Or if you can’t wait, call into our shop to check them out.
Speak to you later…
A very recent visit to the Holy Island on our way back from Edinburgh brought it home to me just how many people are walking about with a newly acquired dog/puppy, most of them would appear to be some sort of appropriately named poo. We were practically the only car in the carpark without a furry companion. Now I love to pat a puppy and my grandchild was in seventh heaven with all the dogs and it was encouraging to see such well turned out dogs with an assortment state of the art dog harnesses and coats. Keeping active dogs fit and healthy is an important aspect of caring for your pet and hopefully avoiding potentially crippling vet bills so introducing a suitable feed is vital. Breeders always give advice on the food that your puppy has been weened on and while it is sensible to keep the food the same there is a wealth of foods both of the wet and dry varieties to choose from. We stock locally produced Burgess Dog food as our Premium Brand and feel confident that it is a well balanced dry mix and we have witnessed lots of happy pups develop into healthy dogs and enjoy an active long life. Now where can we buy a puppy?
