Where does she start?

In the Christmas Atelier

The Fairy Factory

A peak into the V V Rouleaux Christmas Atelier...

If you ask Annabel where she gets her inspiration, she says "well we head up into the barn, root around for a few props, and then just get plonking!"

You need to revist your childhood to get started so we built a fairy factory because at V V Rouleaux there are endless bits and bobs, and well why not!

We want it to be frosty to create those wonderful winter mornings when you can see your breath and not feel your toes!

Then how about a bed of flowers and squawking parrots, Christmas is always noisy and full of colour.


The Flower Bed
A Frosty Mantel
Our Choir
The old thresher's mantelpiece
Once a florist...
We will need some mushrooms


We shall sing a few carols, and with a bit of luck pull the sledge with bucket loads of poinsettias for in and out of the house to remind Annabel of her early mornings in Covent Garden market.


Mantelpieces could be be draped in fir garlands and covered with woodland mushrooms and berries. They are going to be fun and overwhelming!




A full moon for our hooting owls


An old apple branch for our owls and what's Christmas without a puzzle.


So that's a quick tour around Annabel's imagination for Christmas, an endless riot for the festivities.


Come down to Marylebone Lane and have fun...or browse the website and send you a V V cheer!


Many thanks as always to Flo at Flo Brooks Photography
