Throughout the summer i would often take a drive along a road that was spotted with wineries, orchards +…. honey boxes. And being the usual way of things…i never seemed to have my camera on me at the right time ~ grrrrr. Here were these rustic lil busy bee honey making havens in all odd colours like chartreuse, blues + aquas…in between picturesque fruiting trees…would have made the bestest award winning snapshot!
So inspired by these gorgeous honey boxes, i created a Humphred in the same colour scheme! All i needed was some fabulous woolly goodness....

Chartreuse tweed was always Byrce's favourite. He had great plans to recover all the sofa seats in his 1960 Airstream trailer, only he had way to much of the stuff! Lucky for us…there was enough to make a few Humphreds + a couple lil things! Thanks Bryce for over calculating!!
Honey chartreuse on the front, and a bubbly heavier chartreuse tweed on the back, makes for one smart handsome Mr!
All trimmings + handmade bias binding were handcrafted from a most dapper preloved Navy blue home linens
And those buttons….found them at 'Button Crazy'…a business that is totally dedicated to vintage buttons, run by Miss Darlene (you might remember i visited her a lil while back)
Anyways Humphred definitely fits my Mollie Makes, map of warm places + my brown pen quite nicely. And yes he is currently available in the Sparky Jones Etsy shoppe!
