We threw a mini goodbye tea party for two of our interns who are leaving us today. I made some devils food cupcakes with caramel frosting last night from my Magnolia bakery recipe book and intern Lucy bought some party rings and it was a good excuse to use all the crockery from our 1930's table at the Pop-Up Tea Shoppe. Here are a few parting words from the gals themselves...
Hey I'm Juliana and i'm a Foundation Arts student at LCC and i'm going to be studying graphic design and illustration next year. (Blind Date style introduction over!) I started my internship a month ago and the time has gone so quickly! I've visited new places, helped out at events and done oodles of shiny new things I never thought i'd be doing! Some of these including making 40ft of bunting (which consists of 240 triangles!), sewing lots and lots of mini teabags and of course learning to make jewellery! The Pop-Up Tea Shoppe was great fun to take part in and the whole place did look splendid (especially with the bunting...) and was a huge success. Studio time has been great also and of course the 1950/60s music, cupcakes and tea have been a highlight! Also I think by now Harriet and I know all the words to "Love Potion Number 9" in Japanese.
Hello my name is Harriet! I am currently a fashion student from Manchester Metropolitan University and for the past three weeks I have been interning at Lady luck Rules OK! This is my first ever placement and it has been a wonderful experience! During my 3 weeks at Lady Luck Rules OK I have done a variety of things! The first week I helped with the 'pop up tea shoppe'! I made cute little aprons to sell and washed many an antique tea pot all in preparation for the big day! And boy what a day it was as the tea shop was a massive success! I have learnt so many skills during my experience from how to make jewellery, to running a small business and where to find bargains in London. But sadly my three weeks are now up! I have really enjoyed my time here from the daily studio antics with my fellow internies (yes now I do know love potion number 9 in Japanese) and learning valuable tricks of the trade. Thanks so much Leona, Sam and Laura! And yes Lady Luck does Rule OK!
I could only find Nancy Sit singing it in English on You Tube but it gives you a general idea!
