Just a quickie to let you know about a wee bit of wednesday afternoon reading "channelling granny chic with crocheted pot holders".

Granny chic crochet by Emma Lamb as featured on Apartment Therapy | Emma Lamb

Yesterday morning I got an unexpected request from the lovely Beth Zeigler, a contributing editor for Apartment Therapy LA, she wanted to do a wee feature about my wall of pot holders. So exciting, I've never had a wee feature before! Thank you Beth for your lovely words and I love the new term 'granny chic'... :)

Oh, and if you do pop by for a wee read make sure you check out the comments, none of us are without our critics!? ;)

Emma, x

  1. well, despite what people have said i think they are great x

  2. hello.....some of them don't pull any punches do they? or never heard of the saying "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all"
    oh well.....i think it's a lovely feature, they look so cute!

  3. Never mind Emma, I quite liked them when I read your original post. There's always going to be "haters" out there once you're publicly exposed. It happens to all of us. And may I add that I have often used the term "granny chic" myself.

  4. Ha, ha, they are such a bunch of design snobs. Remember unless you sprinkle the words Eames or Thonet through your conversation they just don't want to know! These are gorgeous! I have sent the link to all my sisters (we all have a collection of potholders from our Nana). I came over from that original post on AT. Glad they featured you!

  5. Hey that's great, Emma! Didn't I tell you--I thought they looked like they belonged in a magazine or a design blog! :)

    As for the pompous naysayers, they probably like sterile, cold, chrome, uncomfortable decor--I'd prefer crochet any day :)

    Talk to you soon!

  6. How rude people can be! If something's not to your taste, surely you just surf on by until you find something else which is? Oh, to have that much waste-able time!

    Personally, I really love them, especially displayed together as a group - there's definite strength in their number, especially as no two are the same. Up with granny chic, I say. :)

  7. Congratulations!

    The comments are too funny! What a lot of whingeing design-nerds! I like the last comment I saw, that that site is the wrong audience for your (gorgeous) craft. Here, here. I am guessing that none of them came to your blog to see the pieces in context?!

  8. Oh my goodness...
    Still in shock....
    I adore your "granny" wall and all it represents...
    It looks fantastic...I would love to have a collection as impressive as yours...great work!!!

  9. Congrats on the wee feature Emma. Well deserved... these look amazing!!

  10. I'm a bit shocked by the granny attack over at AT. Always best to get people talking though I reckon. I love them and good on your for getting featured.

  11. Congratulations Emma! They are so lovely and totally unique! Now Spanner can go and brag to his mates about his super talented and famous mistress!

  12. Hello. Just checking out new blogs and really like yours. Feel free to come check out mine if you'd like. :D

  13. dearest emma, it has taken me a wee while to get 'up to date' with the 'granny chic bashing' that has been going on...
    being a buyer of your lovely crocheted wares i feel most qualified in saying those commentators really don't have a 'clue' what they are talking about... your crocheted potholders and cushions are breathtakingly beautiful and your images are a 'delight' for the eyes.

    do not allow their words to deter you from bringing 'granny chic' to the world. there are plenty of us waiting with open arms to embrace it...
    from your 'potholdering' buddy,
    Tif x
