Music to make you smile!

Some of you might of already heard Francois and The Atlas Mountains, especially if you are an avid Radio 6 listener! Mark and Maconie have been championing their latest single Les Plus Beaux for the past couple of months and we want to join in! Their album El Volo Love has been blasting through the speakers in the Gallery and making many a customer tap their feet, we can't blame them though! It's such bittersweet sunshine infused music with great african style drums and eletcro pop synths.  We would recommend anyone with the winter blues to go check them out live...the music makes you want to dance about like a kid on summer holidays, the fact that the guys dance about in shiny disco outfits definately helps!!!

Ok, so the whole world must now be waiting for the lunch time update on #pancakes for 3 meals in one day, well the wait is over!  Beardie Man, Birdie and Red Door-ettes had a lovely pancake with a morrocan style finish - perfectly presented on our keep-it-for-Sunday-Best Donna Wilson plates (they are usually on the wall).  Can't believe it's been over a year since Sarah Kelk made us a farewell banquett, that would be the last time we had pancakes here!

#pancakes, for three meals in one day?  Perhaps a foolish quest, certainly not one the ole waistline will thank you for but just the thought of it rekindles a latent sense of rebellion not felt since the heady days of primary school midnight feast's. 

So this morning's jolly effort is shown below, an adaptation of Kate Sutton's marvelous recipie shown above (£10).  We did have maple syrup as Kate reccomends but the result of our mini dispute (the vegetarian Vs the omnivour) led us to opt for blueberries, maple syrup, youhurt AND optional cripsy bacon.  A little too much you say?  Wait till lunch time...

Late Valentine? We Heart The List

We  have had a lot to shout about over the last couple of weeks and The List Magazine seems to agree with us!  The wise and well read out there will already have Feburary's copy, and yes we are a little tardy in telling you about the fantastic Valentine's spread they did... but well better late than never!  In amongst other top treats you will find Zena's Yes/No decision maker necklace £18, Stuart Gardiner's Love/Hate oven Mit £16 or £25 the pair, Andy Smith's 'Lonely Goldfish' limited edition Screen print £50, Mengsel's 'Hello' lmited edition screen print £40 and the pun-tastic collection of cards fresh from Full Fat Cards.... rumour has it The Guardian has also been shouting about Full Fat Cards, so they are now even more firmly on our One To Watch List... oh yes we have one, we do.
If your Valentine let you down or your just a little late like us... drop us an email and we'll stop, wrap and post on demand.

January seemed to be the month for ‘Stag heads’ here at the Red Door Gallery. After the listing of Wooden Tree’s fantastic Mr Stag in January’s edition of ‘Country Living Magazine’,  we’ve been inundated with orders for Mr Stag from the leafier parts of the UK. To complement this, we’ve just taken stock of  some super cool SUPERFAUNA 3D Stag heads, which we have photographed hanging proudly in the Gallery. They are made from 100% brown cardboard, are easy to assemble from flat pack and come in some really cool packaging! They are available in 3 sizes from £36 to £76.50!
