New stock

Posted by Alistair Rance on Monday, January 25, 2016,
For this year we are trying to raise our stock levels on some of the wooden slice range. We have already started with the cake stands and several new ranges of key rings with a new Celtic font for initials, Special date key rings, Jig saw peice "you complete me" and new book key rings with our favourite Dr Seuss quote or they can be personalised. All of these will be updated in the gallery and added to the shop soon.
But there is still more ideas and new products bubbling away in the work shop...

off our trolley

Posted by Ali Rance on Tuesday, June 17, 2014,

Well, we are nearly "off" the set up of our shopping trolley. The plan is that our site trolley will be on line very soon, to start with the wedding items will be available. But rest assured it will not be long after that the rest of our range will be available direct through the shopping cart. We still need to hear from you though (we love a chat) for you details and ideas for the items that need personalising. Exciting times :)

More products

Posted by Alistair Rance on Saturday, February 15, 2014,
Hi and where has the time gone??? We will be adding quite a few items over the next month, so try to pop back and check them out.
To tease you all a bit, we have been working on new finishes, bringing in new lines (some lovely turned items), experimenting with adding bold colours, sparkling colours and gilding to really give you some unique pieces that stand out from the hum drum mass produced.
This week we have been working on wedding commissions with new super large stock that we picked up. S...

Sorry we haven't been around much this week. I've been full up with cold - the kind that gives you a really fuzzy head so you can't concentrate on anything. Mr LMT has been running around like a whirlwind (which isn't really unusual!) For those of you who don't know us, my husband finds it almost impossible to sit still and do nothing. Inevitably this ends up with him being really tired, which hit him last night.
He didn't stop last week with 6 days at work and then a wedding fair on the Sund...

Morning everyone. This post has nothing at all to do with Love Me Timber but just wanted to share an observation. It's been half term this week. As usual it has flown by. It's been lovely not having to rush around in the mornings to make sure the children get to school on time. I love just being able to potter around in the mornings. Every morning this week, both boys have been up and about no later than 8 o'clock. Today is Saturday. The boys have their swimming lessons on a Saturday morning....

Website Update

Posted by Alistair Rance on Thursday, February 21, 2013,
Today starts the beginning of our website overhaul. It should be exciting, but I really don't know what I am doing! I think we could be in for a few days trial and error while we work out what we would like.

Looking forward to a wedding fair on Sunday at the Alverbank Hotel in Gosport. It's a lovely venue, surrounded by a gorgeous park and opposite The Solent. If your around, make sure you pop in and say hello.

Sources of Inspiration

Posted by Alistair Rance on Tuesday, February 19, 2013,
Where does everyone get their sources of inspiration from? I browse through all the different facebook pages, etsy pages and websites found through Google and am amazed by all the wonderful ideas out there. Occasionally I see people moaning that their ideas have been copied, but surely there are only so many ideas that people can have. If you look back through history, surely ideas just keep recycling, like fashions.
Me and Mr. LMT had a rare night out by ourselves last night. We went to see a...

Wedding Countdowns

Posted by Alistair Rance on Monday, February 18, 2013,
I am sat writing this at my computer whilst physically shivering where I am so cold! As a couple we have 4 weddings to attend this year as guests. Both of our brothers are getting married and we each have a cousin getting wed. I love weddings and as the first wedding is not until the end of March I am hoping that the weather is going to warm up. I love the cold, but not the greyness that comes with winter, which is why the last few days have been gorgeous. The skies have been blue, the sun ha...
