When I was last in London, I visited Thornback & Peel's holiday "pop-up" shop at Pentreath & Hall and met Abbie, who manages their warehouse and helps screenprint some of the beautiful items by hand. It was so fun to put a face with a name, and I've been eager to get to know Delia Peel and Juliette Thornback because their story is an inspiration to me. They have followed their creative interests and are living the dream in London!
Briton Home is all about sharing stories of people and places in Great Britain that we love and are inspired by. I recently asked Delia a few questions to get to know her better and share with you. Here's what she had to say...
I know you started very small, how many people work with you now?
"We have a small team of 5"

Welcome to September. The children have started school and us parents can breathe again, at least until the afternoon, when activities and homework fill the hours with hurry once more.
Amidst the many emails from this year’s teachers and coaches, I still receive notices from the school our children attended in London several years ago. I could un-subscribe, but I secretly cherish this little ongoing window into life there! Today I indulged and opened the St. Barnabas & St. Philip's emails, checked the website, and read the upcoming events from our church in London...

Dawn Landes is a singer-songwriter based in Nashville, TN who plays “Americana” rock/folk/country and recently released her fifth album, Meet Me at the River, and an EP, My Tiny Twilight, inspired by becoming a mother. While she lives in the Country Music capital of the world, she recently returned from a European tour spanning three countries. I am lucky to call Dawn my sister-in-law, and on her most recent trip to the UK, she even went on a buying mission for Briton Home! Check out these amazing silver teaspoons- chosen with care by Dawn in Exeter during an outing between shows.
When she got home, Dawn was generous to let me interview her about her experience in Britain, as she has gotten to know England, Scotland and Wales over the last fifteen years through the lens of a musician. She has toured in the UK over twenty times, on her own and with other performers, including Sufjan Stevens, Hem, and most recently, Nick Lowe. From Cardiff to Dorset, Glasglow to London, Dawn has met other musicians and performed in venues large and small, iconic and idyllic. She has had a window into a side of British culture many of us never see.
