Tackling the weeds and tending the flowerbeds; what isolation activities have you been up to recently?
Why not send a photograph to firstname.lastname@example.org for your chance to WIN one of our Photo Frames...
Need some photo inspiration? Why not capture something amusing, unusual or just gloriously normal that you have been doing during isolation?
Walks in the park, wanderings with your pet…. maybe a shot showing off the beautiful things you have done to your garden?
I may frame this photo of my mother weeding my garden and send it to my brother (who wishes Mum was weeding HIS garden).
Or the picture of my husband posing rather self-consciously in front of some gloriously blooming rhododendrons!
If I was sending a frame to myself, I would choose a photograph of my 16 year old dog Xanda (who we rescued when we used to live in Cape Town) who seems to be embracing his slothful life in isolation...
The choices are limitless wherever you may be, but the result is the same; a wonderful memory captured in an equally wonderful frame.
So let your imagination roll, email us your photo at email@example.com and we will print the winning photo in one of our beautiful frames and send it to your family, a friend or directly to you.
We look forward to receiving your photographs.

All Five brands define both themselves and their clientele as connoisseurs of luxury living and ambassadors of country style.
The Beretta Gallery refine their philosophy and strategy, whilst maintaining intact the style that is signature of the Beretta brand. They recreate the spirit of “outdoor life” whilst offering a variety of upscale products that help consumers get more out of life.
Dubarry is named after the famous French courtesan Madame du Barry a lady of enticing beauty in the French court. The business was fortunate to be able to draw on a local population of hard-working craftsmen and women, and Dubarry soon developed a reputation for excellent workmanship and quality.
Guinea wanted an iconic name that meant luxury, quality and tradition – the finest things in life. Inspiration for a brand name came when they stumbled across a 1775 guinea coin in a back drawer. For 400 years, the guinea, a solid gold coin was used in Britain to buy only the most luxurious of items and it soon became the currency of the wealthy and quite literally a mark of gold standard quality – a perfect representation of this company.
The Oxton Liqueur Company - uses traditional methods to make the finest fruit liqueurs. They can offer you a stunning collection of award-winning liqueurs including the ‘World’s Best Rhubarb Gin’. Each bottle can be personalised with your own message or branding. Beautifully packaged and delicious they are perfect on their own or added to Champagne.

Why the elephant? Aside from reminding many of us of our fathers (loyal, majestic, with a tendency to have large appetites and large ears!), elephants typify adventure, leisure and exotic locations. All of which Wingfield Digby, Atlas & I and Elephant Gin wholeheartedly endorse.
Atlas & I, founded by Sophie Kirkpatrick and run entirely from her West London showroom, is a unique personalised gift and homeware brand. The company is widely acclaimed for its bespoke service: Sophie prints silhouettes – be they sports, buildings, animals or people – onto carefully sourced vintage maps showcasing anywhere from Ascot to the Alps, Kenya to Cornwall. She has recently expanded the accessories range to include the likes of phone cases, cushions, keyrings and sketchbooks - as praised by the likes of Country & Town House, Shooting Times and House Beautiful.
The idea for Elephant Gin sprung from nostalgia over so-called ‘sundowner’ drinks after a day out in the South African bush. It is now an award-winning, handcrafted premium spirit, distilled notably using rare African ingredients never before used in gin-making - including Devil’s Claw, Lion’s Tail and Baobab. The result is a complex but strikingly smooth serve which can be enjoyed both straight and in a cocktail. The team are passionate about African wildlife – 15% of all proceeds support Big Life Foundation’s Ranger Club and Space For Elephants Foundation.
The competition closes at midnight, Sunday 11th June.
The winner will be chosen and notified on Monday 12th June to arrange delivery.

Hicks and Brown
First up, the beautiful Hicks and Brown dark brown wool felt Fedora hat with pheasant feather wrap-around (RRP: £85). Like us, the Hicks and Brown founders (sisters Alice and Rosie) are passionate about real feathers and have crafted both natural and bright feathers into their water resistant fedoras to create headwear that is both pretty and practical. Based in Suffolk, Alice and Rosie create clothing and fashion accessories infused with country style - and do so to much acclaim. Aside from a portfolio of celebrity clientele, they won ‘Best Dressed Trade Stand’ at the 2016 Royal Windsor Show.
The lucky winner will also receive a 50cl bottle of Sipsmith Sloe Gin 2015. Whether swirled into a crisp glass of Champagne or paired with a good dessert, this velvety spirit is perfect for mother/daughter sharing! Sipsmith pick all their sloe berries in the autumn before leaving them to rest with their award-winning London Dry Gin, resulting in a tantalisingly fruity serve. Don’t take our word for it, Sunday Times Style say “We thought Sipsmith couldn’t top its British-brewed gin, but this Sloe version is even better.”
Pink City Pashmina
Next up – and on a similarly cerise note - Pink City Pashmina has kindly provided a completely unique, pure Indian silk pashmina. Straight from The Pink City itself, Jaipur in India, Pink City Pashmina scarves are handwoven using wooden loom techniques that have existed for centuries. The result? Pashminas that are as steeped in colour and character as the country from which they’re from. Founder William Mitchell works closely with his friends in India to ensure that these exquisite creations are made in the most sustainable and ethical manner possible.
Last, but by no means least, this Mother’s Day Prize will include one of our signature Cock Pheasant photo frames (RRP: £70). It even matches the Hicks & Brown fedora!
