Happy Mother's Day from Team Tatty

Happy Mother's Day from Team Tatty

Charlotte Prichard, 27 March 2014

Happy Mother's Day! Today, we're taking time out to celebrate the ladies who made us who we are today. Join us as we meet the Team Tatty mums... Lusea says, "I'm not sure what I can say about my mum. She's really cool - she is my idol.  She's crazy, colourful, beautiful and amazing.  She taught me how to make jewellery and used to own a gallery before I was born, so I've been around jewellery, beads and making my whole life. I could tell you about the time she kicked a hedgehog (by accident), or about the time she ran over two pigeons (by accident) or the time she fell off the back of a toboggan and flashed everyone her underwear, or how she screams, jumps and shouts at the characters in the cinema, or how she tries to set me up with anyone that says hi to me, or when we drove back from Ikea with shelving stuck out the sunroof in the pouring rain and got drenched but laughed the whole way home! All in all its fair to say she is pretty cool, and always supports me in whatever I do. Her tag line is 'I'm a terrible mother'! She isn't a traditional mum and I love her for it, so thanks Muma!" Web queen Zoe couldn't resist revealing her mum's amazing sweater to the world... "This is my mum, affectionally referred to as The Jude, JuJu, Moo or Mummy Fay. Along the years she's kindly passed on to me all her worst traits; procrastination, having a conversation that involves at least 3 different stories at once and as this photo attests, terrible taste in jumpers. In spite of all our shared flaws, I love her very much and although I won't see her this Mother's Day she'll be getting a cheeky card with a mildly offensive message, and if she's been very good she might even get a Forget-Me-Not Flower Necklace." Marketing Manager Brenna shared this snap of her fashion forward Mum and herself on a beach outing. Just look at that raincoat and home made bobble hat! Production Assistant Caroline shared this snap of her stylish mum: "All I can say is: she's the best!" Our Manchester Store Supervisor Emma transported us back to the 1990s with this adorable photo of her grandma, twin and older brother. Who could this little angel be? It's only our Creative Director Harriet's mum! You can read all about Ann and her adventures as a couture dress maker in this very special blog.

Hanni is not only our Brick Lane store star, she's a stylist too. It looks like fashion runs in the family in this ultra-hip photo of her mama enjoying a shopping day in Brighton. Thank you for sharing your photos, Team Tatty! We hope you all have a wonderful day with your favourite lady. Don't forget to tell us all about your amazing mum in the comments below, too!
