Tessie Design Company is named in honour of
Toressa Maud Rollston
Tessie was Judy's mother and my Nanna-
and she was an awesome chick.
Mum and I, as Tessie Design Company are embracing our inner Tessie. She taught us that a woman can be strong and silly, resilient and vulnerable, wise and cheeky.
If you were feeling down, Nanna would just say: "Put a bit of lippy on, love." To me, that always meant, "Put your best face forward and just get on with it!"
My lovely Dad used to refer to Nanna as "Tesso"...
So, Rock on Tesso, I hope you don't mind us pinching your name!
i know she would be proud.....
