Photo Barrage

This morning I uploaded all the pictures from my camera to my laptop so without further ado here is an explanation of the photo barrage before you…. 1&2. This charming little madam is my friends daughter, SJ, who came to visit & I promised you pics here… 3. one of my Royal mugs from my burgeoning Royal mug collection…. 4,5,6&7. awesome vintage book that I am listing on Dawanda. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful & go from the Egyptian age right through to the 1970’s. 8. I dug out all my old Brownies &Girl Guides badges & have been sewing them onto this tee… 9.& also as part of the January ‘Turning Japanese’ theme over at Finki‘s I’ve also got this WIP on the go… I just need to finish her hair!

Sunday Sweetness

So… for this weeks dose of Sunday Sweetness I bring you… 1) Gorgeous crocheted whale purse available here … 2) Beautiful mama & baby Matroyshkas… (unfortunately I have no idea where i got this pic from.. if these beauties are yours please let me know so I can give you credit!)… 3) vintage owl earring hangar discovered on etsy a while back… 4) raindrop magnet by me… 5) Incredibly cute cuckoo clock necklace.. I think this is an Elsie design… 6) Awesome painting by Coulson Macleod …                                                                                                                   It’s been a very very busy week this week… we’re short staffed at work so have been shattered! I also set up a DaWanda shop this week.. if you click on the DaWanda badge on the left of this blog it’ll take you there… it’s still a work-in-progress! Any free time I’ve had has been spent making & photographing so that I can put a few more items in.                                                                                                                                    Last night I had a night off from everything & went to the pub with Mr J & then came home & had an incredibly yummy curry… Chicken Passanda, Lemon rice & Peshwari naan… my favourite! I was tucked up in bed by 11pm xoxox

2009 Craftiness Part 2

I’m not feeling too well today… it’s my day off & I’m in bed in my pj’s feeling vaguely flu-ey hoping that I’m not going to come down with anything! So… since I have zero energy I thoght I’d post a few more pics of some more bits I made last year… 1) Leaf Brooch: needle felting & seed beed embroidery… 2) Flower Brooch: needle felting (sold to the lovely Alex!)… 3) Sunburst necklace: carnelian & sunstone pieces… 4) Coral Necklace: twisted yarn & silk strands embellished with handcut felt shapes & upcycled pink shells & 5) Seashells Brooch: needle felting embellished with seed beads & upcycled shells. The next lot of pics are Dawanda gems…                                                                                    Currently I don’t have an online shop… I stopped selling on etsy last summer because my ‘day’ job is far too time consuming. I am thinking about opening another shop though this year & to this end have just signed up with Dawanda. They have some fantastic stuff on there, some real talent, maybe I’ll just stick to shopping!!! Without further ado… 1) Owl tights available miirazukale… 2) doll+house available gypsyandtwink 3) cute birdcages pendants from moumou & 4) this gorgoeus top from chivato. If you haven’t been to Dawanda you should definitely check it out… happy window shopping! xoxox
