Time on my hands

Ahh, what a long last couple of months... crazy sewing and getting ready for the festive rush! And now I am home with time on my hands - time for dusting the trinket shelves, which had been very much over due. In order of height -

top three shelves

two down

six and seven

bottom eight

I just adore their rickety splendor. We were given them by a fellow called Dick from freecycle.. His father ( who designed the Aeroplane safety shoot) made them in the 1930s, and they'd since been traveling here there and everywhere, when Dick moved to Camberwell they didn't fit in his new home and so he kindly offered them up! They are now one of my favourite pieces.

Anchors have always inspired me... I'm very much drawn to them. I have a urge to sew more in the next coming months. A perfect love token for valentines.

A photo a day keeps the mind at play... for yesterday

A vomit of colour

Getting ready for stalls is always so darn hard... I have so many ideas that I love to sew up. However putting it all together looks like someone ate all my work and threw it all up on a table! And theres still more to put on the table...goodness me.

Fawn issues

I'm having fawn issues... these little lovelies take over a day to sew up, and thats just the little ones in felt! Let along any of the other sizes I do or the leather ones. Taking home just £35.00 for one of the wee felt ones isn't enough for a daily wage... with that and the fact I don't charge for materials yet,  I am going to have to charge just that little bit more. £42.00... not that much more, I'm still cheap for a days wage, but it'll make me that little bit more happier. I do so very much hope you'll understand.

A photo a day keeps the mind at play

in a world of my own

More trinkets... the naked lady used to belong to my grandmother who kept it in a locked glass cabinet, I remember every time we popped up to visit her I would gaze at it happily for hours. Her features are just wonderful.

Home Sweet Home

I absolutely love trinkets... and can't help filling my home with them. This is one of my favourites, a 1930s glass cottage perfume bottle. What a marvellous novelty.

A photo a day keeps the mind at play

 I'm utterly terrible at updating this blog... so have decided to update at least one photo a day. 

                                                               Me and Mr Moon

This little lady lives on one of the shelves in the workroom
                                                   She keeps all the needlecraft books in shape.

Rita Mae

                                        My latest lady

                             Rita Mae stands at 21 inches in height 
              Has a light wire frame body to give some structure & bend
  A rayon 1930s hanky makes up her blouse with hidden poppers down the front. Her jeans were made out of a pair of jeans kindly donated by my other half' & also have hidden poppers down the back seam. Red wool, hessian and leather make up her wedges...and a red felt handbag completes her look.

                            Of course no outfit is complete without underwear...
