Hello my deer's
(I found this little fella in Sweden back in September isn't he sweet?
Hope you have all had a fulfilling week?
Mine has been a busy one with a capital B and this weekend is jam packed with people to see, places to go and new things to be learnt. I just have been itching to blog again despite nothing particularly interesting going on. I must be addicted! Yes, that's what my family think. Soon I will be joining "Bloggers Anonymous" :0)
We eventually got around to having our lovely e-bay 1920's doors hung and I must say we are as pleased as punch with them. I just can't believe how we put up with ugly, characterless 1960's doors for 9 years. All good things in time is what I say. Your home is always a working project I think.
I have had these pretty irises to watch coming into full bloom from Andy to cheer me up on the grey days.
I was fortunate enough to find these two lovelies in a junk shop to put in Alice's stocking. I love old printer's blocks and keys are an absolute favourite of mine. I seem to give Alice a key most years, not sure why, I just do. Maybe it's me giving her the key to a new year in her sweet life?
I scrambled up into the attic to finish off a couple of A line skirts I have been making with this Amy Butler pattern I bought in the summer.
I've made these for a friend of mine who wants to sell them in her retro/vintage clothes shop. Did you recognise any of these prints? Maybe you slept on the left hand one and pulled the curtains of the right hand one :0)
The orange paisley sheet was brand new found at a car boot sale last year I promise, I don't think I would make clothes from used sheets, quilts only.
The ric rac is old too, I love that burnt orange colour.
I think it will be funny if I see someone walking around in these! I did once see a lady wearing one of my vintage button clips that i made and that made me smile.
Other than that it's soon becoming the season to be jolly and I've been playing with some lovely bright red cotton making something weird and wonderful for Alice's after school art teacher. If it turns out how I expect / hope, then I'll show you this fun concept.
Even Dolores (my hand made chicken) is getting into the swing of things!
Happy days to one and all xox See you all soon xox
