Pouches pouches

In December I made a lot of pouches! I used a mix of antique fabrics and trims along with many Tilda fabrics and handmade buttons! Oh and of course hand stamped images! I still have a couple left which I will putting in my shop.

Diaries 2016

Here are some lovely diaries for 2016 I made for my market in San marino. I had so much fun making clay buttons and using some of my lovely antique linens and trims combined with gorgeous Tilda fabrics. I have a couple left which i will slowly put in my shop. I will probably keep one as I don't have a 2016 diary yet. They are great because you can remove the cover, wash it and reuse it each year.

Merry Christmas

I know I'm a little late but MERRY CHISTMAS to all! I've been working everyday at my Christmas market hence my tardiness!!!
It's been a wonderful experience, so much fun and I've met some wonderful people. It doesn't finish until the 6th January so there's a lot of work still to be done.

One wonderful creative person I've met is Maura of 'La Piuma Blu' (the Blue Feather), you can visit her Facebook page here. She makes beautiful items decorations and wall hangings with fil de fer. They are very pretty, delicate and whimsical and she will customise them for you with whatever theme, fairy tale, colours, names and so on. Maura also speaks a little English so had no problem with comunicating!

Here are a few goodies I purchased for myself, then I had to buy some more as gifts as I couldn't resist!

Christmas market San Marino

This weekend was the first of several at the 'Natale delle Meraviglie' in San Marino. It was a beautiful sunny weekend but very, very cold! We had characteristic wooden houses in which to display our products. This is the view down the street

The amazing view over the Valle Marecchia towards San Leo, and yes that's snow you can see!
Putting together my stall was not an easy feat! I was in such a state of confusion it took me from 8am-12 pm to finally feel like I was in order! Thanks goodness my 10 year old daughter was there with me to help, advise and tell me off when panicking!!!

Here is my stall finally organised, Sunday I switched things up a little! I think I was able to improve my display. When you see all your goods on display like this you realise just how much work you've done then the exhaustion sets in!

At the end of the day, Sunday we had a spectacular sunset to end off a fun and successful weekend! Now it's back to woking on orders and restocking for the next weekends in San Marino. I'll be there 12-13 Dec, 19-20 Dec, 24-25-26-27 Dec, 31st Dec and then 1st Jan- 6th Jan.

I Love Christmas in Sydney

 Beautiful colourful decorations at a gorgeous shop called Little Paper Lane in Mona Vale Sydney.

 Love Santa's area at Westfield Bondi Junction in Sydney. They were setting it up this week. A woodland theme... love! These pictures are for you Lulu.

 Charity Christmas cards... such cute designs.

Our Christmas mantle.... a bunch of Christmas drawings on cardboard and cut out. Inspired by a picture I found on Pinterest.
