Ok so I wanted to join in the crockery showing. I store my needles in my midwinter coffee pot bought from ebay. Used once as a teapot and the tea stained the crazing on it so it was demoted to a needle holder. Also my Petra Boase mug that I dearnt use for fear of breaking.

More mid winter the top of the teapot and I have 6 of these cups and saucers but they are far to small to use. I used to have dinner plates but could never find any bowls to match. After many years of using a mismatching dinner service I have replaced them with a Habitat one. We bought it last Christmas with vouchers we asked for. 
I love these, bought at a car boot for not very much. The stall holder only had these two and  my birthday is in June and the mans (Dan) is in November. They had to be purchased.
Oh and how cute are these? There are four children in our family all with unusual names - Leon, Jordan, Sharna and Bonita. Growing up you couldn't get anything with your name on, until my mum found someone making these. I was so chuffed when I was given these recently.
Well thats enough crockery for one day. Hope you have enjoyed mine and their stories.

Buttons finally!

Finally my new buttons have arrived. I have been waiting patiently for these, so have a few customers - oooppps! They will be in the my shop soon. I am still missing the black and white, but I told my supplier to just include them in my next order. I think they look fab here on Isaac's nuirsery painting.
All ready to go!

Out with the old overlocker....

and in with the new!
I haven't even had it out of the box yet, just haven't had the time what with bunting and doll orders. I have never managed to get the old one working properly. I will let you know how I get on soon. Today was a good day as I have managed to find dresses for fancy dress nights at the pub. They are being washed as I write and I will give you a peek soon.

Hunting for Bunting!

Ok so it been a while. I choose today to write as my bunting has been featured in the Sunday Times, Style magazine!  This is the face I pulled when I saw it.

I was told it might be in but there was no guarantee. I am so excited and chuffed (I was the photographer too).

All thats left to say is a big "THANK YOU" to Alison at for putting me forward.

I promise not to leave it so long next time. xx
