Goodbye and Thank You!

The time has come to say goodbye to my little blog. I'd just like to say thank you to each and everyone of you who has passed through here and shared your friendship. Its been a part of me for the past three years, but now I think its time for a new change and a new focus.

I won't be gone for good, you can always catch up with me on my facebook page.

I'll leave you with the Doors and bid you adieu, Tam x

Treasured Finds: Gorgeous French Fans

I promised you some treasures last week, so I hope I don't disappoint.

My beautiful french fans arrived this week. They are so delicate and not in the best condition and I just love them. They are hand painted on very fine mesh and sit atop gorgeous carved wooden handles.

To keep them out of the way and to prevent more damage, I looped a stitch over the wooden handles onto an open frame that I has earlier backed with an old coffee sack. I am sure they would look beautiful if professionally framed and behind glass, but I am happy with this setup for the moment. They look right at home with my other french pieces, don't you think?

Have you found any treasures lately?

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the week whatever you have planned. Tam x

September Makers Market

It was a great day at the Mini Makers Market hosted by Little Finch, and a few new pieces have found loving homes. It was nice to get some feedback on the new pieces. I also recognise that I now need to add a little price sticker to each piece to prevent confusion when I leave my little helpers in charge.

The Next Braidwood Maker's Market is only a month away and I am sharing my table with Little Miss who will be selling her original artwork, posters, cards and bookmarks - as well as her jewellery pieces that she made earlier.

She is going from strength to strength in her art, so I hope she does well. Here is a little collage of a few pieces she has been working on. As you can see her artwork is influenced by the Powerpuff Girls and Adventure Time and she has a new series of cute fox designs.

Its a glorious day today. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and next week I promise to be back with some more interesting treasured finds xx
