My sheddy extension.

Down the allotment again, have finished of the varanda it's definatley green, I have used just recycled materials. It's not glamorous in any way. It's more shabby shack, but i love it, my favourite place to be.

Someone fell asleep in the shed.

Making hats for little people and big.

I'm making my hats for little people now as well as big. I sell the hats in the lovely Susie Cole shop in Lyme Regis, Dorset.

Finished doll

This doll I've called Mrs Sylvia Sparrow, bit of a fiddly one to make, but I love her all the same. Where is Sylvia going? To market me thinks.

A girly night in with Pearl

If Pearl and I happened on a girly night on our own, we may well pick from these DVDS.

New book Of Vintage Flowers

This book is called 'Vintage Flowers' by Vic Brotherson . It is gorgeous and reminds me of one of my favourite blogs 'Sarah Jane Down the Lane'. The informal flower arranging is a visual feast. Its £25, but if you are lucky and canny it's £4.99 in The Works at the moment.

Letting go of the old to make way for new finds.

This is my Autumn/winter coat and bag I've loved for many a cold season, but now fancy a change. So I've just mastered putting it on Ebay making way for a new one to appear. The coat is lovely muted heather colours and 100% welsh wool. Ive listed them for 5 days if anyone's interested.

Beech Nut Broach

Pearl and I have been collecting beech nut cases, to make these broaches like the ones made in the 1940s, I've seen. Use nail polish as paint and floristry wire and tape to hold them together. Add a little wool if you like, it helps when sliding a saftey pin on the back. see gals we can be green and glamourous!
Have fun making and wearing them . Ps love to see a photo of yours.
