Well for me in 2008, so much to do, so little light! Hey, I did moan after all, well that makes a change!!!
This week I have been mostly papier mache...ing! Like a demon. I thought that my items for sale at the flair Designer/Maker Fair, Saturday 6th December, would look so much better presented in boxes covered in old paper. An awful amount of work but worth it I think. Rather than the items all loose on the table, they can now be contained.
I have also made these papier mache brooches. Remarkably robust and I have really enjoyed making them.... rubbish photos, but I think you can get the idea.
Change of subject.......I found this little cup and saucer in a charity shop in the week, I wanted to show you. The make is Arabia, Made in Finland. I adore it, I think it may be 1960's, not sure but the illustrations are so inspiring.
And finally, here is my very expensive 1940's coat that I purchased from the Vintage Clothes Shop at Bridgnorth last week. I impulsively rang up when I got home and said I would have it but then had an attack of the guilts all week and really spoilt the joy of finding such a wonderful coat. Anyway, as gigibird mentioned in one of her blogs, something in, something out, so I will just have to flog a few things off on Ebay, if I can!
