Needlecase, sold, screen printed with my bird drawing and Liberty Lawned and embroidered to within an inch of it's life. A drawstring Dorothy Bag made from the most exquisite French vintage linen...even has a little hand darned area. Embellished with a fine piece of vintage French embroidery, finished with a stonkingly gorgeous and very old mother of pearl button.
Then onto a little envelope...lovingly embellished.
Millie Mouse brooch, wearing her finest pinny.
And last but not least for today's gratuitious sales promotion .... a coin purse, sold, which fits perfectly into the hand, just right for one's pennies and perhaps a lippy.
Firstly there will be the second LOVE Ludlow's Own Vintage Event. Ludlow, Shropshire. This is such a great Fair, specialising in textiles, clothing and makers.
Then there is vintageandhandmade Textile Fair. Looking forward very much to this new event that Jayne and Michele have worked so hard to establish.
If you check out their blog Jayne and Michele have raised an issue and I hope you don't mind me having a small rant here.... there are some fabulous Fairs springing up all over the UK. Thanks to Jayne and Michele's influence. This is great for all who appreciate the opportunity to sell and buy handmade and vintage. But pleeease....if you are going to organise one of these Fairs in your locality, have the decency to come up with an original name and not call your fair 'Vintage and Handmade'.....some original thinking may be required at some point!
Thank you so much to everyone who have left a comments. I am so happy to receive such lovely, kind words.
Thanks for stopping by. x
