For she invented, medicinal compound, most efficacious in every way....

Hello!
I hope you have had a good weekend.
Just a few pics of work uploaded onto madebyhandonline and etsy today





 Upcycled fabrics, made into pieces, that will hopefully last another generation.

~0~
I also wanted to show you pictures of the Fair that the current husband, Billy Button Nose and I attended last Saturday.   thevintagebazaar at Frome, Somerset.   
 Thank you lizzie and clare and helpers, for an excellent day.  Here are a few pics, some better than others, to show you ...
some of the gorgeous wares for sale on the day. 




Apologies for not linking...I am not familiar with many of the stall holders. 










Daisy Baby (left) went to stay at her Granny and Grandads for the weekend and Billy Button Nose came with us and I am very proud to say that he was a well behaved boy.    
Another little doggy of mine, didn't sell on the day, so he came back home with us....I call him Rocky. 

 Thank you for stopping by. x

The Fair looks wonderful - so much lovely 'stuff'. Billy Button Nose and Daisy Baby are SO SWEET! Now you didn't use Billy Button Nose to lure people to your stall, did you??!!

I hope you didn't have to take too much back home, apart from the gorgeous Rocky.

And to think I thought Billy Button nose was your 'currant' (spelling wrong purposefully- geddit?) Worrying innit? I wouldn't mind but I'm sober. LLX

You have made such wonderful things, they really are so lovely. Having read your earlier post I do admire you and understand how hard it is to try and manage constant pain. You have to make the most of the good day's and rest on the bad one's. Take care, Abby x

Claire said...

You know they make them into lamp shades and sell them to designer yuppies here for over $700 each.
