just a few images from the Cotswold Vintage Fair I attended yesterday.
A really lovely event. Goodness there were so many things beautiful things to buy.
I have decided to change my stand from this style.
Very useful having the shelves for my purses, but I can't see a thing.
I have to stand in the middle gap and look out over horsey!
The old legs won't stand for a whole day, so when I perch, I disappear and that's no good.
So I thought I would perhaps buy a few smallish suitcases and use those as a props. Oh I don't know, it's so hard to showcase everything properly and still be visable and able to have a conversation with friends and customers.
Practicality and a pleasant looking stand ain't easy :)
I have always enjoyed working on old envelopes. I have been embellishing them now for twelve years or so.
I love everything about them...the old paper, the postage stamps, post marks, hand writing etc. etc.
I have recently started to hand paint birds, Black birds...
I now apply the finished article to reclaimed wooden blocks, to stand or hang.
I really like the chunky blocks ...
with their knots and blemishes...
I think they compliment what I do.
All these pieces are in my madebyhandonline shop.
Just popped this hand painted/stitched brooch into Etsy
and this Kitty needlecase too.
Happy Bank Holiday all you lovely Brits.
Thanks for stopping by. x
