New Wreaths

Here are a couple of new wreaths I made yesterday. I'm really chuffed with both and I really want to keep them, but i mustn't keep everything! I had an extremely busy week last week for online sales on all of my shops and I'm now running around like a headless chicken getting stock ready for my fairs as well as the brick and mortar shops that stock my goods.
I am 'supposed' to be learning the highway code at the moment as I am almost ready for my driving test. Why did I not learn it and pass it in the summer when I was a little less busy?!

I have also been meaning to photograph and blog my bargain duffel coat that I picked up in a charity shop in Hebden Bridge last week but I haven't got around to it. It was a mega bargain of £6.50! and in perfect condition :) That's at least £60 saved.

Ahh a day off and treasures!

I had a day off from working on Thursday. I have been working my bum off lately and so me, my Mum and my Grandma all took a trip to one of our local antique centers. I went with the intention of getting my sisters 21st present, not looking for myself. But I did bring home all of these...

 A lovely 70s salt container at £4
 And a matching biscuit jar £8. All without a chip or mark! With the rubber seals all in working order. They did have a tea and a sugar pot too, but without the coffee it wouldn't of been worth it. I literally would of made it my quest in life to find that matching coffee pot and it most certainly would of driven me insane!
And a GINORMOUS rug at the bargain price of £55! We have been looking for a big rug for a while and this is perfect. Yippee happy days x

Lincolnshire Exhibition



This one is by far my favorite and I'm feeling reluctant to send it off the the gallery. But i must, i really cannot keep all my work!






So these dolls will be sent away to Lincolnshire 20-21 visual arts centre and will be taking part in the handmade 2010 exhibition which is a selling exhibition so hopefully they will all have new homes for Christmas. I will also be sending my owls, rag dolls, brooches and lavender pillows. More photos to come later this week. I will be listing more Russian dolls, rag dolls and owls on my SewRealicoul shops in the next coming weeks.
