Full Of Hand Made Things

Good evening everyone,

hasn't the weather been terrible, day after day of heavy rain, could make you feel quite miserable couldn't it?Well I've got a new shop to show you that's full of lovely hand made things from the students at the art college and it's called folio.

There were lots of lovely brooches,

and  pictures of lillies

and how gorgeous is this bag???

Just the right arm candy for a wedding or a garden party, hint hint your majesty!!!

Embroidered purses

and coat hangers with lovely linen capes on, far too nice to be shut away in the wardrobe,

 and lastly a wonderful Union Jack rag rug that must have taken hours and hours to make, well worth it though.

Oooops nearly  forgot this picture, not sure what they are, well I know they're arms and legs, any ideas???

Have I mentioned how clumsy I am? Today I knocked the handle off one of my favourite EB mugs

I'm ashamed to admit that's the sixth mug I've knocked the handle off Mr Lucey says I've got a touch like a rhinocerous!!

And here's yesterday's little accident,

I unplugged this "plug in" thing while I did a bit of hoovering, and put it on the windowsil and an hour later "this" had happened.....Mr Lucey was not amused as he's the one who'll have to paint it again!!!


I've been to see an exhibition of the most amazing quilts but I'll have to sort the pics out, right I'm off to bed as I have a good book to read , night all,

Plastic beakers for you methinks!!!

Nice shop loved the linen bags and purses. Maybe its the fault of the mugs and not you. Save all the bits and come along to the mosaic class Louise has normally october/november time. It's one of the courses I haven't yet done but I am going to put my name down for the next one.

Lovely shop, not sure about the arms & legs! I've done the same with the plug in on my PVC window, won't come off! :) x

What happened with your pluggy thing is something that you inevitably happen to me. Ha! :)

The best thing to do in the rain is to go shopping! Lovely items and such cute brooches! XxxX

It does make you wonder exactly what must be in those 'plug ins', for it to have done that to your window sill. I struggle to find nice smelling ones, so please do let me know which yours is (and I will try not to do any paint stripping with it)! Thanks x

Some wonderful items, it does the/my heart good to see such brilliant work.
Oh dear, your poor mug. I'm not too bad with breakages, in fact some of our mugs were bought in Habitat in the 70's! (not that they've been in use all the time)
