dust-be-gone

I actually did some tidying up around here recently (!!!!) and the Sara Lee Dust (layer upon layer upon layer) inspired me to make the commitment to myself that there will be no new containers come into this house EVER again that don’t have lids!
In the spirit of my new-found obsession with dust-prevention, today I made myself a new pincushion.
No more dusty pins and, when the lid is on, it even looks cute :)

Let the Yummy-ness Commence!

We’ve been waiting…you’ve been waiting…but at last! Here we are!!
The new shop is open and we’re cookin’ with gas!

For years we have been gathering together beautiful vintage trims and buttons, precious old fabrics and mountains of other yummies that we have now whirled together into lovely little projects for you to make. The necessary bits and pieces for our favourite projects are put to one side as we Create and when we are done, we gather them up and make Limited Edition Kits for you. There may be as few as two kits available or as many as twenty – it all depends on how many yards of that handmade silk lace we have or how many of those gorgeous lolly pink glass buttons there were in the jar!

If you prefer to design your own projects, we also have small quantities of vintage supplies to share with you and some of the delicious new supplies that catch our eye from time to time. We’ve made a start…

…and over the coming weeks we will by adding more and more yummy stuff to the shop.
