Thank you!

Thank you to all who visited my stand at the Vintage & Handmade Fair in Chipping Sodbury on Saturday. It was my best one of the year, so a fabulous end to the season! xx 
Record numbers came along, as the fair coincided with the town's Victorian Christmas Event...Hope it does again next year! Thanks to Michele and Jayne for all their hard work. 
I shall now be listing some of my handmade Christmas decorations in my on-line shop over the next week - I hope that you will enjoy taking a look when you have time. 
Miss Winter Mist has already flown in and is looking for a home for Christmas.

Cherubic Cushions

Four pretty little brooch pillows for the Vintage & Handmade Fair next weekend. 
Created from antique French fabrics and each has a vintage brooch attached. 



A sweet gift idea for the romantically inclined! 

I've also made this collection of Christmas decorations from vintage tart tins. 
Beautiful vintage glass beads hang from the bottom for added sparkle.

Gentle Starglitter - Fairy Queen of the Sky

A favourite illustration of mine from one of my childhood books is The Queen of the Sky, by Helen Jacobs, from The Land of Happy Hours - She has inspired my latest OOAK fairy doll and I have created Miss Gentle Starglitter.

She is beautifully sparkly and dressed in rich colours fit for the Queen of the Sky.



She is available to buy from my on-line shop
