Vintage Retro Holdall ..

size 8 x 5.5 "

Made from a thick wool cloth , the pic shows it more

blue when it`s a more teal colour !! Nevermind huh ?

Then i cut out a circle from the wool cloth and sewed a flower piece

from an old vintage tablecloth that was too worn in places

to reuse myself .. sort of like reverse applique ;o)

And added 2 of my own felted leaves hand stitched ..

And lined with a cotton stripe material ..

Hopefully i will have more time tomorrow
to list this for purchase along with a few other items !
Thanks for popping by ;o)


" Pilgrim`s Nest "
Wear then store your art ...
A new idea i had to store part of a piece of
artwork , which i don`t think i`ve seen before ..
I could be wrong ;o)
For the " house " part .. I used a cardboard inner
left over from parcel tape !! I couldn`t throw it as it was
a thick piece of card and i thought it would
come in handy .. one day ..
I lined the inner with vintage wallpaper then cut a circle
of card for the back and stuck vintage ledger paper on .
The size is 3 " diameter and 2" deep .

Glued thick paper on the outside and painted the rim of
the short parcel tape tube a white .
I hand crocheted a nest in chunky wool, then made a wire one to fit inside
with 3 vintage beads as eggs .Then sewed a brooch pin on on the back ,
so it can be worn then housed when it`s not being worn ;o)
Nest brooch size is 1.75 " diameter

I put some seam binding on the top , to hang it ,
but it didn`t sit right on a wall ..
So i came up with it`s own stand !!
A small jewellery box bottom lid , then sewed 2 small twigs
so the decorated roll tape wouldn`t roll off !
Pretty good idea , if i say so myself !! ;o)
Stand size is 3 x 2.5 "

Inside close up ..
Vintage text , bleached twig piece , faux moss , vintage flowers

Many thanks for the well wishes for my FIL
at the moment things are going good ;o)
And any interest in the above piece to purchase it ,
please get in touch , but i will try soon to list it ..
I`m just short of time right now
Thanks for popping by ;o)


" 3 Poppies "
canvas size 5 x 10 "
I`ve had this done for a few weeks
but with our FIL having health problems
and another stroke a few days ago , time is
spent more on him , as he now refuses to go
into hospital now ! So it is a very trying time
for us all ..
Anyway , i thought i`d better show my face ,
so to speak on here ;o)

The textured background is DIY filler ! ;o)
Much cheaper than textured paste and easy to use too
painted with acrylics , 3 dried poppies that i grew in my
garden last year , a small bark piece from a day out
that i aquired ;o) which is stuck with the filler onto the canvas.

Inside the bark piece is florists foam to place the dried poppies in
but covered with dried white moss type stuff ;o) Not sure what it`s called !!

Green Faux moss , skeletal leaf and 2 partial dried acorns
I`m still not 100% sure on the colours of it
though ;o)
Thanks for popping by ;o)
