I want to show you a wonderful SC Cafe swap I received from the lovely Kirsty at Vintage and Cosy. The theme was Flutterby's anything fluttery and with wings. I adore butterflies so was a swap I thoroughly enjoyed participating in.
Beautifully packaged pretties, I adore the Sarah Smith butterfly cloths.
Ohooo lucky Mary Poppins.
A cute and beautifully handmade crocheted hanger with CK handmade beautiful bird, a gorgeous smelling Rose honey and Beeswax soap, wonderfully handmade from scummylicious butterfly and ladybird fabric drawstring bag, and of course the beautiful Sarah Smith cloths.
A gorgeous butterfly notebook and butterfly pen, Marigold french Marietta seeds, they attract butterflies and bees, a wonderful handmade bookmark, a beautiful children's book and pretty hand baked butterfly, owl and ladybird to make pretty necklaces. They are so cute, may be meant for Miss. Poppins, but what she doesn't know ;)
I mean a seven year old wouldn't want to play with these cute little pretties would they :)
Thank you so much Kirsty for a wonderfully thoughtful and inspirational swap, I love it all and it all shall be treasured.
Some of you have been asking a little about my shop makes, and how it is all going. Well after many false starts down to my confidence levels not being brilliant, I plucked up the courage and dropped some of my pretties off at the shop. I mean was a little daft really to be so insecure as I had taken my pretties in before to show the owners, they liked, and said they would be delighted to sell my pretties from their gorgeous store. So I took some cushions, Christmas lavender pillows, lavender hearts and embroidered linen pretties and seemingly shall be in the shop for sale.
Undecided yet if the shop thing is for me, I like to do the selling ;) I really enjoyed the Summer craft fair and eagerly await the Christmas one. Find talking about money a little uneasy, actually a lovely lady who works there came in and said many of the crafters who make for them go a little sweaty when prices are mentioned ;) I think we are happy with our arrangement and after much discussion prices were agreed.
Would you like to see where my pretties are, nestled in amongst the gorgeousness of the prettiest shop. Would you, yes, you have all been so encouraging of my makes, you at least deserve to see where they are being sold.
The children's showroom, where a couple of my patchwork pretties shall be for sale.
Ohooo my goodness could one of my cushions really be for sale sitting prettily on a beautiful shabby chic bench worth hundreds of pounds.
I think my little lavender pillows would look cute next to the pretty vintage ones.
My favorite Lavender pillow on Miss. Poppins' pretty bed.
And look where she is now, in amongst the posh stuff :)
Happy Making :)
