As someone whom sells my own work, I try to repay the kindness, as often as possible, by buying from small companies or other people in the ‘handmade community’ and I always photograph things to show here in the blog to spread the word. I’ll confess I’ve slipped a bit recently and found a few photos in my iPhoto library waiting to be posted so here goes:
Heart and Bone needle felted skull brooch and hair pin by Lieutske Visser Design on Folksy. (F keeps trying to ‘borrow’ this, he is currently in a pirate/skull/scary monster phase).
Vintage Bee Hare Pin Brooch by Ruby Spirit Designs also Folksy.
Some special goodies I bought for myself at Christmas time, after everyone ignored my attempts to put them on my wish list. Both pieces are by Joanna Rutter and I wear the necklace most days, I also bought a pair of her ‘everyday’ studs (not shown here) which sit permanently in my ears.
Last and by no means least some great bibs from A Crafty Hen, another great Folksy seller!
I tell you, looking at these photos my poor Victorian work table would benefit from some TLC, perhaps an oiling and my sticking less pins in it 😉
