1984 - Orwell

Finally found a copy. A charity shop in Alderley Edge which had a sea of them as a window display.


Had a lovley venture into Cheshire which is still quite alien to me.

This is Knutsford. Very lovely shoppies etc.

Got these three plates - birdiess. mmmm bird obsession strikes again.

My shop

I have an etsy.

I have opened for business.
Handmade, craft and vintage as I'm a bit of a magpie/hoarder. Currently getting updated daily.

The cards combine recycled materials and my own illustration.
I shall update on any other ventures.

Check Etsy for lovely artist's goodies. Really nice to see so much handmade, and so much design going on as well.

I am currently screen print mad and there's lots of that going on -really individual work.
Love it.

Knitted liquorice allsorts, embroidered house and boxed set of Ravenshead beer mugs are just are few about to go up on my new etsy shop this week :)

flower market

what lovely stalls, and really reasonable pricing on Columbia Road in London. The flowers alone can wow never mind the wonderful boutiques filled with goodies.

best book ever


July update

I have finally regained spare time for CRAFT. So relaxing. Made cards and produced framed prints, but I've also started printing which I will soon share. These are DIY cake-stands inspired by Prima magazine. I liked one so much I decided not to sell it in the end. Anyway recommend this old chestnut. Bargain and recycles odd plates!!

This was my stall from saturday's Saltaire fair. Thoroughly enjoyed myself and everybody's very pretty things - this Saturday - TODMORDEN!
