Loving my new little shop

this is the front door to my little shop that i share with Lilly Cottage

Well i have been so busy and really bad at updating this blog, I have had my little shop open now for over a month and the time has gone so quickly.  I am having so much fun and it was just what I needed to have my shop open again. I thought I would share some photos of the shop with you.

this is looking in from my door. I will have to take some more photos as this has already changed. I like to change things often.

I also have some beautiful fabric I have all of the above and more.
it's a little shop with lots of stuff!

here are the tags you will find at the shop, I have a lot of others to including numbers and letter

cotton bobbins with and without cotton on them
I am waiting on a new order of cotton bobbins I should have them in the new year.

these beautiful lavender cornets. with handmade flower.

I also have this beautiful paris style handbag door stop.

I hope you have enjoyed looking around my little shop, I should have some more photos before the new year.

Have a beautiful christmas and a safe and happy holiday period.

Where bloggers create

Well it's party time again! thanks to the wonderful karen from My desert Cottage .
  I started taking photos the other day of where I create and I realised I have taken over the house! I take all my photos of my raggedy annie dolls and bears in my lounge room I have a storage cabinet in the lounge room and one in the hall way on the way out to my little studio, and I do mean little.
  Not a lot of room but I have lots in it and two really large storage cabinets.

this is my storage cabinet in the lounge room this is where I keep all my craft books and magizines and a growing collection of vintage bibles.  My house is very french country in style.

here are a couple of my raggedy annie dolls! I love these little ones. This is the cabinet that I do all my photos at.

here are a couple of my artist bears two are little elephants waiting to be finished for my september show! Lots of work still to be done. but they do look so cute sitting together.

This is another storage cabinet I love this one very shabby chic french looking and I love the vintage blue glass I have had this one for close to 8 years now. This is the cabinet on the way out to the studio

this little golly is one of my latest dolls for I will have for sale with one of my bears for the september show, the bear has not been made yet, she is sitting with one of my whendis bears!

I took this one while sitting at my desk in my little studio you can see a couple of other bears that I am working on.  I like to work on a couple at a time I think I have about 6 or 7 on the go,

Meet little lapin my french bunny, she is just waiting on a little black beret!

Here is one of my latest purchases from Wendy Meagher of Whendis bears this is little poppet sitting with my sailor bear! I'm in love with these guys.

Here is my collection of whendis bears! this has taken me about 4 years of collecting it's really hard to get them! they are alway sold by the time i see them. If i could I would buy them all.

this photo is one of my two storage cabinets or shelfing units! it store a lot and can get really untidy when I am looking for something I can't find. does not look the best but is fantastic for storage in small spaces!

Pretty little pink bear is for sale at the moment! she was left over from my recent show you can find her on my etsy site here

another shot of my desk party clean. If I am not creating here you will find me here everyday!
at my kitchen table I love working here.

You can even see my sewing machine in this photo, this is our dinning table. and beleive me it does not alway look like this you all know how untidy we can get when we are creating.

here is another creation of mine a little ellie wearing a vintage dolls bonnet this little girl lives with me.
it's not often I make something for myself.

I could keep going for ever with photos, I hope you had fun looking around my little studio and seeing what I do everyday of the week. thanks again to the wonderful karen from My desert cottage for holding this party
Now I am off to visit everyone
