Fall

October is almost over and it´s definately fall here.
I have been spending time preparing and teaching my bearmaking class
this weekend , so I haven´t had time for new creations to show you.
Instead I thought I would share a few photos from my studio
and the beautiful view to my forest.


this is the look from my kitchen window.
the sun was out and I manage to take these photos before
all the leaves were gone.

I just love those colors and this is definately
my favorite time of the year.


when the light changes and the colors had faded



it´s time for candlelight, hot chocolate
cosiness and creative time in the studio.
what is your favorite time of the year?
until next time
have a lovely day

Victorian decorations

Remember the lace pack a few posts back?
All that lace have been lying on my working table and
now I couldn´t resist anymore.



I decided to create some tiny decorations
with some of the lace.
As background is used some grunge tags - I do find
the color on these perfect together with lace



1 inch old lace wrapped around and decorated with more
lace and bits and pieces


old metal letters and numbers
bought on a market some time ago



velvet ribbon, madonna medaillions bought
back from travels in Italy




I call these for Victorian decorations.
I don´t know if this is the correct word for these
but I do find them very very romantic and nostalgic


In my Tinybeardk shop later today.
Have a lovely and romantic day.

A Little Bit Christmas

Going throug some old stuff I came cross these sheets I bought many years ago
and I couldn´t resist making a little christmas project.
I know it´s a bit early for that but that´ll have to be..

these little pixies are reproductions of old christmas garlands
meant to be used on the christmas tree




I clued the pixies onto cardstock, cut them out separately
and sewed them on a string



They are only 1.5 inch tall
and if you look closely, you can see they
have tiny letters on their bellys
saying:
GLÆDELIG JUL
which is Danish and means
MERRY CHRISTMAS
a sweet little garland
to be used on the christmas tree, in the window
on the manntle piece
or whereever you want to wish a

Merry Christmas.
Have a lovely monday

Who said something about lace

I simply HAVE to show you what came in the mail today.
One day browsing Etsy I came across Kristine´s shop
and saw this pack with lace and trim.


the pack arrived today and all I can say is WOW
Look at this lot



isn´t it amazing
lots and lots of beautiful trims and lace


in the most wonderful colors of white, cream and ivory
my favorite
and some in pale pink and pale blue too.


My head is spinning with ideas and if you think
Ribbon and Lace packs you might be on the right track - lol

Have a lovely day

sewing instruction in another language I can tell you - lol

and have put together this little kit for my little 3 inch bear
Alberto



the complete sewing kit is now available in my Etsy Shop


This little kit is the first one.
I do plan to make more and E-patterns too.
