Vintage Fabric and a Little Sneak Peek

I was so lucky to get hold
of some vintage furniture fabric when I was
in London last September.



some of it really worn and distressed
and in awesome colors too


thought they would fit perfect
for my little bears
so I have been working with those these
last monthsw while preparing for the upcoming
online shows.



Here´s a little sneak peek
of those little vintage looking ones






First Online show will be next weekend

November 6th and
November 7th

Sneak peeks from participating artists
have been posted to the side
so make sure to pop over a visit.

I´ll have 3 little ones available at this show
and I hope you´ll come and visit.

Wishing you all a wonderful saturday

White Wednesday


This is my first time participating in
White Wednesday
over at Faded Charm

I have been admiring all the white stuff for so long
and wanted to jump in too
especialy for two reasons
I´m finally started to get more white stuff in my studio
(and I so love it)
and I´m still experimenting with my photos
so here´s a few shoots
of my growing lace stock and a new creation too






Happy White Wednesday

New finds and a few creations

This last week have gone so very fast.
We have had family visit during the weekend to
celebrate hubby and sons birthdays.
We had such a great time with them all.

This is my lastest finds
from the big indoor flea market
Remember I told you about it..



some awesome crochet pieces and
a sweet little silver tray


I also found this old and worn photo album


kind of rare over here
but this time I was lucky
and it was for a fair price too


filled with beautiful photo frames
and wonderful old cabinet cards

on my shelf


Time is running fast
and before we know it
Christmas will be around



I have created a few pieces for the upcoming holiday


layers of lace and fabric
and a little bit of red too
This one have a sweet hanger


This one is a little bit smaller
using an old rusty key
and a little twig


The Christmas pieces will go in my shop

**************

A little bear note:

The bears for the two upcoming
online shows are finished.
They only need their photoshooting
and a little sneak peek will appear later.

Thank you so much for visiting today
and I wish you all a wonderful day

A Teeny Little Halloween in my Home

Thought I would show you
my attemp to decorated a teeny little bit for Halloween
in my home.

It´s hard to find Halloween decoration stuff over here
so my collection is really small so far.
I did manage to find a few white pumpkins this year


So this is how it looks like when you enter through my door.
We have a very small hallway so there´s only  room for a
small sideboard.


further on - in the next little 'hall' I have an old
chest of drawers inherited from our great grandmother
I have put my large cloches on that one with
a wonderful fabric pumpkin underneath.
It would have looked so much nicer if the chest of drawers
had been painted white - think I might concider that




This is my diningroom table.
A few more of the white pumpkins



and a little spooky decoration in my recent cloch.



This isn´t really a Halloween thingy is it? - just though I would add something black in this one.
told you.... I don´t have that much decoration yet :-)
It looks really pretty on an old brass table also inherited.



My work table in my studio.
We found an old wooden box used for dried raisins
at my MILs, and I though it would look pretty on my table
to display different stuff. 



now displaying one of my own creations.

I´m still hunting
and hope to add more to my collection for next year.

 Thank you so much for visiting today
and wishing all of you, my wonderful blogging friends
a wonderful day

Beautiful Fall Weather and a Few Creations for Christmas

We have the most wonderful fall weather these days
Kind of Indian summer with lots of sun.
So Sunday we decided to drive up to the north coast for a walk.
It´s only half an hours drive from where I live.



we walked out through the forrest




and back along the beach




a delightful trip that was.

***

Now for something else.
One of the girls in my Cottage Style Etsy group wanted to have a black and white Christmas this year
and we had a little tlak about what could be used and what could be created
and that definately got my head spinning.

and when seing Karlas wondeful Frozen Charlotte Fairy Creation
in the new Somerset Life
that´s was got me into playing with my peatpots again



so here goes:
peatpots painted black
a little lace edging sewn on


and decorated with cheeseclothes,
muslin and sweet vintage images


these little black and white tag decorations
are created from those little photos I got
in the swap with Heidi



I´ve scanned them because I didn´t wanted to use the original ones
and because I didn´t like them to be glossy.
Same photo on both sides and
cheeseclothes sewn in between.


pretty little decorations
for a Black and White Christmas

Thank you so much for peeking in today
Wishing you all a wonderful day

Petite Box Swap

Everyone in my group have received their
Petite Boxes - Black and White editions
so now I can reveal the photos



this is how my boxes for my swap partners looks like on the outside
Old book pages, a vintage doily, black ribbon with vintage button
and a sweet image sewn on


here´s what was inside.
We don´t have to correct size matchboxes in Denmark
so I glued two together instead and 
created some with two drawers.

and

here´s what I received



this is the box from Heidi
so beautiful decorated with ledger paper
a wonderful white flower and an old tip for a fountain pen



and here´s a peak of what was inside



the box was decorated on the inside too - how cute is that



wonderful black and white goodies from Heidi
I especialy love those tiny black and white photos - such a great idea

and



this was in the package from Lorraine


all of this was extras - awesome halloween goodies
Can´t wait to create with this


and this is the beautiful box Lorraine created for me
I love the Halloween theme and that sweet little girl with fairy wings


Inside the box there were sweet silver stars, a little bling with rhinestones
and the sweeterst little white bird.

Thank you so much
Heidi and Lorraine
for creating these beautiful boxes for me.

Wishing you all a wonderful day

Lace, more Lace and creations with Lace

I had some awesome goodies arriving in the studie this last week
and the title of this post might indicate it´s going to be about lace
so
if you´re not into lace you might choose not to read further


here´s what was in one parcel
a wonderful table clothes with crochet squares
more crochet pieces - not sute what those on the right side
have been used for
the white on top is probably a border for a closet
don´t you think


another bunch of wonderful lace in a second parcel
all white and cream colors



and some crochet doilies too



then a bunch of old junk goodies
all rusty and with a little bit of sparkling too



and more goodies
awesome right....

are you still reading....

Now you probably think
what on earth are she going to use this for
it might be okay with the lace
but that old junk....

okay
I´ll show you


this is how my work table looks like right now.

If you look closely you can see that latest flea market find in
top of the photo - that old funny cake stand
now filled with wonderful pieces of the junk goodies
and my collection of my broken rhinestone jewelry pieces too

so

it´s all going to be creations like this one



with layers of bits and pieces and vintage buttons too



this piece is added on top of a canvas
to make a sweet wall hanger decoration



here´s some with a jewelry piece on top
and some cheese clothes and muslin too
The red border on the right hand side, you can see through the lace,
is an old book cover I used and background for this collage



a closeup on one of them


sweet vintage images printed on muslin
surpriced..... :-)



I think this might give you an idea of what the mess on
my working table is about.

Lots more in the making
some with pockets
some for an upcoming swap
some with the old rusty pieces.

If you´re still here you probably like lace as much as I do.
Or at least I hope so

Thanks for visiting today
and wishing you all the most beautiful weekend
