A few new creations

Things have started to settle down about the
bears for now so I have been working on a
few little pouches for the shop.

They are so much fun to make
and also a great way to use some
of the good stuff



made from a vintage table clothes I found
some time ago at the flea


I have decorated them with layers
of vintage lace and a piece of beautiful striped
french fabric in faded green and cream


still love to use fabric images.
These are some awesome old photos
I thought were just perfect for this project.


a little bit of cheesecloth
and some vintage buttons too




Great for a gift
or storage
or a pretty wall hanger decoration.
Put in some branches and pods
and you have a wonderful fall decoration.

Will soon be available here.

Linking up with
over at Faded Charm

Wishing you all a wonderful day

A Little Bear Update

Hello sweet friends

To prove I have been working on bears
I wanted to show you a little preview of
some of the bears that will go with me
to the show in London in September



'Nola' on the left
'Cosette' on the right.
Cosettes dress is made from a vintage handkerchief


This little on is
'LiWoo'
A little panda like in black and pale pink


'Lauritz' on the left
'Zeke' on the right


from vintage furniture fabric
'Tatter' and 'Worn Wally'
made to look old and worn



and this is
'Parker' on the left and
'Seemour Finnegan' on the right
in beautiful green and black handdyed viscose.

All the bears are about 4 inch.

Hope you enjoyed this little preview.
So far I have 22 little one ready
and there´s still time.

Wishing you all a wonderful day

Some Saturday Finds

Hello everyone
and happy sunday

We finally got our car back from the garage.
It broke and we have been without car for 14 days - ughh.
You do get quite dependent....

With the car back I got a change to visit
my favorite flea again.

There weren´t many booths this time
but I did manage to find a few things



an awesome old frame with a cute illustration



a couple of old boxes.
One with purple silk fabric inside and a pair of brooken glasses
One with creamy silk fabric and some vintage silver spoons


Little baby dresses



and some collars, handkerchiefs and a bit of linen


here´s a close up of the spoon box.
It´s a bit worn and well used, but I love the silk
fabric and the way the button is made with the rack




Also a big welcome to
all my new followers.
I´m so glad you stopped by.

Wishing you all
a beautiful sunday sweet friends

A Beautiful Package

Hello all
and happy friday

I wanted to show you
a beautiful package that arrived in the studio
the other day.

Some time ago I was so lucky to win
a giveaway from my friend Gail over at


Gail had wrapped it so pretty
with handstamped ribbon, lace
and millenery berries


Here´s a close up of the berries.
I have never seen any like this over here,
I so happy to add these to my little collection.

Inside the wrapping was this
beautiful collage.


I so love it.
It´s so pretty and simple at the same time.
In the middle is a beautiful poem all surrounded by
an old photo frame and some sweet vintage flowers.
Love the colors and it fits perfect in my studio.
I have found the perfect spot for it.



 Gail also included a sweet little linen pouch
all filled with vintage lace.
Do you think she knows me?

Thank you SO much Gail.
I will treasure it always.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.
Tina ♥♥♥
