I´m back

Hi All

I´m back from a great show in London
and a wonderful vacation in the UK.

Here´s a look at my table
ready for the show to start.


I had such a great time.
Thank you so much to all of you who came to visit
and also a huge thank you to all who bought home a bear.

Almost all the bears found new homes.
Only a teeny little bunch came home with me.
They are now listed on my website.

After a few days in london
we were heading for Oxford for the rest of the week.
This was our first visit to this beautiful town
and we so enjoyed the stay.

Here´s a few photos from our trip
for you to enjoy


 

 

 



Everything was so beautiful
and so interesting.
Will post more photos in a later post.

and

now it´s finally time to reveal what I have been
working on the last several month.
Stay tuned for the next post :o)

So happy to be back
and will try to catch up on everything.

Wishing you all a wonderful day
and thank you so much for visiting.

Bears in a Box ready to travel

Hi All

Sorry for my absence lately.
It´s been some busy days over here.
Just need to do the last packing now.



Tablecloth
and wine boxes to use for the display.
Don´t worry - they will be covered with more tablecloth.
I need to have some levels on the table
for the bears to be seen


Lace and doilies and old cigar boxes
for the display too


All set to go


I will be leaving early in the morning heading for London
and the show on Sunday - can´t wait.
23 little ones hoping to find a new home.

After a few days in London we will be spending
some days in Oxford too, for
a little but much needed vacation.

Relaxing with some great food and wine, and if I´m lucky
an antique and Craft market too.

I´ll be out of the studio until September 18th.
Hoping to catch up with you all when I return.

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend.
Tina ♥♥♥

Little Lace Books


Little Lace Books

that´s what I have been working on lately.
I really enjoy using little snippets
and pieces and leftovers for these


this is the layers in two books
not two 'pages' are alike


Here´s a little peek at one of the pages.


The covers are made from vintage quilt pieces.
Some very worn ones I came across some time ago.
Love the faded colors and just knew they would
be perfect for this project.



some more details on the pages.
a sweet little pocket with a teeny tiny bird tag


another with a sweet vintage image


cute velvet flowers
and vintage buttons


You can see the quilt cover on this one
tied with a silk ribbon with an old
rusty belt bucket



Just a little more than a week to go
before I leave for London and The Hugglets Fair.
There´s still things to do
but I think I´m on schedule.

Thanks for visiting today
and wishing you all a very beautiful day
this first day of autumn.

Tina ♥♥♥
