it´s not that I have been much in the studio lately.
Not quite my normal self - I guess it´s the reaction
of the recent worries.
probably just have to have some time.
 
anyway
 
I´ve made some journals
I wanted to share with you

and made from vintage books covers.

scrap book paper, cardboard, vintage ledger paper

 
a few little envelope inside too

 
I used the tecnique I learned at the FTB class

 
perfect for a

 
travel journal
visual journal
glue book
note book 

 
or whatever you like.
All pages are blank and ready

A Little Yuletide Webshow

 
A little Yuletide webshow
is going on, on my website right now.
 
A little bunch of bears are available from today
until Nov. 25th.
 
One of them is this sweet little girl
 
Her name is Augusta
and she´s only 4.2 inch tall.
She´s sitting in a little vintage crochet bag.
 
This old style bear is Thaddeus

 
4.5 inch tall
with a machting collar and a little brass bell.
 
He´s made from a vintage mohair
and created to look old, worn
and well loved.
 
If you have a moment,
pop over and have a look
at all the available bears.
 
Here´s the link to my
WEBSITE
 
This will be the last update on the website
for 2012 - and only available until Nov. 25th.
 
It´s time to start working on
bears for Hugglets coming up in February :-)
 
Have a wonderful day everyone
 
Tina ♥♥♥

It´s been a while

 
Hello sweet friends and followers.
 
it´s been a while since I have posted in here.
Some of you know (from fb) that we have
been dealing with some health issues over here.
 
 
Mr. T had to have a suddenly and urgents surgery
and we have been out of the loop while waiting
for test results  - tuesday we
received message that everything was gone
and under control. We´re so relieved.
Life can go back to normal - Happy Day :-)

 
I haven´t been much in the studio due to circumstances
but relaxed with a few trips to the flea.

 
finding lots of old books
lots of vintage doilies
these very cool vintage Christmas tree candle holders

 
an old suitcase
some tarnished silverware

 
and tons of delicious vintage linen.
A lot of these find are now in the shop
 
(photos from Instagram - sorry for the blur)
