with little pockets
and sweet fabric images.

Everything in this book is handsewn
using my stash of fleamarket finds.
Here´s the spine

and the back.

This book is here
A wonderful and unexpected surprise
arrived in my mailbox today.
My sweet friend Rebecca
over at A re-purposed Life
had send me this awesome mag

where she had her beautiful vintage
inspired bracelets featured inside.
not only did she send me the mag.
Inside the mag. she had tucked in the
original one that was feaured in the mag.

Can you believe this.
How lucky am I.
Look how beautiful this bracelet is
with the rose made from a beautiful
velvet fabric and all the lovely details

I LOVE it Rebecca.
Thank you SO much

Thank you so much for popping in today.
Wishing you all a wonderful

A Little Bear

I´ve made a little bear
A sweet little one
only 3.5 inch tall
Sitting in a tiny brass hardware
on a vintage doily
this little one is Tessa

She´s made from a very soft pale yellow mini bear fabric
with brown ultra suede paws

wearing a vintage lace as collar around her neck.

the lace, doily and brass hardware
are flea market finds

She´s available on Ebay
Tessa and I wishes you
a beautiful day :-)

Little Journals

I´ve started working on some journals and books.
These first ones are some little ones
about 3 x 4 inch - pocket size. 
Some time ago I was so lucky to win a giveaway
over at Rhonda´s blog
A French Themed envelope filled with ephemera
- perfect to use in my work.

I knew I wanted to use it for my books
and these were perfect for that.
Little books in French style

inside are blank white pages
all ready to use for notes and journaling

These next ones
are fabric covers for little notebooks

the covers are removeable so when the notebook
is filled up, just tuck in a new one.

I used all vintage stuff  from my flea markets for these.
vintage table cloth, vintage lace and doilies

and some sweet fabric images.

here they are - stacked up

they will all go in the shop soon.
Wishing you all a beautiful weekend.
