Okay so I tried not to go nuts on etsy for as long as I could possibly manage, then I discovered all these amazing supplies and fell off the wagon! All these little tags are just too perfect for journaling at my other blog record the day The etsy sellers shop addresses are below so go check them out. Tags, labels and twine from. . . . . .
every jot and tittle, cOveTableCuriOsitIEs and string, And my absolute favorite purchase was a set of paper dolls made by Amy Earles from wool and water . They were packaged beautifully and I can't decide whether to make them up or keep them as a sheet?

Amy is so clever! I hope she will be making some different dolls in the future I can feel a collection coming on!

Hanging out recently bleached lace to dry, ready for making corsages. workroom is all tidy and set up so I can just attack the pile of wips awaiting my attention! Have to harness my creative flow while I have it! The hallway is so close to completion its been hard to think of anything else.

Have managed to put together some little inspiration packs for etsy though, these are inspired by birds and contain a vintage bird card that I think would have been originally collected when you bought tea. I have also included hand dyed lace in vibrant turquoise, card tag with 4 trims and threads, 2 silk flowers, one page of text and one page of images of birds from figi, tiny gold buds wrapped in tawny embroidery thread and to finish of a mixed pack of blue beads and sequins al tied up with raffia.
Hope they will inspire someone!
