Here are a couple of dears for you to look at, also looking for a home.
A little lamb who is very mischiveous. And...
A bear who enjoys apples.
My first attempt at a mohair stuffie, nothing even close to Lynn's lovely, lovely creatures, but I tried.
So here we are, one corner I really love. Three different hooks, I have many more scattered around but these are my favourites. I really enjoy buying things with the same principal that are very different from each other. It's lovely to place mismatched items like these around and see them forming a group.
As I mentioned before, I adore flowers. here are some i put in a dish, after using them as 'placecards' in eggcups (a la Martha Stewart) for easter dinner. The color combination is so fresh and spring-y. Wonderful!
So Miss Annabelle here is the prototype, and not for sale.(As it turns out, the felt fabric I used wasn't the strongest and the quality isn't all that great either, hence the 'furryness'.) But please, If anyone would like one like her (or any other kind of animal for that matter) please contact me with your wishes!
Gosh I love flowers. I bought a pot of blue grape hyacinths and some yellow tulips the other day. And today i bought some wonderful pink potted roses. It makes me so happy when I get home and have flowers waiting for me. It just makes my home much more, well... home-y. I think I like Old English Roses and Ranunculus best, but that's no surprise since i love absolutely everything English gardens and houses contain.(I'm sure Alicia would agree!)
Here are a couple of pics of my dear little Coco. I finished her today.
I made a little cat aswell but it's too dark to take pictures now and my batteries are dead. Tomorrow then. I hope it's sunny.
I'm having a couple of friends over for Easter and for once I actually managed to make the invites in time, so that I can actually send them. I was wondering what I should put on the cards when I stumbled upon these wonderful plush bunnies by Bella Dia. So I made a gluable 2D version of them. (I hope you aren't mad!!) I also customised the envelopes with some beatiful paper I bought the other day.
I'm not usually one for copying things directly, but I just can't get over the lovely things that are out there. Alicia Paulson made this wonderful Christmas wreath. Its so colourful and amazingly fresh that I just have to make one for my door. But I assure you it will be different. Much more springtime-y. I'll post pics when it's finished.
Next time I'll be posting, it will be something orginal. Promise!
Well I thought I could speak computer language, but as it turns out I can barely say 'Hello' and 'Where is the helpdesk?'. I have a few problems with my blog:
1. The links title over there ---> is much too wide (see, the other side has a margin). I have no Clue how to fix this.
2. The archive-by-date page is distorted, the right hand side column is way too far down.
3. I can't figure out how to make categories. (No, I don't have a 'Create Category' button or anything. These are all the tabs I have.
4. I somehow managed to mess up the comments page, but I think
I can fix that on my own.
If anyone can help it would be much appreciated!
Edit2: Comments fixed with the help of Lisa!
Wow, I already have two comments! I've been wrestling with my layout for the past day and now I'm finally satisfied. (Okay, There are a few things that still bother me, but I'll fix them later.)
So, I've had this woven torso flopping around in my closet for ages, and yesterday I finally got a leg for it. Considering how little effort it required, I'm a little ashamed I didn't do it earlier. Anyways, I think the torso itself is beautiful and also very handy(!) so I' really glad It's finally out in the open. I painted the foot myself with some pink fabric paint I had left over, and I must say, I'm satisfied. It looks so pretty!
Hi, my name is Helena and I live in Finland. Inspired by so many wonderful crafts blogs (Posie Gets Cosy, A Ervilha Cor de Rosa, Molly Chicken and many many more) I decided to start one of my own! Watch out for updates!
