From Nicholas and Steele I found something I had been looking for, for a while now. Two antique letters that have been folded to make the envelope as well. Two beautiful colours a cream and a pale blue. I have had a design and frames waiting for a good 14 months now and I wanted something that had things on the front and back because of the nature of this old glass frame. On the front with the address I can pop on my design but on the back the original letter is on view as well ... these two were perfect. Shown here is the front of the cream one and the back of the pale blue one...
Over the moon!
Also this is where I bumped into Chris of the Cosy Club fame and wouldn't you just know it we were
around things for the garden that had fairy sayings and notions on them. There were pots, galvanised buckets, watering cans and terracotta pots that that had been properly painted with outside paint and treated and I am not going to tell you what she bought as its not my tell but I bought this dear little terracotta pot and I am going to plant something delicate in there ..... What do you think!?
Simone ofs Ayres and Grace is such a talented maker and her love of animals shines through in her work and she has a strong understanding of the way they look and adding her whimsy to the design and making just makes her beautiful hand made items that much more desirable. It takes her days for each one sometimes and you can see that in their quality. As you know I have a sleeping hare that sits on my bed she made and one of her little cushions with hand embroidery and a saying on it that Mrs Hare leans on... well there was this little lady and she is tiny around 4 inches in height and she needed to come home with me to sit on my bedside table .... Isn't she adorable. Made from clay and hand painted and a dress made from some vintage quilt with a little heart detail and a vintage bell around her neck ... it was love.
