I'm going away in the early hours of tomorrow morning to celebrate my second wedding anniversary. It feels like only a moment ago that I was getting myself fake tanned and acrylic nailed for our wedding! I am very lucky to have such a supportive and caring husband (it doesn't hurt that he's easy on the eye as well) and am looking forward to spending a couple of days away with him. We are also putting a love lock on the special bridge so I'm excited about that too! Goodbye xx
This is the best craft market that I've been to. Crammed full of local artisans who are friendly and lovely. https://www.facebook.com/warktonvillagecraftmarket The market is run by Michelle and Deanne. Michelle runs the successful 'Button It' http://buttonit.co.uk and Deanne runs a gorgeous little shop in Warkton called 'The Gift Box' https://www.facebook.com/thegiftboxwarkton and is the owner of 'Quirky Boots' http://www.quirkyboots.co.uk/. I will be attending the September market on Saturday 21st September 2013 10am - 4pm. Please come along and say hello xx
Received a beautiful bespoke cushion today for my bed. What do you think? This lady is very clever. All her items are hand crafted in Scotland and her prices are extremely reasonable. I chose each fabric on this cushion and the design I wanted. She makes lovely cushions for children's nurseries with their names sewn on and she also has a lovely range of bunting, tea towels and aprons. Her Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dolly-Daydreams-Textiles/138043663036862
Thank you to everyone who has given me such lovely feedback about my website. It is all appreciated. I had a lovely day today. It started with a trip to my lovely friend Louise's from Tootsies Handmade http://www.etsy.com/shop/tootsieshandmade where I picked some lovely new hand crafted lamp-work glass beads. Then I made my way over to Beckworth Emporium in Mears Ashby http://www.beckworthemporium.com/ and had a fab breakfast of eggs florentine with my friend Sarah. After that I headed over to Northampton to spend the afternoon with some great friends and now after writing my blog entry I am going to pick up my friend Jo for a girly DVD night! What a lovely day. Hope you have all had great days too x
I am a jewellery designer who is inspired by things that sparkle. I work from my home in Northamptonshire and I create unique gifts with sterling silver, freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals and locally made lampwork glass beads. I enjoy making bespoke bridal wear and will happily make commissions of your own styles.
