Kokeshi Crush

This is my new crush, my last one sold a couple of weeks ago so we were so excited about the new delivery of vintage Kokeshi dolls this week. It is a lovely collection from Japan, they are mostly mid to late 20th century. They are all so sweet but this is the one I just couldn't resist, so she is now my new Kokeshi crush ( I say crush because every delivery there is a new favourite it's hard to just love one!)

She is looking right at home already

This baby in a basket Kokeshi is a little trinket container

Such a happy face, too cute


We did actually manage to get some other work done this week, we have finally collected enough lovely vintage haberdashery for our new Vintage Sewing Collections. The new version includes a measuring tape, line threads, vintage ribbon, vintage buttons, vintage sewing needles, a vintage card of mending thread, vintage wooden cotton reel, hooks and eyes, press snaps and French General fabrics. It has taken quite a while to source such of a variety of items, especially in mint unused condition, so it's lovely to see them put together.
