Sorry to scare you, but it has been all about Christmas this week.... lots of new stock arriving, installing Christmas windows and decorating Christmas trees for my clients, making lots of Christmas cutie doll kits, scented pillows, Christmas Stockings and all of our other l'uccello products and taking photos of our muse (shown above) for the Marche Rouge "'Deck the Halls"' Christmas Market postcard....crazy but fun.
This is what I made for Kozminskys Jewellers of their Christmas windows, there are two of them one for each of the front windows. I wanted them to be whimsical, charming and hopefully fun to stop and look at.
You have to watch those l'uccelli they love a bit of bling!
The reflection makes it hard to photograph, the colours look much richer and lustrous than the photo suggests
We had a delivery of fabulous vintage bobbins, great new colours and shapes.
Soooooo excited about our new range of pure wool felt from Europe, beautiful quality and we have 45 colours, I feel a softie or two coming on.
So many yummy colours!
We now have this great series of paper doll kits, ranging from early 19th century through to Chanel and other mid 20th century designers, too cute.
Very special deliveries, late Victorian sewing and lace making tools, including this gorgeous vegetable ivory pineapple shaped measuring tape in perfect working order. Lovely carved bone lace bobbins with pretty glass spangles and delicate mother of pearl thread winders. We also received the lovely glass container with silver engraved lid, it contains 3 old crochet hooks and would be perfect for storing a collection. The lady cameo is a lovely vintage glass button.
Our neighbour Buttonmania is have a fabulous sale starting Monday 15th November, not to be missed!
The MARCHE ROUGE "Deck the Halls" Christmas Market will be on the 3rd and 4th of December, we will post all of the details in the next few days, mark it in your calender it's going to be great fun and there will be lots of affordable Christmas gifts on offer.
