vintage lace

 On Monday I spent the day helping out with an art project at a local primary school where my mum works. It was so much fun, we were making giant bug  sculptures, butterflies, ladybirds and spiders were just a few of my favourites. We decorated them with tissue paper, sequins and paint.... I wish I had my camera with me.

I have also been finishing off bits and pieces for my open studio exhibition near Oxford, which starts on Saturday 14th -22nd May. If you would like to know more details about my show, please leave me your contact details.

As usual vintage lace will feature...I seem to be overflowing with it at the moment. I love making these handmade cards, adding stamps, botanical prints, old french letters, and of course, lace!

I've just finished these blog cards off with stamps and lace too.

This little orchid was a present, and because I couldn't find a flower pot small enough, I thought this teacup would be perfect.
