sewing room happenings

I found some lovely wooden shelves for my sewing room at Newbury Antiques Market, if you have never been it's so exciting and not too expensive.  There are a lot of stalls selling all sorts of vintage and retro pieces. You are bound to find something you like.
The butterflies I found when we visited Hastings for the day. They were tucked away in a bric a brac shop on the old town high street. I very nearly didn't buy them but I'm glad I did as they look great on my new shelves!

I've been photographing some of my handmade work and have just added some of my vintage floral cards to my etsy shop
So why no treat someone special and send them a beautiful handmade card or frame one up as a pretty picture.
