I was inspired to create a little nest for a little birdie in this sweet little cup in it's little saucer, after I procured it from Joolz when she said she would toss it if I didn't want it.
It's quite chippy and would be a bit hard for her to sell as a collectible, so I couldn't let it be tossed could I? Not when it would make such a lovely home for this little cutie?
The nest looks a bit like I've just stuffed a whole pile of fibre and twigs and mohair into the cup, in this pic, but not true. Nuh uh! It's a woven thing, with wire and raffia and fibres and twigs and string and mohair. Should have taken another pic with it out of the cup maybe?
Then I was motivated to start on the range of aprons I've been wanting to put into action for a long time.
This motivation came from reading one of my many fav mags Apronology. Love love love Stampington mags!!
The result was this one in whites.... mostly vintage linens, doilies, netting and laces.
I enjoyed making it so much, I'm now wondering why it took me so long to start!!
I'm definitely making more very soon.
Vintage linens and teacloths and hankies etc are so lovely to work with and create such pretty looks.
....and I'm grateful for all the fabulous people I've connected with through blogging!!
One in particular is Christabel from Zinnia Pea. A couple of days ago she just up and did a feature post about my madeit store Sweet Chenille!!! How fabulous is that??
I came to know her when she became one of my fav customers a few months ago. She's such a friendly and gracious lady.
Thank you so much, once again Christabel! x
