Monday Blog

Another week into the New Year, soon be thinking of Christmas in July, in between looking forward to the Spring these long dark days have gone on long enough, the Inspirativity event is in full swing, the hall is filling up with Artisans and Therapists, some wonderful displays expected.

Launched my Lavender Collection last week now for something a little different the

Marie Antoinette Collection

A much maligned and often misunderstood Queen of France, popularity in all things
Marie Antoinette has grown, maybe down to the film of the same name, she has now found
favour in many hearts across the world. Just a taster of things to come:

Working on a Marie Antoinette pillow with her dressed draped in organza and rose buds...

& back to more creative routes, a silk and organza necklace, the flowers are handmade with a pearl centre, love these colours and great fun to make and wear, corsages next....
