Candy Cane

I had fun at the Candy Cane Craft Fair on Saturday. Here I am on my Stall. Thanks to everyone who bought something.

My friends keep me going with little commissions, and my latest one was these make-up bags.

EEEk It's been freezing today, and the cold weather makes it start to feel Christmassy. I am super excited about my daily advent picture posts. First one tomorrow.

Craft Fair!!!!

It's the marvelous Craft Candy Christmas Craft Fair this weekend. It is on today and tomorrow. I will be there tomorrow, and can't wait. Here's a little selection of some of the Items I will be selling......

...If you can't make it this weekend then pop along next Sat to the Julefest craft fair next Saturday which I am also doing. I love the flyers for both these events they are really lovely designs.

New Finds

Today was a good day for Charity Shop treasures. I got a yellow ceramic, dressing table trinket  tray thing, which the lady wrapped up so nice, I didn't want to unwrap, and as I am moving soon I am waiting to display it in it's full glory. I saved a vintage fur Muff (fake of course!). I am not allowed it until next week, as it is part of a display and have to wait till the local 'Best Christmas window display' has been judged! hee hee.
I also got  some amazing old  kitsch Christmas cards and Baubles which I am going to post on here in December. I have decided to do a blog advent Calender, so every day in December leading up to Christmas I am going to post a lovely Christmassy pic.
Oh yes and I also got 2 vases this is one of them, it's so bad it's good!

Organizing the troops

I have been getting things ready and trying to make more Christmas items for my Craft fair this weekend...It is making me feel all Christmassy. When I called at the shops yesterday to buy something for tea, I came away with all this instead!

Toot Toot!

I got my new car today. Ideally I would have liked an old VW camper van in sunshine yellow, but as this isn't practical for my commute to work I got a black VW polo instead. It is only 9 months old and is a 1.4 TDI so is perfect. The best thing is the nice big boot for all my carboot bargins!

Snow Bunnies

I found the little glass rabbit in a Charity Shop on my lunch break at work today. I couldn't resist him, and he spurred me on to make the white doozer rabbit. There has been lots of crafting going on, but mainly angelfaries, so it was nice to go back to stitching.

ages and ages

It seems like forever since I have done any crafting and I have a couple of craft fairs looming so I am posting this photo of some little eskimo girls I was working on before I re-joined the working world. Hopefully these little guys will spur me into doing more.

I went to see The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus on Friday night, and I loved it, purely because it was a feast for the peepers. I love films with loads of amazing outfits, sets and visuals. I have always had a love of the old Victorian style fairground rides and freak shows. They seem so magical and mysterious and I love all the ornate patterning and decoration. I saw this carousel in Cornwall on my holiday and thought it was beautiful.

Today was my first day in my new job. It went well and I really like it, but not the early starts. It was all dark and rainy when I left the house this morning and all dark and rainy when I got home.... but the good news is I'm going to be able to work from home 2 days a week.
My brain is all worn out now, and I'm to pack my bag for morning then bed.
