Am I putting too much pressure on myself ?
There is so much I want to do and here I am on the computer again ! I wanted to show you a couple of finds from the weekend and also to show you how button making has crept into my world.
I am making some buttons to match the fabric trim on my " new collection " pants and skirts as well as vintage chenille buttons that will match the garments too. They could be used by the purchaser of the garment as hair clips ( just slide the bobby pin onto the button ) or as a button sewn on to a top to match the outfit.
I have even started wearing a chenille covered button in my hair!
I have very short sticky up spikey hair so it's a bit funny , but I'm lovin it !!
Then there was this bargain from the antique shop at Aratula, It's perfectly rusty which Mr bubba says will paint up a treat with some sanding.Its an old hat box.
This gorgeous folk art teapot from Mt Tamborine.
And this lovely tiny hanging, about 8 cm X 11 cm, it's the heart thing I'm drawn to, cant resist ! Sorry it's a bit bright, I need a lesson on using my camera.
I'm off now for final packing and prep for the Ipswich Show, setting up tomorrow for three days of promoting the Handmade Expo and ofcourse promoting HANDMADE.
We will have lots of beautiful goodies for sale from over 20 of our best stallholders, so if you are in the area or looking for a day out Thurs, Friday or Saturday, 9 am - 9pm each day, Ipswich Showgrounds, Warwick Rd, then do yourself a favour and come visit us.
We have the biggest site in the pavilion ( and probably the best too ! ) and would love to help you choose an amazing Mothers Day gift for your mum. We could also help your child choose you a gift !
