Leaf Light Panels

I love it when a home reflects what's going on - Birthdays, Christmas, World Soccer Cups, etc.  And so its good to reflect that Autumn has been happening here in the Southern Hemisphere! These Autumny wax-paper leaf panels have brought a touch of the outside in and...

More Cushions

I've put 2 more cushions into the store today. The first one is a real favourite of mine. I loves the blues and greens of this house tapestry and I love the way the patchwork backing made from linen samples turned out.  The next cushion is made from a vintage jersey...

Rescued and Revived!

This unfinished work of craft was a pleasure to transform into a delightful cushion cover. The embroidered natural textured linen is so pleasing. It comes with a separate silky sari inner and buttons closed on...

Vinyl Bookends

These Bookends were originally created in response to a customer's request.  A great way to get creative!...

Glass Cloche

Glass Cloche or Bell Jar - Originally made for protecting plants from the cold.  I am using mine to protect [display] my bone china tea cup collection! It took quite a bit of manoeuvring to get this to work.  I turned the jar upside down, and stacked the cups. ...

Retro-ness!

A rare bout of flu this past weekend meant that I was able to finish covering these glass bowls. [I can lie on the couch and crochet at the same time!]  These very well worn pyrex and cutglass pieces make a good frame for string crochet. And yay - I am feeling so much...

Found Bonsai

I gained a spontaneous bonsai collection this weekend. Paging through vintage books, I came across these lovely line drawings. Completely inspired by this issue of the latest Elle Decoration Mag, these book page botanicals are adorning the top of my cupboard, in a...

Soft Pottery

The thing about having a growing business, is that you have to make, (or organise to get made) a lot of the same thing. Being a lover of new things and new ideas means that its quite a discipline for me. This past weekend, I took a creative break. I felt like a potter...

Grate Find!

This is why I love thrift [charity, or indie] shopping!  Because you come across some random circular grater inserts in a pile of rusty, dusty metal objects... And then take them home, insert some tea light candles and switch the lights...

Shibori

If you follow me on Pinterest, you will realise that I am quite interested in Shibori - the Japanese way of dyeing cloth.  This past weekend I tried some of the techniques out on a few vintage cloths and new dish towels.  It was a good learning experience and I am...

Paper Tube Hearts

I love working with paper - and this is my latest project! Tubes of vintage book paper connected into a heart shape! And I'm loving the large wooden chopping board I sourced at the SPCA last week. I scrubbed it clean, and now it makes a good background for pics! How...

Puzzle Hearts

We were so happy to have some new products at the market this week, and soon to be available online too! Claire Norden produced some gorgeous puzzle hearts for Freshly Found.  I have claimed the white one for myself. Claire colour co-ordinates the pieces before gluing...
