Ohhh, I have spent a lovely week off work and just relaxing and crafting to my heart's content.
I have also stocked my two new sites Etsy.com and Misi.co.uk. You can check out my Irish vintage and handmade items on them. Links on right....
And this is my latest creation...a boudoir corsage. Yes, I invented such a thing...after all why just wear a corsage on your daytime clothes?
While the snood scarf above is very affordable the following luxury scarf is not.... It is the most expensive item I have for sale.... A vintage Hermes silk twill scarf from 1965. ...Just $299! More pics of it on Etsy.com see sidebar
This is something that is not for sale. I made it for my nephew, Luke who is getting married to the lovely Aimee next Sat. 9th Jan in Avoca, Wicklow. Luke was so very fond of my dad that he is going to wear one of his ties at his wedding. I made this shadow box and included some wood shavings and my dad's old wooden rule. I labeled it "WIlla's Rule"I then added the words that my Da used to always say to us..." The man who never made a mistake - never made anything!"
I'll bring you some photos of the lovely young couple next week.
I almost forgot to say......Happy New Year to you all!
I am so loking forward to this new year and have great hopes for a great one (It has to be better than last year, which was my worst ever)
Still we all survived........ onwards and upwards!
Now, I want to say hello and welcome to a new blogger, my friend in USA, Mimi.
