crack open the Sherry...'s official, I'm retiring from lamp making. I never really intended to spend over 2 years making lamps 5 days a week, 9 till 5 but that's what happened. Crazy!

I'm totally astounded by the support that my little business received. I mean really gobsmacked.
{Please be aware I am about to pick up my trumpet...} If you'd have told me 3 years ago that products designed and made by me would be supplied to over a dozen shops and featured in Real living, Home Beautiful, Notebook, Peppermint and Frankie Magazine and been given a full page spread in the Herald Sun I'd have no doubt laughed quite a lot. {...I have now put the trumpet down.}

Anyway, it's time for some new adventures (one of which includes this smiley chappie).

The last of my products are listed here.

Thanks guys!

So I promised a photo and here's one (better late than never) and look he's sleeping! Amazing! Hey - if he does more of this maybe I'll be able to do some work....

I ♥ drizzle......

...aaahhhh this funny old weather is reminding me of Yorkshire... so much so that today just for the hell of it I dragged the dog out for a two hour walk in the drizzle. Not sure he appreciated it but I get a perverse pleasure from being able to wear my raincoat so the opportunity couldn't be missed.

I also remembered just how much I love these weather prints from Mitchell and Dent. I really do love them. Don't you?

Lovely things............... crochet......

I've been trying to teach myself crochet but I'm not having a huge amount of success... lack of patience probably. Thanks to the fantastic Meet Me at Mikes I did whip up some of these heart shaped little dangly things which I used as gift tags on my Christmas presents, but I think I'm going to be leaving the rest to the experts.

Here's a few beautiful crochet influenced items that I love (and I admit I've already purchased a few of them!).

1. Necklace by Loved on Madeit, 2. Coaster by Uncommon on Etsy,
3. Storage by Tuuni on Etsy, 4. Bunting by Moose & Bird on Etsy,
5. Baby headband by KylieB on Madeit, 6. Necklace by Mandalay Arthouse on Madeit,
7. Necklace by Kitty Hugo on Madeit, 8. Potholder by Emma Lamb on Etsy
