Very quiet here in my little studio room, all my family are away and I am trying to get to the bottom of a large pile of paper work while watching re-runs of one of my favourite shows Anne Of Green Gables.... Was so excited today because I received some postcards and little tags for my packaging that I produced using some of my own photography and they come up oh so pretty...Still a dream of mine to produce my own stationary line....journals, cards, papers day...  These photos are of my studio room today, reasonably clean and organised.... I love this space :)

Stitching the day away...

I have been busy using up some small pieces of fabric and making hand sewn little yo-yo's out of them I plan to sew them all together and make a tablecloth or coverlet, they are fun to do and can be made into so many great ideas. In my studio I have been busy doing a few projects, some custom photo charms for Wedding Bouquets and Birthday gifts and a little bit of drawing and painting, in some Jane Eyre themes so watch for some new work to be listed. I am working on some sketching and ideas for a little sewing booklet and will share so pictures with you as I progress. Happy Spring.

Sugar Plums Dancing in your Dreams

The arrival of Christmas brings all things pretty, taking out your favorite ornaments and decorations bring the magic to a winter's day. To share with you, one of my little Very sweet Sugarplum Dancer Shadowbox Theater, made with vintage woodcuts from the 18th century and housed in a gilded 4 inch by 4 inch box with lid, hung from a silk ribbon, I have this theater shown with a little battery operated tealight in side which you can add your own for a magical effect. I have had many compliments on this piece in my home so I will continue to offer this design for purchase. in my little paper shop Victorianwoodlands. Makes for a sweet keepsake gift for any occasion.

Woodland Tea

I have been watching lately the Edible Garden, which is truly one of my favorite garden shows. Alys Fowler made some delicious looking lavender biscuits. of course i had to find the recipe and found it from here. I made a small patch first and added just small amount of dried lavender, since years and years ago i made lavender biscuits with another recipe and I could not eat them. Well, i must show these biscuits to you and made a little woodland tea party of it...

i am just dreaming what kind of cookies i will bake with this recipe next time.
chocolate, ginger, raspberry, honey, lemon...
