Not On The High Street

It's happened! Only a year late but at least I have finally got my act into gear to sell on the website 'Not on the high street'. Here's hoping it will be the beginning of something good! Click on the logo below if you want to be taken to my store.

Teapot Pendent

I designed this last week. It's decoupage on beech wood and hand pierced. It's quite small at the moment. I'm thinking I might make it bigger - make it a statement piece.

New Earring Design

Here are some pictures of a pair earrings I designed. The pattern is from vintage material and etched onto the surface of silver before being carefully hand pierced. I then added an oxidising solution to bring out the detail.

Ready For Winter

This is my new red duffle coat. I am all excited for the cold weather now. The scarf was knitted by my mother in a mustard yellow - my favourite colour. Come on winter, I'm ready for you!

It's Been A While Since My Visit To Steyning

As the title states, it's been a while since I went for a day trip to Steyning, August in fact. I am only posting about it now because for some reason Blogger has once again allowed me to upload images. Apparently it didn't want to for a two month period (I am guessing it wanted a holiday). 

Anyway, I thought I would get back into the swing of things by posting images of the day. 

Steyning is a beautiful little remote village about a fifteen minute drive from my house. My grandmother was staying with us for a week so I threw her in the car, switched on the sat nav (because I have no sense of direction) and off we went. The weather was miserable but some of the lovely houses we saw more than lifted my damp spirits.

And of course, no day out is complete without the tea room. The cobblestone tearoom was extra lovely. Me and my grandmother enjoyed a pot of tea drank from miss-matched tea cups. What more could you ask for!

This poster was hanging inside the tea room. I honestly believed they were real gold medals from the 1948 Olympics, that was until I got closer and saw the embossed Cadbury's logo. Oh dear!
