Miss Rose Sister Violet - I'm Inspired

thank you Miss Rose Sister Violet!

Well today I went to the craft show here in brisbane.  the same time last year you would have found me there selling. but this year I just over committed myself to to many shows and something had to give. It's a lot of hard work.
  So when I went today I headed straight for Miss rose sister violet, they have the most beautiful laces and flowers.  Last year I stocked up and was about to run out.  they hand dye all there laces and flowers and I got to sit in on a class today, I walked away so inspired to create and do beautiful things, So I hope it will come out in the next lot of bears I do for the last show this year!

Have a beautiful day Lisa

Vintage finds

I bought this at an antique store! for a bargin price
it is in really good condition and really large

the inside looks like it has never been used.  I really love the colour of this hat box
this cute little bag which did have bowls in it but I only wanted the bag.
so I left them behind

Vintage sewing machine case
it is going to make a beautiful display! as you can see from this photo
this beautiful old book for a bargin price of $2.50 it is the home physician! I don't know how old it is but it looks old

side view of the book it has beautiful detail.

when I got home this was on the door step! Just gorgeous.
Well today I had a really bad morning, so i thought I would take myself shopping and I also went to visit a friend.  Here are my vintage finds I had such a better day than my morning. So even through my day started badly it has been a good one for bargins and vintage finds. Had a lovely day with a special friend!

getting organised

I have spent the last couple of weeks working on my studio, and 3rd time I think i have it done, still a small amount to do, I have also found so many things I thought I had lost.  So it pays to clean. I have many plans this week to get things completed. I have also done some more studio photos and this time nothing will more and my son and husband are thankful for that they are sick of moving furniture in and out of the house! I feel this is going to be a large post today.
 I hope you don't mind. I had such a bad week with headaches and a migraine! I hope this week will be a lot better and I hope I will get some more work done.

One of my dress forms which is holding some baskets and a baby dress
this is the sewing table on the left, I have some old wares and flowers
here is a small amount of my lace! I love the way it is displayed this is also the right hand side of my sewing desk

I love the way these shoes look lined up together I have many more pair's, but I use these often for photos

right hand corner of my desk

last wednesday I did another felting class to do the feet on my very large pink bear. I just have the right hand foot to finish. click on the photo to see the detail.

here you can see the feet they will look fantastic when she is finished the left has been done I still have to shade the botton of the foot and the right hand side I will try to needle felt this week. wow my list just keeps getting longer and longer of things to do.

here is my something lost last time I seen this little rocking horse was about 2 years ago I thought I must have thrown it out.

this hobby horse just needs to be finished I will add that to my long list

this little elephant is laying around waiting for his ears to be put on
i love this little bed he is resting on
heres another elephant that I am hoping to complete sometime this week

This is my beautiful french cabinet that I have had stored in the shed so I am so happy to have it in the house
this cabinet I used to have at my shop and when I closed the shop I could not part with it.
this is my find of the week. Last week when i was at bear class when we had a lunch break we went to the second hand spot and this is what I found. What  a find! I think it was just waiting for me.

have a beautiful Monday Lisa
I am off to finish the house work! before I can play
