Etch a Sketch …

In the middle of lockdown arty fartyness The Husband has some fun with a glass etching set that was my very cool Xmas pressie off Little Sister.

My plan was to cut some vinyl stencils for the etching but of course The Husband, being an artist, had way better ideas. He freehanded this traditional tattoo style anchor and waves onto a glass pane which separates our back porch from the dining room.

And to think I was going to hang a curtain there huh?

Tattoo Style Glass Etching

Vintage inspired earrings… 


We are starting to stock up with lots of goodies ready for that C word coming our way (in 103 days to be exact). We are booked in to have a stall at a couple of Christmas craft fayres and are busily gathering our quirky and unusual vintage inspired wares. 

One of the cute things we are selling is “Design Your Own” earrings and necklaces.  You can pick from a wide range of vintage inspired, quirky charms to make your own jewellery. 

I have been wearing the vintage Singer sewing machine earrings for a few weeks now and have had so many compliments. The charms are made from ‘Tibetan Silver’ – a metal similar to pewter that is mixed with silver. The earring hooks are silver and the necklace chains are silver plated ( and I have a few silver chains too). 

You can pick from; Singer sewing machine, cherries, owl, swallow, crocodile, feather, steamboat, feet, dog bowl, Cinderella carriage, camera, pineapple, anchor, ships wheel, pistol, dragonfly, flamingo, wonky clock, fish, key, Welsh dragon, shoe, handbag, purse, postcard, ‘follow your heart’ or ‘Best Friends’ …

You don’t have to buy a matching pair … mix it up a bit to be different huh? 

I think  I’m going to have the cherries next!
