It's the little things


Don't you find its the little t makes your heart smile, for me it's seeing the smoke rise up from the Chinese hat on the roof of the lorry or the sun shining through the grass rainbow
I still haven't found the last orange bowl/bottle to fill the gap but maybe this year I'll stumble across something in the charity shops.
I've added an electric hot plate to the kitchen, as I don't like using the gas oven...it works a treat.
I even added a small travel electric kettle too for friends when they come to stay. (Hidden in the cupboard so not shown) .im off to enjoy the winter sunshine on the decking this morning, maybe write a poem or two.
I've been busy sewing quilts recently, here's a photo of the three in my shop.

My angel

Here is a small poem I wrote about the Angel with me. I very rarely share my poetry as it's quite personal but I wanted to share this for a person called Karen who knows about Angels. Some people may not believe in angels but this is how my angel has come into my life.

You are my tears, my rainbow, the shiniest star,
You are the hand on my shoulder,
The candle in the dark.
You are the voice I hear in my dreams,
The face in frosted glass.
You are the one who turns the corner before me,
The smile I see in the crowd.
You are the warm breeze across my face,
The one who never leaves.
You are the arms around me when I need it the most.
You are my angel, my angel.

New year-new line

It's a new year and with it I've decided to add a new line to my Etsy shop. These Upcycled denim clothes will have vintage embriodery made by the Hmong hill tribes. Here is the first dress, it's a size 10UK/38EU. The vintage embroidery is in really good condition making this a lovely keepsake for you to wear and treasure. A truly great little piece of folk art fashion.
