What I Always Wanted updates

I've been busy updating my shops with new items including colour variations of some favourites like these mini rows of hearts, and triangle spear earrings.  Both now available in golden brass or silver...along with other goodies. ;) Take a peek at the new updates in my WIAW shop.



I've had such a lovely time at my Castlefield fairs.  Thank you to all my lovely customers, friends and fellow stallholders who make them super duper lovely!  Looking forward to the future dates as I'll be a regular seller and will be trading each 1st Saturday of the month.:)

 Beautiful old keys.

 I love flowers and pop them in old bottles as vases on my stall (and around my house).  Current favourites are anything yellow with lavender and rosemary added from my garden.

 These cases have vintage brooches in during the day, and are good storage when packing at the end. ;)

A bit of stock prep. ;)

Tatton Flower Show 2014

Tatton flower show is always a sunny day for me.  This is my third time visiting the show, and each time I've been inspired by the beauty of the gardens, and by the knowledge of the exhibitors.  However, this is the first time I've seen Monty Don!

 Planting for bees.

 A ferris wheel where every other seat was filled with flowers.

Ah, clematis.
 Pretty little astrantia flowers.

 Yum, churros!

 I made a beeswax candle at one of the stands.

 Beautiful chive flowers.

 Purple verbena.

Blue skies.

...and the man himself, the lovely Monty Don!

Victoria Baths

This month I had a table at one of the most beautiful buildings in Manchester, Victoria Baths.

There were some lovely stalls and people, and I was very lucky to have some super duper friends visit me too ;)  I'm hoping they'll have me back for the next one!


The last photo is courtesy of EmmyC as I was silly and didn't take a photo of my own table.  Ooops, thanks Em ;)

Coral and Bone

I'm so excited to have my pieces stocked by beautiful new site Coral and Bone They specialise in 'evocative and eclectic products which feel like treasure'...very lovely indeed.  Along with jewellery picks they have beautiful homeware and vintage pieces.

Work in Progress

Cleaning up lots of beautiful old keys today. It's making my fingers hurt, but it will be worth it.
