Things have been a bit crazy!!

Hi there, Crikey, it's been ages since I last blogged hasn't it? Terribly sorry, it's just things have been a bit crazy and I have just been trying to keep up!!

Anyway, I'm back now and have lots of say! I have been making some more little frames to sell and have been trying my hand at wirework art!!! Yes okay, I'm a framer, but hey, there's nothing to stop me being creative too now is there?

Anyhow, I'm having a bit of a love theme at the moment, so I made a couple of little simple frames and then made some little wirework hearts from brass wire and sealed them all up - full of love!!
I also made LOVE from brass wire and have listed them all for sale on MyEhive and Etsy, to see how they go.....
Well to my surprise, the little heart in the white frame sold within 24 hours of being listed...So pleased with myself!! I am going to try and made some more similar love tokens and list them for sale too. I guess they will always be a nice item to give for a wedding, anniversary or just as a
token of love :)
Remember: All You Need Is Love!

Foxy Loxy Art

Okay, time for something a bit different. I was creating at home and have finished the first textile Foxy Loxy art ;)

Foxy Loxy is made using pen and ink on heavy linen canvas and all his socks and trimmings are made of deep wine coloured leather.
He's very busy and obviously on his way somewhere very important!

I have stretched the Foxy Loxy picture and made a complimentary frame to keep him safe (frame measures 22 x 30 cms). As this is textile art, I haven't added glass to this frame, so you can see foxy in all is glory (and so he can get out to eat and sunbathe if he wants to :))

So always wanted your very own fox? ....Now's your chance!

All, as ever handmade and unique.

Sometimes its nice to look at flowers....

Hi folks,

I know I'm aways rabbiting on about framing and my online shops, so today I thought I'd blog about something else.Now don't collapse in shock!!!

We went for a lazy Sunday afternoon walk along the river Thames this weekend and just relaxed. It was lovely!

We fed ducks and moorhens, stopped at a riverside pub for a glass of Pimms (evidence below!)and walked along the banks of the river, saying hello to people and dogs we met and enjoying mother nature's creations.

Here's some of the nice things we found along our way;
And to top it off, when we got home our lovely neighbours give us some home grown carrots to add to our roast dinner!! I love Sundays :)

Addition of more reclaimed frames on Etsy.com

Okay, I am going a little crazy and listing more of my little reclaimed frames for sale online.

I have listed a further six on my Etsy site today and have included a little visual guide for you below. I find it takes me so long, from making each frame to finally getting them listed for sale, and as each one is unique, I need to list each one separately.

I would be really grateful if anyone has any ideas or tips to enable me to list them quicker:) Anyway let me know what you think ;)
