Vintage Tea


Pretty China

Its all about the Vintage Tea, the china, the music, the atmosphere and the craft. How these elements can combine to bring people together and stimulate a stronger sense of community and interaction something valuable.

Lovely book filled with inspiration.

Exploring this concept further and integrating it with a passion for crafting :)


Lovely Owls crafted using fabrics found by rummaging through my collection. Craft provides the feeling of satisfaction in using thought to put together something from pieces to product... in this case lovely fabric and buttons to owl.

"It is not enough to know your craft - you have to have feeling. Science is all very well, but for us imagination is worth far more."

New Year Crafting - time for change...

"Skills you learn whilst knitting can also be highly effective in education and industry. Forward thinking teachers are using knitting in classrooms and finding it facilitates learning, controls disruptive behaviour and is ideal for kinaesthetic learners. It also teaches patience and perseverance which is important in this world of instant gratification. "

A little bit of a New Years Day project crafting my gloves, finally finished them and very happy with the results. The new year presents an opportunity for change to try new things, push ideas and evaluate although daunting exciting times ahead. Along with a resolution to try and blog more, see more and be inspired more lets hope this happens.
