I just thought I would share some images of presents I was thrilled to receive for Christmas! Many available through Folksy and Etsy!
First off this gorgeous print by Inaluxe, now framed and hanging in my studio! I adore it!
Next, a fab calendar by Cornish photographer Jo Bradford of Green Island Art Studios. Here's one of my favourite pictures, though I love them all!
This gorgeous necklace by Yume Martin.
This dear little fellow sits on my windowsill. By Northfield Primitives.
Surprisingly, my father-in-law came up trumps with this rusty old tin...
...which is filled with rusty washers, nails etc! He'd collected them from his late father's workshop, and they'll be perfect for decorating my driftwood boats!
And finally, a little bit of publicity! New magazine Oh Comely ran a competition for Folksy sellers several months ago - and I was one of the winners! Oh Comely is only available in selected stockists, but if you get a chance to read it, you really should - it's a brilliant, original magazine!
Well, that's all for now folks, hope you're all settling back into the old routine!
