How goes it with you all ?
At our house , children are, at last ! getting to sleep before 10pm………… I’m thankful for the cooler temperature ……..I don’t know how many more nights I could stand of scratching midge bites…..’cool’ water bottles………..fans that were too noisy and all the other excuses for getting out of bed and running round the bedroom !!
Ok then , lets shimmy on over to Folksy and have a peek at some lovely things.
NO.1 Caroline Mouran ~ East Sussex.
This is an eye-catching , tropical looking little hanger , sure to cheer up a dull corner.
It’s made with a combination of kiln fired crushed glass, silver dichroic fish and measures 18 x 8 cm .
Caroline can make you a hanger that’s a little bit larger with 3 fish for a small extra charge.
NO.2 Sarah Morgan Bridal.
‘Grace’…………it’s not often I’m stopped in my tracks when it comes to bridal wear but this gorgeous creation just took my breath away x
Grace is made of pure silk chiffon adorned with crystals and pearls, the bodice is hand ruched and Sarah will happily make it with or without a train. Made to measure, the gown would be with you from between 6-8 weeks plus delivery.
