Newton Abbot Craft Fayre booked

I am really excited as I have managed to get a last minute stall at the 'Hannahs At Seale Hayne' Christmas Craft and Food Fayre on Saturday the 10th December from 10am until 5pm.

I have been on the waiting list for a while and I am really looking forward to this event as it was hugely successful last year and draws crowds from far and wide!


Please come and have a browse, it promises to be a brilliant event with lots of Christmas cheer and free mulled wine - what more could you wish for!

Read all about it!

Ok so I know I said if ever did a magazine rack again I would paint the spindles but I love the papered effect too much so I decided to ignore my own advice!

This one is slightly smaller than the other and rather than use NME cuttings I used current newspapers.  As newspaper is thinner it was slightly easier and created an almost papermache effect in places. I also purposely didn't paint the rack first as I wanted the dark wood colour to create a dark base for the paper so it didn't look too 'new'.

Although it is all newspaper it is still quite colourful and I think it would look great in a student flat or in a trendy living room!

Price £55
Craft fair success!

A huge thankyou to everyone who came to the second Crocadon Sawmill Producers Market. A fantastic venue which is being built up into a fantastic monthly market.  I was in the old barns this time and I'm looking forward to the next one on the 17th December as I think the Christmas atmosphere will be amazing!

There was a lovely atmosphere with people enjoying the BBQ and music outside and a lovely mix of stalls from amazing cupcakes and food, to wood, jewellery, artwork, plants, organic veg. and more!

I sold a couple more pieces, 'Tidy Bunney Fluffs' and 'B'ook-shelf (n)' and I had a lot of interest in my other pieces - so if you're still thinking about buying don't leave it too long!

In the barn

If you saw something you now wish you'd bought I can take a deposit and keep it back for you to pick up at the next fair, just get in touch!

Childrens Toy Cot

I was driving home from work when I saw this outside a shop in Modbury and had to stop!  I saw a smaller one in the summer but it was broken so I've always had my eye out for another.

I covered the cot in pictures from a large bedtime story book, it took a while as I individually cut out each picture but I think it's worth it - if only I had a girl (my son wasn't impressed when I told him it was his Christmas present!)

I love all the bright colours and the old-fashionned style pictures.

Close up
      H 40cm, W 57cm, D 32cm

(Please note this is for play purpose only - not to be used as a real cot)

B'ook-shelf (n)

I found this wooden bookshelf on the way back from a craft fair with my mum, it caught my eye because of it's unusual shape and dark wood and also the fact that it came apart - lucky because we bought it forgetting we had a car full of stock!

I decided to cover it with an old dictionary, using the letters b,o,k and s  (I struggled with k though, who knew there were so few words beginning with the letter k!)

Close up
     H 72cm, W 90cm, D 19cm

I love the ends of the bookcase and they were the main reason I decided to leave some of the wood exposed, I think it enhances the old, slightly brown pages of the dictionary.  Now it is varnished the bookcase no longer comes apart, I love that there are no fixings in it and it is held together (very solidly!) purely by the wooden peg ends!

Price £65 SOLD
