Vintage and Beautiful

I had forgotten how many treasures I have to sell at our pop-up shop, opening 23rd July to 3rd August. I am busy pricing up tablecloths and fabric today, tomorrow I start on the china.
Make sure you come along, put the dates in your diary. See a few pics up for details.

Market Day Tomorrow!


A scrap of embroidered linen found in a charity shop this week caught my eye as I searched for increasingly elusive vintage style buttons. It was unfinished, thread hanging off everywhere, a few marks and holes but very beautiful. The embroideries are of herbs and spices such as oregano, rosemary, cinnamon and cloves. I salvaged enough to make four lavender filled hearts, backed with plain linen. They will be for sale on my Sweet Mary stall tomorrow at the Craft&Design Market around the Hawthorne coffee shop in Havelock North. It runs from 9am - 1pm.
