this was filmed at my parents house.


So, it seems I have been listing a lot (in comparison to jewellery pieces, I am well aware lots of nothing has been going on around here in the past couple of weeks) of textiley things recently. It was not a concious decision, but it is where I's interesting watching things change and fluctuate over time...always returning to the same things, albeit in slightly different ways....

Anyway, never fear jewellery lovers as I have happened upon some fabulous vintage charms, old jewellery, chains and things and will be constructing some fabulous new pieces for your viewing (and hopefully wearing) pleasure! So... keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of weeks! In the meantime you could just hop on over to the shop and see some new purses made from vintage fabrics and some vintage fabric brooches and plush hearts embroidered with some of my favourite song titles......custom ones are also available on request :)

The Oriental Magpie

So, before I forget to mention (again) some rather exclusive Lost in the Forest purses can now be purchased from the lovely new Oriental Magpie website along with lots of other beautiful things.....

Pussycat, Pussycat, Where have you been?

Contrary to popular belief I've not been to London to visit the Queen... I've had a few days off with sisters visiting Edinburgh, and then a visit up north to see my parents....

This week has flown by in a flurry of day job work....everything seems to be going on all at the same time, the last few days have been a whirlwind. The next few days I am half resting and half working (making 2 giant heads for a theatre show, currently waiting for papier mache to dry) unfortunately the half working has taken over the entire flat and I daren't get out my vintage fabrics. So, instead I am tying up loose ends, accounting, updating paper work before the hectic work begins again on Tuesday....where I am possibly working for 13 days straight...or more....if I get the job that I've applied for. If not, I get a week off visiting my parents. Either way I will be pleased!

Currently, whilst the heads are drying I am window shopping on Etsy.....a few of my current favourites
