Selvedges to go!


Yes, Selvedges to Go!

Way back in April it seemed ages away ….

but my holiday is getting really close!

Just finished a toilet bag in Selvedges to be part of my travel accessories.

Using selvedges is such a satisfying thing to do :0)

Have a lovely week!


Mary Poppins Rides again!


I would like to introduce you to my new


I love Selvedge Creations!

Most of the items inside the bag are made with Selvedges too ….

Tote bag and sunglasses case ….

neatly tucked away!

with space enough for a book to read, a bottle of water,

my camera and Ipod.

Mary Poppins two


One place I had in mind that was a  BIG MUST  to visit


You see the fantastic giraffe and elephant?

Well, can you believe that someone

drew up in a car, hopped out, put them in the back of their car

and drove away.

Pinched them!

Shame on them!

What could you say to the policeman?

Anyway, I wanted to go there desperately after being introduced to

Decopatching through Lucy at Attic 24

(November/December 2009)

She made the  L O V E  sign and made-over her lampshade

by using this fantastic craft called Decopatch.

So, when the family had trotted of to work I hot-footed it down to the

High Street to

The Pottery Place where lovely Grace patiently waited

while I changed my mind so many times as to just What I Wanted to Make!

There are so many options!

So many gorgeous papers!

On that FIRST day ( yes, I couldn’t keep away!) I decided

on the letters  L O V E  for my lovely family’s wedding anniversary.

mine was in wine/purples

I couldn’t wait to start it,

I couldn’t stop once I did start it,

then I wanted to do more when it was finished!

It is very addictive and therapuetic and absolutely Nothing is Safe

because ANY article could be improved upon by

Decopatching it!! ….. except perhaps crochet, well it wouldn’t stick would it?

(Check out their Gallery page)

Anyway, I bought myself a mid sized giraffe to take home – I had to change

my elephant for a lizard as Nelly wouldn’t fit in my case.

Why don’t you pop over to


and take a look for yourself …. they do post orders too……

but be warned …. IT CAN BE ADDICTIVE …. but in a good sort of way!

and now ….. Introducing …….

drum roll I think …..

Geraldine Giraffe

what do you think? Isn’t she just G O R G E O U S?

have bag will travel!


Well!    Partly for my Mother’s Day gift and partly for my

Birthday present, I was given the train ticket to spend a

week with my lovely family in Oxfordshire.

So …… my Mary Poppins bag and I set off!

The weather was just fantastic, and I had a wonderful time  –

my Bag worked out a treat!

Lots of room for lots of stuff …. and I found the little

handles really nice to hold …….

Next time, I hope to have a few photos of just what me and my bag got up to!

So off we go for a Springtime holiday in Oxfordshire :0)
