antique shopping...

I took so many pictures the other day, when we took a little trip to the vintage and antiques center. We drunk a lot of tea, ate cake and sandwiches. it was a really lovely day, i founds some great bargains and lots of wonderful broken jewellery which is great for making new and exciting things. I am currently working on a few new things, brooches with my illustrations on, i want to slowly bring back my illustrations into my work, i sent some of my illustrations to get printed onto fabric for my new dresses. Which is rather exciting i will be making the dresses myself, which shall be fun and challenging. A lot of people where asking if i had bought the caravan from my last post, i did indeed purchase it. I think it will be a while before i can get it looking the way i want it to, first i will be getting the stock ready for my new shop, i know i keep talking in secret about it i want to get it perfect before i show it to the world.

  14. I just wanted to let you know that your last couple of posts have really inspired me to go for my dream.

    I have recently graduated with a degree in Fashion and have felt completely lost and uninspired. However reading about your ideas and how you are being so proactive about them made me realise I need to work hard for what I want.

    I love your blog and hope everything goes well with your amazing business idea!
