Today’s offerings come under the banner ‘Hanging Decorations’ – I am rather partial to a hanging decoration and they can be picked up relatively inexpensively all over the place! Most of these have been bought at craft fairs directly from their makers – all except this which was bought on Folksy…
From Dottery Pottery (sorry about the rotten picture - low light!) I love the colour and texture and although I am not usually one for “sentiments” written on things I quite like this - and the colour looks great against the purple of the kitchen wall.
Textile decorations are great and I particularly like this one by Wooden Tree…
Made from recycled embroidered linen and stuffed with cloves – it smells good enough to eat. Her work is also available from Glasgow craft boutique The Maisonette. This star is made from Kimono silk ….
I love these glass baubles – I have them hanging in my workroom window.
The colours are based on the Scottish landscape and I got them in a swap with Meg McGregor – a glass artist who was opposite me at Edinburgh last year. She makes the most amazing glassware and is a lovely person to boot!
There is a new shop in Great Western Road called The Life Craft – they run workshops and sell yarn, fabric and a few handmade items – I bought this ceramic bird bauble just before Xmas.
This is a recent acquisition – bought at the craft fair in Balfron last week. I love the colours and textures in this mosaic heart made from recycled china plates and cups…..
Jaine has just added these to her range and I thought it was beautiful – it is now adorning my workroom.
Last but not least is this gorgeous knitted horse –….
another fab gift from Caireen – she certainly knows what I like! Knitting, horses, hanging stuff and those gorgeous pinks and reds….all wrapped up in one neat package! Almost there – only 2 more days to go – I have to say posting every day is a big commitment and I will be glad to get back to my old slacker ways!
