When you first move into a home, it is all stations go with redecorating and adding personal touches. However, i always find that it isn’t until you’ve lived in the space for a while that you start really adding your own mark on somewhere.
Over the past few years I have collected cotton embroidered hankies. Some might find this odd but I find them to be delicate and romantic, and in todays age they no longer serve a purpose but I want to display my collection. With this in mind, I am going to make a curtain and quilt. Patchworked together, seams to seams.
I absolutely love the count down to Christmas and can’t resist an advent calendar, especially when they’re handmade with love and thought. I love these two ideas of hanging the little packages with twine from a branch and personalising each day with it’s own design.
I was recently introduced to the idea of using embroidery hoops as a way of enchasing art. It’s a quirky twist on a frame and they come in a huge range of shapes and colours. I love the idea of using vintage fabric remnants and building a collection for my walls, or using a larger hoops as a place to pin family photos and invitations.
I particularly love the bottom image, with the beautiful pink chair contrasting the simplistic collection of hoops.
They’re witty and would make cute little presents for your friends and family. What is there to not adore about these little treasures I spotted on notonthehighstreet.com?
The sign itself is handmade and framed in a beautiful vintage-look gold gilt frame. These quirky pieces are bound to add a vintage touch to a modern home, while bringing a traditional craft up to date with a twist.
