Made and Found

Have not done one of these for a while. So thought Id share what I've been making other than the dishcloths. And things I've found on my travels around Johannesburg. This weekend we did some picking in my mom in laws back rooms (we've done the garage and moved on to a storage room filled with trunks) We found her old tea set, in the most perfect condition, still in its box, still with petrified elastic bands holding the cutlery in place. Amazing!

Its the most gorgeous jade green colour with little deco details and not at all like the crappy plastic tea sets you find these days.

I got around to making this necklace who's bits and pieces have been starring up at me from my work bench for months now. Some gorgeous old cufflinks, buttons, coins and chain from Brimfield.

The embroidered cushion amongst all the other sofa stuff. I've had orders for these....who could'nt use a cushion that tells you 'It's OK!"

This chair that I found at the Hospice store! Whoever got rid of this must have a house full of awesomeness.

The 'little dear' cushion is from the new collection of prints, tried them on nice thick linen and they came out really fab. There were 8 printed of each design so let me know if you would like one.

'Planes over spain' also from the new range of prints.

'Lobster' is something you've seen before but re-imagined into a cushion. Oh, and the tiny anchor on the cushion next to it was a quickie.

'Scully' at home in the lounge also from recent print run. And that's it for now, hopefully this holiday I can find some time to do some more 'making.' Have a good week all. xxx


  1. I just love the tea set and the necklace is gorgeous!

  2. Mia! Returning the love after your lovely comment over at my place. I am loving trawling through your blogs back pages and drooling over each and every shot. And your pins! Ah, so fab!

  3. Necklace looks fab, darling. Remember how fun that particular 'booth' was - could have spent 20 more hours, burning our hands on the charms, chain and coins baking in the sun. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  4. Please can I order an 'it's ok' cushion. Please please please! And a necklace.

  5. Sure thang Juliet. What should we put on your necklace? I have some great vintage casino chips that would make the most amazing necklace.

  6. I've been in love with the skull/pipe pillows for a good long while now... are they sold anywhere online? If, theoretically, I were to ask somebody to get me one for Christmas where should I direct them?

    Yay! Well, I think you would know best. And a casino chip necklace sounds awesome.
