Some red red roses.

Recently I found the forums on Folksy and I  have enjoyed joining in with thr friendly Folksy community there.
 Thismonth I decided to take part in the January craft challenge, the theme was Scotland and the final date for entering was today! Burn's Day.
And so in my usual style I kind of scraped in at the  last moment. LOL.
Luckily it isn't a competition, it is just for fun and to be inspiring and challenging.

After a false start with some very stroppy tartan fabric (which I ultimately abandoned), I decided to make a fabric brooch. I have actually made  hairclips like this for the craft fair, but I haven't done a brooch in red before.

So here it is my litttle nod to Mr Rabbie Burns himself, my wee brooch adorned with red red roses.

Girly floral and lace headband.

A lovely, floral hairband with a unique lace and ribbon embellishment, finished off with a textured metal button.


The beautiful floral pattern on the band was just begging for some delicate, girly details to be added. I think they compliment each other very sweetly.

New items on offer!

I have had a busy couple of weeks over here. I had a few orders to make and send to their new homes and I have tried to start building a wee stock of items.

Last weekend my little girl K was heading out for the day with her Granny and Auntie. Her sweet new dress was just begging for a hair accessory to match and so I whipped up a starburst flower hairband. As soon as I saw it I fell in love with and just knew I had to make more! I had enough materials to make one more  so I could post it to my folksy.

Isn't she sweet ?

There is one available £4.50 and available by leaving a comment here or through my Folksy shop link here

Some more new items for sale

I love this one :-)

Adorable, slightly frayed, pink polka dot, fabric flower. With a pale green button centre and hot pink polka dot ribbon detail.
This sweet clip is affixed to an alligator clip and would look adorable on both short and long hair.
The flower measures approx 2" and so would be suitable for both adults and children.
most of my clips are unique and wont be repeated exactly

Another new favourite of mine is -

A vibrant green and pink fabric flower headband, comprising of a slightly frayed fabric flower,in beautiful citrus green fabric with shades of pink.
A hot pink satin rosette and the whole piece is complemented by a polka dot ribbon detail.
The flowers are fixed to a hot pink elastic headband.
The flowers are approx 4" all together
This headband would fit a child or an adult

Happy New Year 2012!

Happy happy new year folks! I hope you all had a wonderful festive season. We had a lovely, but busy, yet relaxing time. Just perfect.

I was completely thrilled and super excited for Polka dot sweetheart goodies to be under so many Christmas trees! I didn't get pictures of everything as a lot of it was finished and packed up in the week running up to Christmas. Eek!

A few gifts in my "classic polka dot sweetheart" colour combinations were nestled in tissue and tucked into paper bags, just waiting to be opened on Christmas morning.

This loveloy girl has found a new home where she will hopefully enjoy plenty of time in the kitchen!
(good thing really, I almost kept her for myself!)

A few cup sleeves will be hugging some hot chocolate, tea or coffee this year.

And keeping fingers warm in the cold weather, but not too warm.

Lots of hair accessories made their way into those little paper bags, I am looking forward to seeing these little cuties adorning some cute little heads!

If you have found your way here after receiving a gift with my little card attached, then please allow me to welcome you into my little polka dot corner of the world. I hope you like your gift and you will enjoy following along on our journey!

May 2012 be a happy, healthy and prosperous year for you all xx
