Last week I chanced upon the most beautiful vintage flower fairies book (by Cicely Mary Barker) from the 1940’s. The illustrations are exquisite. I won’t deny it I’m a lover of all things magical and flowery so the minute I set eyes upon it on the shelf, my heart sang. It was my initial idea to frame each individual flower fairy and sell them as collectors items in my shop. I know they would sell and I would make a considerable profit but I literally CANNOT part with them. The pound signs in my eyes couldn’t sway my heart. They capture my imagination and speak to my inner child. I’m going to hang onto it for now and keep it for a very special little girl (ME! oh alright then, D) but I thought I’d share a few with you.
Oooh it’s late and I know i’ll be regretting this when I hear at little ‘muuuuummmy’ at 6am. But i’m so excited I just can’t stop… I’ve launched my new shop. There are only a few creations on there right now but lots more to follow shortly (when I have the time to put them online). Vintage prints, jewellery, my own artwork and craft work! Now that is a good start to the New Year! Cheers! x
