Bring me sunshine…

Used to be the “Morecambe & Wise” song, didn’t it? Today and the last couple of days actually, have been lovely winter days here… Cold but sunny. In the sunshine itself it’s warm, but when that wind blew, I really felt the cold! Hence this photo:

Upcycled... and shabby-chic'd!

And as I wanted to “come out”, here’s the model, blinking in that sunshine!

It really was so sunny I couldn’t look directly at the camera because “someone” wanted clear shots! We took these for my Etsy shop – listed 2 pairs of long, upcycled fingerless gloves, with shabby-chic fabric flowers and gorgeous orange beads stitched onto them. Both are finished differently, both by hand, which is something I felt inspired to do after reading Annekata’s blog. She’s amazing – she handstitches everything she makes! Love that, and I must admit that I got the strangest feeling of satisfaction from picking up and handstitching the beads and the seams, aswell as making those little fabric flower embellies. How cool is that? 🙂

Here’s someone else who really doesn’t like having his photo taken:


Whereas this one just performs really well, doesn’t she? She could hear us talking and came to the window to investigate…

Most things (including the cat), are bigger than Millie. 😉

    rosie, die handwärmer sind gradios, die könnten wir hier auch gut gebrauchen;)

  3. Ooohhh.. lovely gloves! I’ve been wanting to knit a pair for myself (to wear at the computer – really! I’m such a ‘koukleum’- which is dutch and I can’t translate… the words ‘cold’ and ‘shiver’ together said for a person…)
    anyway, we had the same weather here and it’s COLD! I hope higher temperatures will blow our way fast! Enjoy your weekend dear!
