Christmas Busy

After a fantastic week away with friends in glorious Tasmania, I've been non-stop stitching
& sewing for the Christmas rush on my burlap stockings.

The grey toile stockings have been very popular......love toile fabrics and the dark grey &
flax tones in this fabric are one of my favourites.




The plain embroidered burlap stockings are also popular....simple and rustic
with the texture of the burla,p yet elegant with the red embroidery
on the vintage linen patch.





Another popular choice is the red toile stockings.....






All stockings are fully lined and can of course be personalised with names or 
words of choice which is definately the appeal of buying 
from handmade markets such as Etsy!

The lovely Cheryl from Sweet Young Journey purchase some of my custom made stockings
before Christmas 2011. You can read her post here & featured guest post at Dreamy Whites.

Wishing you all a wonderful week and happy Thanksgiving to those of you celebrating this holiday!

warmest wishes


Holiday Time

It is possibly the worst time of the year to be going away on a little holiday with
Christmas fast approaching and lots of orders being placed.......

But we fly out tomorrow with two other couples for a long awaited trip to Tasmania......



First stop Hobart and the much anticipated Salamanca Markets with the
wonderful gourmet produce available......




 Then three nights in a beautiful European style country house near Cradle Mountain.....



Finally off to the East Coast to Freycinet for some romantic walks along the beach.....


Here are some of the places on our wish list to see along the way.......


The Vintage Rose shop in Launceston

Lavender Farm
to keep the boys happy a Cascade Brewery Tour 


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend & week to follow....
