Baby Blue and Toile

I love this sweet Baby Boy Set
The Moses basket has soft cotton toile details.

I love the crown, so tall and majestic.

I like using these padded ovals, 
they keep the curtain up a bit to give it more texture.

I used pure cotton inside the basket
 for baby's comfort.

Details of the crown..

This is our new wrought iron baby bed.
I displayed mums bed-cover in it.

I hope you have a great week,

Our New Adventure..

For the past twenty years or so I have been 
creating and stitching in my spare bedroom, 
corridor and in one home on a closed balcony..

Now, thanks to social media and a very kind lady
who posted all my pictures on Instagram,
I have more orders than I can handle.

My daughter Nadia had a great idea and 
suggested we rent a warehouse and expand 
the business.
Now after a few months of a crazy amount of paperwork!!
we finally opened and the best of all.. 
my daughter joint in, she does all the paperwork, handles
all communications and even enjoys stitching..

The container with our auction finds has arrived and 
is giving the big space a homely atmosphere.
When I find some free time I will paint and re-upholster 
some furniture and show you our finds.

The cream and green set is for a new mom-to-be,
This colour green is such a nice shade.

All cream and beige sweetness.

I love this cute small tissue box.

This wrought iron baby bed is back with 
a few new additions.
The sides used to have a curve inwards, 
to keep the skirt into place.
The new model has straight sides and now a few flowers
on the bars keeps the skirt from sliding down.

I hope you have a wonderful week.

Perfume Bottles

Today I would like to show you
my cute perfume bottles

They are so much fun to make!
How about the grey quilt?
I love the colour, it will look so nice with 
my lace and pink silk bed-throw.

These days I have many requests to make 
fancy baby-wraps.
All cotton with a little bit of lace..

Next on the list were a few cushions..

and some tissue boxes.


On this cushion I used a vintage doily.
I love the lace on the edge, it has the perfect 
shade of pink.

I hope you have a lovely week.

I am still here..

I haven't tiptoed away..
I'm still here, very quiet I know..
but work has been going on in a very fast pace..

I can hardly keep up with my orders,
so now we ( my daughter and I) are opening 
our very own warehouse/ shop/ workshop..
I am so excited about that!

I have been stitching and crafting for at least
twenty years and I have outgrown my 
spare bedroom a long time ago..

I am hoping it will all come together 
in two months time, yay!!
fingers crossed..

These Moses baskets are still one of my 

I found this new lace to pull ribbon through,
it gives such a nice finish.

Not to forget a matching baby nest.

I hope you have a lovely week.

Happy Autumn, please visit 
Nelly to enjoy the 
smells of autumn in the forest.
