On the up...

Front page treasury today!

(screenshot by poppylove herself.)

A beautiful selection of lovely plum and pepper coloured things from the delightful poppylove- who makes lovely confectionery-like treats...these Moroccan lace earrings are making my mouth water, you could almost slip them in your mouth and taste rasberries. Probably better to hang them from your ears though. :)


I'm not in the treasury any more by the look of it; I was on as a reserve. How does reserve work? When something sells you slip in, and you're replaced when you sell? I don't know! At any rate, it's still wonderful. Thank you to those of you who were kind enough to write and let me know.

I've been updating the shop again today- a framed box assemblage that's been sitting around forever and a day, and a lovely trinket scattered wrist cuff with a gorgeous confimation medallion I've had trouble letting go of!



The tiny fragment of red cotton from it's original mounting (click the picture to see) just floors me with delight. I am so attached to these things...

There's more to come later, so many tattered treasures who have all had their picture taken and are lined up like good soldiers on my desk, waiting for my mind to concentrate for more than 5 minutes and list them.


The weather today was wonderful, just to brag- half the temperature as yesterday. At one point I had to trade my skirt for pants, because I was cold. Rejoice! In celebration, have a random shot of the work table.


My friend Phoebe gave me these red transferware teacups for Christmas, I love them to bits! (They have saucers too.) The scissors are thrifted find- I should post images of my scissor collection one day, there's quite a few and I use them all. I collect Union jacks as well...what do you collect?

Collections just make my day! Beautiful work! I just love the cuff, so stunning, you find the most amazing trinkets. I collect letters and notes people have dropped on the ground (shopping lists are great), I'm also working on my collection of typewriters and copies of Great Expectations. Hope you are having a lovely day.

Well, I just can't stop w/your stuff! I'm happy things have cooled off for you, heat is just misery for me too.

The photograph of the tea cup is beautiful.
