Fave Etsy Sellers for June, Part 2

Seller no 2, (no order here, just as and when they replied to give permission to publish) is Valerie Ashley who sells under the exquisite name of Elysian Fields. She is a member of the etsy FAE Team and everything is fantasy and wonderful. Just up my street.
You can find her at

Just gorgeous fairy stuff. I really must get my wings serviced. These gas prices are killing me, lol. x

Fave Etsy Sellers for June - Part 1

Its been a long while since I did a favourite etsy seller feature. I have gone into my favourites page and re-discovered some sellers I found a while ago, and their new stuff just reminds me why I put them there in the first place.
First up I would like you to meet Katherine Cooper of `The Vanilla Design Studio`who designs and makes possibly the most technically brilliant and pretty jewellery around. Its hard as a jewellery maker to stand out from the others as there really are a lot of jewellery makers out there. Many are good but these just shout quality to me and her attention to detail is quite unsurpassed. I am very proud to have found her as she is a fellow Brit.
You can find her shop at
I have added a clickable link in the links section.
You can also visit her own website where there are even more goodies

Here are my pick of the three I particularly like. I am a bracelet girl, and would be happy to give them all a space on my jewellery hanger.




Katherine herself has asked to add this to the post and I am delighted to include it. Keep up the good work Katherine.

"A big thank you goes out to my fellow Brit Joy and her kindness in featuring me in her blog, one of my bracelets 'Snow Over Japan' is wait for, it's half price!!! for one week in support of The Etsy Yart Sale, do take a peek..."

Hey thats a good offer folks.

Football, football football

If you are like me, and not the biggest fan of football, you are also probably as sick of it as I am. We have only had 1 week of the euro whatsit thingy and still, I am told, have 2 more to go. England are not even in it! nonetheless my tv screen seems to be almost permanently green in the afternoon/evening! Whatever happened to the `no bloody point watching it now! philosophy we had when England went out. The only chinks in this are Dr.Who and Heroes. Some good reasons to persuade other half to turn over. Don`t think he has realised my ulterior motives yet. ;)

Short post today as I don't seem to have much say which is so unusual for me. Besides, I am just killing time until the doctor appears in place of grass.
Next time, some more fave etsy sellers. I have not done that for quite a while.

Yay, Sold my sofa

I am so pleased I have sold my sofa to a lovely young couple just moving in together. Things sometimes turn out just so. My new one is coming Thursday. I will just have to sew cushions in my studio tomorrow night whilst we are sofa-less.

I finished the first zebra bag, and its so cool. The photo sucks a bit tho because its so dull and grey at the mo (this is britain in June - ha)
