My Creative Space

My daughter really needed a new bag to take to her Irish dancing classes, and I thought that the Phoebe Bag would be perfect.

The fabric I used is some vintage stuff I found on holidays, although I have a sneaking suspicion it might be Ikea.

I used red gingham for the lining, and I like the contrast with the grey.

The bag is just the right size for her "poms", water bottle, phone, and a little lip gloss.
This pattern is really nice and easy to follow. what makes it even better is that Its also a free tutorial which can be found here.

And do go and check out loads of lovely creativeness here.

Flea Market Finds

Yesterday, Sunday, I found some beauties. First a selection of Meakin plates.

These are dated from the 1950's. The pattern is hand drawn so its a very delicate pattern.

I also found some more traditional Myott dishes. Myott bought the Meakin company at some stage.

I like the slightly grey colour on the edge of the plates, its not very evident from the pictures.


And finally I found a full set of Denby pottery. This pattern is from the 1970's. And I have to say I love the retro vibe of it.

The pattern has a nice orange glazed centre with brown rim.

I was super delighted with my finds this week. If you would like to see more finds check out here.

October Sun

In this beautiful green Isle of ours we dont see much sun...

This is what I met this morning...

At the same time I am reminded that Autumn is not far away.

"The trees are in their Autumn beauty, the woodland paths are dry. Under the October twilight, the water mirrors a still sky". W.B Yeats
