Bits and pieces

Attempt two on fabric peony flowers - better but not good enough
Orange dahlias in a neighbourhood garden

A wall of Prestat chocolate in Selfridges
 Yesterday we found my 'mother of the bride' dress. Hurray! Another job crossed off the list and I'm pleased with it and it cost far less than I was fearing! What was weird was seeing that very dress in the Evening Standard's Stylist magazine on the journey home in a fashion feature on florals for autumn. No-one would normally accuse me of being a 'fashionista'!!

As usual we walked our feet off in London. But this time we were on a mission. No time for Liberty or John Lewis. It was great to be with Amy who can be relied on to give me an honest opinion of what suits and what doesn't suit!

Today I have some making time to make up. Sophie is in the shop again and it's my chance to get cracking. I'll report back to you tomorrow! Enjoy your day.

The peony looks lovely. Thank you for the compliment. Yes, I can't believe you don't already have an etsy shop! especially with those dolls. There's actually a short cut to finding out more if you click the etsy square (turn your passion into a business)at the very bottom of my right hand sidebar if you scroll down. Good luck x
