Cushions, paintings and porcelain

Tanya Williamson's popular cushions in Handmade Happiness
In the window Tanya Williamson's stag cushion and goose cushion
Kate Box's soft wool cushions, zipped bags and snoods with Jenny Stacy's dolls
New painting by Christine Burgess. 'Largo' £129
Jenny Stacy's large birds in the window
Niloo's porcelain trees. £4 each.
Last night I took these pictures in Handmade Happiness. 
The shop is lucky to have some exceptionally talented craftspeople. 

I love this new painting by Christine Burgess which came in yesterday. This multi-skilled lady also brought in more of her lino cut cards and some jolly robin banners she has made.

Kate Box's so-soft knitwear is always appreciated and a popular present buy.

Tanya Williamson just came in with lots more cushions. Tanya uses best quality fabrics in her own designs. She is obviously good at drawing and her cushions are popular and at £48 each, not too expensive.

Niloo also came in with these porcelain decorations. I love the way she covers her work with spots and patterns. White porcelain and grey-washed tree decorations all £4. The shop also has more of Niloo's popular black spot vessels from £9.50 to £18.

The lashing rain and strong winds have meant fewer visitors to Handmade Happiness this week. So I've been making. New are fairy boxes, Liberty fabric tree decorations, fairy bracelets for little girls and this morning I'm hoping to make some necklaces before setting off for the shop.

It's so good to be able to use my camera again. I'll take some more pictures of new stock today so watch this space!

Thank you Brenda. And thank you for dressing my window with greenery so beautifully. The window and the white trees outside the shop are being much admired!! x Jenny
