The festive season is more or less at an end for me and at last I can feel that I can breathe.

Don’t get me wrong, as there are many aspects of Christmas and New Year that I adore, especially spending precious time with friends and family.

Before I look to the year ahead I thought I would share some of my favourite memories from 2017….

The first half of the year saw my passion for painting come to the fore and I spent many a happy hour transforming some begged, borrowed and recused items.

Here are some of my favourites…..

Crackle finish candle holder

Distressed oval mirror (SOLD)

Crackle glaze occasional table and home grown hydrangeas

Painted and stencilled bureau (DISPLAY ITEM)

Painted bedside table, paper bunting, and decorative cushion

Joules inspired bathroom cabinet and mirror

Later in the year I turned my attention to handcrafting a selection of cushions. These were constructed from “free” linen shopping bags, off-cuts of fabrics, and mismatched buttons…..

Hand-crafted cushions

And when the sun shone I took the opportunity to nurture my garden, (and if I say so myself), with some very pleasing results…

Spring bulb “lasagne” (UNAVAILABLE)

Fresh herb planter

Summer patio planting (UNAVAILABLE)

I hope you enjoyed this brief look at some of my work from 2017 and if you are interested in acquiring any of the items shown  then please feel free to leave a comment on this website or to send an email.

In the meantime I am looking forward to being as creative and productive in 2018 and wish all my readers and supporters much joy and happiness.

Thank you. x
