It's been raining hard outside since the beginning of the holidays but I am quite happy to stay cosy inside, drink a nice hot chocolate and look at my favorite blogs and Etsy.This is a selection of really imaginative felt products found on Etsy. I am amazed how much you can do with felt, from colourful pebbles to a Chinese take away and 80's tapes.
Colourful pebbles made using Australian merino wool from Reyaveltman.
Felt food. From top to bottom:
Fruit salad from Fairyfox, vegetables and Chinese take away from Buggabugs, cut fruit slices and mix plates from Umecrafts
December has been a very busy month here at Famille Summerbelle. We have been wrapping lots of orders for Christmas presents, so thank you all so much for your support, We are now taking a little break and enjoying some cosy family time. We wish you all a very happy Christmas and lovely holidays.
Some examples of the illustrations I designed for Sainsburys UK. You can find them in stores on the wrapping papers, Christmas cards and other products for Christmas 2009. As seen in print & pattern blog.
Thanks Melissa from Interior Divine for sending me the link of this beautiful dollhouse. It was designed by Caravane shop founder Emily Chalmer and wallpaper designer Deborah Bowness. I love the style and all the amazing little details. It gave me lots of ideas to design Ophelia's dollhouse...
You can find the article in January issue of Elle Deco UK.
Ophelia would love to have a dollhouse for Christmas, so i have tried to look around to buy but then I thought that it would be so nice to make it instead. I found this photo in Fine little day blog. I love the simplicity of it as it leaves lots of imagination to play around with the accessories. Now I need the time to make something similar. That's the tricky bit right now :) I hope to get that precious time over the holidays when the Xmas rush is over and work slows down.
By the way if you have some ideas for a dollhouse, please let me know!
Already December. I love this time of year. I can hang more fairy lights around the house (i always keep one all year round on the kitchen mantel piece as I love the soft light). Simon has already bought THE British handmade Xmas pudding at Ophelia's school fair last weekend. Next step the Xmas tree and getting all the presents! I'm going to order them all online this year as I can't see myself going in busy shops with newborn Lucien. That's the Xmas paper cut I did for friends and family.
