|Thank you for all your recent comments on my blog...I'm sorry I don't get to visit many of your blogs at the moment, but my spare time has been taken up with all the wedding preparations (when I'm not at work.)|
We had a bit of a bake-a-thon yesterday, which was a very comforting day - the rain lashed outside, but we were cosy and warm inside whilst cake smells wafted through the house and the windows steamed up!
|I'd rather not show photos here yet, as some of my relatives read my blog, we want to keep lots of the special personal touches a surprise for now. Instead I'll share with you what I got up to on Saturday at my shop.|
|I'd bought a selection of fragrant French soaps which I wrapped in vintage wallpaper. I tied with vintage seam binding and decorated with dainty pink violets.|
|I love this dramatic black paper, but realise it isn't to everyone's taste, so I made another version using a 50's wallpaper printed in pink and turquoise.|
|These I tied with vintage velvet ribbon and the same little pink violets.|
|Another task was to package some tiny Edwardian collar pins that I'd bought at the recent Antiques Fair.|
|I printed several images onto thin card, which I copied from the book that Anna kindly gave to me last month, and cut them out.|
|I then wrapped a small lengths of antique lace around the shoulders of my lovely ladies...|
And fastened them with one of the pins.
|Each presented in a clear cellophane bag.|
(I've been bag making too.)
|Hope you had a lovely weekend,|
