Hello!Not much work has been completed in the house of Annie this week as I've been spending time with my lil man before he starts reception at BIG school!! Have been celebrating as Husband has started a new job too..It will mean that we get a much more better quality of life as he will be at home at the weekends and working much better working hours too!!
Here's a picture of a vintage tiara and clip that I have made for my good friend as a present for her wedding. The diamantes are around 60 yrs old and the brooch about 50 yrs old.The clip is made from another vintage brooch with a gorgeous pair of earrings from the 20's!
This end of the year of my most fave, you still have some sunny days here and there, the evenings still hold lots of daylight but allow you to snuggle and get cosy in a blanket! Hence why Ive started to keep mine about to hide my feet under to avoid turning the heating on Just yet!! ( by turning the heating for me means summers officially over!!) And although the hats and scarves haven't quite been necessary these floral pretties had to be bought to wear with a cardie or light jacket! ( Matalan and Primark bargains!!)
It also does tend to influence my designs too...Colours are muted, olive green, burnt orange & sometimes even purple creeps its way in somewhere too...This is my display in my space i rented, from Last year...Of course a pumpkin naturally finds its way into the scheme of things!!
Basically this Thomas Kinkade painting sums up this time of year...the summer bedding plants are still in bloom but the leaves are orange and everything is hazy....(oh to live in a Kinkade Cottage!!)
Until next time...have a great weekend!! I'm off to enjoy our first weekend together in a long time!!
