here is a sample for one of my playing cards- handmade paper made from bleached denim and old books, with the image heat transferred. I messed up the 6 at the top but the bottom one worked really well. I am going to try machine stitch on the ones that haven't turned out so well, fingers crossed they wont rip.

Setting up in the garden

Yesterday in the sun, me and my mum dug out an old clothes rail from our attic and hung our vintage clothing on it to air in the garden. Doesn't it look pretty?!

There is a lovely green mohair coat on the end, youll have to see that one at the fair!
Vintage slips, that blue one is yummy.
My favourite items! that crochet top is so lovely with a black long sleeved t-shirt underneath, and that gold and black floral skirt is gorgeous!!
Here's my feet x
