Prima rusty teacup!

Hi everyone,
I went shopping at Fred The Needle in Penrith on Friday and spotted this rusty wire teacup (undecorated I should say, someone asked me if it came like this he he, no but I might make you one) . So it was love at first sight - I just had to have it and other goodies of course! There are a lots of things I should be creating at the moment like - stuff for the magazine and for my classes, but I just had to get this idea out of my head!! It used a whole ball of green twine, but it's worth it don't you think he he.
I used Prima Raspberry Chic lily chopsticks and Shabby Chic morning poetry papers plus their flowers. Now, I'm no bird expert so the name 'The Black Redstart' is just what I liked the sound of, it's from a book titled Birds, Eggs and Nests.

Anyway I hope you like it, please leave a comment if you do, as I love reading them.

Cheers Jane

Creations coming soon!

Sorry everyone,
I have been creating but unfortunately I can't share it as it's for the magazine, you'll see it in three months LOL. But... I'm having a creative weekend and ideas are flooding my brain, yes I have one!! So stay tuned.
I've been in Brisbane again, this time at the Print Blocks 'Creative Block', what a fantastic event, I met so many lovely people and made so much!! The classes were awesome and the kits were unbelievable, just need to finish them LOL. I've also discovered that I'm not a very good student as I talk too much in class and don't pay attention, Oops!
Anyway back soon.
Cheers Jane

A box full of old ribbons for $5 the box- paper, plastic coated, printed and fabric, they're all so yummy and have fabulous old ages spots and stains on them!
I think I might alter this weather station, but I may check out how old it is first, I don't want to alter something if it's very old, what do you think? I just thought it was cute and it was only 50cents.

I saw an old wedding cake decoration similar to this one on someones blog not so long ago and thought how beautiful it was, so how lucky am I to get one! The flowers are made from wax, it's has stains and aged spots as well and I just love it. There were two little gold baskets that came with it that have cr…
