Purple Bride

The colour of Cadburys Purple seems to be very popular amongst brides at the moment. I remember my freind had it many years ago - with huge purple anemomes stitched under the toille of her dress and I hand painted her wedding shoes to match!
This is the latest purple posy I've made...
 Features, roses, poppies and peony...
 vintage costume jewellery in the shape of a shooting star, flowers and butterflies...
 Vintage glass buttons, fluffy fur and handmade ribbon roses
 ... and matching wrist corsage for bridesmaid/mother of the bride...

If you can't live without them you can buy them from my website at

Cool Britannia!


I've been thiking about the Queens Diamond Jubilee
and what I should do to mark this special year.
I've decided that I am going to make a limited edition of
60
Jubilee Corsages
Each one will be unique, a one of a kind design,
they will all be red, white and blue
and will use materials, ribbons, buttons and beads from the last 60 years
in all of them!
Some will have a vintage feel, others will be contemporary,
Some will be for everyday wear (to the Olympics maybe to spur on our team?)
and some for very special occassions (Jubilee Ball or Night at the Proms).
I've also decied to give 10% of all sales on these corsages
to a charity.
If you want to nominate a charity then please
leave a comment underneath this post).
You can buy them from my Folksy shop

Burlesque Bride or Prom??

I'd just finished watching Moulon Rouge when I started to make this corsage - I love that film and all the gorgeous burlesque and bohemian clothing!

This corsage would be great for either an alternative groom or bridesmaid at a wedding and would look equally as gorgeous setting off a prom dress.
Made from a very realistic looking lily in deep pink against black feathers.
A spray of black beads, netting and glass beads finish it off.
This is a button hole corsage at the moment but i can add a brooch back or make it into a wrist corsage or hair clip if desired - please just message me.
Measures 27cms at longest point and 15cms at widest point.
£12.00
Buy it from my Folksy shop at

Daffodils, Daisies and Lemon Cup Cakes!!!


Spent part of my morning at La Vida Vintage today in Lincoln,
a vintage shop that's only been open since December 2011.
They serve a mean lemon cupcake and cup of tea - trust me - I had two...
and was pleased that there were only two there,
or heaven knows where it may have ended!!
It was (almost) a shame to eat them as they were decorated
soooooo beautifully.
Wish I'd had my camera with me so I could show you what they were like.
Check out La Vida Vintage if you are local -

When I returned home I was feeling all springlike (and full up!)
and was wishing that I'd bought a pair of vintage daisy clip on earrings that I saw - If you're reading this Rachel please put them to one side for me :-)

Just loving daisies, daffodills and lemon cup cakes at the moment and continued with my "Spring" day and made the wrist corsage above.
Fabric flower petals, bright yellow vintage button to it's centre
lots of frou frou and mounted on a satin ribbon.
If you can't live without it...
as always, in my Folksy shop at

Fit for Downton Abbey


OK... I know it's not real... and it's only a TV programme... but I am soooooooooo excited about Mary marrying Matthew in Downton Abbey, and when I came across the wonderful brooch to the middle of the posy - I built a Downton Abbey themed posy around it.
Hope you like it as much as I do!



I have used both vintage and antique jewellery, buttons and dress trim in it's construction.
The central brooch is left unfixed to the bouquet (so that you can unpin it each year and wear it on your anniversary, or other special occassions, to remind you of your special day).
There is a small gold glass button to the centre of each rose. 




A real silver thread, dress trim, from the 1930's edges each rose and over time this trim has gained a wonderful goldish patina. Mother of pearl buttons and clear glass buttons fill any gaps.
This is a very special, one of a kind, posy - just waiting for a "Mary" to marry her "Matthew" in true Downton Abbey Style!

Only one of me in the whole wide world!
