Polka cake plate!




I have wanted one of these for years - but as I have a fairly compact kitchen, we really dont have room to fill it with lots of tabletop trinkets, so imagine my delight at finding this lovely two tier cake plate (polka too - extra points!), which is big enough to use as a fruit stand - hoorah! AND it was an absolute bargain at only £3.99 from UK homestore 'Home Bargains'. Yay :D

Massive Shop Order!

This week I have mostly been.....making jewellery like a mad thing for a shop that I supply in Wales. Its a great shop, and the fourth order I have done so far for them :D

Here is a photo of the finished products all laid out, before I packed them to send. I hand draw, cut, varnish and piece together every piece of jewellery myself, so I have sore hands at the moment and am now doing a spot of web design to give them a break!!

Vince Ray plays Manchester

Last night I went to see Vince Ray and the Boneshakers who are a psychobilly band, fronted by low-brow artist Vince Ray.Im a fan of his illustrations as well as his music and the gig was excellent. My only complaint is that I wish I was a bit taller to see over all the 6ft men with big quiffs! Here is a photo from last night of them in action, and some images of Vince Ray's illustrations.
