...Jeu de Paumes books. Blooming 'eck these books are pretty. I got my first three in the post today - Children's Rooms Stockholm, London and Copenhagen. I don't even have any of the little blighters but when I see how pretty their rooms can look it kind of make me want to pro-create...then the novelty wears off! Japanese interior design books mailed from Holland about rooms in London, Copenhagen and Stockholm. That's globalisation for yer...ain't it grand?
I love karaoke...'specially singing karaoke classics like the boys are back in town but changing the word "boys" to "bears". KP would choose a bear over a boy any day of the week...if a bear and a boy were to have an arm wrestling match KP reckons that the bear would win hands/paws down...unless they were playing Geoff Capes who is officially the world's strongest man-beast...according to KP.
Check out my lovely bears by clicking on the images below.
I'm after a Blythe doll by the way...any hints or tips?
I've been busy making bears recently...long legged bears. I've just packed the grey one (Lupin) off to Nottingham to her new home. It's been a great week Etsy-wise - I've sold three elephants this week too! One of them, Butler the Elephant (the fawn coloured one), is going to live in sunny California and the other two are going to new homes in Leeds...the Calif
ornian one is a custom one for a fantastic florist called Kelsey from San Diego...how exciting and glamorous! You can see her lovely work at: http://www.daisiesofourlives.com. The grey one is going to live with Helen and her family in Leeds...it's a Christmas present for her son Silas. Helen makes lovely clothes under her alter ego 'Pose Like Kitty' and sells them on Etsy...see: http://poselikekitty.etsy.com.
I am so loving all this Etsy stuff...it's totally satiating my need for creativity and the feedback I'm getting from customers is lovely...and it makes me able to justify my fabric addiction.
