Handmade Monday, Lincolnshire Show And My First Treasury On Etsy

Happy Handmade Monday folks. If you don't know what this is please take a look at Handmade Harbour for all you need to know.

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend. If you are watching the final of the football tonight I also hope your team will win. I'm going with Italy as they beat England I want to show we lost to a decent team!

Anyway, this week I've been busy recovering from The Lincolnshire Show. Where I had a stand. The weather was not kind on the second day and it was quite a traumatic experience! I did actually think the marquee would fly away!!!! I also ruined a fair bit of stock as the ground got VERY muddy :( here's a piccie of my stall on the sunny day!
The shelving which is nicely modelling my bags was made for me by Drew at Handy Woodcrafts and what a talent he has! I'm sure you will agree it has displayed them nicely. I suggest you pop by and find them on facebook as well to see more of their amazing work :)

A selection of my clutch bags which can be found on my website

I shared my stall with the lovely Tinx Treats. She has a wonderful selection of handmade products - her Bridal collection is superb!!!! You can find them on facebook

Yes that is a flying dog modelling one of my Union Jack Bandanas! 

Etsy Treasury

This week I have also created my first Etsy treasury. I have been a member of Etsy for years and I decided to feature some of the wonderful talent there is out there.
For this, you have to come up with a theme and then using that theme link back to fellow Etsians and their product you have featured. I decided as it is the British Summertime (although it may not seem it) to go with a 'British Summer Theme' 
I found some stunning work, all handmade of course. A few of my favourites:
Lampwork glass bead set  (13)  -  Soft Summer Lavender Pink - UK SRA

              Lampwork glass bead set - Soft Summer Lavender Pink - By VasDea

Textile Canvas  'Where's the Caterpillar' Summer Home Decor, British Cottage Shabby Chic, Kitchen Decor.
Textile Canvas 'Where's The Caterpillar?' Summer Home Decor - By  DaisyLionsUK
Cream Tea Scone Earrings. Polymer Clay.
Cream Tea Scone Earrings Polymer Clay - By GiraffesKiss

These are lovely aren't they? Now for a peek at the Treasury! I hope you like it, if you do please be so kind to add a reply below it or on here to let me know! I hope it gets you in the mood for summer!

One last item to show you, I had a sale through the Craftsforum this week (wonderful selection of people on there!) it was from the lovely Anna at Sweet Fimo Heaven. Her pesky moggy George needed a new collar as he keeps losing his, so he has gone with my Skull And Crossbones Ship Mate Collar

What a pro!

Have a lovely week everybody!
