As promised, the Christmas tree decorations return. They are more than ready to be admired and taken home 🙂
’tis the season… to be creative again. More decorations are still in the process of making.
A tree in a tree?! – you would ask. Well, yes; mainstream is so boring 🙂
If you’re interested in having one (or two, or all of them), OR even have a request for a personalised one, give me a shout. 🙂
It’s been a while since I last painted a wooden box and personalized it so that it delivered the expected joy to its receiver…
On this occasion, I thought of a friend of mine who wants to save enough money to move to London, but, somehow, she constantly stumbles upon this-and-that and she’s taken one step back, one step behind the ‘schedule’. I felt the need to motivate her and remind her that dreams, once decided upon fulfilling them, must be accomplished.
And so, since blue is her utmost colour, I decided to offer her this money box as a birthday present:
And since I was on it, I wanted to touch a tender spot and so I made her a matching necklace:
The reference made to her blog and the fact that she loves butterflies were the Achilles’ heel I was aiming to hit all along! (evil laughter)
I’m hopeful that in due time she will have no space left for another coin/note and that she will take her wing to London. You only live once, why not make the most out of it?!
Our first visit to Madeira was in November 2013, in Funchal (the capital) and here we find ourselves once again, exploring the rest of the island.
Not only was it cheap to fly and stay here, but this place is wonderful, starting with its scenery and people, and continuing with its dishes and drinks.
Porto Moniz is the northwestern point of the island and it’s got some amazing lava swimming pools and wild hills full of green.
Souvenirs are a must when it comes to preserving memories, so, as a proper tourist, I bought some gifts for my fridge.
This is the place you’d want to go to if you are craving for a true culinary experience, wine tastings in the morning and warmish weather even in the cold months of the year.
As I’m working this Christmas, I thought I might be a good fairy Handmademother to the other girls and…
… have them pick out their favourite colour! What more could one want for Christmas, if not some handmade jewellery?!
You working today as well?! – Hope you’ll enjoy yourselves, nevertheless 🙂
Since moving houses and falling in love with this one I live in right now, everything I made out of clay was in the shape of a house. 🙂 Here are some of my fave ones: Couldn’t help myself, I had to, I just had to!
Is it a muffin, a cookie, is that mint and cream? – you might break your teeth while trying to find out 🙂
This is the house…
… they like to play in.
A more traditional approach.
And now it’s raining… But it sounds as if 3 people are opening their pressies at the same time… which reminds me… I’m gonna go and open mine now! 🙂
Have a warm day, y’all!
The first ‘fresh’ one will be sent to Romania as part of the Christmas swap.
More decorations in various colours and ribbons are in the process of making 🙂
