Last Market for 2013

Tomorrow I have my last market for 2013.
I go into this market with a happy sad feeling.
Happy because after this market I am on holiday.
Sad because I am not sure when my next market will be.
I think I am going to take a break from markets for a while.
Whether for 3 months, 6 months or longer only time will tell.

This year because we are going away from home for Christmas we
have not fully decorated our house or even got a real tree.
I thought I would share with you snippets of what we do have.

Master O's Advent Bag Basket.

The empty Advent bags around the base of the tree.

Master O's stocking.

This year I made Master O a ceramic star to go in one of his Advent bags.
I have always called him my "Angel Baby" even though now he is eleven!

I just had to give him this decoration from 

This lovely ceramic bunting was a present I received last year from the

in the world bringing Joy to others.

I wish all of you and your families a very Merry Christmas.

Little Birds

A few weeks ago I got together with some of my crafty friends
for a Christmas Lunch and Ceramic making (as you do).
The lovely Renee from The Little White Box
hosted this fine day.

I have always had a thing for little birds, 
you see them pop up on my creations every so often. 
So I just had to paint one on a Christmas star.

My little bird inspired Lizzie from
to paint us all a beautiful Robin each.

These little birds made me want to sew some more birds.
So here are my first "Lovebird" Ipad Cases.

Who scares away the birds ?
Why Mr Scottie Dog of course!

I tried something new with some of these cases.
They are one colour on the front and then a beautiful grey on the back.
