Betty's Brooches

Two brooches ready for the Vintage Fair in Plymouth tomorrow. I had a weekend away last weekend, meeting up with a friend I haven't seen for far too long. I saw the two small dolls in a fabulous vintage haberdashery and toy shop in the town where I went to school. It's below the rooms that used to be my dad's office so it's in a building that has meaning for me. They bring back lovely memories of playing as a child and all the smiles and games of that time. I wonder where they'll go to live next and who will look after them...

Betty's Treasure

On my work table today...
I've been sorting through some wonderful boxes of treasure given to me by a friend.
Oh my goodness - there are so many lovely things!

I'm planning to make some medal brooches using the pocket watch faces…
and maybe some mixed media jewellery using the tins, clock hands and cogs.
I'm really excited about getting started!
