Brown paper packages, tied up with string...

Receiving packages in the post is definitely one of my favourite things, and having made a couple of orders over the last month for dolls house supplies, I was delighted to get most of them this week.

In one of my many orders was velvet in a 'soft gold' colour to replace the hideous stuff from the previous curtain post.

  See? This is what I was looking for in the first place!

I also got some  jewellery findings and pretty cut glass/crystal beads. I am planning on making some lighting fixtures of my own because I'm not happy with the ones I've bought.

 I've some more beads en route too - teardrop crystals for my future chandelier project. Excitement!

Lastly, I got a range of trimmings - braid, fringing, lace in  range of shades/shapes. That gold fabric in the background is the taffeta that will soon become a pair of fetching curtains....fingers crossed!

With all this talk of post and packages I was inspired to create a quick mini project while I'm working on my bigger projects, here's a preview:

But more on these soon :) x


  1. So many new things to work with! The colour of this new curtains is pretty, looks kind of cream in my screen, but seems more elegant than the previous one (even if I liked it, at least looking at it on screen).

    The packages and letters look really cute. I'll be waiting to see more of it ^^

    1. Thank you! The new fabric is soooo much better than the previous stuff :/ Can't wait to get curtain-making!! xx
