Retro Owl Fabric

I love it when you find gorgeous stuff in charity shops. I fell in love with this material straight away... I got one cushion and a pair of curtains, I found out later there was another cushion. Someone must have bought it just before me :)

Troll Plant Pot Tutorial

A cute little troll planter, you can plant a better plant which will look more like troll hair, I never had a lot of choice but will get something more suitable soon. You get the idea though... I am tempted to do this with my giant troll you could try it with any old doll or plastic toy though. Apologies for the rubbish photos it was very late at night and I rushed it all. I just had to make it straight away.

Get an Old Troll

Remove the Hair
Cut off Excess Plastic

Use a Stanley knife like Above

Poke Some Holes in The Feet To Drain Water
Fill it up with Earth and put a plant inside

How To Turn a Pot Head On...

I decided to do a little video demonstration to show you how the Lamp Cutie Pot Heads work, since quite a few people have asked how you turn them on and off. I also show you some of the other things in my Etsy shop. This is my first youtube video where I am talking and you can tell I am embarrassed hehehe

Vintage Japanese Pose Dolls

My mum had a pose doll up high on the windowsill when I was a child and I always loved it and wanted to play with it. I still have it but it's all moth eaten but it's got history. I was so happy today when I found this one in a charity shop. This is really cool it's a music box as well as a doll and she turns round when the music plays. So cute! These are vintage Japanese dolls and probably what inspired Blythe dolls. I might regret selling this but I am trying to keep my flat clutter free ( not doing too well but getting a bit better over time) This little beauty is on sale over at ebay here. I also found a very cute "rings and things" jewellery display you can see in my vintage supply shop on etsy (link) I hope I don't regret selling the beautiful pose doll it is so lovely. Just wish I had a huge house I could fill with all the things I love.
