Lately I've been lucky enough to do some trades with a couple of fantastic people around the world.
It's pretty amazing that in this day and age you can come into contact with like-minded people via the internet, who perhaps you would never have had the opportunity to meet. It's a thrilling thing to be able to share gifts with people who i find inspiring, and getting parcels in the mail is also something else that brightens my week.
Firstly, An Autumnal lass for Taylor Kitto of Little Deer vintage.
A reflection of Taylor's image, incorporating her love for nature and delicate clothing.
This one is for Katie-Louise Ford, a Melbournian beauty who makes beautiful dresses fit for storybook heroines. (This red dress is one of her designs.)
And this boudoir scene (with enchanted paintings - the sailor is in love with the mermaid!) is to hang in the studio of Aaron Ruff - the talented man behind jewellery label Digby and Iona.
So, that's some of the work i spent my time on last month, and i'm glad they are going to charming new homes. If anyone else is interested in doing a swap, please send me a note. It would make me very happy indeed. :)
