I have already had a busy week, and it is only Tuesday! Yesterday I was setting up my stock display in the shop in Croydon that I am now selling in! I have a smallish range there at the moment but will be adding new items later this week, so do please come and take a look if you are in the area. The shop is called Dragon Dreads, and is based on the top floor of Time Bomb, 31 Hight Street, Croydon.
Also this week, I have been sorting through all of my lovely vintage pieces that are crying out to be incorporated into some new beautiful items. Here are some pics of just some of them.
I particularly love vintage ephemera, like this old French postcard - I wonder why it was kept for so long, but then ended up in a junk shop? My over active imagination loves things like this!
Lastly, I have a new listing for customised initial rings in my Etsy shop - they would make a sweet little gift for someone.
Bye for now,

I have been making a few new items today, with a view to Valentines Day coming up. I had recently bought some beautiful German Glass Glitter, which has a lovely old fashioned sparkle to it, so decided to use some of that. Also, there are some interesting "map" necklaces listed too - see my Etsy shop!
I love maps - they always seem full of promise to me.
Love Ailsa xx
