Perpetual Calendar

'A Perfect Day' is the title of this calendar, printed on the heart at the back of the pot. I had great fun making it and gave it to my friend for her birthday. A long time in the making, it was originally done in a different set of papers but the launch of these gorgeous Designer Series 'Cottage Wall' became an instant favourite of hers and the calendar was re-done. My greatest regret is that I cannot remember the name of the original artist so I'm unable to credit her properly. A true work of art that has been on my mind ever since. Everything in the pot is on a straw and supported by bamboo skewers poked into dry oasis. To hide the oasis, I cut a circle of paper for the top and tipped some tiny gold coloured stones on top of that.

Vintage Vogue card set

In lovely Lilac and Almost Amethyst, these 4" cards and box are a cut-down version of Jo's Desktop Card Holder which I have been trying to link to and can't. Jo's blog is and you will find it amongst her labels. This stamp set is my favourite of them all and is so versatile. Look back soon as lots more is in the pipeline ! Promise I will take future pictures in daylight so that the colours come out truer.
