Today there was a some nice light coming into our flat so I thought I'd snap some pics of a few things that I've made, bought and received lately.
Last night I made this little Swedish Dala Horse. I cut the shape out of cardboard then covered it in some Japanese masking tape, which I'm totally addicted to. I really love Dalas, I've been saying that they are going to be the next "hip" thing on Etsy and beyond this year. I'm really hoping we can pop over to Sweden this year and I can buy a real one!
A couple of charity/op/thrift shop finds I got last week. Couldn't resist the little brass deer for only 50p and I love the map illustration on this Devon mug. I've never been to Devon, my Aunty used to live there when I was little (and living in Australia) and I quite like a good Devonshire Tea so I should really check it out one day.
Lastly, my mum sent me this fantastic set of Russian doll measuring cups for Christmas. It's funny how sometimes my mum picks the best gifts ever, like she read my mind! I love Russian dolls and I'd seen these in Paperchase here before and resisted buying them for myself quite a few times. They are very cleverly made, each half of each doll is a different measure, it must have taken the designers ages to make it all work!
