Ever thought of Black & White Bunting decor…

Where ever you are in the world, you can find bunting of all sorts and colors – if you look hard enough it’s hiding in the background of a photo, an advert or even in a film.

Bunting is a typically British decoration and is used on special occasions such as birthdays, wedding, street parties, garden parties etc..! But to tell you the truth you really don’t need a special occasion to decorate your home or garden.

Black and White” – These colors have gained a decor status – it’s now trendy and chic.

Check it out and keep an eye out…it’s funny how an old traditional decoration is still in fashion these days !

Bird Feeders

Bird Feeders or just a decoration? Both…!

Today I want to share my new ideas found in the internet during the cold winter months – which of course I then made and tested.

At first I was looking for new ideas and ways to decorate my garden in Spring & Summer 2016 – and decided to try out this bird feeder (below), which I placed near my kitchen window appx. 3 meters away, to keep an eye out for my neighbors cat!

A photo taken this winter - the tea cup and saucer are not english made, it was my first try !

Photo taken last winter 2015-2016 – the tea cup and saucer are not English made.  It was my first test!

The Birds loved it and visited it very often – especially the Blue tits and Sparrows.  The Robin and the Blackbirds did the cleaning on the ground, just below the bird feeder.

The bird feeders below are handmade with vintage English Bone China (Royal Albert & Duchess) and Tableware (Meakin and Myott Rialto).

You can now find the Bird Feeders in my Boutiques:

Visitors were able to discover all sort of handmade homewares, children’s toys, artwork, jewellery and of course a little touch of my British ideas.

The Creators market was delighted to have many first time sellers.
