< Go Back


have made some perspex brooches and keyrings for lewes tourist information centre

and here they are….

i like the white speech bubbles best i think.



bah, oh drats, it is raining, and the path has flooded…. let us hope it doesn't stop people stopping by…wb_250

…for marshmallow rocky road, oat and raisin chocolate cookies, banana bread or lemon loaf…


here we are, the worker bees


snippysews smiling and waiting for their new homes


unframed prints, silver jewellery and badges, there has to be badges


shelves all dressed and neat and tidy


books waiting to be signed and read


silly old rain rain go away, come back another day.

now to sit down and listen to the singing detective sound track and try and resist eating all the cake!


… and before you ask, no the rob ryan vase and the clock are not for sale…. models own hee hee!




i was going to frame them.


but actually they look so lovely in the window


i am so thrilled and proud that my everso clever mum is exhibiting and selling her wonderful jewellery at my artwave pop up wonkybutton shop!


i just love these lamp glass chunky beads she makes


and she has made oodles of bright glass letters to for bespoke name mobiles

a bird, a girl, a peacock and a lion walk into a pub…
… i mean, no, they don’t walk into a pub, they are just new brooch samples.
have been tweaked a little since this stage but thought i would share- cos i am just that kind a gal x

brooches in stiu

 i found a horrid old lampshade in a charity shop.
horrid fabric that is, but lovely big shape
so promptly bought it
ripped and snipped off the horrid fabric (keeping the fire resistant fabric on)

i chose a couple of my wonkybutton snippysew samples to chop up and use
(the russian dillydollies and some christmas fairy decorations).

 using the horrid fabric panel as a template i chopped up fabric to creat 6 panel peices.

 then sewed it onto the lampshade.

the sewing was a bit frankenstien blue peter at times…. but wno cares!

then i sewed on a nice big trim on the bottom and a nice green and pink ribbon on the top and put it up in our little snug room.

i know i know, if you look closely at the middle picture, there is a little section of trim missing. i guessed, i mean miscalculated how much trim i needed… so need to go back for a little bit more and sew it on to finish it off good and proper.

but i love it! looks nice and homely and old fashioned, but with a wonkybutton twist.

very easy peesy, and very satisfying.

ooh, they look a bit like war medals.
is that a good thing?

this big fat one is for me
