unimaginable creatures

.

some recent market findings...these incredible critters are the produce of some 18th century drunkard for what I can see. Rodent legs, cat like teeth with stripes of a badger? Bendy spineless stoat? fox with orangutan face? I know we didn't have cameras in those days, but honestly, if you fell asleep whilst meant to be observing some nocturnal creatures, don't lie about it!

we found lots of cotton bags full of numbers. Some kind of game with dice I think. We thought of using them in our jewellery shop as a pricing code.
Also, for our Tokyo shop, some lovely old Christmas baubles and bird. I love the old ones, we have quite a huge collection at home!

completely unseasonal, i peeked into a box and i found these Easter decorations {has anyone ever heard of Easter decorations? not I} anyway they are beautifully made and very decorative. I might hang on to these and put them in the Bucket Tree nearer Easter!


coming up...
the biggest EVER new collection of RUST jewellery, oh yes indeed. I can't stop making and now have over 60 new items to upload to the online shop! They are still not ready yet though, but my deadline is December the 1st. Also, we are in the midst of planning some open days at the RUST workshop/shop, so you can just walk in with no need to make appointment. I shall keep yous all informed as and when we confirm the days.

Cheerio!
