NEW RUST collection!

29 November 2010

I'm very excited to present our new RUST collection!

We have been working on it for quite some time, and the collection just grew and grew as we kept finding more and more fascinating treasures! 
I wish sometimes I could keep everything instead, it's hard to make a living selling the things you love yourself...I hope they find happy homes where they will be loved and appreciated!
Most items are vintage one-offs, there is only one {occasionally we find more than one of the similar thing in the market} and if its vintage it will say in its title. If not, then we may be restocking at a later date.
Enough of my banter, go take a look if you can spare a few minutes! go to RUST shop > 

do you recognise these unimaginable creatures?  we found the prints in the market, Nao photocopied them, and AMAZINGLY, with a surgical scalpel, cut out the creatures so that they stand up. The pictures in the book really came to life! I thought they'd be perfect as a back drop to our photos, so I set about taking these in the workshop, and more and more creatures were appearing as Nao got really into cutting them out. I absolutely LOVE them.
Look at this moose...brilliant!

I did actually manage to cut {rather roughly!} a piece of paper with these miniature scissor...I can sharpen them to cut better, but Nao thought I should leave them as they are due to health and safety and all that, boo!

we found this tiny silver mug years ago, it didn't have a purpose in life, until it found that tea coloured quartz, now they make the perfect cuppa!

so, these days I am being super productive and bubbling with idea that keep me awake at night. I hope this lasts for a while yet. Only trouble is, I keep getting colds, one after another, do you think the two things are linked? Is all this creative juice leaving me open to cold bugs and the like? I hope not indeed, I've got more wax carving to do!

Also a big thanks to the lovely Daydream Lily who mentioned tales of a junkaholic on her blog yesterday, and subsequently, I got to meet lots of new lovely blogs...Thank you Lily XXX
