hi everyone, God it's cold today! I don't know about you but I am a little sick of the 's' word now, we don't have much left and hopefully it won't return. Yes it was pretty and lovely but it was also massively inconvenient for many, lethal for some and I personally was a stir crazy mummy by the end of last week as getting out with the Boo was very tricky! I know from reading some of your blogs the snow was inspirational and also had some of you literally trapped in your homes!
Anyhow, something that arrived yesterday to brighten up the grey skies were these beauties.
Aren't they lovely? They are made by a lovely woman called Victoria who lives in Scotland and sells here wares on etsy under the name of re:made. here is a link to her shop.
I came across her stuff when browsing etsy, looking for a Christmas gift for my sister and saw a pair very similar to these but in bright pink that were just the thing. When they arrived I was so taken with them I contacted and asked Victoria if she would make me a pair in red, should she come across the materials to do so - all her stuff is made from recycled jumpers and knitwear which she gently felts and turns into a whole range of stuff, brooches, teacosies, mug warmers, scarves and wrist warmers. Dom even bought me one of her cosies for Christmas which was also one of my favourite presents (oh the boy done good this year!)
Anyhow, true to her word, she found a red jumper and crafted these especially for me and I LOVE them. especially the flower details :-)
Apols for blurred photo here, trying to get snaps done with Jake grizzling in background (teething!) is not easy!
I also like the way she packages her stuff up - simple but effective!
What's really perfect about these is that when pram pushing but needing to answer my iphone with it's touch screen, fingered gloves don't work - the phone needs your finger to actually touch the screen, or so it seems, and by the time you get the phone out of pocket/ bag and hoick a glove off the caller has rung off - highly irritating! So these are just the thing. And soooo stylish too! I bet I never see another person wearing them which also satisfies me greatly! I did try to take a photo of me modeling a warmer but as you can imagine it was tricky and by the time Dom was back from work the light wasn't right at all.
So get yourself along to remade's shop on etsy and have a look, and maybe a wee purchase!
Anyhow, we are off to the cottage this weekend so I may well blog from my phone if I see anything I just have to share with you guys...
