This is my secondary blog and is designed as an archive of my handmade creations, past and present. I also add dates of fairs I'm attending, where I offer for sale my handmade pieces and also carefully sourced vintage goods. I hope you will enjoy taking a look, Niki x

A Quick Wash & Brush Up

I often see these ebony clothes brushes at flea markets and sales. They are a bit plain and ordinary, so I decided to give these two a quick makeover.
I glued an antique French fabric to the top...
And finished the raw edges with a narrow braid.
Now a pretty addition to a dressing table.
