handmade things I'm loving right now

emma lamb

Hello my lovely blog buddies! Today I want to share with you a few handmade favourites that I've got my eye on at the moment. Lots of useful and beautiful things that I'd would happily fill up my little world with!

handmade things I'm loving right now (Ceramic serving bowl Marina Marinski Ceramics) | Emma Lamb

Ceramic serving bowl by Marina Marinski Ceramics - I love all of Marina's adorable face plates but this peachy sweet lady is top of my list at the moment closely followed by this lilac lovely. A whole collection of these would make a fabulous plate wall, especially for a nursery since the colours Marina uses are so pretty!


handmade things I'm loving right now (

"To The Stillness" and "Grace In the Winds" by Emily Jeffords - I only just discovered Emily's gorgeous cloudscapes a few days ago but I was completely smitten at first sight. I love her expressive brush marks and use of fresh and pretty colours. Instead of moody cloudscapes they're light and uplifting, very spring-like. Lovely!

handmade things I'm loving right now (The 'wool' yarn bowl by Little Wren Pottery) | Emma Lamb

The 'wool' yarn bowl by Little Wren Pottery - There are many yarn bowls out there but I have to say that this discovery from Little Wren Pottery is by far and away my favourite. Simple and understated with the cutest 'wool' lettering detail. Plus this 'vanilla cream' version is the perfect colour for showing off any pretty yarn!

handmade things I'm loving right now (Tree Peony and Botanicals No.2 by United Thread) | Emma Lamb

Tree Peony and Botanicals No.2 by United Thread - Michelle's water colour paintings are always mesmerisingly beautiful and I can't stop admiring these two right now. Tree peony on the left especially, how gorgeous is this painting!?

handmade things I'm loving right now (Zipped Pouch and Mini Pincushion by Cozy Memories) | Emma Lamb

Zipped Pouch and Mini Pincushion by Cozy Memories - My lovely friend Sonia has been adding lots of gorgeous new wares to her shop recently and these are just two of my favourites. This simple zipped pouch would be perfect for holding my crochet hooks or interchangeable knitting needles. It is from her new line around the theme of 'pure'. A collection of simple, elegant designs created with organic linens making the most of this beautiful fabric in it's natural state. And her adorable mini black cat pincushion is along the same lines but has been hand stamped with a cute design she carved herself. How sweet is this!?

handmade things I'm loving right now (Weavings by Maryanne Moodie) | Emma Lamb

Weavings by Maryanne Moodie - I know I'm not the only one who marvels over each and every weaving created by the fabulously talented Maryanne Moodie. Her eye for pattern, colour and texture is entirely enviable so when she posted this pic of her most recent pieces on Instagram and Pinterest a couple of days ago I could not tear myself away from it's loveliness. Pure eye candy for me! Oh how I would love one of these for my studio, I'm thinking the pretty pink and blue one with brown tassells in the top right corner would be my first choice. So beautiful!

celebrating Etsy Euro week!

emma lamb

This week Etsy is celebrating all things european with their 'Euro week'. They have even launched French and German editions of their blog to go with the already established 'UK edition'. Yep, there are lots of changes going on over on Etsy just now and I think it's really exciting to see them take such a keen interest in their international community as the site has evolved into such a vibrant international marketplace.


So this morning I have taken a leisurely wander round the isles of that European corner of the marketplace in search of some beautiful new shops and along the way I bumped into one or two old favourites for you to check out...

I do hope you enjoyed the lovelies I picked out today and that you have maybe even found a new favourite yourself!?

How to make a festive 'Red Deck Garland' | Emma Lamb

There's a red poker deck on my desk today. We have A LOT of these strewn around the house as my man is an amateur card magician - hmmm, I'm not sure he's going to appreciate being called 'amateur', but what I mean is it's his hobby. Am I digging myself out of a hole here or what!? Anyway, the point is I thought I should find a use for these as they keep piling up. You see, a deck can only take a couple of weeks of abuse before it gets battered and not so great for performing tricks and most people he knows have already been gifted a few decks and aren't in need of more. Lots go off to recycling, but me being a hoarder and a crafter still sees this is a bit of a waste of something with pretty and festive potential. So feeling inspired I got busy making a 'Red Deck Garland' this morning...

Obviously a punch would be much quicker and easier here, but I don't have one so I had to make do with drawing around a circle template and cutting each disc by hand!

I used the back edge of my sewing machine plate as a measure to evenly space the discs, although I was in no way precise about this and just went for it! I used cream thread in the bobbin and toploaded my sewing machine with red thread so that when they came together they created a candy striped bakers twine effect. Very festive!

If you want the details I think I used around 50 discs, but lost a couple as my sewing machine snagged and ripped them, and in the end I think it turned out to be about 3m long. I'm quite pleased with the result, but I'm not sure if I want to drape it around the tree or hang it across the wall. Hmmm, well now I know how I'll be spending my afternoon!
