Christmas Crafts!

Just a quick post to show you a picture of our stall from Sunday's Craft Fair.  This was only our second craft fair exhibiting with Tempo Promotes but we already love taking part in these events & hope to have a stall at many more.  Please look at their website and browse through the other wonderful exhibitors.

And now we have stockings!

We are really enjoying making tree ornaments in preparation for our Christmas Craft Fair at daisyfleur and today I thought I'd introduce you to our little stockings.  Made from soft brightly coloured felt, we have decorated them with pretty star sequins.  We've listed a few on etsy already but do please contact us if you would like them in a different colour and we'd be happy to do a custom order ;o)

Cutie alert!

My hubby was watching "Question Time" last night (a show I watch myself sometimes but we'd just finished a film so I needed a breather from TV) & I decided to pop onto etsy and couldn't believe my luck when I saw the treasury window was about to open!  I grabbed one quickly and had loads of fun picking items for my 'cute theme'.  Check out the result here and have a browse around all the lovely stores I featured - some more fab ideas for stocking fillers!

Treasury generates sale!

Yesterday we woke up to a wonderful sale and it was one of my favourite items - our little baby dress made from a gorgeous liberty print fabric:
We are thrilled to see it has found a new home.

Today I discovered the sale came as a result of being featured in treasury put together by Nauli who sells beautiful Paper Goods & dolls.  This Art Deco pattern is my current favourite but do check her store as she has lots of other appealing designs.

Autumn Leaves, Autumn Flowers & Conkers

I'm just back from a sunny holiday on the island of Rhodes in Greece and my mum (the other half of daisyfleur) is just heading off for a holiday in Italy so we are like 'ships passing in the night' at the moment!
Despite being a sun worshiper, I've decided to embrace Autumn now that I'm home as there really is no doubt it arrived whilst I was away. The leaves are an array of beautiful orange hues and I'm planning a walk in the park this weekend to kick my way through the fallen leaves.
To celebrate Autumn we have some lovely new items in our store which I've featured here today. The rich brown fabric & velvet ribbon reminds me of conkers and these little skirts would be perfect for Fall layered over cream woolly tights or leggings. The skirts shown here are age 4-5years.  Please click on our Etsy store to see a two more in age 2-3years. Jenny ;o)

Alice in Wonderland

I don't know about you but Alice in Wonderland is definitely one of my all time favourite books so you can   imagine the excitement in the daisyfleur camp when we got a custom order to make an Alice in Wonderland apron for a 20month little girl!  Our resident pinny expert Suzanne (my mum) created the lovely apron seen here & I made the matching alice band.  That's one little girl all set to attend a Mad Hatters Tea Party!
This assignment bought back happy memories for both myself and my mum as she created a gorgeous Alice in Wonderland outfit for me when I was a little girl.  I loved being Alice and have nurtured a liking for alice bands ever since.  I can't wait for the new film starring Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter.  He is another of my all time favourites! Jenny ;o)

PS Check out the little pic of me as Alice - apologies for the poor quality image but it was the 1980s...

Rich Reds & Regal Delights

Having awoken to the sound of heavy rain I was just beginning to despair of grey old London when I logged onto Etsy & received the exciting news that we had been included in a treasury.  I rushed off to check it out and was delighted to see the gorgeous warm reds and lovely eclectic items chosen by silverbeadsandclay.  I then spent a happy few minutes browsing all the other stores and my mood visibly brightened.   My favourites are the Twiggy wire vine crown & Nina Suede Peep Toes - would love to hear your favourites, Jenny ;o)

Craft Fair

As promised, here are some pictures from our recent craft fair!  We had a really fun day and made some sales so we came away very happy.....particularly as we had also purchased some rather lovely goodies ;o)  (which admittedly ate into our profit margin but sometimes its hard to resist!).  It was the first time we had a stall with Tempo Promotes in Lincoln and we found the event to be very friendly and well organised and immediately signed up for a stall at the Christmas Fair!

PS If you are interested in buying any of the items in our photos which haven't been listed yet in our Etsy Shop, please contact us and we'll be happy to list an item & reserve it for you.

NEW Flower Headbands
We currently have 2 sizes:
Baby Headbands
Toddler Headband
Larger Ones to come soon!

Snuggly Slippers

In our household I'm famous for my ice cold feet but my hubby is not a fan when I squish them between his legs to warm them up in bed! Now that Autumn is upon us I suddenly realised I had no slippers as last years had worn out & it was with chilly feet that I decided to check out what Etsy had to offer. I simply had to share the cosy delights I found! Admittedly the Baby Mary Janes are too small for me but they were too cute to leave out;o) Jenny

PS In case you're wondering.....I purchased a pair of the gorgeous blush crochet Mary Janes!

A bequest of fabulous fabric

Today I wanted to show you some wonderful new Autumn fabrics we've been working with. Suzanne recently went to visit her very good friend Joan up in Lancashire (also a keen seamstress) who has a awe inspiring collection of fabrics, many of which are Liberty lawn prints or Laura Ashley Designs. Much to our delight, she generously donated some of them to daisyfleur! All of them are gorgeous and more than satisfy our craving for all things flowery. They also visited a wonderful fabric shop (I was most envious!), had great fun rummaging & more purchases were made - I am determined to accompany them next time! All these lovely fabrics have inspired us to work extra hard on our Winter Designs for next Saturday's Craft Fair. Check back then for pictures of our stand ;o) Jenny.

A week of firsts

Welcome to our first post on our brand new blog! Actually its a been a week of firsts at daisyfleur as not only have I set up our brand new blog but I also finally managed to bag a treasury on etsy! I had so much fun making it and am seriously worried it might become addictive........If I manage to work out how to post an image of my selection I will do as it was full of lovely etsy treasures all based around a theme of polka dots & leaves with a some cute little animals thrown in ;o) In the meantime, heres the link to view it online - it expires in 1 day so be quick!
Hooray - just worked out how to post an image - another first!
