by the sea shore...


A little something made on a rainy Wednesday has safely reached it's destination...

A mobile made with shells, buttons, tiny seed pearl beads, linen ties, old silver trinket bits, a paper boat and crochet flower. Threaded with linen thread and attached to the inside ring of an embroidery hoop.

I was inspired for this project by Kristina's beautiful petit bateau kits and the lovely mobile in Meet Me At Mikes. If you haven't already acquainted yourself with this gorgeous book you quite simply must, it's fabulous!

Kitchen planning is progressing nicely with a major find this afternoon. Deserving of a post all it's own I think, back soon...

Thanks Sarah, it looks really lovely. Collected shells are one of my very favourite things. Very clever!
