wooden hearts on wedding table 1

Rustic Weddings

Rustic Weddings I love when a customer shares with me, what they have made or used a product for, or if its a gift, what their recipients said and the emotions involved. Its part of what makes working all the long and late hours so worth while! This is one of those shares and I’d like to share it with you (with the customers permission), of a beautiful wedding display! A customer purchased lots of the delicate wooden hearts and this is what they were for! To sprinkle all over her daughters wedding tables.   What stunning displays and I’m in […]

Or i had spectacularly convinced myself that he was smaller and would fit fine! But he fitted, he’s in, OK so he takes up a quarter of my workshop (glorified summerhouse), but he’s there and he’s running and i can just about move around him! lol Our wonderful engineer Howard arrived bright and early at 8.30am and if only I had pictured my husbands face when Howard opened […]
