More Ghost Furniture pieces and what inspired me to create them. These are not on the site yet as we are waiting for a long sunny day to photograph them - keep everything crossed for me.
A wine table in those gorgeous blushing grape colours.
A piece of shattered silk I nearly bought via Tara of Paris Parfait. It inspired me to create a chair using shattered silk from a Victorian skirt. Thanks Tara

You just know when you look at these fabulous terracotta items that they are going to be French. You see this sort of stuff in old charcuterie all over France and find that they were made eons ago. I am thrilled I found these as I want them some of them for my new kitchen.
All hand made and fired at 1000 degrees in a ceramic oven then hand painted. From Guenilee Courcoux
Things have come a long way since I was a knitwear designer in the 80s. It seems you can knit anything nowadays. I just wish I could knit an extension for my cottage then I wouldn't have to have another meeting with a builder.
All found at The British Hand Knitting Association

I really love this idea. D Garden Collection in France does some fabulous banners for people like me who can kill a plant by just looking at it. A great way to decorate a big plain garden wall or separate an area. I could hide my wheelie bins behind some of these.
When we had our offices and warehouse and two homes I used to be like a jailer and would have to mark my keys with colours so I knew which was which. 2 years later and I find this and only have one set of keys to worry about. Oh well.

Twentytwentyone has a fantastic range of products, everything just that bit different. I particularly like the idea of a portable campfire, the relief interior of the big lamp, the simplicity of the wooden clothes hooks and the piggy bank without a head.

Take a close look by clicking on the images at these fabulous pieces of needlework by Paula Sanz Caballero. I so admire anyone who can be an illustrator and put their talents into a totally different medium. Go and see more of her work I promise you will thank me.
