The Floral and Reflections Collection is now displayed at Rocanini Cafe in Steveston Village, Canada. Beautiful!
While waiting for her grand daughter to be born, my mother went for a walk in a nearby park. This beautiful swan passed by. Now her grand daughter is four years old and this swan is forever a reminder of that special day.
Paintings by Shirley Pearson are destined for a gallery showing!!
We have created a mix of pearl and crochet for Christmas 2013. These lovely jewels can be given as decoration for the tree- and later hung from door handles around the home. A true handmade vintage Christmas!
It is soon the Christmas season...and with it arrives the festivities of annual Craft Fairs! Come by and see us at the Steveston Craft Fair in Richmond, B.C., Canada on November 30th from 10am 'til 4pm.
We can't promise that Gizmo our Andrea Lee Collections mascot will be there, but she will be very happy to know you stopped by!
We are just home from our first all day craft fair held in Sao Bras de Aportel, Portugal. Was a great day. Made lots of connections and ate many cupcakes from the stand next to us!
Was quiet on the selling side of things. Not many shop owners had much success with sales. But exposure is always a good thing!
We are keen to attend another soon. A goal would be to take part in the Country Living Christmas Fair which is held each year in Glasgow and London.
But at a few hundred pounds a table- we will be holding off for a little while longer!
We are now showcasing a fabulous collection! Shirley has been creating these stunning pieces in Vancouver, Canada. The originals are now available on our website. click here to view ❤
Do you create products that you would love to see on the shelves of major retailer John Lewis? If so, there are 2 weeks left (until March 10th) to apply for mentoring with Start Up Britain and the chance to have your product sold with this retail giant! A great opportunity!! Read more here
Today while I was out getting some of our 'to do' list done I passed by quite a number of gift/ vintage wear shops and... I had a thought. How about a european vintage finds section for our shop? There are some authentic beautiful pieces here from vases to chairs- none of which can be found on the high street outside of Europe. And they need to be seen, not tucked away in the little 'lojas de antiguidades' (antique shops). So I may start a collection of smaller items that girls would ❤ and see what I can do about offering them up for sale. So I got rid of a few items on my 'to do' list and added one very BIG one!
Over the holidays, I decided to have a good look at the books we have sitting on our shelves. This is my favourite time of the year- an open fire, candles, books and a creamy hot chocolate. Old-fashioned, yes! This photo is from my house this year...
