Quick Cake Stand Tut

Here's a quick project to put together, using spare vinyl records and some vintage vases.  This cake stand is made from stuff you probably already have at home. 
It can add a touch of whimsy to your table setting.  Use it to serve delicate cakes or biscuits.
You will need 3 vinyl records in different sizes 33-1/3 RPM, 45 RPM was 78 RPM.
Use each record to trace a circle out of coloured paper or thin board.
Cut the circles out.  Fold them into sixths or eighths and draw and cut a simple decorative edge.

Crochet Time

This weekend I had some relaxation time with my crochet hook and some cotton.  I refreshed a vintage broderie anglaise dress that had come with dated chiffon sleeves.
I love this continuous crochet pattern.  You don't have to know how long it needs to be at the start.  You can just keep going until it is the right length.

And my garden is showing hints of the 1st day of Spring - coming soon!

Confetti..

Things have been quiet on the social media side, because I have been so busy with a multitude of Freshly Found projects and orders.
This custom made confetti from differently textured papers is the most recent one to be completed.
We are also preparing for a month long pop-up shop in September.  I'll tell you more about that soon
And I'll be back later this week to show you some more of what's been happening here♥
