One bought, one won- too lovely!

I made an October pay day Folksy purchase and sought out a bit of undiscovered talent. I found Lou Peajeux- what a treasure, stationary badges and mirrors all made from really quirky illustrations- the pheasants card I chose is absolutely perfect for an Uncle of mine, and I know will appeal to his sense of humour- I would rather send a witty card than a 'humorous' card any day. I can definitely seeing me buying more here as I have a whole family to whom I think these lovely makes would appeal!

I am also really pleased to have won Lupins giveaway on her blog Bugs and Fishes. I really like Laura's work and although there are other makers also using felt and beads there is something particularly nice about her designs and again the quirky nature of things such as her moustaches and masks. I do seem drawn to the oriental and have liked this cherry blossom design since I first saw it. I asked Laura to post my prize to my parents house as I wanted this brooch to go to my Mum, she is much more elegant than me and has a real weakness for a nice jacket so I knew that she would both appreciate the design and model it with more panache than I. A big thanks to Laura for making Mum and me two happy chicks.
Both these lovely pictures have been 'borrowed' from Folksy- thanks ladies. x

I love Lupin's work - I have a couple of her beautiful brooches - they are really exquisitely made.
