I made these very quickly this last week to take to show the sewing group as I am finding out the kind of things they might like to try in the new year. Yesterday everyone brought the fairies they had made and they are sitting on Pine branches on the end wall of the hall ready for the village childrens party. They look very festive.I think everyone was very pleased with their work,I certainly was impressed with every single fairy.
Tony recently bought this fabulous chest dating from the late 1700s/early 1800. When he
bought it the chest was locked and the elderly couple had no idea where
the key was, but thought it contained letters. The escutcheon showed
signs that someone had tried to force it open, but been unable to. We
took it to a locksmith and he was able to open it. We decided to sell it
with its contents as it obviously belonged to a Count and certainly
came from a very grand house, possibly a chateau. So do take a look at his ebay site to see what's in it by clicking on the little picture of Brocante buys near the top on the right hand side. I was amazed.
