Back in blog land!

Well hello blog land!  I have missed you but been awfully busy! Dont know where time goes.  I have been busy setting up an Etsy vintage/retro shop which actually takes quite a bit of time!  I really enjoy it and have joined the British Etsy sellers team which is great fun!

Pratts Patch Etsy

I have also created a few lovely new clocks and many have found new homes!  And I have started to have a go at napkin decoupage- still a long way to go on that but it's fun!

A lovely enameled mirror that was damaged and I decided to bring it back to life with beautiful peacock paper and an image from Graphics Fairy to finish off- then lovely varnish to protect it all!   

Little box that I added some vintage decoupage pictures  to and gave to my youngest sister for Christmas.  Annie Sloan and decoupage- just my thing! 

 Time zones
This was created with old atlas pages. The little clock was in a poor way so had to strip it back and give it some tender loving care. So happy with the end result.

This is one of my favourites! Used pages from old books and images from magazines- this sold very quickly!
 Music Lovers!
Decorated using vintage music sheets from a lovely old book - the largest clock I have done- also sold very quickly!

 Peacock beauty
Using my peacock paper again which I love so much- a darling little clock now in its new home!

 Little and large!
Tiny little clock- could only fit on small images!
 Around the world clock
This clock was obviously a previous project  for someone- see photos below! I quickly gave this clock a new look using vintage atlas pages, napkins and Graphics Fairy images printed on vintage pages.  I varnished this clock with gloss varnish the first time I have used gloss.

I took this clock apart completely adding decoupage to the clock face as well.

 This is the before clock below.
Before the work began sitting on my work desk! 


  1. Wow, these are seriously lovley! You have been busy. You should do a tutorial.

  2. Yes, I agree, I would love to see a tutorial on how you do this. Gorgeous clocks Sophie.

    I am adding you to my blog roll and started following you.

    Thanks for sharing!


  3. Thank you for your lovely comments this little clock sold this week so I feel a tutorial may be more likely as I need to create another (or some more than one!!)
