Cake Stands......

It was a quiet week in the shop last week as I only opened on Thursday.

It was busy though as we had craft in the morning, and I had a couple of drop by customers.

Below is my new batch of soap I am trilling.

It is men's shaving soap, I have done round and square bars.
 It will be ready in two weeks as I like 
to cure my soaps for at least 6 weeks.

I did manage to get 3 cake stands made on Thursday afternoon.

and yes it was a hard decision to make. All these plates I have 2 or more of so 
they were the ones I used.

The Old Dairy is open again tomorrow until Saturday.
I am back at the Stockyard Creek Markets on Saturday morning as well.

Have a great week.

Cake Stands....

 This week I am making Cake Stands.
Below is a cup stand that has proven very popular.
They are all made from Good English China.
The cup Plate Stands are $15

 My problem is
I Love all the plates I have, yes all 100 plus of them.
Some are in the shop the rest are hiding in the house. Then 
I have to make a chioce what plates to use for stands.

The Cake Stand below I need to drill holes into
as yet I haven't broken any but it is still nerve wracking choosing what plates to use
in case I do.
These Stands are 

This week I am only open on Thursday 19th

Craft Day @ The Old Dairy.

Welcome to the end of the week.
I bet there is a lot of you looking forward to the week end.
I will be busy today and Saturday doing markets and the shop.

I love my old milk separator at the front door of 
The Old Dairy.
hmmm just noticed the welcome sign has been decorated by my grandson.

Lots of new goodies in the shop this week.
The handmade sign above is made locally and the lady Cassie that makes them
also does them made to order.

Below is the new range of Tye dyed baby items made by another local lady Jasmine.
Cassie makes the pillows, I love the Retro fabric she has used in these two.

I am having fun making pom pom garlands this week, I find the teenage girls love them along with the hippy chick socks, that all sold out last week end.

 I am finding that locals are coming to me wanting to sell there arts and crafts which is just what I wanted. Some where for those that love to create can sell there work and then have some spare money to keep the addiction going. hahaha

We had our first craft day last week and it was a real success, 8 ladies turned up and we had lots of fun. We are all wanting to knit and crochet at the moment and are learning so much of each other.

Lucky I have a nice range of cotton and bamboo yarns available as well as needles and hooks.
Craft is going to be on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month, so if you are about drop in.

Enjoy your week end and I hope you fit a little bit of what you 
love to do into your week end.

Opening Night...

Thursday night was opening night of my little shop.
It went really well and I had about 30 people turn up.
I was so busy though that I forgot to take photos.

I had really good feed back from every one there, even the men!
All the hard work is done now and I can enjoy doing my arts and crafts
for my little shop and Markets.

I am still going to do the Markets as I really enjoy doing them.
If I get too busy in the shop for Bruce to handle then I will reconsider, but I think that is 
A long way off.

I got in lots of Washi Tape and am having fun with it and its selling very fast.
Also my Hippie Chic socks are walking out the door hahah I'm so funny.

I have also added some stitchery and Red work, we will see how they go.
The bottom 2 are cross stitches.

Thanks for stopping Bye.
