Bobbett's Blog No 105, Spring in the air, things are looking up.
This week the weather has really been spring-like and with an out-of-lockdown plan in place, things are looking up.
I started the week by selling some bird feeders then making a new English Garden lampshade and starting a few other designs. Tonia has been busy making an earring collection, Tasha has been decorating her bedroom and we have a new Artist on B.O.B to introduce Danielle.
I've been working on an idea I have had for a while. It started with a design idea I had for a commission with a light fitting.
Wire cages with birds, something for the English Garden collection.
I love this simple design. I have added it to the website and our Etsy site, in the next coming week I hope to add more to the collection.
The bird feeders are also proving to be popular with spring in the air and of course Mother Day around the corner a great gift idea.
Since opening the Facebook shop we have had a lot of good interest this week and selling the Exotic Eccentric side table.
Which has prompted me to start another couple of pieces, one in the Chateau Bijoux Collection and a couple of pieces in the Nightshade Collection
One Nightshade mirror started and a couple of tables are underway.
Next week I will show you the finished pieces.
Tonia has been busy this week on an earring collection using natural stone and polymer clay with sterling silver fittings.
I especially love the shell design.
Reminds me of the summer, I can see myself wearing these with my summer outfits, roll on sunshine months, if you are interested in these pieces contact us here.
Tasha has started to update her bedroom
She's decided to follow the book themes into the bedroom.
The navy looks amazing with the bookcase wallpaper.
An upcycled tallboy then a change of view with a new desk, for her partner to work on.
Loving the small details, the side shelves with gold decor are a nice bunny ready for spring.
Love the dark wood against the blue, next week she hopes to show you it finished but it's looking great already.
Finally this week I would like to introduce you to our latest Artist on B.O.B
