mollysmaison The tiniest darts known to man... #adornbysarahb 2d
  •   mollysmaison @iamannathomas it's a small slip dress to go in a mini window display to promote a cool market I'm participating in mid year :) 2d
  •   mollysmaison @angie_baby72 I needed some of those magnifying glasses! 2d
  •   mollysmaison @reddoorcottage thanks Pam, that's kind. The result is not bad but of course I can see all the imperfections! 2d
  •   the.holly.tree What lovely hands you have. 2d
  •   mollysmaison @the.holly.tree oh that's kind. Whilst peeling carries yesterday I ran my peeler down through the top of that nail, into the bed. Ouch! I never realised my peeler was that sharp! 2d
  •   onepinkchair What a talented and patient lady you are! x 2d
  •   mollysmaison @onepinkchair not sure about that Jules, many would just say I'm a bit cuckoo! X 2d

  •   janeplanetjoy Cannot wait to see the result @mollysmaison 3d
  •   catandthebird Intrigued!! Glad your package of goodies arrived safely thank you so much for lovely feedback too Sarah x @mollysmaison 3d
  •   mollysmaison @janeplanetjoy ha ha don't get too excited! X 3d
  •   mollysmaison @catandthebird all will be revealed. I love the goodies -have already photographed them for IG :) 3d
  •   nanwoo I can't believe you made a pattern for it Sarah!!!! Above and beyond... So clever! 8h
  •   mollysmaison @nanwoo actually Hanna I have to admit I just used the A4 layout sheet for one of the actual patterns I was thinking of making in a human size. The printout showing the included pattern pieces was conveniently very small so I just went with it. I'm not being very clear in my explanation. Strangely it was to scale and the pieces worked well! I'm looking forward to seeing the display x 8h

mollysmaison Here's the first of a few photos I thought I'd share of a little project I worked on over the last few days. It's a mini slip dress made for a promo for an upcoming market. What was I thinking? I dyed a little piece of silk satin for the bodice and used some old lace for a skirt. #adornbysarahb #merchantandmills 3d

mollysmaison Tagged by @sapa to post my 7th insta image, I went back to look and it was awful! So I'm using artistic license and posting my 3rd(?) which I do like, despite the blurriness. Back then I only had an iPod, and no dslr which I like to use now along with an old iPhone.
I think I might tag @the_things_i_love_xox_ and @lookseebynaomifenton if you are game! X

mollysmaison Theses beautiful goodies arrived in my letterbox recently. Purchased from my instabuddy Sarah's @fadedemporium lovely etsy store. As much as I'd like to keep this store a secret so I can eventually have everything in it do yourself a favour and take a look.
The paste and metal piece will have to have a dress designed for it :)

mollysmaison Attention au chien! Pfft, I don't think so. This savage guard dog has been sacked after last night. Whilst she lay on our bed, on her back, legs spreadeagled and cosy as heck, someone came through our gate and broke into my car. No damage thankfully but my favourite winter parka stolen. Not happy about that. It was only a cheapie from kmart, but it has done the job for about 5 years. Boo to horrible people that take from others who work hard for it.
As for this pooch, no doubt she'll be up on our bed again tonight...

mollysmaison Dining table messiness.
Tagged by my friend Ally @sapa to post a #wellloveduglything Here on the right you can see one of my old tip shop trophies I use as a market prop. The lady at the tip shop suggested I polish it to spruce it up. Now way! I love the tarnished patina.
I'm going to challenge @fadedemporium to find something well loved and ugly amongst her stunning bits and bobs, if you're up for it Sarah x
