mod podge and markets.......

I have a new best comes in many shapes and sizes and has a very groovy font...I know I'm a little late to the party for Mod Podge crushes but now I know what all the fuss is about :).....

it helped me turn my cute little vintage cases into these :)

and also on the inside....

I am planning lots more Mod Podging activities...if you would like to know how to do the outside of the suitcase there is a fab tutorial over here

......other non Mod Podge related news is that littleteawagon cushions and bunting have been featured in   Prima June 2012 Craft Supplement Magazine. Its a really lovely little mag with lots of nice ideas for making and sewing like this.......

.....also this weekend I will be packing my ModPodged little cases full of bags and bunting and prints and vintage supplies and heading down to the Magpies and I vintage craft market in Altrincham...this is not something I do very often ( I like to hide away in my little garden shed mostly ) but a very lovely new friend....oooh betty  has invited me to share a stall with her and her very lovely vintagey and retro could I refuse?... we will no doubt spend the afternoon chatting and drinking lots of tea and getting quite giddy :)

so with that I will wish you a very happy weekend.. 
I know its only Thursday but I am thinking ahead  :)

a post about not posting.....

...I know I have been neglecting this blog recently....but I have been a busy bee in my little shed in the garden...when the sun was shining.....when the rain was lashing....when the moon came out. I was hidden away with just my radio, my sewing machine and occasionally a small dog.. when the fancy took him.....I'll be back properly soon ..

have a lovely weekend
