Last bank holiday weekend my friend and I went to Shrugborough Estate near Stafford. It was one of those rare days this summer when it was warm and dry. We had a lovely wander around the estate including visiting the arboretum and walking the sculpture trail. They have some beautiful highland cattle and other animals on the Estate. At the craft workshops we met this amazing glass artist who does some beautiful work, turning empty spirit bottles into cheese boards, creating fabulous jewellery, vases, tea lights, mirrors and other items. We really enjoyed chatting about her work and admiring her craft.
This inspired me to look at items on folksy and here you have my glass theme blog post. I just love all the colours and the animals. I hope you enjoy the small selection I have chosen. If you click on the photo it will take you directly to the shop on Folksy - why not stop and have a browse?
I hope you have enjoyed hearing about Shrugborough estate and looking at the wonderful items available on folksy. I have joined the September Sellers daily listing club this month and will be listing new items every day, so please check out my shop! If you have started your Christmas shopping early please do have a browse. Many of the items in my shop are suitable as gifts and very reasonably priced. Here are a couple of items that I have listed already this month!
