Scandinavian Christmas houses




Preparing for Christmas and I made these two miniature clay houses inspired by Scandinavian patterns! They are one of a kind, handpainted with red acrylic on white clay. Find them in the shop: little Scandinavian house and Nordic Christmas house.

Wishing you a lovely weekend,

Women in literature




Three matchboxes with women in literature, Virginia Woolf, George Eliot and Emily Dickinson. I really enjoyed making these! I love George Eliot's books, they are the perfect mix of love, drama and real life on the country on the Victorian era but given with great wit and insight. Woolf's books are more layered, her stream of consciousness is not easy to follow but very rewarding when you get into it. I have to admit that I haven't read a lot of Dickinson's poetry, just a few poems most notably her "Hope is the thing with feathers" which inspired me to make the cover of her matchbox :-)

Bookish




 “The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a man whom I can really love. I require so much!”
Jane Austen,
Sense and Sensibility

The weekend is a great chance to pick up a good book! And you can never go wrong with a classic like Jane Austen, her books are very entertaining, fun and full of emotions. "Sense and Sensibility" is one of my favorites, a story of two very different sisters and their views and approaches to life and love. It's been made into a movie too :-)

The bookmark is one of my faves, it;s in the shop along with others!

Have a great weekend,
Aleka

Gingerbread houses





Gingerbread houses in the shop! They are one of a kind, made from terracotta clay and hand painted with detailed patterns in white, red and green acrylics. They were challenging to make but I love how they turned out :-)

Bunny ring holders






Bunny ring holders are in the shop! These bunny rabbits are made from clay, hand shaped without the use of molds making each one unique. I painted them in pastel colors, light blue and pink, with rosy red cheeks and black eyes and nose. You can store your rings on their ears or use them for decoration!
I love how cute they turned out, hope you like them too :-)
