Hearts Off to Handmade Designers!

I love Little Tee Tee Showcase

It started with a heart.  Its results are astounding. The brief was – create something special from a heart.

It is amazing how inventive some people are. They are just blessed with the creativity gene.  I have been so inspired by the beauty of some of these creations. Here are my personal favourites.

Heart Delight by KIDS ROOMS

These amazing designers have put their wares on this showcase for your purchase (I would buy everything if I could!). It commences tomorrow at 8.30pm (Friday the 17th August 2012) and ends the same time on Monday the 20th August 2012.

If this has left you feeling inspired or got your creative mind buzzing you can find all your heart desires and needs HERE.

Doilies.... When I think of these, I think of my grandma.  She used to crochet doilies in bed. We have a few of her creations in our house. It’s strange how what I consider an old artform is getting a revamp of sorts. Gone are the days of just planting them on the dinner table or as a coaster for your cuppa. Now they can be made into anything.

Here are just a few that I loved.

if these pictures inspire, you can create something amazingly unique with your own doilies - if you don't have any your grandmother made, you can always buy a few from Little Tee Tee Laces, trims and more  Here
