Poppies Everywhere.

Thank you to Illusio, Wild Woman Jewelry and The Cycling Artist for including our Poppies in their Remembrance Day treasuries today. As it stands the figure on Wychbury's Blue Peter style totaliser for the Poppy appeal is £48 and FIFTY EIGHT poppies, large and small have been sold so far - mainly from our Folksy shop.

This is absolutely phenomenal and we'd like to say a HUGE 'Thank you' to everyone who has helped us to help the appeal so much more than we normally would both by purchasing and promoting our brooches. The tiny poppy pins are almost sold out but there are still a few in our online shops, they will be back on general sale as soon as we get more supplies. The large ones will continue to be sold for as long as people want to buy them and we will continue to make the £1 donation to the Poppy Appeal.

Oh Lordy it's all go around here! The Poppy Corsages are selling really well so lots of donations to the Royal British Legion. Many, many thanks to everyone who has bought one so far :)

I have now run out of beads until the postman decides to bring me some so I can pause for a sec to mention this fab treasury we were in that, for the first time this week results in a blog NOT about poppies!! The Medieval collection was put together by Heather at Tatiana Rose. Heather is a UK tatter residing in Kent with some very priddy things indeed! A designer after our own hearts with a real medieval/goth/renaissance vibe to her work.

Call me a purist if you like but it has to be black for me so Heather's 'Christina' pendant is the one floating my gondola! Check it out.
