The Handmade Journal

Crikey, I never realised how addictive it would be to create and make a journal!!! In true Vintage Norah fashion I wanted to incorporate her lace trims and broken jewellery as embellishment or spine danglies.

The result has been beautiful journals made with a huge amount of care and each time I am amazed at how they gently and lovingly ‘speak out ‘ to you. Letting you know how they want to appear.

Maybe it’s just me but I have felt this each time and find it very magical.

WHY JOURNALS AND WAX MELTS?

For me it’s all about memories. the whole thing of certain smells which resonate from a childhood and beautiful moments we gather through out life.

I simply felt sometimes we want to hold onto these special memories of places or people and keep them gently in a place which doesn’t involve sharing with everyone else.

Even now, I’ll have a little time to remember grandparents, family times , all those happy moments full of laughter and love. As a family, we are very lucky to have this, which makes it even more precious.

Hold onto your loved ones and all the joy you share together.

Bespoke Wax Sachets & Melts.

It’s been such an exciting time this week creating these wax sachets.

Delicate ‘wax rose and shell’ fused on a heart background.

The raspberry shade of delphinium petals has added to the romance of it all.

Wax sachets are wonderful if you don’t have a wax burner or maybe, you just don’t ‘do’ wax melts. As long as you hang or place them in a coolish spot, you will be able to enjoy the scent , without having to rummage for a tealight !!! We’ve all been there right?!

I’ve had one hanging in my office for about 6 weeks now and I am pleasantly surprised with how long it is lasting.

When the cold throw of the scent weakens, I will ‘snap’ and place in a burner as you would a normal melt. Two in one eh!?

Blooming Flutterbys!

vnI absolutely adore the new floral theme at the moment and in true Norah style, it was through a good old rummage around that I came across these flowers. A bargain and very effective.

They certainly bring out the beauty of this Pink shell Butterfly Brooch.
