Vintage Farmhouse...

What a creative weekend I have had. The weather here was questionable which kept us indoors, which meant I got to cook, sew and have a very homely few days.
Lots of progress was made on the new Christmas range for this year and I have listed lots of clay tags, Doves, stars etc with more to come and also got started on some of my Vintage Patchwork covers like this one above.
Each one will be slightly different, some have more vintage pieces than others, but all lovely.
There are also some with hand stamped and screen printed pieces included like this one. I really love how they look along side my vintage linen heart on our bed( I have some of these listed in store also) and may have to save one for us.

I have a huge stash of vintage and antique linens, prints and ticking's and little by little I am piecing them together.

I have also started to list this years stockings.
I really wanted the look for this season to have a farmhouse feel to it am am happy with what I have so far. I do have some patchwork stockings to come also that have pieces of vintage linens through them. Let me know what you think.
P.S -I have started a Facebook page for Marley & Lockyer and have no idea how it all works, but there is a little button if you would like to follow the blog. The response so far from those of you from FB already has been wonderful. Thanks.

  1. As much as I love white I do like that last stocking with the flowery edging. And the patchwork cushions look great too. Wonderful way to re-use precious old fabric bits. xo

  13. I am sooo excited! Just purchased one of your beautiful vintage linen hearts. You are absolutely right - it looks so perfect alongside your patchwork cushions. I'll have to keep an eye out for any future patchwork creations with red tonings to match my new bedroom colour scheme.

  14. Hi Ness, sounds like you have been your new cushions. Its ashame i havent any blue theme in our house and i could buy some. Take care Manda

  15. I ADORE those stockings! You are SO clever to be able to make such, beautiful, wonderful things. In the absence of such creative abilities myself, I shall have to content myself with the one good talent I do have - boy do I know how to shop - so I'll be winging my way over to yours in time for Christmas! x

  16. You are such a busy girl Ness and to getting ready for Christmas, so organized too. I think it is still summer so I think I have some catching up to do quick. Hope all is well and I bet you love this time of year. Much love XO

  17. Beautiful, beautiful! I love your
    creations! The pillows are amazing.
    You definitely have talent. I know
    how hard it is to sew something
    like that, and personally cannot
    begin to do it, so I admire it so

    As always you are an inspiration!
