Jam Tarts was at Rondebosch Market yesterday. It was evident that people are starting to buy presents for Christmas and others have an end-of-year overseas trip planned, so they can buy items that are winter-friendly.
A friend of Rob’s passed on a couple of body hangers which are wonderful for displaying shawls. Only thing is (and a couple of people commented on this as well), I think they’ll look better with knickers. What do you think?
And a happy ending for the first mirror I made with broken crockery:
To be continued…
I think knickers are overrated ;)
Lovely mirror too – no wonder Megan wants another!
Lol :-) and thanks!
Maybe you could sew a few flowers together for modesty’s sake?
Perfect solution. See – see- NOW you’re getting into the swing of it.
Maybe you could crochet some knickers?! Lol! Lovely mirror! x
or mosaic some directly onto her?
You have really pretty work which also looks well made. I hope you do well at the markets. Good luck.
Thank you for saying that :-) We try, we try :-)
Gorgeous mirror! The body hanger would be better if it just finished in some nondescript way. Naked looks wrong but pants would detract from the shawl. Mmmm.
Rowena had suggested flowers strung together ( a bit tongue in cheek, though, I think) and Alison suggests crochet. I’m thinking something simple – like a thong!?
I vote for a crochet fig leaf. Frankie’s vote is for the thong. My mom would probably suggest a French bikini consisting of 2 bandaids and a cork – but she’s often inappropriate like that. Woah ~ did I just say that out loud? I need a nap. (Beautiful stuff you are making there girl! Have a fabulous week!)
Did you just say ‘cork’? Please tell me you didn’t just say ‘cork’, or that it was a typo?
Sorry, but my mom thinks that French bikinis are waaaay too skimpy. Seriously inappropriate…funny, but oh so wrong.
No apology required. I’m still choking on my morning coffee so thanks for wonderful body-shaking laugh!
Then my work here is done. My Sunday night is now complete :)
You need Maryanne’s crocheted knickers from Woolhogs ;)
HAHAHAH teas is spurting out of my nose as we speak – not the most attractive look! Best I get my step mum to send you a pair of crocheted knickers instead – save the corks!!! PLEASE save the corks! Love all your pics Jill, what a gorgeous colourful market day!
Please ask her. Tell her that Plastic Girl has a very small bum. :–)
I’m a prude they need knickers!!
Right. Knickers it is.
I say paint the body hangers, make them bright and fun and full of ‘life’ that way no one will care if they’re naked or not
