beavering...

yes, that's what i'm doing today dearest readers... i am beavering away with the help of Miss Ethel and my trusty hook, Mr Hook.
i am looking to add a few wares to my little store by the end of the week...
amongst my picture offerings for your perusal today, i have my little 'everyday' tags



if i were to tell you that they are not just any old 'ordinary everyday' tags for they hold a secret,
you may perhaps be thinking that Tif has finally flipped her lid.
and that maybe quite so,
but i like to think that my little set of 'everyday' tags are so much more than just 'tags', thus being 'multifunctional' and we all know how we love a bit of 'multifunctional' in our lives.

for these little sweeties can be placed upon the wall


brightening up a little area and then when all is said and done, the party is over, quite frankly you are bored with them (if there ever comes a time, of course you may never bore with them, choosing to live together forever and ever. which pleases me greatly)
but just in case you do find 'boredom' at some point, then take them down, locate your little bit of yarn they travelled to your door in and the voila! cut it into strips, add the yarn to the tags and use them to cheer up a package for a friend. i don't think really one can ask much more of an 'ordinary looking' little tag with special powers...

i'm quite happy with how they turned out.
also joining them, will be a garland or two made from recycled yarn and barkcloth,


a couple of 'rambling' frames similar to this one,


and more sets of 'every eventuality' cards,
i do believe it will be a nice little update for my empty shelves

she will be back tomorrow with the sorrowful tale of a 'crocheted circle' and her inabilities to stay 'in the round' ~ Tif

I hope your tale won't be too sorrowful - round isn't everything, you know and angular has attractions of its own.

oh, how lovely you have been to my little 'unordinary' tags (as i must call them from now on), to my little shop and to me in general... i shall away to my bed feeling 'warmed' inside :)

The tags are wonderful and I love how you tied them up so beautifully with the simplest of yarn. Your work is definitely an inspiration. And your writing brings a smile to my face every time I visit. What a joy to stumble upon your creative little space. But then again, I didn't actually stumble -- I came from another blog who highly recommended the visit and I'm so glad I did. Best wishes, :) Tammy

Enjoy your day.

T's daily treasures, i'm glad you stumbled :)

toni and jus, i am delighted to have 'holy smokes' and 'crikey dick' posted in my comments... it certainly has brighted it up no end. i do think i am going to try and say 'crikey dick' tomorrow at some point during the day and see what reaction i get... i'm thinking the chickens won't bat an eye, but perhaps at the grocery store it may raise a 'brow or two' :)

I suddenly have a realisation of the utmost kind at weekend and immediately thought of you. I have been lusting after a round crocheted cushion for ages but can not bring myself to stump up the cash to buy one.I had added it to my must-learn-to-do pile along with a vintage round cushion crochet pattern. Anyway whilst my crochet savvy Grandma was here for a family meal she picked up said cushion and within a second my plan was hatched.Oh yes I will soon be the owner of a cushion crocheted with love.Lucky me!
