Yay our pottery pieces are back from @firedfrog these two are mine. It's so exciting unwrapping the tissue paper to see if they've come out like you hoped. I love this bauble, it will definitely become an early December family activity. #ceramics #potterypainting #pottery #ceramicscafe #takeaway #paintathome #familyactivities #baubles #christmasdecorations #coasters #drinkscoasters

You know you are awesome when you can crack out a science practical at home during lockdown πŸ˜‰ Before you all get grumpy with me it's chromatography, and something I have done at work when teaching so know how to get an approximation at home with household stuff. And normally I don't get involved but saw the work come off the printer. #homeschooling #science #sciencepractical #chromatography #justmockeditupwithstuffroundthehouse

We got a takeaway box for the holidays from @firedfrog the teenagers, who weren't that bothered, couldn't wait to get started. Even the hubster said he'd have a go 😁 #pottery #potterypainting #ceremics #ceramicscafe #christmascrafts #familyactivities

How cute is Christmas decoration on a gift bag I just received 😍 Oh and full of homemade treats too! #Christmas #christmastree #christmasgifts #christmasgiftideas #ribbon #christmascrafts #crafting #craftingwithchildren #giftwrap #giftwrapping #usingupscraps #reducewaste #reducereuserecycle

So...if you ignore that fact that seaming fabric or making bags takes ages (this is an investment in the future - remember?), wrapping is a doddle. Pop the gift in a bag and tie with ribbon. Simples. 8 gifts wrapped in 10mins! Oh and the gift tags are all reused too. #furoshiki #wrappingfabric #wrapping #Christmas #christmasgifts #fatquarters #fabric #reducewaste #reducereuserecycle #recycled

Seaming fat quarters to make a start on the transition to wrapping cloths for Christmas presents. #furoshiki #fatquarters #christmasfabric #Christmas #giftwrapping #giftwrap #christmascrafts #sewing #ecofriendly #wrappingfabric

Such a bleak day I decided to brighten it up with my (very old) @clarissahulse scarf. Maybe from as far back as '95? #sunshineonarainyday #scarf #brightcolours #textiledesigner

Wall of mirrors in our downstairs 'facility', I have been collecting these vintage hand mirrors for a few years now. I try not to pay more than Β£15 inc postage. A mixture of wood, celluloid, shagreen, silver and different time periods blend quite well with the duck egg and silver colour scheme. #reducewaste #reducereuserecycle #vintage #vintagehandmirrors #handmirrors #mirrors #celluloid #shagreen #fauxtortoiseshell #artnouveau #poppy

So a few years ago I inherited two tapestry stools from my grandmother. The wooden bits were rather homemade and one arrived from the States all smashed up. I took the all-over floral one off the remaining pieces, gave it a thorough hand wash and put it it on this repro base (sadly was sold to me as vintage!), I might just rough it up a bit for some more character. Now to find a base for the other one! #tapestry #needlework #needlecrafts #footstool #vintage #upcycle #reducereuserecycle #reupholstery

Knitted a hearth rug on giant 2ft long needles, the yarn is the loom off cuts from the blanket weaving industry. This 100% merino wool yarn is inherently fire retardant so good for those little sparks that can fly off unseasoned wood. #reducereuserecycle #reducewaste #merinowool #knittersofinstagram #knitting #extremeknitting #merinoyarn #yarn #offcuts #industrialwaste #weavingindustry #blanket #rug #hearthrug #roaringfire #fire

#secondhandseptember I love this rose carved ivory necklace. Not something I would buy today but I have had it 20 years and I think it's from the 50s. Teamed with an @sainsburys skirt, which looks like a much more expensive find, so obviously it caught my eye in the charityshop. Cardie, again about 20 years old from @avoca in Ireland. #charityshop #makedoandmend #reusereducerecycle #vintagejewellery #redwhiteandblue

@the_shape_of_fashion_past

You've seen this complete outfit before but it's #secondhandseptember and it was perfect for this glorious Autumn weather today.

@the_shape_of_fashion_past

It's #secondhandseptember Did you know that? I only just found out but today I was sporting a charity shop find cashmere baby pink cardie and this amazing necklace from 50s/60s? I have had it about 20 years and bought it from a vintage jewellery shop on the Kings Road in Chelsea. I have many pieces from there 😬 #marksandspencer #autograph #cashmere #knitwear #cardigan #charityshop #jewellery #necklaces #vintage #vintagenecklace

In the process of decorating my bedroom but the alcove blind was still in great condition so I painted it with very random stripes in matching colours to the new blind.

Don't judge-I have teenagers, but I was in Primarni the other day and came across these long line cardies in several colours, which have a bit of an Edwardian vibe going on. Obvs the plastic buttons have to go. Thinking I should have changed into an A-line skirt too πŸ˜‚ #edwardianfashion #edwardianknitwear #primark #knitwear #navyblue #vintagefashion #vintageknitwear

Glanced in the mirror as I dashed out the door this morning, realised I've dressed like an extra from Grease. 🀣🀣🀣🀣
