Things lately

Claire Hartigan (blog)

Here are a few things I have bought, found been or been working on lately.

My Orange Fox brooch, a sweet little pinecone I picked up on a walk in the Surrey sunshine, a lovely papier mâché box from an amazing shop in Brighton, I love orange and green and elephants have a very special meaning to me. And my latest painting Windswept IV which is now available from my Etsy shop.

Old Spitalfields Market

I visited Old Spitalfields Antique Market last week, and it was full of such lovely things!

I have only ever walked through the market on my way to somewhere else when ever I’ve been in East London, but last Thursday was the Antique Market and I had to have a proper look at all the stalls.

I only came away with one item though, this lovely orange and green bag that I loved as soon as I saw it, and for £6.50 I couldn’t leave it behind.

I have been doing some painting today for the first time in a long time. I can’t quite bring myself to say how long, but it’s been nice to use more colour and loosen up a bit.

I may even have some available soon! (if I can manage not to drop the paintbrush on the paper like I did today…)

New Stock!

I am so pleased to show you my new wares! I have 8 new acrylic brooches that you can purchase via my Etsy shop and website (available from tomorrow). I have 2 new Fox designs based on my woodcut prints and my favourite 6 from previous keyring designs! 

I also now have 6 new acrylic keyrings that I will share with you soon!

 

 

In the meantime…

Meadow

Deers Acorn

I will soon be sharing my new stock with you! There are a few last minute bits to work out so in the meantime, here are a few pictures from the recent bank holiday Monday. I love my new Acorn necklace which was a present from a lovely shop in Kingston, the beautiful meadow flowers can be found in the grounds of Hampton Court Palace and the less than impressed looking Deers reside in Bushy Park : )
