Fabulous Flickr Finds!

Well after a long weekend away in London I have managed to finally get back onto a computer. The first thing I did when I got back on-line was to go on a quick tour of all my regular sites and groups and when I logged on the the Autonomous Artisans Flickr group, I was so wowed by the items I saw I just knew today on the blog would be a Flickr finds day. We have a very nature inspires collection today.

CHICKENS! Yes I know, I have a one track mind right now, but chickens are in my thoughts at the moment. These wooden hand painted chooks from HalfanAcre are chickentastic! My favourite of this flock is the orange one top left.

Just how pretty is this polymer clay heart covered in tiny flowers? It must have taken ages to cut and shape all those beautiful teeny little petals on each of the flowers. I'm not sure I would have the patience Chili Crab so obviously has. It's fantastic!

Now My Grandfather used to be a budgerigar breeder for many years and this gocco print budgie gave me flashbacks to my childhood stood in a shed full of these flapping multicoloured birds. Annaklara has captured the essence of the birds perfectly.

The name of this brooch Walkinginthewoodsllc says it all really "Impressions of Nature". I love the colours and the impression of the plant in the star. It's such a simple design, but that's the beauty of it.

This stain glassed table top from Zeba collection features one of my favourite flowers, the Iris. Not only because the plants are so beautiful but also because one of my favourite aunts is called Iris. The shimmering colours in the glass used to make the table top really do evoke an image of a beautiful iris flower at the edge of a lake. Fantastic work!

The flickr group is always opening my eyes to more and more beautiful handmade items. I am so glad I started it. If you make handmade goods and would like to share them with our group, please do come along and join the group. We would love to see your work.
