My Handmade Collection #1

Hey friends! I just looked back on the last post I made and it was quite a while ago. Things have been rather busy round Lovemandy headquarters. We have started doing improvements to our house ready for sale at the end of the year. New decking outside along with a new garden. New flooring inside, painting bathrooms and a whole heap more planned. I have also been a real bookworm, keeping out of trouble by keeping my nose buried in some good books. I just ordered The Neverending Story from Amazon and I am super excited to read it! Was one of my favourite films as a kid.

The main reason I wanted to make a post today was that I noticed lately that I seem to be starting up a collection of handmade plush toys from around the world and even local to Australia and I wanted to share with you my awesome finds.

First up is my feelings from Taylored Curiosities located in the United Kingdom.

I found her through etsy one day and instantly loved her products of a plush combined with aromatherapy. I eyed up the worry feeling for ages before plunging in and buying one.

He came with a certificate of adoption which was so cute! He fits snugly in the palm of my hand and has a wonderful smell of lavender which is suppose to help with anxiety. A little secret shh...... I carry him around with me in my handbag :)

A few months later I adopted this green little fellow called Poorly. I suffer really bad from hay fever all year round so it was a given that I have this one as well. He is a newer version than the worry one I have and can sit up with the help of little beads in his bottom! He has a wonderful smell of menthol and I just love sniffing him.

If I could I would have them all!!! She also makes other curious creatures and I will point you in the right direction so you can check out her stuff for yourself.
