This little sailor just looks lovely in his little suit, with shells for hands!! The box also contains a little bottle of shells, my usual watch, fishy paper and an antique china pipe just for the heck of it! This is probably one of the biggest assemblages I have done and it was a different theme for me.
This box was auctioned off for a lovely charity last weekend and this is the reply I received from the lovely winning bid!
What a treat, what an absolute delight. Just unwrapped, with great excitement, a parcel from the postie. It is so much more than the photographs show. I absolutely love it and will treasure it forever. Need to keep looking at it to take in all the detail.
Thanks you Meg, it was my pleasure. So happy that this wee box brought much needed funds and also a lot of pleasure! Yeah!

I have donated one of my boxes to help raise money for a lovely cause, have a look at Loopy Linnet’s Facebook page for all the info!
Thanks to Yair for designing my fab new logo!
Detail of a box about the Irish Linen Industry – I placed the little girl’s face under a glass dome and found a real vintage cotton reel and tiny packet of needles to add some detail. Oh, and not forgetting the usual watch, my own trademark!!
