DAY 3 ONCE GIVEAWAY 12.12




Day 3 giveaway is from an artist mamma craft person and collector, who has busy hands and an excellent eye. Together with her husband of the beautiful portraits, BRONWEN VAUGHAN-EVANS has launched a wonderful blog called ONCE. A treasury of vintage collectables, up-cycled craft, photography, painting and style. They will be adventuring to Melbourne in the new year but luckily through their blog we will still be able to share their loveliness. I have a black swallow plaque which I love to pieces and which is my PAINTED BLACKBIRD mascot, so it is especially special to be giving one away today. Hand made, moulded from a vintage brass plaque and cast in Jesmonite, new life breathed into old. Make sure you sign up at ONCE!
