the clouds are back

I've been searching for clouds material for ages, 
I wanted to find something special and I did it.
These grey clouds are made with new but vintage 
1940's Welsh blankets, they are so soft and thick.
Available now in the shop.

The grey cloud is so beautiful....perfect colour!
I am so sorry to hear you quit pinterest....as i love your boards. I can understand why though, especially when a photo of yours is used by others in a dodgy way. It was only today i received a very strange comment from someone on Pinterest and was surprised to find it linked with others on Pinterest. I didn't look into it further thinking it may be a spam link.
Thanks for sharing your inspiration boards, it was fun!

for pinterest i loved to see your boards but i totally agree with you + photocopies of photocopies doesn't mean nothing at the end especially if it's not regulated at all

waw, this cloud is so great! I love the grey! And I love how well your cloud works with Elisabeth's drops... so cute!
I am sorry to hear about your bad experience... You know I hate when that happens and I guess it's more and more often and I also have doubts about putting anything online. But then... I see so many positive things and I try to focus on them... although I always worry a bit...

Have a beautiful week dear Alexs, I hope I will be able to prepare some snail mail for you soon... it's been too long since I've send you something...*

Thank you all, it was a "tough" decision to take, I've pinning almost since the beginning and alwsys eith sincerity and care, but as Severine says,what's the point of photocopies of photocopies?
I will try to link more in this space.

Ana you are a sweetie, thank you x

Love that you found vintage fabric for your clouds. Having lush materials to work with makes all the difference. It's beautiful...

Pinterest... I feel the same as Naa, "doubts" about posting images. Though how can we control it? Makes me a little (maybe a lot) paranoid. So sorry to hear it happened to you Alessandra. Also miffed that pinterest did not help you resolve the situation or hear your complaint. X

Beautiful cloud!

I totally understand that you leave pinterest, first for a question of time and because of this copyright problems! It's a shame that even in this kind of activity some person could be so unscrupulous and without ethic!

Ps: thank you for your vote! and your encouragement!^_^

I totally understand where you're coming from. It looks like Pinterest is growing faster than they can overview. I pin thins, but that's mostly to remind myself about things/products/recipes etc.

I have seen some strange things happening on Pinterest lately. It is sad. I hope they are able to get things in order again... I own a pair of those red sandals : )

Pinterest is having a lot of spam issues lately. I'm being extra careful with it. I wa personally spammed for a diet product. even Pinterest spammers know i'm fat. I hope they find a way out of this, because I would be rally sad if I had to leave, and I totally understand why you left.
