Catherine's Profile

About

Originally from London, I now live in rural Devon on the edge of Dartmoor, in the South West of England. It is very beautiful with its rolling hills and amazing thatched cottages. It also has lots of places where vintage and craft items can be found. I have a passion for anything antique and vintage.

I am also a fibre artist, specialising in sculptural needle felting. I make miniature needle felted animals. They can be found in my other shop, Mrs Plop's Shoppe.

My other passion is animals. I adore them! I have 3 dogs, and I live for them.
Please note: Don't worry about dog hairs on any items, my dogs aren't interested in antiques ;) (they're a little bit more interested in my needle felted things, but they know now that they're not things designed…

I'm an odd mix of London funkster and Celtic, windswept lady in an antique dress wandering about on the moors. (Ok, I don't actually wander about on the moors, I do usually know where I'm going) I grew up in London and the Hampshire countryside (lots of moving around) so that might explain why I'm a funky Londoner and a Victorian Lady at the same time :)

My accent is just as confused. Cockney with the occasional 'ooh arr me lover' although it's scary when my voice goes all westcountry and I have to phone a friend in London quick, to top up me Cockney ;)

I'm thoroughly enjoying being here on Etsy. It's such a lovely community, and I've 'met' some truly wonderful people here.
