Scandi Stocking Advent Calendar

by Sarah Sews It


£37.50 plus shipping
Buy at Etsy

Made in Milnthorpe

"Beautiful handmade scandi-style Christmas advent calendar. It will look fabulous hung across any fireplace or on a Christmas tree in the run up to Christmas. My children love using the one I have made for them to count down the days until Santa arrives (and of course eating the chocolate inside the stocking each day!).

Each date in advent is represented by a 100% cotton stocking with a different design. Each stocking is approximately 16 cm tall, 6.5 cm wide at the top and 10 cm wide at the bottom, making it the perfect size to store candy and chocolate treats or small gifts in each one. The back of each stocking is made from plain red 100% cotton fabric."

Stained Glass Mirror by Gorgeous Glass Designs


Stained Glass Mirror

by Gorgeous Glass Designs


£70 plus shipping
Buy at Etsy

Made in Pontypridd

"Hand made using traditional techniques. The mirror measures 40cm high x 40cm wide. Made using yellow textured glass and black glass which is swirled over clear glass to make beautiful patterns. As each mirror is made with unique patterned glass, the swirly patterns may differ slightly to the pictured glass. The mirror is strung with picture wire on the back so it is ready to hang.

The Glass Process
I trace the shapes of the design onto the glass using a specially made light box which illuminates the glass from behind. With the shapes traced out I will use a diamond tipped glass scorer which creates a weak point in the glass. Some carefully applied pressure will cause the glass to break along the scored lines. If any excess occurs, I use my glass grinder to smooth the glass back to the correct lines of the design. The glass is then washed, dried and I apply a special copper tape to every side of each piece of glass. I assemble all of the taped pieces into the correct design and use a soldering iron to apply solder onto the tape. The piece is then washed again to remove any corrosives and dried. The final stage is to paint the solder with a chemical which turns it black and clean everything ready for purchase."

This results in the same vintage look and feel you want, but with strong paper, and ink that doesn't ever fade. And if you buy multiple prints, the words on each page will be different."
