Guess The Theme 6

Good morning everyone!  I hope you're happy and, if you're in Britain, you're looking forward to the long long weekend.  I feel as a crafter I should have extravagant plans for the jubilee involving fairycakes and bunting but I don't have any plans for the weekend other than a trip to the supermarket and taking a poorly guinea pig to the vet.  My life's so glamorous.  I'm going to be a bit more organised than I was on May Day so there will be new posts on Monday and Tuesday morning as usual.  Have a good weekend, whether you're celebrating or not!

It's the same rules as usual - if you think you know the theme, leave your guess in the blog comments or on the Buy Handmade British facebook page.  The answer will be given in Monday's blog.

Blonde Miniature Rag Doll by Lybo
£19.64 (+ £3 p&p)
Adorably cheeky, with scruffy hair and a winning smile, this little doll is designed to win hearts!  She is beautifully dressed in a pretty flowery frock with a smart felt collar, tiny little buttons and a pretty ric rac trim. Her fluffy blonde hair is made from mohair. The outfit is completed by white knee socks and perfect little painted shoes. Measuring just 4 1/2 inches tall, she is a unique little person and would make a perfect companion to brighten up any shelf, bookcase or office space. She can also be attached to a lanyard, with or without a clip so she could hang from a bag.

Blue VW Camper mug by sharonbradbrook
£8 (+ £2.50 p&p)
A hand painted mug decorated with a Volkswagon Camper Van.  The mug measures approximately 100 x 90 (excluding the handle), painted blue on the outside, clear inside and is just busting to be filled with a delicious cup of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, the list is endless. It is dishwasher proof but would probably prefer a gentle wash by hand. 
Brown Ceramic Butterfly Brooch by milesgavin
£15.31 (+ free delivery)
This beautiful handmade ceramic brooch has been made using a press mould and finished to a high standard. All the colours are made in limited editions of five to ensure a wide variety of choice. The brooch has been fired multiple times to achieve glaze effects from different temperature ranges, but all all have been up to stoneware at least once to ensure that they are tough and resilient as well as waterproof. The Honey Vein is a simple and warm design. It uses a rich semi-transparent glaze over an ivory clay body to give the appearance of sticky honey. The glaze pools in the deeper areas ensuring that all the detail is picked out with subtle colour variation. Approx. dimensions: 4cm x 2.5cm
