I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….
“My name is Daisy Jones and I am a collector”
Some collections we tell everyone about.
We are happy to spread the word about our shelves full of our treasures !
We are bought pieces ‘for your collection‘… at christmas, for birthdays and “just because“…..
However there are some collections we stay in the ‘closet’ about.
Well, I have decided to come out of the closet about one of mine
You see, I believe that beauty lies in the eye of……
The Toilet roll Holder!!
I found her at the market, it was raining , the man was packing away…..
I picked her up..
“that was my Mum’s” he said, “she used to have her friends round when I was small and they would make them to see to raise money for charity. She kept this one. I am clearing out all her stuff now”…
Of course I had to take her home.
Later I found this picture…..from a vintage crochet brochure
I loved her crochet dress it was more ‘me’
Then serendipity took over…
I had a message from acould I supply her with my address?
A parcel arrived later….
Oh my goodness!
Thank you so much
Then there were two.
Now it was at some point during that same week,
I had a eureka moment.
The revamped restyled toilet roll holder!
She is a Skandi style updated version.
She is very tall…
And has gorgeous ‘yarny’ hair..
You can fit three under there
Or two and tuck the hem in?
‘Tycker du om mig?’
‘Do you like me?’
We love her,
She has now retired to the bathroom.
I designed and made her myself, she is half amigurumi and half granny crochet.
