A Little about Tattered Inspirations

Tattered Inspirations is a little business which aims to provide products with a vintage heart to use in your crafts - be it scrapbooking, card making or other crafty pursuits.

The Tattered Inspirations shop is here
Tattered Inspirations

Markets - we will keep you informed as we have no idea when we will be able ot go to the Old Bus Depot due to their rennovations. once I know I will pop it here :)

The business is only tiny and is not in any way out to make lots of money but rather to offer products to compliment the usual supplies available by big companies.

The Design Team Rachel Walsh, Belinda Comerford, Kathy Marchant, Daniella Tassone and Suzie Lowe creatively use the products to show people what can be done - and I treasure their input and design work immensly.

Thank you for dropping by, we aim to encourage and inspire you to do something different out of your comfort zone, in new and exciting ways.

2 new mini kits

I have been working hard with my vintage laces and ephemera lately to bring two mini kits that I am pretty sure that you will love :)

Rendezvous at the Seaside
With the Rendezvous Kits I write a little story to set the scene (and just because I am a bit of a romantic I guess)

Here is the story.....He had been at sea for over 6 years, but she had waited for his return. Before he left he gave her his grandmothers old pearl brooch which she had sewn safely onto a pale blue satin ribbon and wore it near her heart. Her little dog 'Yorkie' was with her the day his ship pulled into the harbour. Yorkie also had a lovely blue bow around his collar. There was nothing left to say when he saw her, and started running up the beach to where she sat waiting. 6 years was a long time, but it was over and a new start was about to begin......

Lady in Red
The gorgeous picture of a very famous Italian opera singer Lina Caverli (from a favourite site I visit - the Graphics Fairy) really had me thinking about this lady in red. How different it was back then to now.... How different she would find things!
