Nursey at the BIC

Last weekend Miss Cream Tease and I set up a stand at a festive craft do at the BIC (Bournemouth International Centre). It was a 2 day event and this year boasted a whole portion of the floor space being devoted to handmade crafts.  It's always great to meet other makers and we also had fun chatting to our customers. A big thank you to everyone that came to see us.

Miss Cream Tease even had her face painted! Wish I'd had mine done too.

New LOOK Nursey

Here at the burrow we thought it was about time NBB had a major make over. I'm sort of virtual spring-cleaning but just a few months earlier than everyone else. I have to say I'm loving it and can't wait to show you some of my very new products that are currently being created as we speak (or they will be just as soon as I stop typing).
a virtual hoover!

December is almost here and I can honestly say I'm beginning to feel quite Christmassy and have already been checking out the local pub for signs of their annual Christmas tree sellers.

The Nursey-mobile (my Fiat 500) is also due a shampoo which I'll be attempting to do next week.  I might add I will not be festooning the aerial with tinsel or any other type of tie-on Christmas appendage as it's a serious car and does not like to be messed with!
I'm sure there will be quite a few more changes this week but I can assure all my regulars that everything will be in place by Monday as I think, by then, I might be a bit blogged out!
Thank you for your continuing support and visits.

Love Nursey xx

Fresh on Folksy - Nursey Bang Bang

 Have just had my coffee pot print featured this morning on the brilliant 'Fresh on Folksy' blog. 
Here's what Ed has to say:
"This image appeals to me on lots of levels. Love the colours, love the mid 19c styling and I want a coffee pot just like this one. I have just started collecting Hornsea Pottery (well, I have one piece but I intend to get more - donations very much welcome) and although this isn't Hornsea it would be very welcome in my house. Visit Jill Adams' shop for more great retro illustrations."

Prince, A Purple Reign

Documentary film which explores how Prince - showman, artist, enigma - revolutionised the perception of black music in the 1980s with worldwide hits such as 1999, Kiss, Raspberry Beret and Alphabet Street. He became a global sensation with the release of the Oscar-winning, semi-autobiographical movie Purple Rain in 1984, embarking on an incredible journey of musical self-discovery that continues to this day.
From the psychedelic Around the World in a Day to his masterpiece album Sign O' the Times and experiments with hip hop and jazz, Prince remains one of most ambitious and prolific songwriters of his generation. He tested the boundaries of taste and decency with explicit sexual lyrics and stage shows during his early career and in the 1990s fought for ownership of his name and control of his music, played out in a public battle with his former label, Warners. Still in demand as one of the most flamboyant live performers around, Prince remains a controversial and elusive creative force - as much a mystery as ever.
Contributors include Revolution guitarist Dez Dickerson, Paisley Park label president Alan Leeds, hip hop legend Chuck D and Prince 'Mastermind' and UK soul star Beverley Knight.
