Moving Sale A5

Moving with the winds

As many of you will know The Honeyclock has been for sale since February.  Our buyer doesn’t seem to have found their way to us just yet however we are still hopeful they are on their way.  In the mean time we have discovered we will need to vacate our current premises and so our last trading day in our current light filled shop will be Saturday 14 June, that’s about 6 weeks away.
If you are not on our mailing list or our ‘friend’ on Facebook, or following our ‘blog’ and you want to stay up to date with where we move to please send us your email address and we can add you to our ‘moving notification’ list and keep you fully informed and up to date with our movements.
In the meantime make sure you come in and see us and stock up on all your favourite goodies while stocks last

Birds are all around us, singing, nesting, feeding, enjoying the sun and the rain.  They’ve also entered our shop and we love them so much we thought we’d create a web page just for them, now you can enjoy them all the time – check it out- Gifts – Bird Houses and Birds

Making Winter Lanterns

As the darkness of our nights increases and we head towards the shortest day of the year, winter lanterns can bring a beautiful glow of light to all environments.  Here are a few ideas for how to make some:

Star lantern from ‘Craft Though the Year‘ $29.95, make with kite paper or watercolour paintings

Use Kite Paper (a translucent waxed paper in radiant colours) to fold and glue into any shape you desire, or even to cover a jar.  Available in store by the roll $6.70 or a pad of smaller squares $8.80

Use modelling wax (a transparent wax that can easily be shaped and pressed onto jars) giving a stained glass effect.  Available in store $2.85 per colour (a little goes a very very very long way)

Watercolour paintings (your children’s masterpieces or your own) – can be used in the same way as the Kite paper above.   Painting paper available in store 75c per sheet.

From blog ‘Mom’s Crafty Space’ http://www.momscraftyspace.com/2011/12/winter-solstice-lanterns-stars-sunsets.html. Made using paintings, full instructions online.

Use tealight candles within and make sure you have a long handle to avoid the heat that comes off the candle burning your hands.  100% wool handles are great because of wools flame resistance qualities.

On the shortest day of the year take your lanterns and have a little walk, either through your home (with lights turned off) or through your neighbourhood.  Invite others to join you and later, see if you can find some quiet inner time to connect with the flame that burns within you.  An open fire is a lovely way to finish your lantern walk, especially with roasted apples!NOTE:  The shortest day of the year, also known as the Winter Solstice, may be on 20 or 21 June in Perth WA Australia (I’ve found differing dates, you choose what works for you).

Holiday Nourishment

With school holidays finally here, families are relaxing or getting ready for a trip away and those still working appreciate the lighter traffic and general ‘quietness’ that comes with holidays.  Autumn brings a breathing out for all of us and we look towards those activities we’ve been wanting to learn or do but haven’t had the time.   Finally we get the chance to find a great book to read or a new jigsaw for the table for everyone to help with, time for games and laughter, for creating with crafts of all sorts, drawing and painting, days full of imaginative play or time to gently enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of our shop with a cuppa and handmade organic delights.
