Happy New Year 2011!

...And we hope it'll be a healthy and happy one.

Just checking in to tell you guys that the shop is closed until Monday 10th January because I am on holiday. However, please feel free to make enquiries and place orders, the only difference is that they will be dispatched on Monday 10th or Tuesday 11th instead of this week.

I've been creating loads this Christmas break, with two sweet new additions to the shop, using a really cool pattern I invented myself. One is baked, that's all I'll tell you. And no, that doesn't mean he's had too much wine during the festive season...

I'm looking forward to putting them up as soon as possible so you can all have a look!

Again, Happy New Year and best wishes,

Emma at Lambcake

Vintage 1970's lined "Oroton" Glomesh purse

This is a vintage, fully lined purse made by "Oroton", a very collectable brand.

It is made of very soft and shiny Glomesh chainmail and has the original label inside that reads "Oroton" on one side, and "Made in West Germany" on the reverse. It has a gold clasp, and the lining is made of satin in a wonderfully uni
que gold/apricot colour. Brilliant for a collector or just to use as a coin purse or a statement mini clutch bag.

It is in fabulous condition and has been kept in a box since I bought it - A great statement accessory!

Vintage 1960's dressing table pots

These are a pair of absolutely beautiful, absolutely vintage pots that I found a few years ago in a charity shop.

They are original 1960's dressing table pots, perfect for putting earrings, buttons or brooches in and are made of carved glass with a very unique 'ribbed' effect around the edges. They look simply gorgeous in the bathroom, or of course on your dressing table!

I'm only selling these because I have no space for any more trinkets in my house, and I'll be very sad to see them go.


Meet Lambcake's mascot - Onion Man! Each is hand knitted, hand sewn and tagged with his own name, so each one is completely unique and with his own personality.

They also make a very sweet gift and are a fabulous stocking filler!

This is Voodoo, so called becuase of his slightly creepy (yet cute, I think) face and his bright orange eyes! He fits nicely into the palm of your hand, is very soft and is about 5 inches high.

Why not give Voodoo as a gift for next Halloween?


Meet Lambcake's mascot - Onion Man! Each is hand knitted, hand sewn and tagged with his own name, so they are completely unique and each has his own personality! Also, every Onion Man is specially named after a type of onion for an extra sweet touch.

This is Rubens, the largest Onion Man I've made and my favourite! Rubens measures 14 inches in circumference by 4.5 high.

He's made of two different types of red wool, so he's nice and sturdy. He has two lovely googly button eyes and a sewn mouth, and he's been hand finished and stuffed.
He would make a lovely companion or gift for anyone!
