Octons - the return

Remember this?
Well the fabulous Donna said she might have some stored away and would I be interested. Well YES PLEASE! And that's what just arrived in the post...






Check out my OCTONS!!! (I'm such a dweeb).



Come on, tell me I'm not alone in thinking they are beautiful. Donna has a great vintage fabric shop here. Thanks Donna! And have a wonderful sunny weekend all. x

  3. I'm so glad that you love them. I feel like it is my duty to pick up unwanted things and rehome them!

  4. these look lovely, she told me you might be having them. And yes she is a complete nightmare to having living down the road. Donna is very dangerous indeed, but very lovely at the same time. I love how the light shines through these. L x

  11. These will never be Octons, but I wonder if you had seen these, Geomag with panels? I happened upon a set of basic Geomags in my favourite local charity shop and have been in geeky heaven making geometrical shapes ever since. Found some rather beautiful examples on the internet later. The transparent panels make them rather pretty, don't you think? Happy building!
