Not quite a Cracker....

Well, today being Christmas day n' all I was hoping to bore you with lots of happy elf photos and present pics but Boo has been a poorly bear and this is what Christmas day looked like for us....

So I shall share with you - my present! LOOK! it's a 1930's sewing kit type thingy... the thimble comes off to reveal the cottons inside (and I presume that needles should be in the middle spoke) how fab is that?!

As photos of the Lost DVD box set aren't quite as intesting I shall now bore you with the first of many years of Toby's homemade decorations...

Googley eyes!

More googley eyes!

Santas little helper

So - I have given in to the shop loads of festive kids costumes! Here is the boy sporting an M&S elf one that I really couldn't say no too. Does he want to wear it everywhere - of course he does! I shall of course learn to send him out with a bucket next time to collect the pennies we could be earning!

Hugely happy girl this week - number one was the very lovely Rachel Goodchild had spotted that my stocking is in the January issue of Homes & Antiques magazine with this stunning photo by Carolyn Barber and styling by Keira Buckley-Jones - it's just beautiful! This has spoilt me now as it's the second year of being in a seasonal Homes & Antiques magazine

 ..... and happy girl reason number 2 was being in Bambino Goodies top 10 stocking list! I love the site so for me it's been one hoopla of a week! The stocking featured is a personalised one created especially for VUP Baby - and you've got till the 15th of December to order.

Blankets & Angels

I thought I'd share some of my commissions that I've just sent on to new homes. I've had some lovely stockings to do but this one for a baby girls' 1st Christmas is my favourite - I love that they didn't want baby pink and frills!

I had a birthday bespoke blanket to do - and its one duvet of a blanket that I could have happily kept in this weather!

And I've just put this one in the post - a bespoke angel, a Daisy angel to be precise. I have some genuinely lovely customers that just keep coming back and for them when they ordered my angel sculpture I had to do something a bit special so this little lady is based on their little angel!

A huge thank you to my customers but a bigger one to those that order bespoke and give me a teeny challenge!

It's begining to look a lot like Christmas....

We had a lovely but exhausting day on Saturday at We Make Christmas at the Chelsea Town Hall - a huge thank you to those that said hello and spent their hard earned pennies! I had to say goodbye to one of my favourite things - my fireman doll - I hope he's happy in his new home!

One of my neighbours was West Country Vintage how gorgeous is this to have next to you - so many things that I loved; Deco nursery clocks along with all the furniture .... love-er-lee!

As ever fab - I heart Heart Zeena.  Am waiting for my roll of tape (that you can see on the left) we did a Swap Shop and hugely flattered that Zeena wanted my Teeny Friends tape.

The leathertastic Love From Hetty & Dave who bought one of my new hanging soldier dolls.

Hope & Eden stand was full of things I wanted too - loved the retro style plates especially.

....and here's my offering - my Wizard of Oz trio got a lot of attention so over the moon that they went down well. Mary - you and your team did a fantastic job, it's a such a fab fair and cannot wait till the next one!
