I’m a little over excited because today the snow finally arrived and the view from my studio is this
which makes me and the kids very happy. They went out to play the moment it was light enough and lucky C has the day off pre-school as they’ve decided not to open (this is Kent, even a hint of a snowflake and the County shuts down). I am also happy as I’m the recipient of many lovely new things which I’d like to share with you.
This happens a lot on my desk, please note, this is not a posed shot I am dreadfully guilty of putting my coffee cup down on anything available (including pattern pieces) as the desk is an old Victorian trestle table that’s oiled and waxed and marks if I put a hot coffee cup on it, so when I saw this post over at Mia’s fabulous blog I decided to treat myself to some of her Christmas coasters.
I’ve been meaning to buy something from Mia for ages, she makes the most amazing felted/knitted/tweed pouches and bags with needle felted birds, foxes and snowmen and I wasn’t disappointed. The packaging was lovely and included the sweet little bird you can see attached plus a matching hand-made card.
I was so impressed I went back to Mia’s shop to buy more (this time to be sent out as a Christmas present)
This time Mia was generous enough to include a beautifully made matching bag, now how about that for service?
I did sneak in a little treat for myself, a key ring, key fob with a sweet little bird, as you do 😉
I also wanted to show you my ‘recent’ purchase by Hidden Eloise/HidenSeek.
Magically packaged, as always.
And incorporating one of my favourite of her designs ‘My Captain…We’ve reached the end of the world’
I love this, I’ve bought mirrors (as presents for F’s school friends) and postcards before but I so love the new jewellery and see there’s a Sale on along with some great new prints.
I’m sure I have more to show but need to collect F so I think we’ll leave it there for today 🙂
