Oh my, it has been a little while since I last posted on here! We have just had a few relaxing days off (well needed!) and whilst going through the morning post received our brand new August issue of Vogue. They have featured our pretty Danish 'Happy Glow' tealight holders in their 'Vintage Collection'.
Add splashes of colour to your living space with this fabulous set of five Danish tealight holders.

a Bundle of Felt...
We are just starting to introduce our beautiful felt fabrics - the colours are so yummy and irresistible that I have already hidden a my own naughty little stash. Not quite sure exactly what I am going to make yet but I do have some owl shapes cut ready for sewing.... when I get an extra hour or so...... but in the meantime my patient little birdies are a work in progress.
Our felts come in pretty rainbow assorted bundles. They contain 30% Wool and 70% Rayon/Viscose - the quality of this felt makes it a joy to work with.

There is something rather lovely and beautiful about buttons don't you think!?! It's a bit like Christmas when they arrive. Every bag has to be opened and then I can sit there happily looking at them for a little while with a big smile on my face - yes, I am easily pleased.
Great for jewellery making, embellishments for cards, scrapbooking, sewing onto fabrics.One of my favourites are these giant polka dot spotty buttons - I think they are fab! There 4 colours available, GREEN, RED, TEAL & HOT PINK. We also have little polka dot ones too, if you don't fancy big and bold.

Its always so lovely when you receive a gift that has been beautifully wrapped and looks amazing. I came across these cute birdy tags, they're really sweet and look fab on a pressie...you could pop one into a blank card too. As gift tags they make a lovely decoration as an alternative to a bow. I used a strip of fabric, two types of ribbon and then popped one of these birdies on top.
How sad am I when I have to start wrapping up presents to myself....hmmm!
Well, it's fun to play with pretties.
The great thing is that you can now find these available on our website! They come as a pack of Six, presented in a cello sleeve. We only have a limited amount in stock and these birdies need good homes.....
