I have started making a selection of christmas decorations, in the same style as those above....quite simple fabric patterns. I don't know how many i will finish before christmas but if i have time I am going to fill some of the little birds with lavender for gifts for people to hang in their closets... x
having these pots planted up makes the view from my window a lot less bleak....
I planted rosemary, lavender and ivy for both nice smelling window boxes and some lovely trailing foliage.
i did however have so many pansies i had to utilise every planting space i had!!
they looked gorgeous this weekend in the bleak snow!!.... pity it didn't last!
Innocent smoothie's currently come with really cute little wooly hats!!
I bought two just beacause they were cute and i thought the little hats could make egg cosies or i could incorporate them into christmas wrapping but they actually are for a good deed too!
50p from each sale goes to age concern which helps provide blankets, hot meals and heat advice to the aged so that they can survive winters.... 25,000 older people die from cold related illnesses every winter.
you can knit your own to contribute too. x
I finally got around to posting my autumn swap package at the weekend, (despite the post offices protests and unreasonable opening hours!) As my selected blogger is not from the UK (only hint you'll get!) I decided to theme it a little bit english autumn...
english roses from libertys...
rose and fig balm from topshop
ltd edition champagne marmite!
cosy 'seasonal' socks!
trio of muji scented candles. x
and gorgeous smelling vanilla spice moisteriser. x
i hope they like it! x
