So here are some of my favourites:
Blueberry Park and all the simply gorgeous things Karen makes, but not actually bought anything. On Thursday I bought one of her fabulous Advent Calender kits for the boys and it arrived yesterday:
And I am not disappointed! It is a fabulous kit and I plan on making it up this weekend so we are all prepared for December!
Another shop I have long admired is Snapdragon:
A twitter friend, Charis Slade, is a design talent who knocks the socks off everything a big company produces!
I have been keenly watching her develop her feet range and I am saving my pennies to get one for us... we are like many families across the country, we have different surnames (2 marriages and 3 kids will do that). I am saving for a Our Family print to go on a wall I am planning to covering in photos in the kitchen...
I hope you take a look at all 3 of these talented designs, you will find gorgeous, handcrafted items make your family/friends smile!
Ok, so this may be a purely self indulgent blog post showcasing the gifts I want for Christmas..... if anyone is listening!
