New bits!

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Mine was spent carving pumpkins, (not quite as spectacular as the ones from my last post) constructing costumes, visiting friends and finished off nicely with a mammoth roast dinner with family for pre-birthday celebrations, as I'm spending the big '24' next weekend with the fella in a weekend at Centre Parcs! Can't wait!

A couple of exciting new winter-y inspired bits added to my Etsy shop you should know about:

Illustrated Christmas Cards! In sets of five or sold singularly, these feature a hand-painted snugly knit on a quality, FSC approved 325gsm card stock with envelopes ready to pop in the post. Blank inside for your own message/ words of wisdom/ poetry and love!

Plus, these beauties are flying! Pairs of microwavable pocket warmers, made with dust-free British-grown wheat, Rosemary essential oils, British tweed and my feather screen-printed linen on the backs of each. Heat them in the microwave for 1-2 mins and pop in your pocket or on those aches and pains for instant comfort!  I've already taken mine on a  nice few walks in the cold and they've been ultra snugly- these will make great Christmas pressies...

Get them in the shop here! X

Dates for your diary and halloween inspiration...

Oh, how time flies! It's quite horrifying how the weeks are speeding by. I'm getting ready for a nice busy (whisper!) Christmas, so thought I'd share a few dates coming up where I'll be showing my wares...but before we can even start to think about Christmas properly, here's a little inspiration for Halloween! 

Autumn is my favourite few months (nothing to do with my birthday coming up!) and these are great; will definitely be trying out one or two of these beauties...
