My Birthday "Season" continues ...

I had seen some really cute handcrafted quirky items in a magazine (Country Living I think). When my sister asked me what I would like for my birthday, I referred her to the website along with suggestions of things that I really loved. She was going to give me my gift last weekend at our niece's birthday party, but the plasterer messed that up, so she posted it to me, and look what arrived this morning! She also sent me their catalogue, and the Christmas things are just to die for (anyone who knows me will know about my Christmas obsession!) I love it all!

The website is : - take a peep and let me know what you think! I just love the wooden things and the cloth items, especially the mice, hares and hens! They might do well on my Christmas wish list this year!

In the same postal delivery, the postman brought me two cat food boxes full of these:

the new knobs for my kitchen units! Not really exciting I know, but it's all these little things that come together to make my (hopefully) dream kitchen! The plaster is very nearly dry now, just a few damp patches lower down, so maybe some painting and tiling this weekend and then it will really start to take shape!

  3. I really do love them both Joannie, thank you soooooo much! You chose very well indeed. You can never have too many hearts!

    I'd never heard of birthday "seasons" before I knew you Sue! I'm a fan though! I accept no blame whatsoever, I only mentioned that I love everything - that goes for you too Suzie Boo (who has already phoned for a catalogue!!!)

    I am delighted with my knobs, especially as they are oak and less than half the price of beech ones from B&Q! Thank heavens for ebay!!!
