Have been busy re-stocking this morning after the weekend "rush"! It was lovely to get some sales, all very exciting.
Have put up two snowmen, both made from an Aran jumper and both with their own little characters:
I'd like to call this one Mrs Snowman because of that rather fetching hat, but really it could be either gender. When you think how children, and adults, just grab what they can to dress their snowman after all the excitement of a fresh layer of snow, the rolling of the snowball around the garden or park to make it bigger and bigger, who cares how it ends up looking! Adding the bay leaves, heart and little jingling bag of sparkly stars just seemed to add to the thrill of Christmas.
So if the one above is Mrs this should be Mr! I love his smiley face, he looks really happy standing there with his twig stuffed stocking and jingling heart decorations!
The dolly-peg pixies and Santas seemed to fly off the shelf so I've made something a little different - angels. I think these look quite lovely:
