turning off the fairy lights

 Twelfth Night finally, and time at last to take down the tree. I'm usually a little sad to see it go but this year I'm more than ready to say goodbye. But poor Edie cried her heart out when I told her the pink tree in her bedroom was being put away, I didn't have the heart to ruthlessly squash it back into the box then and there so we compromised on doing it later (I have the suspicion that Edie's later is much later than mine).

Lola, in one of the rare moments today when she wasn't right up in my face. Taking the decs down = dog stress, look, she looks worried right here
My lovely friend Fiona made this for Edie.
Milk and biscuits soon perked Edie up, she's fickle like that.
 So now onwards into January and in the spirit of new things I opened my etsy shop again. Right now there's just one lonely print all alone but there are others that will follow soon.


  1. Ooo, loving that milk and biscuit plate x

  2. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU TOO!! Thanks so much for your kind words of encouragement, as always! :) I think you should take your fiery incident as a good sign - this is going to be a year of EXCITEMENT and BLAZING COURAGE!! And those adorably chubby little toddler hands dunking chocolate animals is the cutest thing I have seen in a LONG time! xxx

  3. Aw, lovely pictures I also put away my Christmas decor yesterday, hate to let go of the festive spirit. Hope you have a great new year, I'm sure its going to be a great year for your etsy shop as well. kisses mini lemon.
