from bali

I am seriously sweating it out in bali, but it is all worth it,
not only for the time spent with my god-daughter and family, but for all the treasures I am finding for the stores.
these great plates are new in store,
and there will be lots more to come in the next weeks...

help through crisis!

Anyone who has seen the movie 'like water for chocolate' knows a crisis can cause excessive crocheting?
In my case it seems there was excessive baking happening for a while,
which is probably why I was attracted to these lovely measuring cups!

and everyone knows nothing goes better with biscuits and cake than a cup of tea....
and nice mugs are very important to make the experience even better.......

and if you're not a tea bag person, this little 'tea for one' would certainly make you feel better just by looking at it......

and this dress has nothing to do with tea and cakes, unless you want to wear it to a tea party!

all items available now

Ann Wood

Ann Wood came to my attention a couple of years ago, we had been selling these gorgeous little birds in the store, but they were copied from Ann Wood, unbeknowns to me.
As soon as I found out I stopped buying them and returned any we had left to the 'copiers' and then proceeded to send Ann a message letting her know what had happened.
This camping shoot shows you how incredibly clever she is, makes me want to go camping!
