Cosy, cosy, cosy.

I completely fallen in love with these Fair Isle berets. I'm now hoping someone is soon going to ask me what I'd like for my birthday (not until November so its a bit of a long shot!). I really, really , really need one, so hope they don't sell out!

The weather is dark and a bit wild here today and I'm feeling all cosy so inevitably I'm thinking ahead to the festive season already! These are my latest ebay treasures (as you know I'm not having so much luck in the local charity shops anymore) and I can't wait to display them at Christmas.(This one sums upthe Christmas feeling I aim for, well try to at least!)

(What a sweet message)

(Doesn't he look marvellous!)

Even better, my Country Living book has arrived from America today - joy in abundance! It looks absolutely gorgeous, total festive eye-candy for someone like me who thinks about it all year round! So that's my cosy Friday night in sorted, oh and the new Period Living to get through too. Bliss - I love Fridays!

Thanks for all the lovely messages about Barney's bump. The grazes are healing but still look pretty vicious and the poor mite has had to stay off school since it happened because he's come down with a tummy bug aswell. He's on the mend today though and is happily muching pasties with his grandad. Thanks so much, everyone's kind words meant a lot- oh and all the conker ideas - brilliant! Must do some of those these weekend. We're off to visit a farm with some friends so we'll take a basket for our finds. Hope everyone has a lovely weekend .

You've been busy, 3 posts in 5 days! Sorry to here about poor little barney's fall, whenever Ella really hurts herself badly, I try to be all be all motherly and ready to save the day, but while I'm cuddling her I always well up.
I know what you mean about charity shops, sometimes I think 'you must be joking, I'm not paying that much for it'.
You must send me your new address so I don't send your pay it forward gift to your old house when I get round to making it.

I'm glad to hear that the book looks like a good one as mine is on it's way to me right now. Your cozy evening sound perfect.

I just love those berets. I also like the felt ones with flowers on on the same website. What a good idea - my birthday is coming up in the next few weeks!
Great Christmas stuff too - I just love finding old christmas treasures.
Hope you having a lovely weekend.

Fab berets, unfortunately I seem to manage to look a complete twit in whatever hat I try to wear, but I'm still looking!

Hope Barney's feeling better.

Hi Steph,
Many thanks for the lovely comment you left on my post.
If you'd like to send me your email address, We can sort out the details for the hearts .i.e. how you'd like?
They come in packs of 7 and our now on my website under decorations. So if you like to buy them from there instead of contacting me. I don't mind, just let me know and I'll pop a little something extra in. They do come in all the different colours I do. But I just love the red, it's so Christmasie.
Look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes.
