Happy Christmas!

Opened the last door on the Playmobil Calendar this morning. Father Christmas is now ready to go!
I hope you all have a great Christmas. Thank you for all your lovely comments over the last year. Jane x

The best thing about Christmas for me has to be decorating the house.
Every year I add a few more bits to my collection either
homemade or bought.
1. Vintage stocking, tree stocking by Samantha Stas, Santa
by my little'un!
2. Tree decorations by Fisher Price-excellent!
3. Paper snowflake, vintage angel, stained glass effect angel I cobbled together last Christmas from acetate and sweet wrappers!
4. Playmobil Santa from this years advent calendar. I don't know who's more excited each morning, me or the children! This years lego Christmas decorations.
5. My gorgeous Little Wanderer by the brilliant Yoshitomo Nara dressed up ready for Christmas.

3 More Days to Go!

The String Shop will be closing for Christmas on
Friday 16th of December.
Order a print this week and receive a free pack of greetings cards!
I'm afraid I currently only deliver within the UK unless you
are Santa Claus!
Merry Christmas from Hubert and his friends!

Winter Wonderland

The New Nutcracker Suite by Ogden Nash and Ivan Chermayeff 1962.

The Happy Owls illustrated by Celestino Piatti 1965.

Two great wintery books.
I am usually feeling pretty festive by now but I'm struggling this year. I think it may be down to the unusually mild weather.
