Buy Handmade this Christmas

Inpsired by this lovely video on etsy https://www.etsy.com/blog/uk/2013/11/26/christmas-creative-coats/, I thought I would share a few photos of button making.

All my pieces are handmade by me, with care and thought.

You can buy from me in my etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Bigbluebed

Half Term

Last week was half term and therefore my daughter and I were off school/work. Hoorah!


So we ....


had fun at Halloween.

And we....

went to London.
Up at 6.20am. Got the train. Walked to Borough Markets. Tasted food, Bought fudge. Convent Garden. Silver men sitting. Gold men standing. Giant baubles. Tintin Shop. Dr Martens. Regent Street. Lovely old cars going to Brighton soon. Hamleys. Monster High Doll. Lots of people. Aaagh!  Natural History Museum. Queued in the rain. But worth it. Lovely meal in the restaurant. Well worth a visit.  Round and round the exhibits. Up an escalator into a volcano. Lots of stuffed animals. Is it really a Dodo? Maybe not. Nice museum shop. Harrods sparkling with lights in the rain. Insided toy shop is better than Hamleys. Another Monster High doll.  Pot of tea in the Disney Cafe. Very nice. Christmas shop. Train home. Back home at 10.10pm. Sleep.

And of course in Dr Martens I got my


BOOTS!
