Pictures and more to follow... I just wanted to get in a blog before the new year :)
We have been having a fantastic time relaxing, it has been utter bliss, I had forgotten what it felt like to relax in the evenings.
Big hugs to all my blogging friends and those who pop by. Hope you have all had a lovely Christmas!

I discovered these items back in September (that feels like it was a long time ago now) and have been patiently waiting until they were available to buy. You can imagine my excitement when they were in stock and my order arrived the next day :)
I can't decide which one I love most so will have to keep one of each :)
My lovely white business room resembles a cardboard house at the moment. Full to the brim with stock and orders waiting to go out. So still no pictures for you all. I have my eye on a few bits to finish it off but who knows when I will get the time.
Any spare moments I can grab are being spent with my little girl, she will start full time school in January and I'm going to miss her terribly, but I know she is ready to go, it's lovely to see what a social little butterfly she is growing into and she just loves school.
I have decided to start a book now of ideas of all the things I want to do with her before Christmas and that includes lots of creative stuff. She is a very creative little thing who is desperate to be able to knit and sow like her mummy. She is for ever making clothes for her dolls from scrap pieces of paper, balloons or plastic, I'm trying to think of a little creative kit I could make for her. We have tried fabric but she gets disappointed when she is unable to manipulate it. Maybe felt would be a good idea... any suggestions would be of great help!

That is if you look very closely under hoards of stock, cardboard and bubble wrap. Business is VERY busy, stock is piratically flying out, our feature in the not on the high street Christmas catalogue is fantastic and very productive. I felt very proud when I received the catalogue :)
The business room is finished and thankfully it happened just in time. It works a treat and is so organised, in fact as I am spending so much time in it it's a good job really. No time for pictures I'm afraid. The room is a real pleasure to work in and is exactly how I planned... which made me very happy, the control freak that I am hehe.
I have decided I want lots of books to read over the Christmas holiday break, I came across this one via Amazon. I had it pre ordered and have been very good and not read it yet. I wanted to add it to my post to just inform anyone who is interested in it that The Book People are selling it for £4.99, I have already bought another copy for my mum from them, plus another lovely book Cherry Cake & Ginger Beer.
We have also launched our Christmas collection early this year, there is still more coming and lots of lovely new stock to add to the website (that is when I get a spare hour or two).
Ella loved making these paper chains up.
Thank you again for your lovely comments on my previous post, no news on the moving front but with the current climate we are not surprised.
Hopefully I will have chance to resume normal blogging in the new year but sadly it will carry on being rather sporadic in the run up to Christmas.
P.S We have a free UK postage offer on at the moment, but it end this Friday.
Bye for now.

I didn't really know where it was going but just went with the flow and I was really pleased with the end results. It was a great success... she cried with happiness:)
Heart filled with lavender from our garden.
I have been intending to write a post for ages but have a to do list that is verging on ridiculous. so I threw caution to the wind and decided instead of editing the photographs for some of my Christmas stock I would do some blogging... I miss it sooo much.
I am currently surrounded by Christmas stock, our Christmas collection this year is about three times the size of normal so as you can imagine it is very mad here.
I hope you are all well, please accept my sincere apologies for the lack of comments on your blog posts, I do keep having a quick peek but will try harder to leave a message.

Well I have been for two weeks now but came back to a huge amount of work to be do for the business... Christmas stuff.
West Runton beach
We had a fantastic time, lots of fun, relaxing and enjoying being with each other.
Only a short post I'm afraid but I did want to show you some of my favourite pictures of the holiday... I LOVE NORFOLK!
A fun trip on the 'Happy Train' around Cromer.
Yummy ice cream and feeding the ducks.
Bye for now

My scrummy new Greengate melamine which Ella loves!
Our first crop of home grown vegetables... delicious!
Thank you for all of your lovely comments. I was planning on showing some of the stuff I will be adding to the give away but as you have probably guessed, I have run out of time. I will leave the give away open and will do it once I return from my hols. So if you have yet to add a comment please do so :) Sadly I have not had a chance to check up on every ones blogs yet so a huge sorry for that. I will have a long relaxing look when I'm back.
Warm wishes to you all and fingers crossed for some sunny weather!

The room is a rather awkward shape which is dominated by our huge fitted wardrobes (you may of read it an earlier post that I bought them when I was pregnant, silly me). Thin and tall... limited light and high ceilings.
After not finding a shelf that was suitable I decided to design this one... I even drew the plans out free hand, Jeremy was impressed by that bit hehe. I'm planning to have another one made for the bathroom too. Plus a little bedside table with a shelf for her favourite books.
The storage boxes are perfect for storing her toys. Push along dog has his pride of place.. he is a perfect seat when siting and playing with said dolls house.
This was my latest revamp... one wooden cooker + 4 hours with a few tins of F & B (Farrow and Ball) paint = pretty pink cooker, much more desirable. It was even met with a squeal of excitement from Ella :)
I adore these pictures, they provided great inspiration for Ella's room. Yet another vintage find with a little help from F & B.
The funny thing is that her room was finished last year, yet I have never got around to taking pictures. It made me realise how fantastic blogging is for encouraging you to capture the moment. I'm planning to show you lots more pictures as we continue to decorate the house. Hopefully the sun will be shinning on those days :)
I hope you enjoyed Ella's little tour, she will be very impressed to see her room on the computer!
Bye for now

P.S. The magical part is how the room always manages to stay rather tidy... plus a fairy sneaks in every night to set up a different activity to play with in the morning :)
