Welcome to our blog.

….. Making pretty things
….. Simple living
….. Growing a family

Three children (17, 15, 13)*** Two parents *** one dog *** Country loving *** Cottage dwelling in the South-West of the UK. That’s us!

We’ve been blogging since January 2010, about everyday happenings that bring us joy.

Just a thought….

“A moment spent in wonder is worth a lifetime spent in awe.”

A polar bear, a dachshund and a reindeer.

Happy holidays.

      Thanks, Val. First time using pipecleaners to form the shape. Much easier to make the legs. Hopefully I’ll find an excuse to make some more animals.

  • Oh my, just too adorable for words! And i know the feeling of what we’ll go through to make little things for our kids, I generally end up staying up all night! Great to see you back at craft schooling Sunday and looking forward to seeing many more great projects from you in 2016!

      Thank you, Sara. I had so much fun making them. Used a slightly different technic, so doubly pleased at how they turned out. Looking for another excuse to make some more, but trying to avoid filling up their bedrooms.
