Happy New Year!

Just a quick hello, and to say Happy New Year to everyone! No, we haven't left the building. We have had a fantastic Christmas and New Year visiting our family in South Africa and celebrating a certain big birthday. Now that we are back in old Blighty, life has resumed as normal and we had a great spring clean in the shop after having sold a couple of key pieces of furniture.

Roses to remember my Granny, who sadly passed away last month after a wonderful 93 years. RIP Granny.

Boxes of handmade natural soaps wrapped in vintage paper and trimmings.


last week we also had a fashion shoot in our shop. I will post photos when we receive them.

I will leave you with a few of my favourite memories made this christmas in South Africa. Thanks for looking everyone and great to be back.
