THEY'RE HERE!

Hello all,

Happy Wednesday to you and apologies for the lack of post yesterday - I had the busiest day off ever, it was pretty manic but I managed to conquer a rather mighty to do list - so well done me!

Anyway, it's a rather exciting day today - as you can now pre-order my new hand illustrated succulent kits from my Etsy shop! I have a few up for pre-order at the special introductory price of £28, they'll be  £34 once they're fully up and running so grab one now before they go!

Each kit comes with everything you need to plant up and care for your own little succulent, including a sweet little care leaflet.

They make an awesome gift {or treat for yourself} as they are super easy to care for by even the least green fingered of individuals AND they look very pretty on a desk or sunny windowsill!

You can get your hands on one here.

Let me know what you think won't you! :)
xo.

**p.s. If you'd like to see more - Harriet got a sneaky preview of my soon to come larger succulent kit & has done a blog post with a lovely snap of it here!**

Hello all,

I'm back in the swing of things now having had a rather lovely 8 days off and what better way to kick things off post Prague than with some weekday cuteness?

It's no secret that I'm an uber lover of cute animals {this Pinterest board says it all...} so when I unwrapped my little birthday gifts from my pal Harriet I couldn't have been more happy!

She was kind enough to purchase me these super awesome collar clips from another fave of mine's Etsy shop - the wonderful Zoe - of Ladybirdlikes. I'm in love {excuse the pun} and can't wait to get myself some more pretty collared tops to wear them with!
Zoe also included a sweet little pastel pink bird brooch with my collar clips too which is super cute!

LadybirdLikes have the most awesome collar clips & necklaces many of which I'm rather partial to - here are my two current faves from the newest collection...
1//. PUGS!
2//. KITTIES!

Not only was I lucky enough to receive those beautiful heart collar clips but Harriet also gave me a set of each of her *super duper new* animal nail transfers which I was literally over the moon about as I'd been lusting after those little critters since she mentioned she was going to be getting them printed a little while ago.

As you can see - I couldn't decide which animal to cover my little nails in, so I decided on all three & in doing so have myself something of an animal party on my hands right now!
Harriet sells three different sets of animal nail transfers catering to each camp of animal lovers out there {well, fluffy animal lovers - no reptiles around here}. Each pack contains 40 critters of varying sizes {awesome if you have abnormally teeny nails like me}, they are super easy to apply & they look really good! The detail is amazing!

Thank you SO much Harriet!

If you would like to get your hands on some of these puppies {lol} you can just click the link below each of the photos & pop a set {or three} in your basket! simples.

PLUS - I'm told that the third part of my present is yet to arrive...I'm pretty stoked to see what else it could be that could top trump my first two ace pressies! Watch this space...OH AND...how could I forget, she bequeathed upon me a little bundle of new succulent babies from her recent charity shop hoard!! Yay. :)
So, if you have a birthday coming up - definitely get yourself down to Etsy and have a gander at the rest of Zoe & Harriet's work {oh and you might as well have a little browse of mine too whilst you're there!}, because everyone loves a unique gift and its really important that we all support handmade, and help small businesses grow & flourish!

It's awesome having such talented & thoughtful friends.

Until tomorrow.

xo.





{new} to ONR!

Hello all,

It's a fairly grey Wednesday - which is sad, I can't wait until Spring fully kicks in and the weather gets just a little warmer...I don't know about you, but I'm fed up of having a red nose all the time!

Anyway, today I'm just popping by to share with y'all a little new product that's been added to my humble Etsy shop. Some of you may have seen a picture of the new item I posted on Twitter & Instagram with a choice of two designs. I asked everyone to vote as to which one they preferred, so thank you to all of you who voted!

I've actually listed both designs as the votes were pretty tied...so if you'd like to buy one of these little beauties - perfect for popping down all of those things you want the most - you can get your hands on one HERE! {it even comes with a hand little pen!!}.
I hope you like it - and do let me know if you have an idea for a third design! I'm always open to ideas!

xo.


{YAY or NAY} baby clouds...

| UPDATE: | You can now buy one of these cheeky little chaps here!
 Hello all,

Happy post halloween Thursday...I hope you all had wild nights? I, had a night in alone, watching the horrendous rain outside, wrapped in a blanket, sewing - thinking that old hurricane Sandy might be making an appearance in Southampton.

Well, what I was sewing neatly and methodically were these little fellows...miniature versions of my happy cloud cushion. I made the first one with some excess fabric left over from making a big one for a lovely little order which I just sent off to Israel!

Anyway, the reason for this post was to test the waters and see what you lovely readers think of the little chaps....I ask, YAY or NAY to selling them on Etsy? Would you buy one to keep you company on your desk/bed and encourage you to smile even when the weather is awful these coming months?

Also, how about a mobile for a baby's nursery, or just a single cloud as a gift for a new born, or a stocking filler for kids {and adults too!}.
Any thoughts?
Also, what do you think of the tag? They are completely new to my products and I rather like them - gotta love a good heart!
I'd really love your input on this one :)

xo.
