so excited... my own matte art print!

i am so very excited... my Matte Stephens print arrived on Friday. This one is titled Waiting Again. I am such a fan of his work, I had great trouble trying to pick just one! Love the quirkiness and the colours, its so cool when art can make you feel great. Love it.

(Did I mention I am now buying myself a piece of art for my birthday each year - and this is the first. such a good idea!)

a christmas stocking... or two

so this year, even though I still have not put up a tree (I am saying that it is because Archie being not quite 18 months, and would destroy!), I have decorated the house in other ways. One is a lovely Eric Carle Advent calendar (gift from my loveliest if friends Michelle) and two - these stockings for my 2 boys. Now I would love to say that I made them, but alas I do not have that sewing skill that so many of my friends have, so I passed on this task to my adorable Mum, who produced these!
The fabric.... loving the fabric:
a. because it is red,
b. because it has typography on it and
c. beacuse it is created by the lovely Susan from spin spin handmade.  such a clever cookie! You can buy this from her etsy shop along with loads of other goodies.

merry merry and all that. xx

ps. the spotty fabric is from random fabric shop.
