Christmas is coming!

Christmas is coming hurrah! Here are just a few of the bits and bobs family, we've been making for the shop in Devon. The idea has been to re-use & recycle old decorations and scraps of fabric for a vintage, homely feel. I hope you like it as much as we've enjoyed making it all!

Handmade scented lavender hearts made by yours truly - for decorations & gifts, decorated with buttons and festive ribbons

Hand papier mached, painted, glossed and be-ribbonned with love!

Really enjoyed making these as they look so vintagey. Great way to re-use old baubles and make pretty displays in your home.

Beautiful hand sewn pin cushions by the talented Felicity Gray, using vintage scraps and shiny old buttons!

 I handpoured these scented wax teacup candles, using old crockery, mis-matched cups and saucers.


Tom Green's own window display, with a hamper full of treats including gifts from the shop and wrapped presents! Chopping boards or hand hewn peg rails make gorgeous gifts.

Hand printed wrapping paper and cards above & below. My sister and I made music paper bunting too - a cheap and cheerful way to use old paper and string (See earlier post for a step-by-step guide!)


And finally - Green's at night as we were setting up the Christmas Window and display.
