What I love this week...

I recently made a discovery on Facebook - a little gem of a shop, that is overflowing with the most charming and adorable creations and I just have to share it with you...

Amy Harrold is the very talented lady behind Pixie Craft Dolls, where she creates magical one-off crocheted dolls that are just beautiful.

Every doll Amy creates is unique, and you can tell just by glimpsing the photos, how much love she puts into her work. Each of her dolls seems to have their own personality - and they are sure to become treasured items.

As well as creating individual dolls, Amy also makes lovely scenes presented in box frames which would look stunning in a baby's nursery. Prices in her Etsy shop range from just £3.50 for her wonderful crocheted biscuits to £39-40 for a box frame. The 10" individual figures are around £20-22.

You can visit Amy's shop on Etsy by clicking here: but if you're thinking about Christmas gift shopping be quick as she will be closing her order book at the end of November!

Brand new gift range now available...

I'm really proud of my new range of prints - these have been a labour of love, and something I've been working on for ages to get just right...

There are 11 designs to choose from, with styles suitable for all sorts of occasions: new baby, christening, wedding, anniversary, Christmas, birthday and more. They're all created to order and personalised with your own names and dates - plus you can also have your own personal message printed onto the back too.

Each one is printed onto high quality crisp white cotton, and stretched onto a woodgrain effect 6" hoop. They're finished with a handsewn button and dressed with white ribbon so that they're ready to hang straight out of the box.

I very much hope you'll like them - you can see the whole range on the PhotoFairytales site here.

Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear from you!

Growing old - disgracefully

Call me a weirdo, but ever since I was a little girl I've often wondered about what type of old lady I would be... like I said, call me a weirdo!

I remember seeing Margaret Rutherford in Blithe Spirit and thinking she was probably the coolest old lady I'd ever seen - all tweed skirts and bead necklaces swinging about: brilliant! I quite liked the idea of being one of those 'stuff and nonsense' type of old ladies - the kind that can say anything and unconsciously intimidate everyone they meet.

Then, of course, there's the elegant Audrey Hepburn type - impeccably dressed, silk stockings, hair in a chignon.... I think to be this kind of old lady you have to be that kind of young lady, and I've never ever been able to pull off the groomed look so I think this is going to be unachievable.

Mad cat lady with lots of carrier bags, wearing pop socks and a pack-a-mac? Well, that's probably an easier look! Plus you get to stop and stare at people (it's only old ladies and toddlers that can get away with this), and that's quite a fun idea....

And then there's the hair - my daughter is convinced that old ladies have white fluffy curly hair so that they look like clouds, ready for when they float up to heaven (morbid child). Perhaps I will have a purple rinse? Or dye it jet black. Who knows...

Whatever I end up being, I sincerely hope I'll be a cool old lady. In the meantime, there's a fetching tweed cape they're selling in LaRedoute - maybe I should start collecting my old lady costume in readiness!

Sarah ;)
