look what we adopted...


Good morning everyone sorry I'm so late, I decided to wait until this morning to photograph my card and duh wouldn't you know it my batteries are completely flat...so plan B and I decided to show you what I bought instead or should that be adopted...you know how excited we have been about spending our first Christmas in our new house and together well we decided to put up two trees instead of one (told you we are like a couple of kids in a sweet shop lol)...so we have been hunting for traditional tree decorations for our 'kitchen tree' and found these amazing robins being made by my friend Naomi, aren't they just stunning, they are felted and so beautifully made too...would you believe these are only £2.50 each (I paid for these they werent freebies I promise you), we were looking at some felt ornaments at the weekend and they were £5-7.50 each and not as gorgeous as these, I must admit (slapped wrists Mina) I thought at that price they would look homemade or be tiny but I hang my head in shame for thinking that, they are so professional and a brilliant size and how well do they match our kitchen too... so we have our first ornaments for our kitchen tree, we just need about 30 more I reckon lol...hurry up Naomi and make something else...I'm going to make some rustic ornaments myself so watch this space...in the meantime you can see what Naomi has here...here's the direct link to the Robins too...right I will be back a bit later when my camera is all go so speak to you then
