Dutch design

I have been doing a spot of internet browsing today and came across this great Dutch online shop BijzonderMOOI . I have seen these angels before, and I really love the pattern design on them, such a simple idea for a table setting. They also have beautful lanterns by the same designer
These candle holders would be great anytime of the year not just Xmas

And well I am seriously tempted by this tape, I've been using some Christmas tape from MUJI on my parcels this year and it brightens my day as well as my customers.

And my final pick is this light shade made from blankets,I really like the way they've used blanket stitch seams and left them on the outside to be seen. We are decorating in the New Year and I am wondering how I could make my own because as gorgeous as they are, they just aren't in my price range.
Well the snow here is falling once again adding to the 6 inches already covering the ground, it really is properly Christmassy here in the Chilterns, very picture postcard and I shall brave the cold tomorrow to bring you some pictures.

Just in case you were wondering where on earth I have got to, it has been snowing here........

no not the white fluffy kind, but orders for cushions. I have been working flat out lately and had to employ Laura to overlock 30 covers for me. Sales from my ebay shop have been non stop although they finally seem to be easing now, which is double what I was doing last year. On top of that I've done two fantastic fairs with the girls at More than a Mama. Thankyou to everyone who came to both fairs they have been so well attended and the evening one was absolutely jammed at one point, we had so many ladies trying to shop at once.
Yesterday we put up our tree and Laura made gingerbread, and today we are going for a bit of Xmas shopping, mixed in with dress shopping for Sarah.
