Dino Jungle

Last weekend I bought Scarlett a big toy dinosaur, that roars (yes, I only have myself to blame) at a second hand toy stall. I told her we'd make it a jungle for it later in the week. By Wednesday, she could not wait any more and brought down the contents of her craft box and said 'right, now we're going to make dino-roar's jungle Mummy!'. So we did. It was excellent fun and required just some paints, tissue paper, pva glue (lots), some glitter and gems. We used the cardboard box our weekly shop of veg came in, which was a perfect size. As different elements dried, we planned the next bit and it took all day, in a very good way! Scarlett was very proud of the result and has been playing with it ever since. This week she wants to make a house, I'd better buy some more pva!

Lettie Belle at Somerset House!

We are so excited to have been selected to have Lettie Belle cushions in the Christmas Arcade at Somerset House, London! This will be on at the same time as the fabulous ice rink, and is a chance to pick up Christmas gifts which aren't usually found on the high street. Our new Christmas designs will be on sale there, and are coming soon on our website too! Christmas Arcade at Somerset House, from 16 November - 6 January

Autumn Tree

Here is Scarlett decorating our newly purchased wood and canvas tree, from the very gorgeous website, Sisters Guild. It is very sturdy and comes with a wooden stand. As soon as it arrived we began decorating it with an autumn theme. Scarlett used crayons on the trunk and I made some leaves to hang from branches, which she drew on. It was a lovely activity and we will be redecorating regularly. Next stop, Halloween, and I already have the gems and sparkle for Christmas! If you haven't already do visit Sisters Guild, it is a beautiful treasure trove!

Reluctant Model

Here are the results (and out takes)of a little photo shoot we did recently! Scarlett doesn't quite have the natural patience to be a model(and she is only 3), nevertheless I was pleased with the final pics. She was paid handsomely for her time with an 'F for Flamingo' cushion!
