Fairies...



Just a quick post before I go off to work and surround myself in all things Christmassy, last night I was flicking through e bay when I found some fairies for sale. When I was little, many moons ago, we had a lovely fairy that sat on top of our tree, she was a little dolly with blinking eyes a beautiful white dress and fine silver tinsel. There on e bay were some fairies like ours and they were going for....£72.....gasp!!!! Our fairy would have cost about 2/11 old money 30p nowadays, So if anybody has one of these little fairies lurking about in the attic please take good care of her, a little heirloom.

Yesterday I come home to find two parcels waiting for me, one was a swap and one a buy, all gorgeous and so well made (piccies to follow) It's my weekend off this week and we're putting our outdoor lights up, usually we have all white ones but this year I've bought coloured ones for a change.

Must dash now  bye  Lucey xx

If it isn't the swap parcel that has arrived keep an eye out for another as your Secret Santa has let me know that they've posted your gift!
