An excusable horsey moment

Need I say more then I love horses best of all the animals, I love horses they're my friends? If you haven't seen this advert you may not know what I'm on about, but trust me it's cool.

I wanted to put together a few things what I do like. Even if you don't like a horse you can still appreciate them I'm sure......
I am a huge Bonbi Forest fan. I think it's the horses and creativity rolled into one....

While Ingemar is swedish, dont feed him swedish berries. He'll get hyper
ashita creates quirky jewellery. I particularly like this locket 

Shop Sakura is for all your miniature sweet/supply needs!

Another successful day!

A third trip to Greenwich market started slowly, but after a mad lunchtime rush I was seriously concerned that I might run out of stock! Now having cut my teeth on the Greenwich market I am feeling the passion for jewellery design and selling big time. What a feeling to create something that someone will be given for Christmas or wear about the place. 

I've been there for three weeks now, and it looks like it has come to an end.  The place we were selling was only hosting stalls for The Christmas period so if anyone knows somewhere similar I can set up pitch let me know. 

Also, The Little Paper Box boyfriend, Tom, branched out into selling vintage teacards on the stall. We have some on our wall and I LOVE them so we thought we would see if other folk were as crazy as we. It seems they are.Everyone we sold too went dreamy eyed over the cards, remembering the good old days....hmmm

The Cambodian Guar. Now extinct in the wild.

Hawfinch. Last seen East coast in Irgerland

Asian animals

Both sold!
Wrong address - whoops

Lemon jasper, faceted coral on gold fill chain

Flourite on sterling silver

Yes, everyone tried to buy the books...argh

Hello Christmas hazel nuts, yes please thank you very much.

There is only one thing to own this Christmas. That thing is one MASSIVE pile of nuts. Almond, hazel, brazil and brainy walnuts all piled up in an impenetrable fortress of nuts.

Don't forget the crackers. I have discovered trying to break them with your teeth is painful and pointless, it also takes the enjoyment out of the whole Christmassy nutty situation.

The very first thing I have EVER won!

.....apart from a stale Christmas cake in 1988.

I had to mention that I was the lucky winner of Stacie Swift's giveaway last weekend.
I was unfeasibily excited. I have entered countless raffles, tombolas, prize draws and GMTV competitions and not won a jot! Stacie Swift has hopefully broken this spell!

Stacie is a brilliant illustrator based in the most wonderful London city. I beg you check out her blog as it makes for good reading/looking.

And here is my Stacie Swift hoard for all to see.
