Happy it's March!
While the weather is definitely changeable, we're very happy it's March. Spring is on its way and with it comes some new additions to our stock.
We're hanging onto the bulk of the new things for a few more days so it can all be displayed just right as we want it to have the best impact.
However, one delivery is hanging on the wall already, and although it's only just March we believe these are an excellent alternative to an Easter egg for children.
These cut-out-and-make animal sets are really fabulous. Designed by Madeleine Rogers under the "Mibo" brand in Brighton they're a great way of spending some time with the children over the Easter holidays and will look brilliant on a shelf in their bedroom afterwards. They first caught my eye in Elle Deco which featured the set of Christmas creatures.
Choose from the Rabbits or Chicks for a lovely springtime treat for children ages 6 and over, although we know many adults who would be happy to while away a Sunday afternoon with this project...
Other sets include such charming creatures as "Fru Fox" and Wallace the sleepy eyed owl...
Each set of 3 is £6 and each set of 4 animals is £7.
Another wonderful idea from Mibo are the Fox and Lion tea towels...use them in the kitchen or cut out, sew and stuff to make your own little animal.
Great rainy-day projects, but let's not hope for too many of those ;)
