Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal

No no no…not filthy … but cuddly, adorable, cute, sweet, loveable, cheeky, funny and oh so much more.. Our animals, our pets, are part of our family, and they deserve a Christmas too don’t they. And not just a few spare giblets, although Im sure they would be grateful for a few as well as some other fine treats. Our pets are often spoilt, and rightfully so, because we love them, all of them, big and small. So this...

Our Best Christmas Jumpers in 2019

I know it’s a bit weird – Best Christmas Jumpers is a bit of an oxymoron, isn’t it? But that’s rather the point – Christmas Jumpers are supposed to be awful. They were once a thing of style, and then they became laughably questionable… and now they’ve swung full circle. We LOVE a terrible Christmas jumper. The Best Christmas Jumpers are truly hideous, and yet come the Christmas season we don...

Christmas Candles, Lanterns and Lights to Make Your House Twinkle

Christmas, above any other time in the year, is the time we love to banish the dark days and chilly nights with twinkly lights, Christmas Candles and gorgeous lanterns. We all have our favourites, from the more traditional filament bulbs to the modern bright LED spectacular, cheerfully coloured or the simplicity of white. Christmas Candles give our home a warm glow (and sometimes a lovely scent to boot), and lanterns take our thoughts...

In beautiful pure white ceramic but with an unexpected splash of...

Advent Calendars for Grown-Ups!

Well we can’t let the kids have all the fun. We are all over the Advent Calendars for Grown-Ups. It’s a horrible dark winter morning, you’re out of bed at way-too-early o’clock; what better way to cheer yourself up before you head out into the cold and wet than to open a little door full of joy – that is ALL FOR YOU? I mean, some self-indulgence now and again never goes amiss (‘self-care’ I believe we call it these days)....

Traditional Advent Calendars We Love

Is it just me? When I grew up everyone had ‘Traditional Advent Calendars’ – you opened the door and saw a picture. And you loved it, right? Or maybe it had pockets and there was a small chocolate or tiny toy on each day? Often re-using the same one each year. Over the last few years, more and more Advent Calenders have been cropping up – from beauty to alcohol, from toys such as Lego to film-themed such as Star...
